South Africans love outdoor adventures and vehicles that can effortlessly take them through the beauty of this country with the people they love. With that said, it is no surprise that the seven-seater Ford Everest was one of the best-selling large SUVs in 2020.
The Everest has built its name as the perfect family vehicle that can help you conquer unexpected obstacles and allow you to discover what’s beyond the end of the road with ease. Now, Ford South Africa added a Sport addition to the line-up, giving you a total of 9 derivatives to choose from!
The Everest Sport is designed to set itself apart as a muscular and dynamic SUV that not only shows off with its fully capable off-road ability but has the style to match! Based on the Everest XLT, the new Sport edition includes a bunch of visual enhancements to the exterior and in the cabin.
The new 2021 Ford Everest Sport includes the following exterior features:
- Black Mesh Grille
- Black Everest lettering badging on the bonnet
- LED headlights
- LED daytime running lights
- Ebony roof rails
- Black Mirror caps
- Sport badging at the base of the rear doors
- Black door handles
- 20 Inch Black Alloy Wheels
Stepping inside, you are welcomed by sporty leather seats, “Sport” embroidery on the front row seating and blue stitching on the dash topper, seats, steering wheel, and gear selector to add that special touch.
Under the bonnet, the Everest Sport is powered by the 2.0 Single-Turbo diesel engine generating an enthusiastic 132kW of power and 420Nm of torque. It is mated with a 10-speed automatic transmission, delivering strong performance and phenomenal fuel economy of 7.1L per 100km.
The 2021 Ford Everest Sport is available 4×2 and 4×4 and an electronic locking rear differential is fitted as standard in both. The 4×4 models benefit from the Terrain Management System which has off-road modes like snow, mud, and rocks to help you go even further. You will also qualify for a Free Introductory 4×4 course when purchasing a new 4×4 Everest at CMH Ford Gezina (limited time offer).
Customers have the following colours to choose from:

South Africans are more motivated than ever before to live each day to the fullest (to the extent that the current regulations allow of course). “The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly made many reconsider what’s truly valuable in life and these lessons give us reason to be positive about embarking on new beginnings and achieving our Everest!” says Dale Reid, Product Marketing Manager at Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA).
