In the realm of off-roading SUVs, there’s hardly any as iconic as the Ford Bronco.
The Bronco was first introduced in 1966 with off-roading in mind. The Bronco underwent changes in the 80s to improve fuel economy and become a more comfortable daily driver. In 1996, Ford decided to discontinue the Bronco due to declining sales.
After a 25-year hiatus, Ford decided to revive the Bronco in 2021. The new Bronco was modeled after the first generation of SUVs. Returning to its off-roading roots, the Ford Bronco is back and ready for adventure.
The 2022 Bronco comes in either the full-size 4-wheel drive version and the smaller all-wheel drive Bronco Sport, which is a compact crossover. The full-size Bronco comes with eight different trim levels (Base, Big Bend, Black Diamon, Outer Banks, Badlands, Wildtrak, Everglades and Raptor). The Bronco Sport is available with four trims (Base, Big Bend, Outer Banks and Badlands).
The 4-wheel drive Bronco is available in either a two-door or four-door option. The Bronco comes with a standard 2.3L EcoBoost engine (300 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft of torque) and a 2.7L EcoBoost (330 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft of torque) available in certain packages. The Bronco Raptor comes with a powerful 3.0L EcoBoost engine (418 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque) and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Bronco Sport can come with a 1.5L EcoBoost (181 horsepower and 190 lb.-ft of torque) or a 2.0L EcoBoost (250 horsepower and 277 lb.-ft of torque). The Bronco Sport is more fuel efficient than full-size option, getting up to 25 mpg city and 28 mpg highway with the three-cylinder 1.5L engine.
The Bronco Raptor takes all the rugged off-road performance of the Raptor nameplate and brings it to the iconic Bronco. With the Raptor name, you know this SUV is packed with upgrades. With hulking 37-inch all-terrain tires, an upgraded Fox suspension and a wider base, the Bronco Raptor is all about performance. The Bronco Raptor also has 1.6-inches of extra ground clearance compared to a Bronco with the Sasquatch off-road package.
If you want to get the most off-roading performance out of the Bronco without paying the extra bucks for the Bronco Raptor, the Sasquatch package is the way to go. The Sasquatch package includes 35-inch tires and electronic-locking front and rear axles along with fender flares. This off-roading package is available on all trim models except for the Raptor.
The G.O.A.T. (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain) Modes terrain management system in the new Ford Bronco allows the vehicle to eat up any terrain you put in front of it. With available modes including Mud, Slippery, Sand/Snow, Rock Crawl and Baja, the Bronco can optimize steering, handling and powertrain for any terrain.
The response to the 2022 Ford Bronco has been extremely positive, winning a handful of awards including the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year award.
These iconic off-road machines are in high demand and getting your hands on one in no easy feat. At Northwest Motorsport we are excited to have these powerful off-road machines in stock, along with the smaller Bronco Sport.
