Ford Gets Tropical with 2022 Bronco Everglades

2022 Ford Bronco Everglades | Orlando, FL

Orlandoans know a thing or two about seeking and finding adventure. So does Ford. The 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades is perhaps the most ideal model for Florida fun, boasting all the tools you’ll need to make the most out of your next run through the wetlands.

Perhaps the coolest upgrade you get with the Bronco Everglades is a class-exclusive signature snorkel. Running up along the A-pillar on the passenger side, this snorkel helps the SUV perform in tough conditions like deep water and heavy dust.

“Bronco enthusiasts demand style as well as performance, so we challenged ourselves to create a snorkel with high-end function and a look that really suits the vehicle,” said Ryan Olsson, design manager. “What really sets the Everglades snorkel apart is the head and reversible intake. It completely changes the way a snorkel can look and function.”

Speaking of look and function, the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades serves both purposes nicely. It stands out even from other models in the Bronco lineup thanks to its Carbonized Gray grille with gloss black Bronco lettering and exclusive Desert Sand color option. And it gets to work with features like a 300-horsepower EcoBoost® engine and an advanced 4×4 system.

The 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades arrives this summer, but it will likely be very hard to get your hands on one if you don’t already have a Ford Bronco reserved. But don’t fret! The Everglades is just one of the many models available in the Bronco stable. Check out our selection online or start your custom order with Tropical Ford today.

2022 Ford Maverick, Bronco Named North American Truck, Utility Vehicle of the Year

Ford has done it again … twice. After taking home top honors last year, Ford once again won the North American Truck of the Year and North American Utility Vehicle of the Year awards thanks to the 2022 Ford Maverick and Bronco, respectively.

Fifty independent jurors gave the all-new Maverick and Bronco top honors running away. The 2022 Ford Maverick outscored the two runners up combined in terms of total points while the Bronco held the largest margin of victory over a second-place vehicle.

The jurors did not mince words in expressing their love for the Maverick and Bronco. Car and Driver’s Steven Cole Smith called the Maverick “the best buy in the North American auto realm” thanks to its low price and great fuel economy. Of the 2022 Ford Bronco, The Detroit News’ Henry Payne says the off-road SUV is “a home run” that stands as an immediate challenger to the competition.

Neither the 2022 Ford Maverick or 2022 Ford Bronco are strangers to big-time awards. They’re also the regular recipients of driver admiration — customers who’ve taken delivery of both at Tropical Ford in Orlando have sung their praises loud and clear. Want to ride with an award-winner? Contact the team at Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida, and learn how you can get behind the wheel of the 2022 Ford Maverick or 2022 Ford Bronco — the 2022 North American Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year.

Ford Shows Off Maverick, Bronco Customization at SEMA 2021

If there’s one thing Ford knows a thing or two about, it’s customization. Getting your Ford, your way is easy at Tropical Ford thanks to our end-to-end custom order process. Ford recently showed off how you could customize new vehicles like the Maverick and Bronco even more by bringing 40 personalized project vehicles to this year’s SEMA Show.

“We designed Ford vehicles to be easier to customize, with installation points and aftermarket accessories engineered from the start of the design process,” said Eric Cin, Ford global director, vehicle personalization, accessories, and licensing. “We work actively with the aftermarket to share our product designs so customers can personalize and put the finishing touches on their vehicle to make it all their own.”

Many of the vehicles displayed at the 2021 SEMA Show reveal that you can change the complexion of a Ford vehicle with just a few tweaks. Tucci Hot Rods turned the all-new Maverick into a low-stanced street truck reminiscent of classic hot rods. BDS Suspensions transformed a Bronco two-door into a pickup truck perfect for first responders.

But customization isn’t just for the pros.

Ford Shows Off Built Wild™ Broncos at SEMA 2021

Each year, Ford plays a starring role at SEMA — the mega-popular convention for aftermarket vehicle customizers. At SEMA 2021 this October, Ford came to play with several custom takes on one of the newest additions to the lineup — the Built Wild™ Ford Bronco.

Ford brought four Ford Broncos and two Bronco Sports at SEMA 2021, showing off how customizable the new off-road-ready SUVs are. While each of the six custom Bronco vehicles is exciting and interesting in its own way, our favorite might just be the 2021 Bronco RTR Fun-Runner.

Created by Ford Performance legend and professional fun-haver Vaughn Gittin Jr., the Bronco RTR Fun-Runner leverages a mix of Ford Licensed Accessories and Ford Performance parts, turning a Bronco Badlands™ two-door into an SUV that looks perfect for a day at the beach in Florida.

But the Fun-Runner is just the tip of the iceberg. The 2021 Ford Bronco by Tucci Hot Rods is maybe the most unique of the bunch, swapping in Mattracks 88-Series quad tracks for wheels to make it better suited for mountain expeditions. There’s also the impressive 2021 Bronco BAJA FORGED by LGE-CTS Motorsports, which features an ICON Vehicle Dynamics® 3.0 suspension lift and an onboard refrigerator. On top of these and other Broncos, Ford rolled out customized takes on the all-new Maverick, Mustang, Mustang Mach-E, and F-150 at SEMA 2021. If you want to upgrade your Ford with great Ford Accessories, contact Tropical Ford in Orlando and we’ll help hook you up.

The Bronco is one of the most customizable vehicles on the road today with over 200 factory-backed accessories.

Ford makes sure the Bronco Riptide looks ready for a beach day with tubular doors, a bright Velocity Blue exterior, and a durable and stylish marine-grade vinyl-trimmed interior.

“Thanks to the Bronco modular design, we were able to outfit the vehicle with adventure gear that allows for freedom and versatility,” said Bronco Color and Materials Designer Missy Coolsaet. “Whether heading off to the mountains or along the California coast, the Bronco Riptide custom vehicle is ready for adventure.”

The Ford Bronco Riptide is well-suited for Florida adventuring, too. Available through Tropical Ford, the all-new Bronco two-door and four-door are a loving homage to the past that brings the Blue Oval’s reputation for off-road excitement into the 21st century.

Your 2021 Ford Bronco Can be as Unique as You

The original Bronco was beloved by its dedicated fans for its athletic performance and its open-air philosophy, so many people had high expectations when Ford announced it was resurrecting the iconic nameplate for 2021. Luckily for long-time Bronco lovers, the revived 4×4 is just as adventurous as before – and even more customizable.

You’re probably familiar with the fact that the Ford Bronco has removable doors and roof panels to promote an open-air feel. However, you might not know that truly adventurous souls can basically remove any part of the Bronco’s exterior parts (including mudguards and fenders) to swap them out for something else depending on your mood. You’ll be able to adjust the appearance and functionality of your Bronco nearly as easily as you switch between G.O.A.T. modes™.

On top of allowing you to make your vehicle as unique as you are, the modular nature of the Ford Bronco gives you an affordable way to refresh your vehicle over and over again. Per the chief Bronco designer, Paul Wraith, the Bronco’s mix-and-match design philosophy “gives [owners] the opportunity to create the perfect 4×4 for their unique needs without requiring a lot of mechanical expertise or experience.”

The adventurous 2021 Ford Bronco will be available at Tropical Ford before you know it, so keep an eye on our online inventory.

Ford Announces Bronco Wild Fund for Conservation

Ford Announces Bronco Wild Fund for Conservation | Horses in a field | Tropical Ford | Orlando, FL

Just like the majestic animal the SUV gets its name from, the recently-revived Ford Bronco – and newly-minted Ford Bronco Sport – were Built Wild™ to roam free and find adventure at every turn. In honor of the resurrection of the Bronco, Ford has created an endowment to help protect the rugged terrain we all love to explore.

The all-new Bronco Wild Fund is expected to raise as much as $5 million each year from the sale of Ford Bronco and Bronco sport vehicles as well as licensed apparel and other merchandise. The Bronco’s Brand Marketing Manager, Mark Grueber, explains that the goal of the initiative is to allow Bronco lovers to “connect with the outdoors on a deeper, more personal level – ultimately enabling them to become responsible stewards of our nation’s treasures.”

The first recipient organization of funds from the Bronco Wild Fund is the National Forest Foundation, which is expected to use Ford’s contributions to plant one million trees before 2022 in continued reforestation efforts. The second Bronco Wild Fund beneficiary is Outward Bound USA, which will use the funding to empower youth while instilling in them a love of the great outdoors.

Reserve a 2021 Ford Bronco or Ford Bronco Sport from Tropical Ford today to make your contribution to the Bronco Wild Fund.
