Being Ford’s premium sort of offering in the current rapidly growing and evolving SUV market, the 2019 Everest definitely puts much emphasis on its quality, luxury and refinement matched to its exceptional practicality and space as well.

Coscharis Motors’ GM of Marketing and Communications, Abiona Babarinde gave a statement at the unveiling saying;

“We are excited the new Everest will be joining our local line-up. The new Everest will provide Ford with an important position in the SUV segment, it is a segment which continues to grow in Africa, as well as around the world. Consumers are opting for versatile, family-oriented vehicles that suit their active lifestyles,”

He also stated that;

“With the New Everest, we have raised the game even further by introducing subtle yet effective styling updates with the eye-catching exterior, providing a more refined and luxurious cabin environment, adding several new trend-setting technologies to the already feature-packed range, and building on the outgoing model’s superb comfort and ride refinement with a revised suspension set-up. More so, the Everest comes in diesel engines, which is what some of our oil services customers have been yearning for, as it is more ideal for access into highly inflammable locations than its petrol counterpart.”
