The 3.0-liter V6 engine will be offered in Ranger and Everest. It is part of the same ‘Lion family’ as the 2.7-litre turbodiesel that many Australians. It was developed with PSA, JLR, and will be used in a variety models including F-150. In the 2023 Everest, it will be above the 2.0-liter bi-turbo “Panther” as the premium engine option. The bi-turbo will replace the 3.2-litre five-cylinder ‘Puma’ turbo-diesel engine as the standard Everest engine. With the arrival of new models, the five-pot was finally removed from Everest and Ranger. The single-turbo version 2.0-liter Panther will be used in low-spec Everests in other markets. This is shown here in the Ford Transit, Ford Ranger and the forthcoming Ford Transit. Ford has not yet confirmed Australian details, but it’s unlikely that you’ll find an Everest with this single-turbo 2.0L. The 2993cc V6 has been confirmed as the flagship Everest powertrain starting in Australia. It is an intercooled common rail turbo diesel with a 60-degree configuration, iron graphene block, and double-overhead cameras.

It is likely to come from Dagenham in the UK. In the F-Series in America, the powerplant includes variable geometry turbocharging and a two-stage oil pump. The forged crankshaft has also been used in the Everest and 2023 Ranger.  Power and torque are still unknown, but the 3.0-liter Power Stroke engine made 240hp (186kW), and 440lb-ft (597Nm), starting at 1750rpm. These numbers are far superior to Everest’s current 157kW/500Nm biturbo and the 3.2L’s total of 143kW/470Nm. The V6 will follow Bronco and Ranger’s lead by using a new 10-speed auto transmission codenamed 10R60 in place of the 10R80 currently on the model. Both of these were developed with General Motors.

Fuel Economy

The new V6, Ford claims, is heavier than the bi-turbo engine. This could affect fuel economy slightly. As Everest faces a slight weight increase over its 2283-2477 kilogram current weight range, Everest will be able to use the V6. For example, Platinum’s larger 21-inch wheels will add weight. Ian Foston, platform lead, stated that the V6 is heavier and has a larger engine. The overall weight of the V6 is not much different from today’s, but it has more feature content. The question is, how can we achieve that without making it heavier?

“We have made a lot more efficiencies, the frame has been significantly lighter than before – the hydroformed front end structure helps as well, and we’ve removed a lot of sheet metal at its front – so what have we tried to do? Optimize the weight as much as possible.” The 2023 Ford Everest will be available in Australia in 2022’s second half. Pricing and other details have yet to be released.
