While many order holders are still waiting to take delivery of their 2021 Ford Bronco thanks to supplier-induced hardtop issues, most of those who have unscheduled orders are looking forward to the 2022 model year. Luckily for them, the 2022 Ford Bronco build & price configurator is officially live, and it confirms a number of changes that we’ve known about for some time now.
While the recently-announced 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor and Bronco Everglades are not currently present in the configurator, every other trim level and a host of new options are. This includes the addition of two new exterior colors – Eruption Green and Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat – which replace the now-discontinued Antimatter Blue, Lightning Blue Metallic, and Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat. Cyber Orange is also now available on all trims.
Perhaps the most exciting news, however, is the fact that customers can pair Ford’s Sasquatch Package with its seven-speed manual transmission (2.7L V6 EcoBoost models only), as Ford Authority recently reported. The optional package adds beadlock capable 17-inch black high gloss-painted aluminum wheels with black beauty rings, 35-inch T315/70R17 mud-terrain tires, position-sensitive Bilstein shock absorbers, a high-clearance suspension, high-clearance fender flares, and a 4.7 final drive ratio with electronic-locking front and rear axles.
The 2022 Ford Bronco build & price configurator also confirms a few additional changes to the lineup, including the presence of a new “Capable” front bumper, which was revealed on the Bronco Riptide concept and comes standard on Black Diamond and Badlands trims. Additionally, the Heavy-Duty Modular bumper is now available on every trim level.
Finally, a roof rack option has been added for four-door Sasquatch models (except Badlands with the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 or Wildtrak models with full underbody skid plates.), and the Wildtrak four-door has dropped its standard MIC hardtop for a soft top.
