Ford Australia has announced an update to its Everest SUV along with the return of the BaseCamp special edition.
Classified as MY21.25, the Everest BaseCamp is based on the Trend and limited to 450 examples nationally.
BaseCamp variants are available with two powertrain options starting with the 3.2-litre 143kW/470Nm five-cylinder turbo-diesel matched with a six-speed automatic. Alternatively, buyers can opt for the new 2.0-litre 157kW/500Nm bi-turbo four-cylinder oiler paired with a 10-speed automatic.
Ford says for an extra $2200, the BaseCamp gets $6000 worth of extra kit including a 76mm diameter black nudge bar, an LED light bar, snorkel, black roof-mounted carry bars, a Pioneer roof platform, Sunseeker awning and tow bar.
There’s also BaseCamp decals on both front doors, bolder grey painted grille, front bumper skid, rear bumper skid, fender vents and wheels.
As part of the revised range, Ford has added a rear-wheel drive version of the existing Sport grade powered by the 2.0-litre engine.
Further changes include a new chrome grille with grey mesh on Trend and Titanium models, with the latter also features Everest lettering on the grille.
The updated Everest range is due to arrive in showrooms in December.
