The Ford Bronco Everglades is the only Bronco trim level to come with a factory-installed snorkel. The snorkel is used to deliver optimal performance in harsh weather and terrain conditions. It helps the Everglades avoid flooding its engine with water when wading, which is something you’ll definitely want to try in a Bronco Everglades.

The Everglades’ snorkel also makes some great engine noises that add to the excitement of off-roading. The snorkel is both practical and distinctive enough to give this trim a unique exterior design.

The Ford Bronco Everglades wouldn’t be an Everglades without a snorkel. The snorkel is perhaps its most defining characteristic, but there’s another Everglades standard feature that is arguably just as important.

The Bronco Everglades features a winch

If you’re new to off-roading, a winch is one of those features that doesn’t feel necessary right up until the moment that you desperately need one. Like the snorkel, it’s designed to keep the Everglades and its occupants safe, especially in a tough off-roading situation.

Off-roading is inherently challenging. Part of the fun of tackling off-road trails is pushing a vehicle to its limits and conquering natural obstacles in a way that only specialized vehicles can. The winch is for when nature wins the fight against man and machine.

In the video above, a driver gets stuck in mud in the Bronco Everglades. The crew that is testing the Bronco Everglades uses the winch and anchors it to a tree so the off-road SUV can self-recover. Once the winch is activated, the Bronco Everglades gracefully rescues itself from the mud without a hitch.

When off-roading, drivers will often have a buddy accompany them in case either driver gets stuck. While off-roading solo through harsh terrain isn’t advised, the Bronco Everglades makes it possible for the SUV to save itself. The winch can also be used to tow other vehicles out of a similar sticky situation. This is the SUV you want on the trail in a jam.

Car and Driver gave the 2022 Ford Bronco a near-perfect overall score. If you can get your hands on one, the Bronco is a great small SUV with off-roading capability. If you don’t plan on some serious trail runs through mud and water, you probably don’t need a Ford Bronco Everglades.
