Step up to the Sport level in the 2023 Ford Everest lineup and you’ll have to pay $69,090 (MSRP), but you score big improvements over the models below.
The biggest being the 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine, which comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The towing capacity, on all Everest models, is 750 kg for an unbraked trailer and 3,500 kg for a braked trailer.
The engine adds power and torque over the twin-turbo models (Ambiente and Trend), with 184kW of power and 600Nm of torque, but that comes at a cost, with combined fuel consumption officially set at 8, 5L/100km.

You also score additional equipment to help justify the extra $3800, including blacked-out exterior features, sport front seats with leather trim throughout, heated and cooled front seats, 20-inch alloy wheels and a 10-speaker audio system. This is in addition to keyless entry and push-button start, LED headlights and daytime running lights, an 8.4-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system. 0 inches with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite navigation.
If you don’t want 20-inch wheels, you can choose 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires on the Sport model at no extra cost. Sadly, you’ll have to pay extra for a tow kit if you want one—it’s $1750, and includes a tow bar and integrated brake controller, but really should be standard at this price.
Like the lower grades, the Sport offers plenty of safety tech such as high-speed AEB with pedestrian, cyclist and intersection detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, corner monitoring rear cross-traffic alert, low-speed reverse AEB, a rear-view camera, and front and rear parking sensors, plus nine airbags, including a three-row curtain airbag cover on full-length.
