The Everett Range is a rugged, mainly ice-covered mountain range about 100 km in length in the northwest of the East Antarctic Victoria Land . In the Concord Mountains , it looms between the Greenwell Glacier and the Ebbe Glacier .

The mountain range was mapped by surveying work by the United States Geological Survey and using aerial photographs by the United States Navy between 1960 and 1963. The Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names named it in 1964 after William H. Everett of the US Navy, commander of the VX Antarctic Air Force -6 between 1962 and 1963.
