2022 Ford Bronco Interior

 When the Bronco returned to an SUV-dominated landscape after a 25-year hiatus, Ford nailed the balance of retro and modern. SUVs abound, but the brick-like Bronco stands out for honouring its flat-sided predecessor as well as ushering in a new era of customization. The timeless exterior receives two points, while the rugged interior receives one point up to an 8.

With plenty of head and shoulder room, the 2022 Ford Bronco seats four people in two-door configurations or five people in four-door models. It's longer, wider, and more spacious than the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

Our rating here is based on the four-door Bronco. It costs $2,345 more than the base two-door model in most grades and adds 16 inches in length. It gets one point for its large cargo space (35.6 cubic feet) and 36 inches of rear leg room. However, at highway speeds, the rattling hard top and available all-terrain tyres create so much wind and road noise that it loses a point to finish with a 6 on our scale.

2022 Ford Bronco Comfort 

The Ford Bronco's front seat cushions, like those of the Escape and Bronco Sport, are on the short side, but the back bolstering is adequate. Seating four 6-footers in two-door models makes the happy trails short-lived. The four-door model has 36.3 inches of rear leg room and more hip and shoulder room, but the fifth seat is best suited for the youngest child.

The interior design of the Bronco reflects its spirit of adventure and durability. Cloth upholstery is standard, and leather is available as an option, but the boat-like vinyl seats on Badlands trims are mildew-resistant. Rubberized flooring is available, as are six passive drain plugs that release with a quarter turn, giving owners the confidence to wade and clean without fear.
