Looking for a family-friendly SUV with adventure-ready capabilities? The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is exactly what you need. Perfect for running errands, driving the kids to school, and going on camping trips, the Bronco Sport also features all the latest infotainment and safety technologies, making it a superbly well-rounded ride.
Every version of the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport comes with a standard 4x4 drivetrain designed to conquer trails. The top-of-the-line Bronco Sport Badlands™ combines this with a twin-clutch rear drive unit that further enhances control in uncertain conditions, whether you’re churning through mud or looking for purchase on a steep road during an icy winter evening.
To help you get through any kind of terrain, the Ford Bronco Sport is offered with a Terrain Management System™ with up to seven G.O.A.T. Modes™, giving you extra confidence on sand, mud, snow, and more. Another useful feature is the available Trail Control™, which acts like a low-speed cruise control for the off-road, enabling you to focus only on steering around and over obstacles.
For the best off-road capability, choose the Ford Bronco Sport Badlands™, which comes with a class-leading 8.8 inches of ground clearance, 23.6 inches of water fording capability, and optional off-road tires. For families with active lifestyles, the Ford Bronco Sport offers the perfect combination of comfort and ruggedness.
In a world increasingly full of SUVs, it’s getting tougher and tougher to stand out. Not for the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport. Its heritage-inspired design, which includes a one-piece grille, signature rounded headlamps, and unpainted finishes, blends casual confidence with retro style. Its stance says it’s always ready for adventure, and its tall, safari-style roof not only gives the SUV a distinctive look, but also increase second-row headroom for your passengers. Alternatively, it gives you the space to store two bikes standing up when those seats are folded flat, something few SUVs can manage.
There are all kinds of other practical designs that make the Bronco Sport so useful, like its MOLLE strap system or low-load, rubberized cargo area that facilitates packing up your gear and cleaning up afterward. The Bronco Sport is also offered with a flip-up tailgate glass, Cargo Management System with a camp table, and dozens of high-quality accessories that includes roof-mounted tents and bike racks. It’s easier than ever to get your Bronco Sport to look just right and have all the features you need.
Every 2022 Ford Bronco Sport comes with a standard SYNC® 3 infotainment system that runs on a high-definition 8-inch touch-screen display. It has built-in Apple CarPlay® And Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity so it’s easy to access your favorite apps and audio streaming services. Inside the media hub and center console, as well as behind the center console, you’ll find USB-C and USB-A ports to help you keep your devices connected and charged. Optional features like SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, a B&O® premium sound system, and wireless charging pad further expand your entertainment options while helping you avoid cable clutter.
Every Bronco Sport is also equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360™, a suite of advanced driver assistance systems that includes automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-keeping assistance. That’s on top of a variety of other safety features that have helped the Bronco Sport earn a 2022 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. On higher trim levels, the SUV can also be equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360™ Assist+, which adds adaptive cruise control, evasive steering assistance, and built-in navigation.
The interior of the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is spacious and well appointed, with quality materials and design exceeding what you might expect for its price. It’s impressively roomy across both rows, making the SUV just as well suited for families with small children as for couples who regularly go on adventures with adult friends. The Bronco Sport Big Bend™ has extra sound deadening that you’ll find worthwhile after a long day at work, as well as heated mirrors and convenient push-button start operation.
The Convenience Package, most of whose features are standard on the Outer Banks™ trim and above, comes with heated front seats for extra year-round comfort. Other notable features include a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers, remote start technology, and genuine leather seating, all giving the SUV an upscale feel while taking a little work out of every drive. And at the highest trim level, the Ford Bronco Sport Badlands™ isn’t just upscale. With its two-tone leather seats, it’s positively luxurious.
There are two turbocharged engines available for the 2022 Bronco Sport. The base engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder rated at 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. It delivers a strong combination of power, responsiveness, and fuel economy, and most families will find it more than adequate. However, a more powerful engine is optional across the lineup, and standard at the Badlands trim level: a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. In exchange for a few miles per gallon, it provides muscular performance and makes the Bronco Sport a true joy to drive both on and off the road.
The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is one of those vehicles that’s better experienced in person. The spec sheet doesn’t do it justice, and it’s more than the sum of its parts. Visit Motor Inn of Spirit Lake, Iowa, to get behind the wheel and learn more about this exceptional SUV!
