Key Differences Between the Ford Bronco and Ford Bronco Sport

2022 Ford Bronco | Roosevelt, UT

Ford offers up one of the best SUV lineups on the planet — especially if you want a capable off-roader for adventuring around Utah. Two of the very best are the new Bronco Sport and Bronco, which wear similar styles but have unique advantages worth considering. Let’s break down a few of the key differences between the 2022 Ford Bronco and the Bronco Sport.

Ford Bronco

  • More traditional styling. The Bronco looks more like a classic Bronco with its squared-off proportions and boxy silhouette
  • Different body styles. Ford offers the Bronco in two- and four-door models
  • Removable roof and doors. You can remove the roof and doors with little effort, and you can even swap in different styles including tube doors
  • More power. The Bronco is a more traditionally robust SUV with options up to and including a 400-horsepower-plus Bronco Raptor

Ford Bronco Sport

  • More modern styling. The Bronco Sport is a bit closer in size and shape to a crossover, offering spacious and family-friendly accommodations, but it still carries the look and feel of a Bronco
  • Unique features. With the Bronco Sport, you get a flip-up rear window that means it is easier to load in, a camp table option with the available Cargo Management System, and under-seat storage in the second row
  • Safari-style roof. While the roof isn’t removable, the Bronco Sport features a tall safari-style roof that allows for best-in-class second-row headroom and lets you store two bikes standing up in the cargo area
  • Balanced performance and efficiency. The two engine options for the Bronco Sport aren’t as powerful as what you get with its larger sibling, but they’re still plenty muscular while providing better fuel economy

And even with these differences between them, the 2022 Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport have a lot in common. Namely, standard 4×4 capabilities, the Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. Modes™, and tons of options for customization. Torn about whether the Bronco or Bronco Sport is right for you? Get in touch with the team at L&L Motor in Roosevelt, Utah, and we’ll make sure you get to try them both on for size.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Lineup | Roosevelt, UT

The first-ever F-150 Lightning just keeps getting better and better. And when it comes to key stats like horsepower and range, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is even better than we originally expected.

Ahead of the launch of production in April, Ford revealed that the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning with the extended-range battery will actually max out at 580 horsepower[1] and 320 miles of maximum range.[2] Those are up from original targets of 563 horses and 300 miles, respectively.

F-150 Lightning models with the standard-range battery also see a bump from 426 horsepower to 452. Both batteries allow the F-150 Lightning to deliver 775 lb-ft of torque, which is the most of any F-150 ever made.

In addition, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will see a jump in payload capabilities. A properly equipped F-150 Lightning will now top out at 2,235 pounds of maximum payload — up 235 pounds from the original estimate.

“We were seriously focused on raising the bar on this truck, including after we revealed it, so we can deliver more for our customers,” said Dapo Adewusi, F-150 Lightning vehicle engineering manager. “And our drive for continuous improvement will get a big boost when we start getting feedback and ideas from customers when they receive their Lightnings.”

Ford has already taken 200,000 reservations for the F-150 Lightning, and it’s only going to get more popular with the increases in horsepower and range. If you want to be one of the next to reserve an F-150 Lightning, reach out to the experts at L&L Motor in Roosevelt, Utah.

2022 Ford Bronco Everglades | Roosevelt, UT

The 2022 Ford Bronco just keeps getting better and better. Following the reveal of the 2022 Bronco Raptor, Ford is serving up another rugged variant of its award-winning SUV: the Everglades.

As the name implies, the 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades is made with plowing through marshes and moss in mind. In addition to the awesome Sasquatch™ Package, it gets a class-exclusive, Ford-designed snorkel with swappable air vents.

Unfortunately, unless you have an outstanding reservation for a Ford Bronco, the Everglades will be tough to come by for 2022. However, there’s not one version of the new Bronco that doesn’t absolutely rule — that’s why it was named the 2022 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™.

Ford F-150 Lightning Pro Power Onboard Lets You Recharge Other EVs in Utah | Roosevelt, UT

There’s so much to be excited about with the upcoming 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, the status quo-changing electric pickup truck that’s Built Ford Tough®. In addition to its impressive range, robust power, and winning style, the Ford F-150 has the ability to charge other EVs using Pro Power Onboard.

Pro Power Onboard, available on both the F-150 Lightning and the F-150 PowerBoost™ Hybrid, puts out up to 9.6 kilowatts of electric power. This can be used for everything from running portable air compressors to hooking up accessory lighting to running a television.

This also allows you — with the help of the Ford Mobile Power Cord and other optional equipment — to charge any electric vehicle with an SAE J1772 charge port.

That means that if you’re driving around Roosevelt or across Utah and happen across a fellow EV driver who’s stranded without power, you can lend a helping hand. Vehicle-to-vehicle charging with the F-150 Lightning and Pro Power Onboard allows you to add 20 miles of range to a Mustang Mach-E per charging hour. You can even recharge another Ford F-150 Lightning and add 13 miles of range per hour you’re plugged together. That could be enough to get the stranded car to a station in Utah where they can fully recharge.

Of course, the widening lineup of Ford electric vehicles works to ensure that you rarely find yourself in that situation. Not only do the F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E offer upwards of 300 miles of EPA-estimated range, they feature range-optimizing technologies like FordPass™ Power My Trip to help you access the Blue Oval™ Charge Network and its more than 19,500 charging stations.[1]
