- the 2022 ford bronco everglades will arrive this summer, and it builds on the already capable sasquatch off-road package.
- it includes a snorkel air intake, warn winch, and 17-inch wheels on 35-inch mud-terrain tires.
- pricing starts at $54,495, and it's only available as a four-door hardtop model with the 300-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
two new ford bronco models will arrive this summer: the recently revealed high-performance bronco raptor, and this new everglades model that adds a few more bits of off-road hardware to the already capable sasquatch package. both come only as a four-door model with a hardtop and are more hardcore options for off-roaders—or mall crawlers.
that aforementioned sasquatch package already includes things like 35-inch tires, a lifted suspension, front and rear locking differentials, and a shorter final drive ratio. everglades models add mud-terrain tires mounted on 17-inch wheels and a factory snorkel mounted to the a-pillar. the front and rear axles, transfer case, and transmission cooling vents are also raised to allow for a maximum of 36.4 inches of water fording depth, 2.9 inches higher than the regular bronco sasquatch.
ford also fits the optional heavy-duty modular front bumper and safari bar on the everglades with an integrated warn zeon 10-s winch. ford says it tested the winch at its chassis test facility and claims that it can pull up to 10,000 pounds with its 100-foot line. the everglades also comes with rock rails and steel skid plates protecting the underbody.
a new desert sand exterior color is exclusive to the everglades, and the other color choices are some of the bronco's best: eruption green, cactus gray, area 51, and shadow black. it gets a carbonized grey grille with gloss-black bronco lettering and an everglades topography graphic stamped on the front fender. everglades come standard with the 12.0-inch touchscreen and vinyl seats, washout floor mats, and green stitching.
you'll have to settle for the bronco's turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that produces 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque and pairs with a 10-speed automatic. that's the only powertrain choice for the everglades, even though other bronco models offer a seven-speed manual with the four-cylinder and a 330-hp twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter v-6 as an option. ford says there are no plans to add any other powertrain options to the everglades.
the 2022 bronco everglades will arrive this summer starting at $54,495, which is $3525 more than a four-door wildtrak, and reservations will open in march. the new model is exclusive to current bronco reservation holders, and those who haven't received a build date can switch their order to an everglades—or to the 400-plus-hp raptor, which will arrive in the same timeframe.
