Hot on the heels of Ford’s Bronco Everglades teaser pix, we caught two wrap-covered prototypes on public roads, revealing the new Desert Sand paint color destined for the new special-edition model.
Our best real-world look at the Bronco Everglades gives us a great view of the new wheels, the new hue, bits of its front suspension and shocks, and the winch-and-snorkel set-up that defines the Everglades package. The front shocks resemble the H.O.S.S. air suspension available on the Bronco Badlands and First Edition models. We can’t say for sure if the Everglades is getting the same H.O.S.S. set-up, or if there is unique hardware in use, since the prototype’s shocks are covered with rectangular, right-angled covers, instead of the tubular, dual-chambered H.O.S.S. shocks. Perhaps there’s a bit of suspension camouflage in play, until the Everglades goes fully official with all of its specs.
The Everglades’ new Desert Sand paint can be seen peeking out from the camo wrap—primarily on the front fascia, windshield headliner, and on the rear corners around the tailgate and tail-lights. The new color is reminiscent of the desert tan color that was offered on the ‘80s Bronco.
