5 reasons to buy the 2022 Ford Bronco

1. Off-road-ready

2022 Ford Bronco Review: Bronco tires | CarMax

The top reason most people shop for the new Bronco, which debuted with the 2021 model year, is its off-road capabilities. The 2022 Ford Bronco comes standard with four-wheel drive and offers an upgraded system for the most adventurous. High ground clearance, locking differentials, and independent axles, all standard, help you cruise through woods, mountains, or mud without issue. Available extras, like low-speed cruise control, enhance the experience.

2. G.O.A.T. driving modes

The 2022 Ford Bronco comes standard with a G.O.A.T. driving mode system. The acronym may be better known for meaning "greatest of all time," but in this case, it really stands for "goes over all terrain." The system has five modes: normal, eco, sport, sand, and slippery. Whether you're looking for more responsive handling, less time at the gas station, or help navigating the dunes, the right driving mode is available at the touch of a button.

3. Feel the breeze

Even when you're not on an adventure, the 2022 Bronco will make you feel like you are. The Bronco comes in two- and four-door models. The two-door models come standard with a removable hard-top, while four-door models come standard with a soft top that can be folded down or taken off entirely. A hardtop is available on four-door models, and all 2022 Broncos come with removable doors. The four-door models even come with door storage space in the cargo hold.

4. Wild engine options

The 2022 Bronco is part of Ford's "Built Wild," line, and in 2022 the available engine options became even more exciting. For 2022, Ford introduced the high-performance Bronco Raptor model. It comes standard with a 400-hp twin-turbo 3L EcoBoost® engine. While the Bronco Raptor offers a thrilling on-pavement driving experience, it doesn't compromise off-road performance — you really can have the best of both worlds.

5. A touch of practicality

The 2022 Bronco is no doubt a fun lifestyle vehicle, but it's also practical enough for families and friends. The two-door version has four seats, while the four-door version has five. Either edition has car seat anchors and enough cargo space, whether you're headed into the doors or just bringing a stroller to a playdate. Plus, the durable interior — which can even be hosed down on some models — is great for traveling with children.
