In yet another case in which consumers are being given an incentive to wait, Ford is already offering an APR deal on the 2022 Bronco Sport. According to a bulletin sent to dealers, those looking to buy the latest version of the wildly popular SUV are able to score interest rates as low as 0.9% when financing through Ford Credit.

To start, all 2022 Bronco Sports offer 0.9% APR for 36 months through October 4th. Alternatively, Ford Credit has 48-, 60- and 72-month options at 1.9%, 2.9%, and 4.9%, respectively. There's even an 84-month financing option at 6.9%, although that could translate to well over $9,000 in interest on a $35,000 crossover SUV.

There's no rebate yet on the 2022 Bronco Sport, and we don't expect to see one anytime soon. Even though the 2021 model does feature a $500 cash incentive, it's actually limited to buyers with a trade-in vehicle. If you're financing, choosing a 2021 Bronco Sport offers just a 1% advantage in interest rate.

On a 5-year loan, the difference in rates equates to just over $900 in additional interest on a $35,000 SUV. That could give buyers a reason to wait, especially considering the fact that severe Bronco Sport markups show no indication of letting up, especially with a worsening inventory shortage at dealers.

If you're looking to lease your 2022 Bronco Sport, the mid-tier Big Bend trim continues to offer an advantage over other styles. Based on Ford's residual value guide, the Big Bend trim is listed at 57%. In contrast, the SUV's base trim comes in at 54%. These figures are based on a 36-month lease with 10,500 miles/year.

When the Bronco Sport first arrived, quirks like this made the base trim just $2/month cheaper to lease than the Big Bend despite a sizable difference in MSRPs. If you're thinking of waiting for the newest model, it's highly possible that the cheapest Bronco Sport may not necessarily end up being the best deal.
