Frame SUV for expeditions added to Ford range

Ford Australian subsidiary has developed a special version of the Everest BaseCamp

Ford now has a frame SUV adapted for expeditions. Australia’s Blue Oval has added a range of options to the Ford Everest for travelers. The special Everest was named BaseCamp; the special edition is limited to 450 copies.

The Ford Everest BaseCamp is technically no different from regular SUVs, but all-wheel drive is standard. “Expeditionary” Everest can be ordered with the old five-cylinder 200-horsepower (470 Nm) diesel with a volume of 3.2 liters, and with the new 213-horsepower (500 Nm) 2.0-liter biturbo engine on “heavy” fuel. Both units are combined with automatic machines – 6-speed and 10-speed, respectively .

Features of the equipment – the presence of a factory snorkel, a towing hitch, a power roof rack and a three-inch kengurin with an LED bar in front. Externally, the Everest BaseCamp is easily recognizable by its black five-spoke alloy wheels, as well as the lack of chrome parts. Along with the regular Ford Everest, the off-road-adapted SUV can pull trailers weighing up to 3000 kilograms.

The Ford Everest BaseCamp is based on the average Trend equipment, so the prices are quite humane: from 65 thousand Australian dollars (3.65 million rubles) for the version with a five-cylinder 3.2 diesel engine, and from 66.5 thousand dollars in local currency (3.74 million rubles ) for the version with a diesel “biturbo-four” 2.0. Compared to a regular Everest with similar equipment, the surcharge will be about AU $ 10,000.
