I don’t know if it’s because of his robust appearance or because of the place chosen for the official photo session, but the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades It is worthy of starring in some installment of Jurassic Park. His name comes from the American National Park. What’s more, his topographical map can be seen on the front fender of the SUV. And watch out because it houses a easter egg.
Ford loves to put Easter eggs in his vehicles. We’ve seen everything from the Mustang logo etched into the windshield to a Baja 1000 checkpoint map on the F-150 Raptor box graphics. The new 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades is no exception. The fender graphic has a built-in ruler to measure wading depth.
Additionally, the latest addition to the growing Bronco family comes standard with a full cast of accessories that make it even more capable. It will be offered in five colors. Orders will open in March only for those who have a Bronco reserved. Prices start at US$53,000.
