2022 Ford Bronco Safety

 The NHTSA has yet to complete crash testing on the Ford Bronco. The IIHS criticised its head restraints for failing to protect against whiplash injuries, but the vehicle performed well in the independent safety agency's other five crash tests. It also rated its headlights as "Marginal." We won't be able to assign a rating until the NHTSA weighs in.

The Ford Bronco is available with a suite of driver-assist technology, such as automatic high beams and parking sensors. It also has equipment for low-speed rock crawling and trail driving. Visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites for more information on the Bronco's crash-test results. The following are important safety features:

Forward collision warning and automated emergency braking are options.

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are options.

Lane-departure and lane-keeping assistance is available.

Is the Ford Bronco a stylish SUV?

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.

The broad grille bears the Ford Bronco logo and connects the round headlights. The smaller Bronco Sport has a similar face, but the two are unmistakable. The Bronco has rock rails down low, as well as twin trail sights on the broad hood. The rear swing gate opens wide for cargo or use as a seat at the next campfire. Removable fender flares and modular heavy-duty bumpers, as well as new colours for 2022, such as our favourite, Eruption Green, can be swapped out over time to keep the Bronco looking fresh.
