The 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel engine has been carried over from the last-gen model that produced 210 PS and 500 Nm of peak power and torque. The bigger, 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine makes 250 PS and 600 Nm of peak power and torque. In the base Sport version, you will get the smaller engine and in the Platinum trim, you will get the larger unit. Both these engines come mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. There is a dedicated 4×4 drivetrain that allows users to reach any place in Everest. The price of the Sport version is around R1 million and the Platinum version costs over R1.1 million. What are your thoughts on this?
