2022 Ford Bronco Everglades Gets Snorkel, Winch, Swampfull of Cool

Bronco Everglades is ready for the swamp

  • Everglades Bronco comes with 10,000 lb winch

  • 36-inches of water fording is the best in the segment


Ford has just launched another special edition of the Bronco SUV, aimed at customers who are looking at deep water and want a factory winch. It’s called the Ford Bronco Everglades, and it is making its debut at the Chicago auto show. In the U.S., it is exclusively for customers already on the waiting list for a standard Bronco, but if you’re a Canadian shopper and not on the list already, we’ve got good news.

The two main extras that come with the 2022 Bronco Everglades are the snorkel and that winch. The snorkel runs up the A-pillar, and Ford says it “optimizes vehicle performance in dust, snow, and water,” by raising the air intake well above whatever you’re driving through. While Toyota offers a similar intake on the Tacoma TRD Pro, that brand is careful to make clear it doesn’t offer any extra fording capability.

Ford raised the vents for the front and rear axles, transfer case, and transmission, making the Everglades capable of fording up to 36.4-inches of water. That’s three inches better than the Bronco Sasquatch and a half a foot more water than the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

The other big addition is a Ford Performance modular front bumper sporting a Zeon 10-S winch from Warn. With a 10,000 lb capability and 100-feet of synthetic line, it’s ready to drag you out of the worst the trail has to offer or to help get your friends unstuck.

Marine-grade vinyl seats and a hose-out floor make the interior ready for off-roading. It will also offer a safari bar, rock rails, and steel bash plates. The Everglades is an add-on to the Sasquatch pack, so it comes with that truck’s 35-inch Goodyear tires and other off-road tweaks.

Lastly, new squared-off wheel arches and Everglades topography decals finish the cosmetic upgrades. It will be offered in five colours including the Everglades-exclusive Desert Sand.

Order books open in March for deliveries starting in the summer. Like we said up top, in the States, it’s only available for people who have a Bronco reservation. In Canada, anyone can put their order down for an Everglades, though it will probably sell out quickly.
