2022 Ford Bronco Everglades Seems Right At Home Testing In The Snow

Ford Authority spies have spotted 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades prototypes out testing numerous times wearing various levels of camouflage, ranging from extremely heavy to virtually non-existent. Ford also recently teased an Everglades prototype out testing on an off-road trail, where it used its factory winch to rescue a stuck Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro. Now, Ford North America Product Communications director Mike Levine has tweeted a couple of pictures of a 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades prototype driving around in some deep snow in the mountains near Death Valley.

“Notorious snow drift spot in the mountains above Death Valley for some winter trail testing, aka Mr. Plow test,” the tweet reads, which is attached to two photos showing the Bronco Everglades fording some seriously deep snow that essentially comes up to the running boards on the forthcoming model.

Aside from its ability to navigate off-road trails and deep snow, the Everglades is the very first Bronco to come equipped with a factory-installed winch and snorkel. The snorkel, located on the passenger side, feeds air to the induction box and allows it to ford deeper water than any other current Bronco model. There’s also a trap door located in the induction box that is designed to release any mud or water that might make it up that far.

The Everglades utilizes the same Ford Performance by Warn Bronco Winch Kit currently available via Ford’s official catalog, but that piece of kit comes standard on the Everglades. The Bronco Everglades rolls on a brand new set of wheels that are unique to this model and are wrapped with 35-inch LT315/70R17 Goodyear Territory MT tires.

Those tires are covered by new, uniquely designed fender flares that are finished in molded-in color (MIC) plastic, which is the same finish that also adorns the mirror caps, roof rails, door handles, and hardtop. The exterior wears Eruption Green Metallic paint, a new color choice for the 2022 model year.

As Ford Authority previously reported, the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades and 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor are expected to be fully revealed in Q1 of 2022, with a launch planned for next summer. A retro-styled Heritage Edition is also reportedly in the works.

    I have absolutely no use for this Bronco, I’m not particularly interested in off-roading and living in Georgia, snow is not a concern. But I’d love to own it regardless, it’s wicked cool!
