When we first laid eyes on the Ford Everest Wildtrak at the 2023 Bangkok International Motor Show, we couldn’t help but wonder if this rugged iteration of Ford’s midsize SUV was a perfect fit for the Thai market. It seemed to resonate with the crowd, and anticipation was high for its arrival. As we had the opportunity to experience it firsthand during a test drive in Vietnam back in June, the question persisted: Why would Ford send us to explore this exciting model if there wasn’t a possibility of it gracing our local roads?
The suspense has finally ended as Ford confirms that the 2024 Ford Everest Wildtrak 4×2 is now available at local dealerships in Thailand, introduced as an exclusive product offering with limited availability throughout the year. The price to own this beast of a machine is set at P2,369,000. What’s immediately striking about this model is the variant name boldly spelled out across the hood, ensuring it stands apart from other Everests on the road.
A Distinctive Design and Diverse Color Palette
Whether you opt for the striking Luxe Yellow, elegant Sedona White, sleek Meteor Gray, or the classic Absolute Black, the Everest Wildtrak’s interior is adorned with Cyber Orange accents that contrast beautifully with black upholstery and surfaces. It’s a design statement that ensures this model remains etched in memory, even after it has passed.
An Arrival Down Under
In an exciting turn of events, Ford’s more rugged version of the Everest is not limited to Southeast Asia. This model is set to conquer Australian terrain as well. Ford Australia has announced that the 2024 Ford Everest Wildtrak will be available “in limited numbers.” It will be powered by the robust 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine, and the vehicle will feature full-time four-wheel-drive for ultimate performance and control.
An Australian Debut
The arrival of the Everest Wildtrak is slated for the third quarter in Australia, which spans from July to September. The local market will be allocated 800 units of this thrilling model. Drawing inspiration from the popular Ranger variant, the Everest Wildtrak features a front-end design that includes a dark grey ‘H-bar’ bumper and distinctive LED fog lamps. This design exudes rugged elegance and a touch of adventure.
