Ford Everest 2023: six months of cumulative sales in two months

The demand for the new generation Ford Everest is out of this world. Ford holds more than six months of orders before anyone has taken a test drive or sat down in a showroom.

The 2023 Ford Everest four-wheel drive is sold out through next year – on orders placed today – and Ford has already clocked nearly six months of sales before the first example rolls out of a car hauler.

Ford Australia holds more than 2,500 orders for the next-generation 2023 Ford Everest four-wheel drive, representing six months of sales based on pre-coronavirus pandemic data.

Meanwhile, Ford dealers reported that the top-of-the-line Platinum V6 turbodiesel exceeded their expectations, accounting for much of the initial demand.

The queue is getting so long that Ford Australia has taken the unprecedented step of apologizing to customers in advance amid chronic delays for a car no one has yet tested or sampled in a hall. exhibition in Australia.

“We are working with our team to do everything we can to get as many Rangers, Ranger Raptors and Everest as possible to customers as soon as possible,” said Ford Australia’s statement (which also applied to Ford Ranger delays, a. reported in a separate story).

“Global semiconductor and supply chain challenges related to COVID, combined with very high demand for certain variants, mean that some customers will unfortunately face prolonged waits.

“We want to be as transparent as possible and are currently planning extended waiting times for three variants in particular. The situation is changing regularly but at this stage:

  • Next-Gen Ranger Raptor: A vehicle ordered today could take about 9 months to arrive
  • Next-Gen Ranger Wildtrak 3.0L V6: A vehicle ordered today could take around 8 months to arrive
  • Next-Gen Everest Platinum: A vehicle ordered today could take around 7 months to arrive

However, Ford noted, “depending on dealership, location and specification, there is still stock available, so we encourage customers to speak to their nearest Ford Dealership.”
