2022 Ford Bronco Sport review: Our expert's take

By Fred Meier

Most significant changes: There are no significant changes for 2022, a year that follows the Bronco Sport’s debut as a 2021 model. Minor updates include three new paint colors and some reshuffled options packages.

Pricing: Price increases are modest, at less than $400 for all but the top trim level. The base 2022 Bronco Sport starts at $28,910 — up $200 from 2021. The Bronco Sport’s four trim levels top out with the Badlands model, which starts at $35,585 — up $730 from 2021. All prices include a $1,495 destination charge.

On sale: Now

Which Should You Buy, 2021 or 2022? With only slight increases in price for most trim levels, you might as well go for a 2022 Bronco Sport. But with new vehicles currently in tight supply, you’ll likely be getting essentially the same vehicle if you can only find a 2021. As of late December 2021, about a third of the new Bronco Sports listed for sale on Cars.com are 2021 models.

The Bronco Sport compact SUV was all-new for 2021, and it continues into its sophomore year with no substantial changes.

The Sport shares some underpinnings with the latest generation of Ford’s Escape SUV, but upgrades like standard all-wheel drive add genuine off-road capability for adventurous getaways. In contrast to the Escape’s city-friendly styling and interior, the Bronco Sport has a rugged-looking interior and upright, squared-off styling that borrows macho elements from the full-size Bronco SUV; some onlookers might also see hints of Land Rover influence.

The 2022 model year brings some renaming of existing options packages, and the Bronco Sport’s optional power moonroof is available only as part of the SUV’s Convenience, Tech and Premium Packages. There also are three new paint colors — Bronze Smoke Metallic, Hot Pepper Red Tinted Clearcoat and Velocity Blue Metallic — while two 2021 colors are dropped.

The Bronco offers four carryover trim levels (the debut year also offered a one-off First Edition model). The trims include a well-equipped base model and a Big Bend trim with more convenience features and available options. Both value-oriented models include standard AWD, an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, and a basic suite of active safety technology.

Topping the line in price are two versions with differing personalities. The Outer Banks is more civilized, with leather upholstery, fancier wheels and upscale features. The Badlands is the bad boy, with more power, an off-road-tuned suspension, more aggressive tires, skid plates, a 180-degree front camera, its own cloth upholstery with improved cleanability and more-capable AWD with additional off-road drive modes.


Powertrains for 2021 carry over unchanged. All trim levels except the Badlands have a 181-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission, plus standard AWD and five electronic drive modes. The Badlands has a standard 250-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and eight-speed automatic, upgraded AWD and seven drive modes.


Unchanged from 2021, all Bronco Sports have Ford’s Co-Pilot360 bundle of active safety features, including automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, automatic high beams and a blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. Optional on all but the base model is upgraded Co-Pilot360 Assist Plus for $895, which adds adaptive cruise control with hands-on lane-centering and evasive steering assist, along with an onboard navigation system with speed sign recognition and satellite radio.


Here is the Bronco Sport’s 2022 pricing, including increases from 2021. The totals include a required $1,495 destination charge, which remains unchanged.

  • Base: $28,910 (up $200)
  • Big Bend: $30,475 (up $260)
  • Outer Banks: $34,725 (up $370)
  • Badlands: $35,585 (up $730)

Ford hits a HOME RUN with baby Bronco.

I have a 2022 Bronco Sport Base model with no extras (plain Jane) coming from a 2021 Ram big horn truck with hemi. Ive had it 2 months now and I can truly say IMO and my needs this is so much better than the Ram. Now I live alone so its just me and have the rear seats folded flat so its like a small truck with a camper shell. The 1.5 ecoboost engine runs great and power is surprising good, but slow compared to the Hemi 5.7 but the hemi was getting 16 MPG while the bronco get 26 MPG and now since fuel is at a all time price high so I can live with it. What really nice is it doesn't look like every small SUV out there, its unique in styling and has that old school boxy look and feel which I really like and miss. It reminds me of my 87 and 90 nissan pathfinder. 2 things about the base model. 1. windows are not tinted which is a easy fix for 200 to 300 bucks. 2. And this applies to every Bronco model out and Ford needs to address it. THE TIRES, Ford puts these wimpy highway tread that is SO WRONG for the Bronco. So go get all terrain tires and get this baby Bronco the look she deserves for around 600 bucks. So now those 2 things are my only complains and they are fixed now. Im very happy with the baby Bronco, parking lots are easy peasy now, zipping in and out of traffic is a breeze. My dogs really enjoy the ride too as now they sit in the back and just look like Joe Cool Snoopy. Now shop around as dealers are charging way more the MSRP, upwards to 5000 to 10000 dollars which is crazy and Ford should address this issue but dont. I did and got 1000 dollars under MSRP with a lifetime warranty at no charge. FORD hit this one out of the ballpark with baby and big brother BRONCO IMO. Would I do it all over again, in a HEARTBEAT...Sorry Chevy but your Blazer FAILED my wants and needs.


False advertisement

This dealer is falsely advertising this listing. When I called they gave me the run around and told me this is a loaner for service and can not be sold
