Guess what’s moving on up, moving on up! It’s the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport, and by moving on up, we mean in price. The Ford Bronco Sport is proving to be a popular option that people are willing to pay for. But does the extra cash come with any additional features?
Is the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport worth buying?
Yes, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is still a pretty new rugged option that’s stealing buyers from other brands. It has enough cargo space and passenger room to seat a family of five. Plus, the Bronco Sport serves as a comfortable and convenient daily driver.
The 2021 model has an MSRP of $27,215. In June 2021, the Bronco Sport received a price increase of $540, and the Badlands trim went up in price by $1,115. Ford said that the market conditions were the reason for the price increase.
Now the 2022 Bronco Sport has an MSRP of $28,760. This price includes the $1,495 destination fee. So, it only breaks down to about a $50 increase for the base model.
The Big Bend trim will start at $30,320 and has a $105 increase. The Outer Banks model rose in price by $125 and starts at $24,570. Last but not least, the top-of-the-line Badlands model will begin at about $35,430 and has a $575 price increase from 2021.
What’s new for the 2022 Bronco Sport?
There aren’t many changes coming to the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport. It’s still so new that it really doesn’t need many tweaks or upgrades yet. One exciting change is the addition of a few new colors. The Bronco Sport is available in a new shade of Bronze Smoke Metallic, Pepper Red Tinted Clear Coat, and Velocity Blue.
The moon roof is now a standalone option. It used to be included in different equipment packages, but now you can get them without the moon roof. Also, the cargo management system with a shelf divider is available on the base trim.
Another change involves the rubberized seatbacks. They are optional on the Big Bend trim and standard with the Outer Banks. The leather steering wheel is now standard on the Badlands instead of only being available with an additional equipment package. The standard roof rack on Outbanks and Badlands trims has a slightly different style on the side rails.
The Bronco Sport packages changed
With the new convenience package, you get a keypad entry pillar, push-button start, and intelligent access. It also includes heated seats, rear parking sensors, and a wireless phone charging pad.
The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport Outer Banks tech package includes the Bang and Olufsen audio system, a wireless charging pad, and a universal garage door opener.
With the Premium Package, you get a six-way power passenger seat, dimming rearview mirror, the 10-speaker audio system, body-colored door handles, dual-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start, wireless phone charging, and the garage door opener.
We could see more changes later in the middle of 2022. We’re still waiting on the hybrid engine to make an appearance. We know that the big Bronco is getting a Raptor trim, but maybe the Bronco Sport will too.
