    A unique Terrain Management System and Selectable Drive Modes featured into the Everest optimise the vehicle performance to suit a range of different conditions, to its sophisticated surround view cameras and rear differential lock, off-road adventures are even more achievable and with the twist of a dial, the Everest can choose from up to six drive modes designed to improve on- and off-road comfort and capability. 

    Depending on the market and variant, these drive modes are Normal for everyday use and can be used on- and off-road in general driving conditions.

    Eco to maximises fuel economy by reducing throttle sensitivity and upshifting gears earlier and adds a more economical cruise control tune and Tow/Haul, which is designed to be used when towing or carrying a heavy load and optimises gear shift timing to maintain power delivery and engine braking in hilly terrain, it also increases steering weight for improved control.

    Slippery mode is to be use on firm but slippery surfaces, like wet grass where the engine and transmission are optimised to reduce wheel spin with a faster acting traction control setting for enhanced grip and control. Mud/Ruts mode is for off-road in soft, muddy, rutted or waterlogged tracks and this mode is designed to help maintain vehicle momentum but still allow for some wheel slip to assist in clearing mud from the tyre tread. While, the Sand mode, which is another off-road only mode designed to be used on both sand and deep snow and optimises power delivery, gear shifts and stability control to maintain vehicle momentum.

    New and enhanced driver assist technologies and safety features are loaded in the next gen Everest, including the Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go and Lane Centering, enabling the Everest to detect lane markings and help keep the vehicle centred in the lane.
