2022 Ford Bronco Sport for Sale in Wilbraham, MA
The Basics: Trims and Mechanical Specs
The foursome of Bronco Sport trims consists of the Base, Big Bend, Outer Banks, and Badlands.
A 181 hp (190 lb.-ft. of torque) turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine and 8-speed automatic transmission come on the first three, while the Badlands gets a more powerful (250 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque) turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost with the same transmission. The 4×4 setup in this highest trim is upgraded with a twin-clutch rear drive, and the suspension had been adjusted specifically for off-road driving. The Badlands also receives a trail control mode. Base-engine Bronco Sports can tow as much as 2,000 pounds, but the stronger engine in the Badlands brings that number up a tad to 2,200 lb. when the Class II Trailer Tow Package is added.
Standard and Available Features
The Base Bronco Sport is ready for whatever you have in mind, getting a cargo-friendly safari-style roof with rails, plus LED headlights, cloth seats, a flip-up window in the rear liftgate, a terrain management system with five G.O.A.T. (goes over any terrain) modes, a pair of 12-volt power outlets, and four smart-charging USB ports. The Big Bend adds heated side mirrors, rear flood lights, privacy glass in the back doors and liftgate, automatic climate control, durable fabric seats and rubber-coated floor for easy cleaning, and a system of MOLLE straps on the front seatbacks. It’s eligible for a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, wireless phone charging, LED fog lights, intelligent access with push-button start, a universal garage door opener, and front seatback zipper pockets.
The Outer Banks adds some of those features (the fog lights, keyless entry, push-button start, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power driver’s seat, and heated front seats) as standard and also gets remote start, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing windshield wipers with de-icer, ambient interior lighting, leather upholstery, a power front passenger’s seat, a 110-volt power outlet, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Some changes are made to the Badlands to enhance its prowess on the rocky trails. It gets all-terrain tires, skid plates, an off-road suspension, tow hooks, two additional G.O.A.T. modes, Trail Control (cruise control for off-road), rubberized floors, and a storage area hidden under the back seat. Many of the standard features listed for the Outer Banks but not the Badlands are available on an optional basis.
Active Safety Features
Ford CoPilot360 is a suite of advanced driver-assist technologies that comes standard on most Fords, including the ’22 Bronco Sport. The base version includes automatic high-beams, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot collision warning with cross-traffic alert, and a backup camera. Another safety-related standard feature, the SOS post-crash alert system, will summon help if the occupants aren’t able to. Rear parking sensors are added to the Outer Banks, and the Badlands is upgraded with a 180-degree monitor at the front of the vehicle, complete with split view and a washer. Bronco Sport buyers (of all but the Base trim) can opt for additional active safety technologies through the Ford CoPilot360 Assist+ upgrade, which will add adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane centering, speed sign recognition, evasive steering, and navigation.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The SYNC 3 infotainment system keeps everyone in the Bronco Sport entertained and connected to the outside world. It has an 8-inch touchscreen, but it can also be controlled via enhanced voice recognition. Other standard features on the base version are smartphone connectivity (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth hands-free for phone use and audio streaming, FordPass Connect, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a sound system with six speakers. SiriusXM satellite radio is standard on the Big Bend; the two highest trims are eligible for an upgrade to a Bang & Olufsen audio system with 10 speakers and a subwoofer.
