2022 Ford Bronco Everglades In Desert Sand: Real World Photo Gallery

After a trademark filing and a sudden addition to the 2022 Ford Bronco order guide, the new Everglades model was finally confirmed last October. Ford Authority spies then spotted a 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades prototype covered in heavy camo shortly thereafter before the new addition to the SUV’s lineup was revealed back in February. Now, Ford Authority spies have spotted a 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades finished in Desert Sand, giving us our first real-world look at that particular combination.

The 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades is easy to differentiate from every other model in the SUV’s lineup thanks to a few unique features that only it comes equipped with from the factory – a snorkel that allows it to ford deep water, as well as a Zeon 10-S Warn winch that’s fitted to Ford’s heavy-duty modular front bumper, which also features a safari bar. A Carbonized Gray front grille with gloss black lettering and a bash plate round out the changes up front.

Down the side, we get a good look at the Bronco Everglades’ molded-in color (MIC) hardtop, which is fitted with roof rails and crossbars.  A set of rock rails doubles as steps to aid ingress and egress, while a large “Everglades” graphic with a topography of the famous Florida wetlands of the same name resides beneath the snorkel. A set of squared-off fender flares cover unique 17-inch Carbonized Gray painted alloy wheels wrapped with 35-inch LT315/70R17 BSW Mud-Terrain tires. Exterior color options include Desert Sand, Eruption Green, Area 51, Shadow Black, and Cactus Gray.

Underneath, the Everglades features raised vents on its front and rear axles, transfer case, and transmission that enable it to ford water as deep as 36.4 inches. Inside the cabin, the rugged SUV features standard marine-grade vinyl seats, rubberized washout flooring, and Urban Green accents on the grab handles, air register vents, and seat stitching. The Everglades is powered exclusively by the turbocharged Ford 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost powerplant.

As Ford Authority reported earlier this year, Ford Bronco chief engineer Jolanta Coffey pushed hard to make the Everglades a reality – a difficult task given the fact that building and selling a vehicle with its unique features seemed risky at that time.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    How about getting the orders filled from last year before you worry about new models

      I agree! I’ve got a Day 2 reservation and an initial order on Jan 21st, 2021 and no build week yet. Ford should be deeply ashamed!

    I like the Desert Sand color and the special features of the Everglades. One correction – the GY Wrangler Territory tires are not mud terrain tires. According to Good Year the MT stands for Maximum Traction. Genuine mud terrain tires have a much more aggressive tread.
