    Ford Introduces 2022 Bronco Everglades Special Edition

    How about a snorkel to go with that Bronco? That's one of the features being introduced on the new 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades Special Edition, exclusively available for existing reservation holders. Designed for the adventure- and off-the grid minded,  Ford says the Everglades is outfitted to take on "extreme adventures."  The four-door model is equipped with a factory-installed snorkel, an integrated front bumper 10,000-pound ZEON 10-S WARN winch and the off-road Sasquatch package. Special exterior graphics denote its status. An available low-volume Desert Sand exterior color is also exclusive to the model.

    “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.”

    Off-Road Hardware


    The Bronco Everglades introduces a class-exclusive signature snorkel that's designed and engineered by Ford.  The snorkel – which runs up the passenger-side A-pillar –  optimizes vehicle performance in dust, snow and water by raising the engine air intake above trail conditions. Two easy-to-swap plates to change the direction of the inlet based on trail and weather conditions.

    “Bronco enthusiasts demand style as well as performance, so we challenged ourselves to create a snorkel with high-end function and a look that really suits the vehicle,” said Ryan Olsson, design manager. “What really sets the Everglades snorkel apart is the head and reversible intake. It completely changes the way a snorkel can look and function.”

    Raised vents on the front and rear axles, transfer case and transmission improve water fording. Combined, Ford says these design changes lead to water fording capability of 36.4 inches.

    If you need more traction beyond what the tires and engine can provide, Ford has you covered there, too. The Everglades is equipped with a Ford Performance heavy-duty modular front bumper with ZEON 10-S WARN winch – it has a 10,000-pound capability and a 100-foot synthetic line. Other standard equipment includes a protective safari bar, rock rails and the same steel bash plates found on Black Diamond and Badland Bronco models.  A Carbonized Gray grille with gloss black Bronco lettering enhances its functional appearance.

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

    Design


    Ford says the Bronco design team took advantage of the SUV’s patented off-road modular design in creating the Everglades edition, further underscoring how this user-friendly platform can be stripped to its base structure and reconfigured for another new adventure with a different body setup. The vehicle features unique squared front and rear wheel arches with matching Sasquatch-width fender flares.

    Unique graphics with Everglades topography on the front quarter fenders pay homage to the tropical wetlands that inspire the vehicle’s name.

    Cleaning up after a weekend on the trails is no problem thanks to 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 Ford's 12-inch SYNC4 system with Ford Power-Up over-the-air software updates – a unique combination Ford says is based on customer feedback. Its 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine delivers 300-horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque and is paired to a SelectShift 10-speed automatic transmission with advanced 4x4 system and a maximum 67.8:1 crawl ratio.
