Off-roading has become extremely popular in the United States over the past few years. Automakers are releasing off-road trims to capitalize on the trend. The Bronco is made for off-roading but the Bronco Everglades is designed for one of the harshest types of terrain: the swamp.

The Bronco Everglades has removable doors and a removable top. It comes standard with roof rails with crossbars, full underbody bash plates, and a heavy-duty modular front bumper.

It doesn’t get much more hardcore than the Bronco Everglades. The Everglades trim also features washout-capable rubberized flooring with drain plugs, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a terrain management system with seven different terrain settings. The off-road SUV includes 35-inch mud-terrain tires, an electronic-locking front and rear axle, and Bilstein shock absorbers.
