Just like its predecessor, the new Ford Bronco remains an excellent off-road compact SUV that offers a compliant ride. Although, the retro-styling and inherited off-roading capabilities are coupled with modern touches of technology and comfort that will surely hurt its rivals. The SUV comes with impressive features like Bronco Underbody Protection, Front and Rear Electronic Locking Differential, G.O.A.T Modes, Ford Co-Pilot360, and SYCN 4 Technology for all-round performance. Prices of the 2022 model see a bump of $800 for the 2-door base model over the current 2021 Ford Bronco which starts at $28,500. The 2022 Bronco 4-door starts at a base price of $33,450.

2022 Ford Bronco Engine and Performance

9.0/10

"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 410 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 icon 22 years back. The base turbo-four comes with a seven-speed manual transmission, while a 10-speed automatic is available. The V6 is only available with an automatic gearbox. 

The standard layout of the 2022 Ford Bronco will feature the 4WD drivetrain. Advanced technology is what will promote the Ford Bronco as a modernized and revived legend. Something similar will be felt with 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.

2022 Ford Bronco Interior

6.0/10

"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 offers ample cargo space and the interior is simple yet functional. The majority of the seating surfaces will utilize waterproof materials so that off-roads and the consequence of muddy water and dust won’t keep you away from such terrains for the second run onwards. The thoughtful designers have designed a rack on the dashboard top where cameras and smartphones can be mounted to record every terrain that you control and trails that the 2022 Ford Bronco will conquer. Further down the dashboard are four key rubberized buttons for things like traction control and a differential lock.

There are rubberized and washable floor mats too to keep off all the dirt. The wide range of upholstery material options can range from uber-functional vinyl grade to opulent leather to decorate the interiors. When it comes to infotainment, the 2022 Ford Bronco won’t feel old. The screen size of the infotainment will range from 8-inch in base to 12-inch on getting an upgrade. The screens will be featuring Ford’s SYNC 4, which can be upgraded with over-the-air updates.

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.

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

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.

2022 Ford Bronco 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.

An All-terrain explorer Now I can drive on all terrains and trails with my new Ford Bronco; its performance and unique offroading abilities intrigue me each time I drive it. It handles sharply on highways and, I can maneuver on traffic roads without much complexity since its 10-speed auto transmission shifts on time. The only negative is the excess noise in the driving cabin and I can't get rid of it. It was a simple buying process and the salesmen were very friendly throughout the process.
