Ford Debuts Everglades Edition Bronco

Ford has debuted the new 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades special edition, a four-door model with factory-installed features such as a snorkel, integrated front bumper-mounted winch and all the off-road equipment in the Bronco Sasquatch Package.

“Bronco customers like to explore new places, but some want to go even further off the trail than others,” said Jolanta Coffey, Bronco chief engineer. “Everglades is specially equipped to enable these customers to tackle even more challenging terrains and trails – and with the front bumper-mounted winch, they can help others out of trouble while they’re at it.”

Bronco Everglades introduces a class-exclusive signature snorkel. Designed and engineered by Ford, the snorkel – which runs up the passenger-side A-pillar –uses two swappable plates to change the direction of the inlet based on trail and weather conditions, Ford said.

Front and rear axles, transfer case and transmission also offer raised vents for improved water fording. Combined, these design changes lead to water fording capability of 36.4 inches, Ford said.

A heavy-duty modular front bumper by Ford Performance with ZEON 10-S WARN winch – featuring 10,000-pound capability and a 100-foot synthetic line – comes standard, along with a protective safari bar, rock rails and the same steel bash plates found on Black Diamond and Badlands Bronco models, as well as a Carbonized Gray grille with gloss black Bronco lettering.

The Sasquatch Package features 17-inch Carbonized Gray-painted alloy wheels with 35-inch Goodyear mud-terrain tires. Additional exterior appointments include rock rails to protect the lower sills, plus a molded-in-color hardtop and roof rack with crossbars.

The Bronco design team also added squared front and rear wheel arches with matching Sasquatch-width fender flares and graphics with Everglades topography on the front quarter fenders.

Bronco Everglades features standard marine-grade vinyl seats and rubberized washout flooring. New Urban Green accents provide a subtle color touch on grab handles, air register vents and seat stitching.

In addition to mid-package content, Bronco Everglades features a class-exclusive 12-inch SYNC 4 system with Ford Power-Up over-the-air software updates. Its 2.3-liter EcoBoost delivers 300 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque is paired to a SelectShift 10-speed automatic transmission with advanced 4×4 system and a maximum 67.8:1 crawl ratio.

The new 2022 Bronco Everglades is available in five exterior colors, including Everglades-exclusive low-volume Desert Sand, plus Eruption Green, Area 51, Shadow Black and Cactus Gray.

Bronco Everglades will join the Bronco lineup this summer.
