2022 Ford Bronco Everglades Confirmed
Think you have a hard time keeping track of all the trims and bodystyles on the Ford Bronco now?
Well, get ready for more. At least one more trim is on the way for 2022.
The 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades was confirmed by Ford PR spokesperson Mike Levine on Twitter earlier this week, though I didn’t see it til today. Levine also confirmed a summer 2022 launch date, but most other details, including pricing, most specs, and which engine/transmission it will be available with, are still secret.
It looks like two key details involve the availability of a factory-installed winch and a snorkel. Ford already sells a winch for the Bronco, but it’s aftermarket only. A snorkel would, of course, increase the fording depth, which is currently listed at 33.5 inches.
One thing about off-road-oriented vehicles is that they provide automakers a lot of ways to make money by offering true hard-core off-roaders lots of different accessories and configurations to choose from. Be on the lookout for more variations of Bronco going forward.
Like, oh, you know, the Raptor that was confirmed last month.
Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.
