The 2022 Ford Bronco is an incredible feat in SUV engineering—not just because of its sleek design, impressive power, and top-tier safety features, but because it has the potential to become yet another iconic classic from Ford. It's easy to see why Ford didn't want to wait another 20 years for this model. It was first introduced in 1966 as a compact spinoff of the Ford F-Series trucks. Over the years, the Ford Bronco has won awards for its trailblazing design, efficiency, and off-road capability. The 2022 Bronco features visual changes that make it appear a bit more streamlined than the previous models, with tweaks such as a slightly redesigned grille, bolder taillights and headlights, and a raised ride height. The exterior of the 2022 Ford Bronco delivers a sleeker appearance. The headlights, grille, push bars, and taillights are all-new, while the hood resembles the 1936 Ford Model B.

The vehicle's cargo volume on the 4-door model is nearly 83 cubic feet, with the rear seat folded flat.
The interior of the Ford Bronco seems less stylistic, as it doesn't feature unique design elements like the previous model year. However, the interior still feels quite roomy, and it's equipped with lots of convenient features, such as a split-fold back seat with heated seats. The seats are made of high-quality leather, and they are very comfortable, with good support. The 2022 Ford Bronco can seat up to five passengers and features 60/40-split backrests for the rear seats.
The 2022 Bronco features an 8-12" touchscreen for infotainment, which features Apple CarPlay and other built-in apps. Drivers can also choose to get the optional SYNC 3 system, which allows users to use voice commands through their Bluetooth-enabled devices. The screen and all other controls are positioned high up on the dashboard, making them easy to reach while driving. This model also offers a backup camera.
The Bronco is of course loaded with impressive safety features, thanks to the numerous active safety technologies it offers. These include automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot information system, lane departure warning, and many other features to help drivers stay in control and fully aware of the vehicle and its surroundings while driving.
