After about three months on the Australian market, rivals to the factory-backed ARB accessories for the Ford Everest SUV are finally unveiling their own rugged upgrades.
TJM, an Australian company, has uploaded a series of photos and videos to social media to promote the launch of its line of Everest SUV accessories in 2023.
TJM claims its first lineup will feature bull bars for the Outback and Venturer, full underbody protection, and a snorkel for the TJM Airtec. When the time comes, you can expect to see “plenty more” add-ons.
In order to show your interest in these upcoming Ford Everest accessories, you can do so right now on the TJM website.
Ford, through its Ford Licensed Accessories Program, offers a variety of ARB-backed accessories for the new Ranger and Everest.
With the purchase and installation of these ARB-branded accessories through authorized Ford dealers, you can take advantage of the same five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty that comes with the SUV itself.
The Ironman 4×4 accessory line, another major off-road accessory manufacturer, has not yet been introduced for the new Ford Everest. Until recently, the company kept quiet about the Ranger add-ons it had been developing.
Ford announced new pricing and revised specifications for the Everest in October for what it calls MY23.5, despite the fact that it has only been on sale for a few months.
Ford introduced a new Sport 42 Bi-Turbo variant with a price increase of up to $649.
The base model, the Ambiente 42 Bi-Turbo five-seater, is now priced at $53,290 (before on-road costs), with the range topping out at the Platinum 44 V6 (also before on-road costs) at $77,530.
Black stand-off roof rails are now included in the $2300 optional Touring Pack for the Trend 4×4 and Sport 4×4 models. For the entire spectrum, the prestige paint is $25 more expensive at $700.
Roof and underbody steel protection are now the norm for the top-tier Everest Platinum.
Ford Everest MY23.5 production will begin in March 2023. Until February of next year, when production ends, buyers can still purchase MY22 Everest models at the pre-update prices.
