The Ford Bronco is expected to be a carryover for the 2022 model year. The latest version of the brand’s iconic SUV was reintroduced for 2021, offering a decidedly more upscale take on the rugged off-roader in both 2- and 4-door styles. It was preceded by a crossover called the Bronco Sport with mechanical similarities to the Escape.
While Ford has not yet released official specs and pricing yet, we do know that overwhelming early interest for the model’s long-anticipated 2021 redesign has compelled the brand to state on its official website that some orders may be pushed to the 2022 model year. If that proves to be the case, we could see a scenario similar to the one Chevy encountered with the C8 Corvette due to supply constraints.
Unlike other Ford models, the Bronco may command high prices considering the brand has amassed over 200,000 reservations. If you are a reservation-holder, you should be aware that dealers will require you to convert your reservation to a firm order. While current Bronco pricing starts at $29,995 with destination for the cheapest 2-door style, the 4-door model starts quite a bit higher at $34,695.
As we noted recently, the Bronco benefits from unusually high residual values that can make the 4-door cheaper to lease than the 2-door. That said, buyers looking to take advantage of Ford Plan Pricing should be aware that the Bronco is excluded from X-Plan Friends and Neighbors Pricing.
Ford has not yet announced a release date for the 2022 Bronco. The redesign will debut in the summer of 2021 following a production delay from the original spring timeframe. Check back for updates as they become available.
