Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

"2022 Ford Bronco Sport prices climbing as sales remain hot." - CNET

The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport comes mechanically unchanged with the same standard 4x4 drive layout. The trim lineup begins with the Base configuration at a price of $27,265 that goes up to $33,935 for the Badlands configuration. With its standard 1.5L I-3 under the hood, the 0-60 MPH mark takes less than 9 seconds. On top of that, the Terrain Management System maintains the grip and traction at the wheels under any driving condition. 

As far as destination charge is concerned, the 2022 Bronco Sport costs $1,495 that is $50 more than the previous expense. Adding to that, the average maintenance cost comes around $134 yearly. The cost to owning a Bronco Sport may exceed furthermore with the additional packages such as the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ at $895 that starts Big Bend onwards.  

 


Buying Advice

The Badlands trim among all of them is the most enticing one. The exclusive 250 hp 2.0L engine along with off-road suspension gives it an edge in terms of performance over others. The standard Bang & Olufsen Sound System and 3-interior accents further bolster its stature while the rest lack such privileges. Hence, the increment of almost $6,000 from the Base model seems justified with such characteristics. 

Features
8.0/10

Engine and Performance
7.0/10

"The ride is relatively quiet, handling is adequate for a small crossover, and the throttle and brakes respond nicely." - MotorTrend

The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport has two engine variants that are trim specific. The base one is a 1.5L Turbo I-3 that churns out 181 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque. It is available for the Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks trims. While the bigger 2.0L Turbo I-4 has been kept exclusive for the Badlands that produces 250 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. Both the engines are coupled to an 8-Speed Automatic transmission in a 4x4 drive layout.

 In addition to the power surge, the 2022 Bronco Sport receives 5 G.O.A.T Modes including the Sand, Slippery, Normal, Eco, and Sport. Moreover, the HOSS Suspension further maintains the wheel alignment and ground clearance depending on the terrains. And the Terrain Management System, in the end, manages the overall traction at the wheels for a superior grip and agile handling. 

The Bronco Sport, with its 1.5 L Turbo I-3, takes nearly 8.6 seconds for the 0-60 MPH acceleration. But with the 2.0L variant, the time reduces to 6.5 seconds. Also, its top speed has been limited to 125 MPH. To counter such mass transfer and power, the braking unit consists of a 4-wheel ABS unit along with Brake Assist and Post-Collision Braking for an overall safety efficiency.

Interior
4.0/10

"For once, the Sport moniker is put to good use, because the little Bronco has enough interior space." - Car And Driver

Step inside the interior of the 2022 Ford Bronco and it radiates practicality and sophistication. The single Ebony interior accent in the Base trim upgrades to 3 different combined tones of Area 51, Active Orange, and Brown in the Badlands configuration. Also, the leather-trimmed seats come inside the cabin from the Outer Banks onwards which improves the touch with mini-perforation in the Badlands.
