Ford has a loud and clear message for other brands with off-road vehicles: The Bronco is back, and it’s better than ever. The 2022 Ford Bronco is an absolute beast of impressive proportions, and it’s available now at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois.
What makes the new Bronco a formidable beast that other brands’ off-roaders wish they could be? It packs a punch of style, power, capability, and innovation — and it’s even better for 2022 thanks to new features and a pair of incredible new models.
New to the 2022 Ford Bronco lineup is a pair of first-ever variants that dominate in every sense. The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor and Bronco Everglades are exceptional variations on the award-winning Bronco formula, offering more power and capability.
There’s perhaps never been a Bronco as confident as the all-new Raptor. There’s certainly never been a Bronco as powerful — with projected output of 400+ horsepower from the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6, it’s the most powerful street-legal Bronco ever made. But it’s just as amazing off-road thanks to a HOSS 4.0 Suspension with FOX™ Live Valve 3.1 Internal Bypass Semi-Active Dampers and 37-inch tires. These features allow the Bronco Raptor to wade in up to 37 inches of water and give it more than 13 inches of ground clearance.
Not to be outdone, the first-ever Ford Bronco Everglades is an SUV fit for the swamps. It features a class-exclusive, Ford-designed and -developed snorkel affixed to the front passenger A-pillar that makes for improved engine performance in deep conditions. It’s also quite a fashion statement, playing off unique features like a Carbonized Gray grille with gloss black Bronco lettering and 17-inch Carbonized Gray alloy wheels wrapped in beefy 35-inch Goodyear M/T tires.
The Ford Bronco was named the 2022 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™, but Ford isn’t content to rest on even fresh laurels. For 2022, the Bronco adds several cool new features that fans and customers asked for, making it even better up and down the lineup.
The Bronco now offers four versions of the High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension System. Each is tuned and honed for impressive off-road performance, starting with the HOSS 1.0 on the Base, Outer Banks, Big Bend, and Black Diamond. The HOSS 2.0 — standard for the Badlands, Wildtrak, and models with the Sasquatch™ Package — swaps in HOSS-tuned Bilstein™ Position Sensitive Dampers and an independent front suspension for even more balanced control.
Just under the HOSS 4.0 Suspension offered on the Bronco Raptor is the all-new HOSS 3.0 Suspension, which is available exclusively for the Bronco Wildtrak. This upgrade adds in FOX™ Live Valve 3.1 Internal Bypass Semi-Active Dampers as well as front steel bash plates and a sturdy, powder-coated steel bumper.
And Ford also makes camping or unloading groceries easier with a new slide-out tailgate option for Bronco four-door models (excluding the Badlands and Raptor). Simply open the rear door and pull out the tailgate and you’ve got a functional work surface or a step to access cargo on the roof.
Whatever challenge Mother Nature can throw your way, the 2022 Ford Bronco can take its best shot. The new Bronco is designed for exceptional off-road performance, featuring standard 4×4 with Part-Time Selectable Engagement, 30-inch tires, a base 8.3 inches of ground clearance, and a Terrain Management System™ with up to seven G.O.A.T. Modes™.
If you want a truly legendary experience, you can opt for the Sasquatch Package on all models excluding the Raptor. This mythic pack upgrades your Bronco with the HOSS 2.0 System, massive 35-inch tires, and electronic-locking front and rear axles. And if you want to pair this impressive package with the standard class-exclusive seven-speed manual transmission, Ford now offers the Sasquatch Package for models with the stick shift.
Whichever version of the Bronco you choose, you’ll get a handsome SUV with tons of standout appeal. Inspired by the classic look of the original, the 2022 Ford Bronco boasts hallmark design features like flat body-sides, a squared-off profile, and a single-piece grille with round headlamps and bold Bronco lettering. And whenever you want to feel closer to the action, the Bronco two-door and four-door both offer removable class-exclusive frameless doors as well as removable roof options.
There’s a lot to be made of how the Bronco delivers when it’s put to the test. But one of the true aces up its sleeve is its impressive interior. Inside the Bronco, you’ll find a comfortable and accommodating space that’s adventure-tested. Luxurious yet easy-to-clean seats are primed for getting down and dirty in the wild, including options like the Black Diamond’s marine-grade vinyl seats in Dark Space Gray and Black Onyx.
You won’t have to leave anyone or anything behind on your next getaway thanks to the Bronco. With seating for up to four people and 99 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Bronco two-door, you’re primed for a memorable journey with your growing family. The four-door offers seating for up to five and more passenger volume overall as well as the ability to sleep two in the cargo area with the seats folded flat.
The 2022 Ford Bronco is also an intelligent SUV with tons of high-end technology. In addition to off-road-friendly features like Trail 1-Pedal Drive and class-exclusive Trail Turn Assist, the Bronco offers SYNC® 4 with an available 12-inch touch screen as well as a suite of driver-assist features with Ford Co-Pilot360™. Even with its rugged looks and performance, this is one modern, smart SUV.
