A vehicle that has been anticipated by many in this region for years, the 2024 Ford Everest has finally made its way to UAE shores. Here are all the details that you need to know.
Replaces the Ford Edge in the UAE market
Another news to highlight is the conclusion of the Ford Edge’s presence in the UAE market. Marking this transition is the eagerly anticipated arrival of the 2024 Everest, which not only signifies the introduction of a new vehicle but also carries the responsibility of filling the void left by the departing Ford Edge. However, it’s important to note that this development is far from a drawback; in fact, it brings exciting prospects.
The 2024 Everest boasts a body-on-frame construction, setting it apart from its predecessor and making it particularly well-suited for off-road adventures – a pursuit that resonates with many SUV enthusiasts in the UAE. The local market has a penchant for venturing off the beaten track, and the Everest’s robust design and capabilities are perfectly aligned with this inclination.

Will Take the Fortuner+Prado Head-On
In various automotive markets, the combination of the Prado and Fortuner has undeniably held a position of dominance for quite some time. These two stalwarts have consistently commanded attention and market share across the globe. However, when we shift our focus to the dynamic regions of South East Asia and the vast expanse of Australia, a formidable contender emerges, capable of giving both the Prado and Fortuner a run for their money. That contender is none other than the Ford Everest.
As Ford Middle East sets its sights on expanding its presence in this part of the world, they are placing their trust in Everest’s proven track record against the Toyota twins. Ford Middle East harbors high hopes that the 2024 Ford Everest in UAE will replicate its success in South East Asia and Australia and take the Fortuner and Prado head-on like it has done in other markets.
2024 Ford Everest Gets Same Engine as Ranger
The UAE-spec Ford Everest will be equipped with a potent 2.3-liter Turbo Petrol engine hailing from Ford’s esteemed EcoBoost family. This formidable powerplant is anticipated to unleash an impressive 300 horsepower alongside a commanding torque output of 420 Nm, establishing it as a formidable presence on the UAE’s roads.
The transmission duties will be expertly handled by a highly efficient 10-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, ensuring a seamless and smooth shifting experience for drivers and passengers alike. In anticipation of tackling even the most challenging terrains, the Ford Everest will come equipped with a full-time four-wheel drive system and a low-range transfer case, thereby delivering unrivaled traction and stability across diverse driving conditions.
