The Ford Bronco remains one of the most difficult to find vehicles around, months after its release. Though it doesn’t need any help generating demand for the rugged SUV, Ford just released an Everglades Special Edition model with unique features and improved off-road capability.

The Everglades is available as a four-door model, and comes with everything in the Sasquatch package plus a snorkel, winch, and more. Ford says the snorkel runs on the passenger-side A-pillar, and features an adjustable inlet to change the direction based on conditions. The intake also allows the Bronco to ford deeper water without fear of drowning the engine. Further bolstering the SUV’s aquatic abilities, both axles, the transfer case, and transmission all feature modified vents to increase fording depth. Together, the Bronco Everglades’ upgrades give it a water fording depth of 36.4 inches.
Using the Bronco’s modular design, the Everglades features a Ford Performance bumper with a Warn winch and modified fenders with squared wheel arches. The winch offers a 10,000-pound capacity and a 100-foot line to pull the SUV out of hairy situations, while the wheel arches are squared instead of rounded, and feature Everglades graphics.

The Bronco Everglades gets a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine making 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel drive, and a 67.1:1 crawl ratio. Ford says it will offer the Everglades in five colors: Model-exclusive Desert Sand, Eruption Green, Area 51, Shadow Black, and Cactus Gray.
Orders for the new Bronco Everglades open in March, but is reserved exclusively for existing reservation holders. Pricing starts at $54,495, including a $1,495 destination charge.
