The Ford Everest SUV has been on sale in Australia now for around three months, and off-road accessory companies are starting to announce tough add-ons to compete against the factory-backed ARB accessories.
Australian company TJM has teased its upcoming range of accessories for the Everest SUV in a series of images and videos uploaded to social media ahead of a launch in 2023.
It says its initial range will consist of TJM Outback and Venturer bull bars, full underbody protection, and a TJM Airtec snorkel. There will be “plenty more” accessories available at a later date.
You can now register your interest for these forthcoming accessories for the Ford Everest on the TJM website.
As previously reported, Ford has a partnership with ARB which sees it offer a range of factory-backed accessories for the new Ranger and Everest under its Ford Licensed Accessories Program.
These ARB-branded accessories are covered by the same five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty as the SUV itself, provided they’re purchased and fitted through Ford dealerships.
Ironman 4×4, another major off-road accessory brand, has yet to reveal its range of accessories for the new Ford Everest. It only revealed its Ranger accessories a few months ago.
Though it’s only been on sale for a few months, Ford announced new pricing and revised specifications for the Everest in October for what it calls MY23.5.
Pricing increased by up to $649, depending on the variant, and Ford introduced a new Sport 4×2 Bi-Turbo variant.
The Everest range now starts at $53,290 before on-road costs for the Ambiente 4×2 Bi-Turbo five-seater, and extends to $77,530 before on-road costs for the Platinum 4×4 V6.
The optional Touring Pack available on the Trend 4×4 and Sport 4×4 variants now gets black stand-off roof rails and is $350 more expensive at $2300. Prestige paint across the range is also $25 more expensive at $700.
The flagship Everest Platinum now features steel underbody protection as standard, along with a black painted roof.
Production of the MY23.5 Ford Everest will start in March 2023. Existing MY22 Everest variants will continue to be offered at the pre-update pricing until production concludes in February next year.
