Ford Everest UAE Launch Timeline
The Ford Everest is eagerly anticipated by SUV enthusiasts in the United Arab Emirates, with its launch expected to take place in the last quarter of 2023. This means that the car is likely to be available for purchase anywhere between October and December of that year. However, it is expected that the booking process for the Ford Everest may commence even before the official launch date.
The Ford Everest after its UAE launch is expected to become popular amongst a large section of the expatriate crowd from India. This is mainly due to the popularity that the previous gen Everest (called Endeavour) enjoyed in India for it’s capabilities. Ford in a way has chosen the perfect successor to the popular Ford Edge for this market given the buying demographic of the region.
The Ford Everest that is slated for release in the United Arab Emirates will be equipped with a 2.3-liter Turbo Petrol engine from Ford’s EcoBoost family. This powerplant is projected to deliver a robust 300 horsepower and an impressive 420 Nm of torque, making it a force to be reckoned with on the road. The transmission duties will be taken care of by a highly efficient 10-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, ensuring smooth and seamless shifting. To tackle the toughest terrain, the Ford Everest will come with a full-time four-wheel drive system and a low range transfer case, providing superior traction and stability in all driving conditions.
Ford Everest UAE Spec Features
The Ford Everest will come packed with an array of advanced features that will make it a highly capable and comfortable SUV. Some of its key features will include a spacious and well-appointed cabin, a state-of-the-art infotainment system with a large touchscreen display, premium audio system, and seamless smartphone integration. The vehicle will also be equipped with a full suite of driver-assistance technologies, such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert, to provide added peace of mind on the road. However it is important to note that some of the features may differ from the Australian spec car upon launch.

Pricing and Competition
The new Ford Everest is set to make its way into the market soon and is poised to take up a position below the Ford Explorer in the brand’s lineup in the United Arab Emirates. This development will effectively mark the replacement of the Ford Edge, with pricing expected to fall within a range of 130,000 AED to 170,000 AED. This places the Ford Everest in direct competition with several other models, including the highly anticipated Honda Pilot, the capable Toyota Prado, the reliable Nissan Pathfinder, and the trusted Toyota Fortuner. With the competitive pricing and its position in the market, the Ford Everest is expected to make a significant impact in the midsize SUV segment.
