2022 Ford Bronco Gains New Hot Pepper Red Color: First Look

The 2022 Ford Bronco adds four new colors to its lineup: Eruption Green, Desert Sand, Code Orange, and Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat. Here’s our first look at the new Hot Pepper option.

Assigned order code EA, Hot Pepper Red is one of 11 available colors for the 2022 Ford Bronco.

The new Hot Pepper Red color is a $295 option, and is available with all trim levels except for the Everglades trim. In addition, the new color can be paired with all the interior color environments.

Ford Bronco Trim Levels:

  • Base
  • Big Bend
  • Blad Diamond
  • Outer Banks
  • Badlands
  • Wildtrak
  • Everglades
  • Raptor

Ford Bronco Interior Color Combinations:

  • Black Onyx
  • Blue/Black

Currently, the 2022 Bronco is available at dealers nationwide, although supply of the rugged 4×4 remains very tight as the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant is prioritizing producing customer orders over inventory units.

Ford Authority has extensively covered the changes to the Bronco for the 2022 model year, which include FoMoCo soon ditching the factory navigation system (in May), while adding an optional off-road suspension upgrade for the Wildtrak trim, and a removable hoop step option. In addition, Ford has introduced another Bronco trim in the form of the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades.

It is worth noting that demand for the sixth-generation Ford Bronco has remained far higher than supply since The Blue Oval reintroduced the revealed the reborn Bronco for the 2021 model year. FoMoCo expects this to remain the case at least through this year. However, certain options are more supply-constrained than others, so The Blue Oval has continued to encourage customers to drop several options from their order in order to receive their vehicles faster.

    How can I really find out when Ford will start my 2022 Bronco which was ordered in 2021 & delayed to 2022. I don’t need exact date, production month or production quarter would be nice. Dealer has no idea.

    1. GaryB

      you cant and you wont. your dealer will relay your build date and vin number. scheduling is typically the 3rd week of each month. call your dealer Friday morning and ask for an update. If you havent been scheduled yet, you wont be until after July 25th

    You have to stop with the “dropped navigation” narrative. Ford has flat out said they are not dropping nav.

    I know that even wireless Google maps being useful, I’d still much rather have it built-in on any vehicle. I have it on my ’18 Fx4 coyote.. love it a ton..

    Ordered my lux package 2022 Outer banks Bronco in November 2021. I live in Ontario, Canada. Was told by dealership that it would take 3 to 4 mths. We are now going on to 5 months, and I have not heard a word. If you have any suggestions on where I should go from here, it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you, J.Nichols.

      643 days for me, no build date or vin yet. nobody has any more information than Ford or your dealer. Nobody knows when anything will be built. It depends on your dealers allocation, your build constraints, and how many other buildable broncos at your dealer are in front of you (reservations with earlier timestamps than yours will be selected first)
