Ford introduces a special version for the Bronco: the Everglades. This ‘limited edition’ doesn’t just consist of a color and some stickers, but makes the Bronco even more off-road-worthy than it already was.

The name ‘Everglades’ refers to a swampy nature reserve in the southwest of the US state of Florida. Ford chose that name for this special Bronco for a reason, because the most notable modification is the ‘snorkel’ that is mounted to the right of the windscreen. This allows the Bronco to wade through deeper water. Where a normal Bronco can handle a depth of 85.1 centimeters, the Everglades can handle a depth of 92.4 centimeters. This is not only due to the snorkel, but also due to the increased ventilation of the front and rear axles, the differential and the transmission. You just get a little further into the swamp.

Ford Bronco Everglades

If you do get stuck, the Everglades has an integrated winch in the front bumper that can handle a weight of more than 4,500 kilos. Furthermore, the Bronco Everglades has unique front and rear fenders, a roof rack and a matte gray grille with the steel front bumper below. It rolls on 17-inch wheels with 35-inch all-terrain tires. To top it off, there’s an ‘Everglades’ decal on the front fenders.

Ford only supplies the Bronco Everglades in combination with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, which produces 300 hp and 440 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission. The Bronco Everglades costs $53,000 in America, or €46,578. For reference: a basic Bronco costs just over €25,000 converted.
