2024 Ford Ranger, Everest Have Features Removed In Australia

After debuting in Australia to high demand and short supply, the redesigned Ford Ranger and Everest have both lost some features as a result of supply chain issues, ones that weren’t critical to the vehicles’ operation, at least. In spite of this, both the Ranger and Everest have also been treated to price increases in that country as well, which has essentially proven to be a universal trend in the automotive market over the past few years. Now, both the 2024 Ford Ranger and Everest are losing some features yet again in Australia, according to CarExpert.

“We make changes to the rollout of certain features based on a range of factors, from external market evaluation to customer demand,” a Ford spokesperson explained. “We’ve collated a list of all additions and removals of content from Everest and Ranger for 2024. Removals include hands-free lift-gate, auto high beam (it remains standard on Platinum), Ford MyKey, as well as minor changes to badging” in terms of the Everest. The Trend, Sport and Platinum trims will retain the power tailgate, however, albeit with no kick sensor.

Meanwhile, the 2024 Ford Ranger is also set to lose some features as well. “Removals include auto high beam (it remains standard on Platinum and Raptor, and optional on Wildtrak), Ford MyKey, changes to availability of Tough Bed Spray-In Bedliner, discontinuation of optional Ranger Raptor Beadlock Capable Wheels and Decal Pack, as well as minor changes to badging,” the spokesperson added.

Though it has removed these features from the 2024 Ford Ranger and Everest, there are also some additions to note. Zone lighting and roof rails are now standard on the Everest Trend and Sport, while Pro Trailer Backup Assist is now optional on the Everest Trend, Sport and Platinum. As for the Ranger, automatic start-stop is now standard on all models except the single-turbo XL, while the XL trim has gained the heavy-duty suspension as standard.

    I want the Everest in the US so bad. It’s the only SUV they make I like the looks of.

    Any updates on the Ford Eco Sport recall? Mine broke down in Dec. 2023. I’m still waiting. Making payments, paying insurance. My belt broke and destroyed my engine. I’m a senior and having trouble not having my car or any luck getting help! I need a rental or a new car asap. Four months has been too long. I’m still responsible for a car that most likely will never run again. Was told there won’t be a fix for the belt for awhile and engines for 6 to 9 months. Please help me.
