Ford’s revitalization of the Bronco nameplate has taken the auto industry by storm, to put it lightly. The vehicle has managed to win multiple awards and is looked at as a competitive––and in some ways, superior––alternative to the Jeep Wrangler. With a lot of enthusiasts clamoring to get their hands on the new Bronco, it definitely has some people questioning which version of the Bronco is right for them and how much they should be willing to spend on it? Another big question is about the top-end Bronco and what all you get with it? So if you were looking to get the most out of a fully-loaded SUV when it comes to the 2022 Ford Bronco sales, how much would it cost you, and what would you get? Well, that’s what we’re here to answer today.
How Much Is a Fully Loaded 2022 Ford Bronco?
When it comes to the question of a fully-loaded 2022 Ford Bronco, it depends on the trim you’re talking about. The Bronco is available in eight different trims, and each one is available with its own packages and accessories. You can see the trims’ MSRP and fully loaded prices listed below. While there isn’t a strict definition of what “fully-loaded” means, the prices in this list include all the major options but not minor additions like extra-price paint colors and floor mats.
2022 Bronco Two-Door Starting MSRP:
- Bronco: $34,700
- Big Bend: $35,285
- Black Diamond: $37,950
- Outer Banks: $40,850
- Badlands: $44,495
- Wildtrak: $49,780
- Everglades: $53,000
- Raptor: $68,500
2022 Bronco Four-Door Fully-Loaded MSRP:
- Bronco: $50,145
- Big Bend: $55,725
- Black Diamond: $58,040
- Outer Banks: $61,025
- Badlands: $67,015
- Wildtrak: $68,165
- Everglades: $56,915
- Raptor: $78,990
As you can see, that is quite a jump from a base version with no options and a fully-loaded model of the same trim. While some vehicles only give you a few basic options to choose from, Ford looked at how important modifications are to off-roaders and designed the Bronco to give drivers maximum customization right off the lot. Even the base trim of the Bronco gives you access to enough serious upgrades to increase its price tag by over 50%. The question is, what are these upgrades, and are they worth the money?
Price of Accessories, Packages, and Options
The price of options will scale to what you want. For instance, opting for a four-door over a two-door model will instantly increase the price of the Bronco by at least $2,000. While it wasn’t included in the above lists, some of the color options can add up to $595 to the price tag. The wheels can also add quite a bit to the overall price as well, up to $1,995 for the 17-inch forged wheels offered on the Bronco Raptor. If you want other major features, such as the available leather-trimmed vinyl seats on the Outer Banks, you could be looking at another $2,195 added to the total. While some of these options can be expensive, they are usually priced rather fairly for what you get.
There are also other minor features that can be added to the overall package with certain equipment, such as on-road and off-road assistance kits for up to $210. Features like sound deadening, a 360-degree HD camera, ambient lighting, built-in navigation support, heated steering, and adaptive cruise control are all part of the different equipment groups. The highest tier equipment group, the Lux Package, will run you up to $5,085 on the Badlands, although it is cheaper on other trims. But no matter which trim you choose, the optional 2.7L EcoBoost engine adds $1,895. When it comes to optional add-ons, the most expensive package available is the Sasquatch Package, which will run you up to $6,590 on the Big Bend.
The Outer Banks trim and above come with additional options and packages that you don’t have access to with the Base, the Big Bend, or the Black Diamond trims. For instance, the 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen built-in surround sound system, heated steering, and wireless charging are exclusive to the Lux Package, but only certain trims have access to the High and Lux Package options. The Base, Big Bend, and Black Diamond do have access to the Standard Package and Mid Package equipment groups, however.
The Badlands trim and above automatically come with the Sasquatch Package included, but also offer more customization when it comes to additional packages. For instance, you have more options with exterior customization and interior luxury with the Wildtrak trim and above. You can opt for cloth or leather seating, and you have access to slightly different exterior body protection that coincides with the Sasquatch Package. You also have access to specific exterior graphics with some trims, which, while more expensive, will give you more personalization over the Bronco. Alternatively, some trims also have the option for graphics delete packages at no added cost if you don’t want to stand out. So there is a lot of give and take when it comes to mixing and matching certain options and packages with certain trims.
Pluses and Minuses of Packages
Keep in mind that some of the trims can be altered with packages, but it also changes the trim you purchase. For instance, you can add the Sasquatch Package, giving you advanced 4×4 with automatic on-demand engagement and a 4.7 locking rear axle final drive ratio for improved traction. However, it removes a lot of other add-on packages and accessories as well, including the safe deposit console lock box, the fender flare kit, the body appearance kit, and the cargo area storage drawer. Additionally, if you opt for the Sasquatch Package, it means you no longer have access to other accessories and add-ons, such as the cockpit cover, spare tire covers, slide-out tailgate, or body armor kits.
In the same way, if you opt for the most expensive roof, the retractable full soft top twill, you obviously no longer have access to the other roof styles, such as the soft canvas or the limited retractable front row soft-top twill. Additionally, if you go for the soft black cloth with a hard-top prep kit, then you lose access to the hard carbonized gray top package, the hard-top sound deadening package, and the roof rails with crossbars. All of these small changes mean that the definition of “fully loaded” varies depending on how you can mix and match some packages. It’s perfectly possible to pay more and not get some features available on a more affordable model.
Overall, you have a lot to work with when it comes to the 2022 Ford Bronco sales options and customization. Lots of scalable packages, luxury features, and trims to choose from. You can mix and match most of the Bronco’s optional packages. Of course, the higher-end trims have access to more base features and a wider variety of packages, so that’s certainly something to keep in mind. However, if you go for a fully-loaded model, especially with the Everglades or Raptor trims, you’re basically getting everything you could want out of the Bronco and then some.
