2022 Ford Bronco Gains Two New Exterior Colors, Drops Three Existing Hues

Ford Authority reported that the 2022 Ford Bronco would be gaining new color options way back in January, but until now, all we knew was that one of them would be some shade of green. However, Ford has officially revealed two new colors for the rugged SUV’s second model year, which will take the place of three existing colors, resulting in 11 choices for those lucky enough to score a 2022 Ford Bronco.

Ford revealed the first new color – Eruption Green – at the Bronco Corral at the Woodward Dream Cruise, where the Ford Bronco is the featured heritage vehicle this year. The automaker discovered through customer feedback that it needed to add some sort of green hue to the Bronco lineup, and thus, it came up with this unique shade, which is inspired by Mallard Green – a color that debuted on the Bronco back in 1973.

In addition to Eruption Green, Ford also announced that Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat would also be available for the 2022 Bronco. The automaker hasn’t yet provided any official pictures of a Bronco wearing this hue, but we’ve already seen this color on the 2022 Ford Maverick, where it costs an additional $390.

Those holding out for one of the Bronco’s launch colors – Cyber Orange – will be happy to know that Ford hasn’t dropped that color for 2022, but instead has expanded its availability to include Base and Big Bend trim levels. However, it did cut three other exterior colors – Antimatter Blue, Lightning Blue Metallic, and Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat. Lightning Blue was previously only available on First Edition models.

These three discontinued colors will still be available until 2021 Ford Bronco order banks have closed, while 2022 Bronco production is expected to begin in late December. In addition to these exterior color changes, the 2022 Bronco will be available with a new Capable front bumper, special edition models, a manual transmission option with the Sasquatch package, and a roof rack for four-door Broncos equipped with the Sasquatch package. The Wildtrak will also drop its standard MIC hardtop for a soft top, as Ford Authority reported yesterday.

    Nice going Ford! I can’t get the Bronco I want, with the engine and top I want until 2023, and now you have canned the color I want as well! You’re making it tough to keep waiting.

    So, I have a reservation with my dealership and for Rapid Red… of course it won’t be made until 2022… but I made my order this year… are they saying they will honor those colors, like Rapid Red throughout the 2021 orders that were made? This crap needs to STOP!
