2022 Ford Bronco Sport Gets More Expensive Across All Trims

The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport will be more expensive across all trims, according to sources familiar with its upcoming launch. The increases arrive after the 2021 Bronco Sport experienced several price increases earlier this year, including one limited to models equipped with the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ suite of safety features.

Ford Bronco Sport Price Comparison
Trim Level 2022 Ford Bronco Sport 2021 Ford Bronco Sport +/- 2022
Base $27,265 $27,215 +$50
Big Bend $28,825 $28,720 +$105
Outer Banks $33,075 $32,860 +$215
Badlands $33,935 $33,360 +$575
  • Prices do not include the mandatory $1,495 destination fee

Aside from the Badlands trim, pricing does not substantially jump, but no 2022 Sport is cheaper than its 2021 counterpart. It should be noted that incentives could potentially eliminate these across the board price increases. As Ford Authority reported last month, the automaker offered up to $1,500 in discounts plus special financing rates in September 2021. Additionally, a recent change to the Ford rebate system may enable Bronco Sport shoppers to acquire the off-road oriented vehicle for even less, although buyers should check with their local dealers for exact details on current promotions.

Aspiring Badlands owners will have to decide if the higher price is worth it for the extra goodies that are uniquely available on the trim, which include the Ford 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 with twin clutch rear drive unit, enhanced suspension components, metal bash plates, front tow hooks, and SelectShift paddle shifters, among other upgrades.

The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport will arrive just as the model begins to rival its older and larger siblings in sales, with the subcompact beating the compact 2021 Ford Escape in volume last month. In terms of model year changes, the Badlands does gain a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel, a feature that had been a staple of the Outer Banks trim, where it is also heated on all configurations.

    I like this vehicle, I really do, but there’s no way in hell I’m spending Badlands money to get the 2-liter. I’ll take the Maverick XLT 2-liter instead for right at $30k (a bit over in FX4 trim).

    so, what’s the point of manufacturer’s rebate, when dealers price gouge you anyway ?
