There’s a reason why the 2022 Ford Bronco is such a popular model at dealerships like the Flagstaff Ford dealer. It features a classic design and delivers an incredible ride on the road and off. It’s versatile, so it can be configured to meet a variety of needs. Buyers can get the Bronco in two-door and four-door versions, with removable doors and a convertible top. All-wheel drive is standard and there are two powerplants on offer. Available packages and tire choices make the 2022 Bronco even more desirable.
According to the Ford dealer near Flagstaff, for 2022, the Bronco gets a new Everglades trim, which adds even more off-road chops. It features 17-inch wheels, 35-inch tires, a snorkel air intake, and a Warn winch with a 10,000-pound capacity. It gets an exclusive Desert Sand exterior paint color. The Wildtrak trim now has a Hoss 3.0 package, which adds tougher Fox adaptive dampers and upgraded chassis elements. There’s also a new Raptor variant, which we’re not covering in this review.
The 2022 Ford Bronco gets rave reviews from the automotive media. Motor Trend writes: “Our initial impression after driving the new two- and four-door Bronco is that it absolutely lives up to the hype. Driven on-road or off, viewed as a getaway/adventure vehicle, a family truckster, or as a piece of retro automotive art, the Bronco feels like a winner. Indeed, Jeep’s longtime off-road champ, the Wrangler, now has some serious 4x4 SUV competition, as does our 2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year, Land Rover’s epic Defender.”
