Ford Bronco Wins 2022 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year  
 

Entering its second year on the American market, the 2022 Ford Bronco easily wins the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year. Having some of the most advanced off-road technologies in its class, this midsize SUV rightfully claims this prestigious award.

Outstanding Design of the 2022 Ford Bronco

Ford installs the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine block on the 2022 Ford Bronco. For its entry-level designation, this four-cylinder powertrain packs a huge punch. Peak ratings of this signature turbocharged powerhouse include 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque with premium gasoline. The 2.7-L EcoBoost pumps out a combined total of 330 hp. This patented V-6 engine yields 415 lb-ft of torque. The high-end Raptor model runs on the 3.0-L EcoBoost engine. However, Ford hasn't officially finalized the ratings of this high-output, six-cylinder powerplant. Nevertheless, this exclusive turbo engine can tow up to 4,500 pounds as stipulated by the SAE J2807. Otherwise, the 2.3-L and 2.7-L engines have a standard trailering rating of 3,500 lb.

When it comes to off-road performance, the 2022 Bronco certainly has an unrivaled portfolio. This robust Ford SUV runs on an advanced 4x4 drive system with the unique Automatic On-Demand Engagement. For example, the two-speed transfer case delivers a total of four distinct driving settings. As expected, a neutral mode is also available from the transfer case, which electronically locks both axles as needed. A 10-speed automatic transmission system precisely transfers torque to the drivetrain on this award-winning Ford model. Such a gearbox is fully compatible with the segment-exclusive One-Pedal Drive, Trail Control, and Trail Turn Assist. Such features may be activated through the Off-Road Hero Switches. The 2022 Bronco is also sold with the High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension. Depending on your off-road plans, you could choose one of four different versions for the proprietary HOSS. Such a versatile suspension package incorporates the FOX dampers and other unique components.

Besides having unparalleled off-road technologies, the 2022 Bronco boasts phenomenal utilities. For example, this SUV offers two front tow hooks and a single rear tow hook. You could even buy this vehicle with a fully removable top and removable doors. A powder-coated tube step, brush guards, bash plates, and roof rails with cross bars are some other premium amenities that are optional on this adventurous Ford model. Heavy-duty floor lines and ambient footwell lighting surely come in handy for off-road trips.
