Fox Dampers are now available on the 2022 Ford Bronco Wildtrak.
2022 Ford Bronco Wildtrak Overview
With the new Ranger Raptor announced yesterday, Ford’s Raptor lineup is suddenly very packed, and Raptor-specific equipment is filtering down into the mainstream lineup.
For example, for the 2022 model year, the Bronco Wildtrak, formerly the factory’s most off-road-ready Bronco, will be offered with a new HOSS 3.0 (High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension) package that features Fox internal-bypass dampers.
Here are the major highlights of the 2022 Ford Bronco Wildtrak:
- The Bronco Wildtrak will get a HOSS 3.0 suspension package incorporating Fox 2.5 dampers.
- It costs an additional $2505 and is only available to reservation and order holders with unplanned build dates.
- A front bumper with tow hooks and integrated fog lights is also included in the package.
Design & Aesthetics
Unlike the Bronco Raptor, which employs Fox adaptive dampers with a 3.1-inch diameter, the Bronco Wildtrak uses 2.5-inch units, which are also used on the new Ranger Raptor.
These dampers are designed for high-speed off-roading and are expected to last longer than the average Wildtrak model’s Bilstein dampers, included with the Sasquatch package.
In addition, the Bronco Wildtrak has 35-inch all-terrain tires instead of the Raptor’s usual 37s.
The HOSS 3.0 package adds the Bronco Raptor steering rack, adapted from the F-150 Raptors, and stronger inner and outer tie rods to Wildtrak versions with the HOSS 3.0 package.
A rear stabilizer bar is also included in the package.
In addition, tow hooks and fog lights are hidden below a powder-coated front bumper, and steel skid plates provide further protection.
Price & Variants
The HOSS 3.0 upgrade for the Bronco Wildtrak is only available to the reservation and unplanned order holders, and units with this feature are expected to arrive this summer.
It costs $2505 on top of Wildtrak’s initial price of $49,275 and is available on both two- and four-door variants.
