You can get the Bronco with one of two turbocharged engines including a V6. Four-wheel drive comes standard, and a seven-speed manual transmission is also available. For off-road purists, there is the Sasquatch package. To our delight, Ford also offers a long list of accessories to customize your Bronco to your desire. Above all, the interior is a fresh breath of air as it is purposefully built and appears quite unique.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

"The Bronco has composed handling, accurate steering, and a reasonably compliant ride, which may surprise some folks, given this Ford’s off-road chops" - Cars.USNews.com

The 2022 Ford Bronco sees no change under the hood and is available with a base turbocharged 2.3L Inline-4 engine that punches out 275-hp and 315 lb-ft of peak torque on regular fuel, or 300 hp and 325 lb-ft on premium fuel. One can avail of an upgraded 2.7L twin-turbo V6 that's good for 315 hp and 405 lb-ft on regular fuel, or 330 hp and 415 lb-ft on premium fuel. However, the fans won’t be able to retrieve the thrill of the brawny V8 that used to power the original Bronco. Even the highly anticipated Bronco Raptor comes with a 3.0L twin-turbo V6, not the V8 that was initially expected. The base turbo-four comes with a seven-speed manual transmission, while a 10-speed automatic is available. The V6 is only available with the automatic gearbox. 

The standard layout of the 2022 Ford Bronco features a 4WD drivetrain. Advanced technology is what promotes the Ford Bronco as a modernized and revived legend. The same story goes for the electronic aids and various off-road modes, which Ford markets as G.O.A.T. modes (Go Over Any Terrain) that offer customized ride modes for slippery terrain, mud, sand, rock crawling, and high-speed Baja-style running. 

As far as ride and handling are concerned, Bronco offers composed and accurate steering with an unexpectedly compliant ride. Still, by comparison, some of the rivals are more agile and have better ride quality. Also, one can use their Bronco to tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Ford equips the new Bronco with special equipment intended to improve off-road capability. The SUV comes with all-terrain tires on the Badlands and Wildtrak models, along with two types of transfer cases, as well as front and rear locking differentials. There is a long list of drive modes including Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, Sand, Baja, Mud, and Rock Crawl.

Then there’s the “Trail Assist” feature that will assist the Bronco on tight corners by holding the brake onto the inside rear wheel. In addition to obvious Hill descent control, the 2022 Ford Bronco will also feature a one-pedal driving setting to appreciate eased driving on tricky patches, it will activate the brakes for the driver, as they shift onto the accelerator to hold a grip on such terrains. Except for the Jeep Wrangler 392, the rivals don’t offer any V8 engine options, even in their higher trims.

Fuel Economy
8.5/10

Almost every class rival is more fuel-efficient than this Ford. The Bronco in its base spec gets EPA estimated 20 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway regardless of transmission. With the V6, fuel economy ratings drop to 19 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. Lastly, the Raptor with its 3.0L twin-turbo V6 gets 15 MPG in the city and 16 MPG on the highway.

By comparison, every class rival including the Jeep Wrangler is more efficient than the Ford Bronco. What's even more disappointing is the 16.9-gallon gas tank on the 2-door models that deliver only 338 miles of combined driving range which is the lowest in the competition. However, a 20.8-gallon fuel tank is standard on every 4-door Bronco model and delivers about 416 miles of combined driving range.

Interior
7.5/10

"The Bronco does a great job of blending modern styling with the look of Ford Broncos of yesteryear." - Cars.USNews.com

The 2022 Ford Bronco's interior is simple yet functional with ample cargo space on offer. The majority of the seating surfaces utilize waterproof materials so that while you're off-road muddy water and dust won’t hold you back. The thoughtful design further continues on the dashboard with a rack on top to mount cameras and smartphones to record every terrain and trail that you explore. Further down the dashboard are four rubberized buttons for things like traction control and differential lock.

There are rubberized and washable floor mats too to keep off all the dirt. The wide range of upholstery material options varies from uber-functional vinyl grade to opulent leather for a plusher experience. When it comes to infotainment, the 2022 Ford Bronco won’t feel old. The infotainment screen size ranges from 8-inch for the base trim up to 12-inch on higher trims. Further, the infotainment system runs on Ford’s SYNC 4 user interface, which can be upgraded with over-the-air updates.

Other features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot and optional Navigation. The audiophiles can also opt for the fabulous Bang & Olufsen premium speaker set up to entertain the passengers.

The Ford Bronco's interior offers great practicality and functionality along with a striking and unique design. However, the Land Rover Defender offers a much more spacious interior, both in its 2-door and 4-door forms. Being significantly more expensive, the Defender also features more upscale materials and build quality than the Bronco. As compared to the Jeep Wrangler, the Bronco is on par in terms of build quality and appearance. Though the Jeep Wrangler's interior is slightly less spacious than the Bronco, especially in its 2-door configuration.

Some of the creature comforts offered in the 2022 Ford Bronco are:

  • Waterproof marine-grade interior upholstery
  • Integrated grab handles in the dashboard
  • First-Gen inspired instrument cluster
  • Rubberized flooring with drainplugs
  • Standard 8-inch LCD touchscreen unit
  • Optional 12-inch infotainment display
  • Ford SYNC 4 user interface
  • FordPass Performance application integration
  • Over Topographical trail maps from NeoTreks AccuTerra Maps
Exterior

"The new Bronco has only been out for a year and is already winning awards. Like the iF Design Gold Award. " - Kbb.com

The retro-styling and resurrected aesthetic appeal will drive the attention of the majority of the customers and even eyes on the roads. The revived Ford Bronco will feature the inspired round headlamps from the legend that ruled 22 years before. This time, there are new exterior paint colors to choose from, Eruption Green and Hot Pepper Red. The 2-door comes with a modular hard top with no option for a convertible. For that, you can choose a soft-top or modular hardtop on the 4-door. 

Appearance-wise, the “Bronco” has a titled grille, huge wheel arches, and big wheels to travel on the worst roads with dusty patches or water-logged unpaved patches. Just like the previous Bronco, the 2022 Bronco will also have removable body panels, including the roof and doors.

The looks are stunning and there’s no chance of ignoring this icon upon having a slight glimpse. The figures suggest that the 2022 Ford Bronco is the longest and widest of the lot, yet the lightest off-roading SUV to grab. Though the Defender offers the best ground clearance, which would give it an edge in off-road skill show-off.

Some highlighted exterior features included in the Ford Bronco are:

  • LED lighting all round
  • Removable roof 
  • Integrated roll cage in the curtain bars
  • Tailgate mounted full-sized spare wheel
  • 11 eye-popping exterior shades
  • 3 body styles- Modular 2-door, and 4-door and 4-door crossover
Safety
7.0/10

The new Ford Bronco has neither been crash-tested by NHTSA nor IIHS. However, safety features are reasonable in the base Bronco, including forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, hill-start assist, and automatic high beams.

The Ford Bronco equips a plethora of safety features, some of which are:

  • Personal Safety System
  • Airbags
  • AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) -
  • Lower Anchors and Tether Anchors for Children
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Inflatable Safety Belts
  • forward-collision warning with automated emergency braking
  • Lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert.

2022 Ford Bronco vs. 2022 Jeep Wrangler

The 2022 Ford Bronco is already a step ahead of its natural rival Jeep Wrangler by being a revived legendary nameplate that will surely attract more crowds. In terms of performance, the Bronco flaunts better figures. To this, the Jeep Wrangler can respond to a wider powertrain option which includes hybrid and electric variant options coming shortly. The Jeep Wrangler has been around for a while now, while the Ford Bronco will re-enter the market after 22 years, you see where are we going with this?

Jeep Wrangler

2022 Ford Bronco vs. 2022 Land Rover Defender

The 2022 Ford Bronco and the 2022 Land Rover Defender are more closely matched off-roading SUV duets. But the Bronco offers value-based features. The big margin in the price is obvious with the luxury that the Land Rover Defender offers. With the smallest engine displacement, the Defender might seem to be underpowered on paper, but real-world scenarios have depicted how this British off-roading SUV tackles the hardest challenges. Though it is the heftiest of the lot, the unmatched ground clearance and advanced technology bits give it an edge over all rivals, including the 2022 Ford Bronco.

Land Rover Defender
Final Verdict

The 2022 Ford Bronco is a no-brainer pick in its segment for its ultimate off-road capability. Undoubtedly it should be on the list of off-road enthusiasts but for buyers looking for a compact SUV, this Ford can be a pricey option. It comes with powerful powertrain options. The Bronco has a revived vibe and retro-styled design cues, yet the modern touch inside will appeal to buyers of all ages. The Bronco’s interior is simple yet functional. You will get ample passenger and cargo space in both two- and four-door body styles. Some of the competitors offer a more comfortable ride, and better fuel economy ratings, that's the only real drawback this Ford has.
