The Ford Bronco Sport launched for the 2021 model year and quickly found a receptive audience. Bronco Sport sales continue to be strong as the rugged crossover outpaced its competition in Q1 of this year and is one of the fastest-selling used vehicles on the market as used prices are actually higher than new in many instances. Regardless, the Bronco Sport – which was recently named one of the best crossovers priced under $30k – also has an important role to play in Brazil after launching there nearly one year ago in a single trim level at a fancy event. Now, the 2022 Ford Bronco has launched in Brazil, introducing an intriguing new feature, more power, and some new colors to the lineup.
That intriguing feature is standard power-folding side mirrors, which, interestingly enough, are not offered on any Bronco product in the U.S. Brazilians still only have one option when it comes to trim levels – the Wildtrak, which isn’t sold in the U.S. – but the addition of power folding mirrors isn’t the only change shoppers will notice for the 2022 model year. In fact, the crossover’s turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost powerplant gets a 13 horsepower bump as well, bringing that total to 253 horsepower – three more than the U.S. version.
In Brazil, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport also gets four new colors to add to its palette – Aurora Red, Batu Brown, Dover Gray and Indianapolis Blue (seen here) – bringing the total number of options to 11.
Changes to the 2022 Bronco Sport in the U.S. are a bit more subtle, as the crossover received little more than a name change for three of its optional packages. In addition to this change, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands also gained a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as Ford Authority reported back in October.
