    The Ford Bronco’s comeback has given Jeep quite the challenge, and the competition is getting even stronger this year. Ford is taking the revamped Bronco’s success to the next level with several new 2022 Ford Bronco models and trims, upgraded performance options, and two new exterior colors. When you buy a brand-new Bronco, you’ll also get class-exclusive frameless doors. This means that door removal is easier than ever before.

    While the Bronco has been a great off-roader from the start, there was one common complaint. The off-roading Sasquatch package was only available with an automatic transmission. Now, thanks to the 2022 Bronco, off-roading enthusiasts get what they’ve asked for – manual transmission compatibility with the Sasquatch package. In addition to these new add-ons, the 2022 Bronco still includes the same perks as the 2021 model. This refined SUV is a great off-road enthusiast model while remaining a practical daily driver.

  • New Models

    The Raptor

    Ford’s Raptor trim has a long history, dating back to 2010 with the Ford Raptor truck. Since the Bronco’s revamp was first announced, fans have speculated that a Bronco Raptor trim may show up. Well, now it has, and it’s exactly what we hoped for.

    Inspired by Ultra4 Racing, a four-wheel drive racing group, the Raptor produces 400 horsepower thanks to its 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine. Its HOSS 4.0 suspension system allows the Bronco Raptor to perform like a Raptor truck. Plus, the model’s standard G.O.A.T. modes are revamped. While the Bronco includes up to 7 different terrain modes, the Raptor’s includes an upgraded Baja mode, aiding in desert travel. Ford also adds a Tow/Haul mode that increases the Raptor’s tow capacity from 3,000 pounds to 4,500 pounds.

    It’s not all about performance, either. The Bronco Raptor’s aesthetic appeal is also unique. This model is 9.8 inches wider than the regular Bronco, giving it a more rugged appeal. The Raptor also includes its own uniquely branded rock rails, front and rear quarter panels, fender flares, and much more.

    Everglades

    Ever thought about taking your SUV snorkeling? Probably not, but Ford is making this more possible than it ever was before. While you can’t exactly go deep-sea diving in your new Bronco, you can certainly tread through more water than ever before, thanks to the new Everglades trim. The best part is that the snorkel aids performance across the board. Whether you’re driving through snow, water, or even dust, your engine air intake is better prepared.

    In addition to the snorkel, the Everglades trim has a 36.4-inch water fording capacity, which is almost 3 inches more than the 2021 Bronco’s water fording rating. It also comes with a 10,000-pound-capable winch, unique graphics, and squared wheel arches. Furthermore, the Everglades trim has a standard-installed Sasquatch Package.

    Aesthetics and Function Combined

    The 2022 Ford Bronco’s exterior features are both aesthetically appealing and practical. This model is made for off-roading and outdoor adventures, but it’s obvious that Ford is factoring in style as well as functionality. The new Bronco retains its classic look while adding better functionality and more accessory options.

    As usual, buyers can pick between a 2-door and a 4-door model. There are also hardtop and soft top options. When compared with the competition, the 2022 Bronco’s doors are made much lighter so that they’re easier to remove and store. Plus, buyers can also choose official Ford Performance tubular doors as an add-on accessory. These are meant to be equipped during off-roading adventures and nice weather conditions. There are 12 factory wheel options as well.

    Speaking of accessories, the Bronco is very modular. There are official and aftermarket accessory add-on options for the new Bronco, including tents, kayak racks, traditional roof racks, and much more. Other exterior accessories include splash guards, specialized carriers, trailer hitches, and more.

    The Bronco’s exterior supports functionality along with style. When in motion, the Bronco can carry up to 110 pounds on its top and up to 450 pounds when stationary. The Ford Performance Heavy-Duty Modular Front Bumper can support winches, light bars, and more. This bumper offers a higher ground clearance than the stock bumper, making it better for off-roading.

  • Off-Roading

    Uniquely Designed for the Road Less Traveled

    When it comes to off-roading, performance is key. The 2022 Ford Bronco includes several performance features that make it stand out from the competition. Whether you enjoy minor off-roading or you’re a hardcore trailer, there’s a new Ford Bronco out there for you.

    No matter which Bronco trim you choose, you can depend on underbody protection to help prevent trail damage. This includes fuel and tank shields that protect what’s most important. That said, upgrade to the Black Diamond, Badlands, or Everglades trims to access standard bash plates, which further prevent underbody damage. For the fullest protection, the Raptor model includes even stronger, heavy-duty bash plates. This is due to its hardcore off-roading capability.

    HOSS 1 - 4

    The 2022 Bronco includes HOSS systems. This stands for “high-performance off-road stability suspension.” This system covers your shocks, springs, and rear axle, making everything work better off-pavement. The HOSS system comes in 4 different levels, each more “off-road capable” than the other. Each one is available on multiple trims with the exception of HOSS 3.0, which is exclusive to the Wildtrak trim, and HOSS 4.0, exclusive to the Raptor.

    Off-Road HERO Switches

    Certain Bronco trims include HERO switches, making it easy to quickly engage off-roading features. For example, when you need to use Trailer Turn Assist, save time by simply using the shortcut HERO button. Other HERO shortcut options include the front locking differential, rear differential, and sway bar connect.

    Rock Crawling Capability

    It’s not always about slinging mud. The 2022 Bronco is rock-crawl capable, mostly due to its front stabilizer bar disconnect. In order to efficiently rock climb, the Bronco's wheels must move independently from one another. The front stabilizer bar disconnect allows this, making rock climbing easy. Since each wheel moves independently, you can tackle larger, uneven terrains.

  • G.O.A.T. Modes

    An orange 2022 Ford Bronco is shown from the side off-roading in a desert.

    Need to go over ANY type of terrain? The new Bronco’s G.O.A.T. modes make this possible. There are eight different available G.O.A.T. modes to aid your off-roading adventures, though they will vary depending on your trim of choice. These include:
    Eco: This is the only non-off-roading G.O.A.T. mode option. When you’re on your daily commute to school or work, flip it into Eco Mode to save fuel.

    • Sport: Sport Mode is ideal when you need top-notch handling. You can use this mode both on and off the pavement. Just keep in mind that it’s designed for speedier, peppier drives.
    • Normal: This is simply your default mode. It is also good for your daily commute, but it’s not as fuel-efficient as Eco Mode.
    • Mud/Ruts: You guessed it – this mode is designed for dirt-road driving. When you’re traversing washed-out backroads and mud-heavy plains, this mode engages your four-wheel drive lock.
    • Slippery: When you get caught in heavy rain or ice, Slippery Mode makes it easier to shift when there’s minimal traction.
    • Sand: This mode is designed specifically for traversing deep territories made up of soft, dry sand.
    • Rock Crawl: Ready to go mountain climbing? Rock Crawl Mode allows drivers to tackle the roughest terrain, thanks to four-wheel drive lock, rear differential lock, and a handy front trail camera.
    • Baja: When you’re really in the desert, Sand Mode may not be enough to cut it. Baja mode is designed to tackle the loosest terrain, but is only meant to be used off-road.
    • Tow-Haul Mode: When you are bringing a trailer along for the ride, activate this mode to have more braking control to handle the increased weight.
    • Off-Road Mode: Like the name implies, this mode should only be engaged off-road and will help optimize traction and response on uneven trails.

    While SUVs are beginning to offer different terrain mode features, it’s safe to say that the Bronco’s Terrain Management System, otherwise known as G.O.A.T. Modes, is most impressive. Even base-level Broncos come with at least five modes. As you upgrade trims, you gain access to higher-level modes such as Rock Crawl and Baja.
