Do you like driving in swampy areas, but not sure if your SUV can handle it? Maybe you need the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades Special Edition, which is designed to do just that.
Building on its already high-caliber off-road reputation, the new Bronco received special-edition treatment in the United States, with a package called Everglades. No doubt inspired by the Florida Everglades wetlands, the Bronco is ready to get muddy.
Ford gives the new Bronco an exclusive engine snorkel that mounts the A-pillar, with a reversible intake, while the front and rear axles and the transmission and transfer case all feature raised vents for improved through-passability. some water.
You probably also noticed the chunky 35-inch Goodyear mud-terrain tires that are mounted on 17-inch charred gray alloy wheels. These are part of the Sasquatch package, along with protective sill rails, a roof rack and a color-coded hardtop.
The Bronco Everglades offers an impressive 925 mm (36.4 in) fording capability. A set of ZEON 10-S WARN winches are also included, along with a heavy-duty Ford Performance modular front bumper bar.
Inside, passengers don’t have to worry about soiling the upholstery as Ford installed marine-grade vinyl seats and rubber flooring for easy washing. Urban Green’s highlights help signify its focus on the outdoors.
Under the bonnet is Ford’s 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine, producing 224kW (300hp) and 440Nm. This is connected to a 10-speed SelectShift automatic with a selectable four-wheel-drive system, including low range with a 67.8:1 gear ratio.
The Ford Bronco Everglades will hit showrooms midway through this year, with orders opening in March for existing Bronco reservation holders. Pricing will start from US$53,000.
