The Ford Endeavour facelift draws power from an all-new 2-litre diesel engine borrowed from the Ranger pickup truck.

Prices and finer details will be announced closer to launch, set for the fourth quarter of this year.

Ford has confirmed that it will offer the new 157kW/500Nm four-cylinder bi-turbo-diesel engine, also found in the Raptor, as an option in mid-range Trend variants, and standard on the flagship Titanium. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. The powertrain offers a combined fuel economy as low as 6.9L/100km, in the case of the Trend RWD version. Both are connected to six-speed automatic transmission.

Towing capacity has increased to a decent 3,100kg.

Buyers will be able to select the existing 3.2-litre turbo-diesel five-cylinder unit as well, which in its current form produces 143kW and 470Nm.

The Blue Oval says the Everest's revised suspension geometry improves the big SUV's ride and handling "for greater composure on- and off-road".

The Everest update brings inter-urban safety technology such as Autonomous Emergency Braking and pedestrian and vehicle detection all of which are standard on the Everest Trend and Titanium.

New standard features across the range include keyless entry and push-button start.

The Ford Everest update was led by Ford Australia's design and engineering teams and they implemented changes based on customer feedback "Everest is still a relatively new nameplate in Australia, but we've seen a positive response from customers as we've honed the line-up based on their passionate feedback", said Graeme Whickman, President and CEO, Ford Australia.

The MY19 Everest, as it's referred to, gets similar technological upgrades to the Ranger, but the SUV gets its own unique facelift comprising of a new chrome grille, HID headlights and redesigned front bumper, while the range-topping Titanium model gets new 20-inch, dual-tone split-spoke alloys.

Following yesterday's announcement of the 2019 Ford Ranger, details of the 2019 Ford Everest have been released.
