MELBOURNE, November 12, 2020 – With more and more Australians taking road trips and choosing off-roading adventures, the Ford Everest makes the perfect companion.

“We know the travel habits of Australians are changing in the wake of COVID-19, and more and more Aussies will be looking for road trip adventures. The Everest offers a smooth ride on the highway, plus genuine off-road, off-the-beaten track capability,” said Andrew Birkic, President and CEO, Ford Australia and New Zealand. “Now, with the Everest BaseCamp Special Edition and Everest Sport in rear wheel drive, we’re offering more choice for our customers to take to the roads in vehicles that have been designed and engineered in Australia to make discovering our great country easy, safe and comfortable.”
