If you’re looking for a rugged and capable sport utility vehicle (SUV) that’s stylish, high performing, and capable, the 2022 Chevy Blazer and 2022 Ford Bronco are both great options. Discovering the differences between these two vehicles can help you find the SUV that’s perfect for you and your driving needs. Here, we’ll analyze some of the top features of these two vehicles so you can find the right vehicle for your budget and lifestyle.
For ultimate performance, the Ford Bronco helps you navigate rugged terrain and off-road conditions with impressive towing capability. The Blazer delivers a smooth and comfortable ride with advanced towing available on select models. The following details the features of each SUV:
Power and Towing
Both the Blazer and the Bronco deliver on performance and capability. Those wanting a slightly smoother ride can opt for the 2022 Blazer’s base-level, nine-speed automatic transmission or pay more for the 10-speed transmission on higher-level Bronco trims. Two engine options are available for the 2022 Blazer: a two-liter, four-cylinder engine or a 3.6-liter, six-cylinder one. Bronco drivers have three engine options: the base, a 2.3 liter, four-cylinder engine; a 2.7-liter V6, or a three-liter V6.
The Blazer and the Bronco can both tow up to 4,500 pounds if you opt for higher-level trims and trailer packages. The base trim on the 2022 Bronco offers an impressive 3,340 pounds of towing, whereas the base Blazer only delivers 1,500. Opt for the 3LT or Premier Blazer trims with special packages to get all-wheel-drive, the V6 engine, and the 4,500-pound maximum towing option. All in all, the power and performance of these SUVs is relatively comparable, but you’re looking at slightly more power in the standard Bronco.
The Bronco is built to take on the toughest terrain. Select models come with features, such as an air-intake snorkel. The Blazer is capable of some serious challenges with a terrain select system so you can choose your driver style to suit your driving needs.
Optimize seating and cargo space with the four-door Bronco. The following is a closer look at the interior features of these 2022 vehicles:
Seating and Space
The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer’s sleek and sporty exterior translates to a driver-centric and sporty interior. It offers seating for five. The second row folds down for increased cargo space so you can choose which seats to collapse for ultimate vehicle customization. Standard models offer 64.2 cubic feet of cargo volume, and sliding rear seats come standard. Additional features include an eight-inch, full-color touchscreen, up to six USB ports, and a locking glove box for added security.
In comparison, the 2022 Ford Bronco has versatile interior options with lots of room for customization. Two-door models offer seating for four, and four-door models provide seating for five. The interior of the Bronco prioritizes comfort and durability. With the top on the two-door model, you can access 99 cubic feet of cargo space. The four-door model delivers even more with 103.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the hardtop and 108.2 with the soft.
The Bronco’s cabin mimics the natural color palette of the outdoors, aiming to inspire drivers on their off-road adventures and escapades. Cabin materials are rugged and tough enough to withstand even the most challenging rides. Many color options give drivers ultimate customization potential. You can opt for cloth or vinyl seats depending on your durability needs. Smart features and gadgets keep you connected, and ultimate cargo room provides space for two to sleep comfortably in the back of the four-door vehicle with the seats folded down.
The interior of the Blazer emphasizes luxury and style over the Bronco’s durability and ruggedness. Drivers can opt for sleek interior options and advanced technologies to elevate their ride. Passenger comfort comes before cargo space, but you can still carry plenty with the 2022 Blazer.
Fuel economy on the Blazer is slightly higher than that on the Bronco. The 2022 Chevy Blazer uses 27 miles per gallon (MPG) on the highway and 19 in the city. The Bronco offers 20 MPG in the city and 22 on the highway. Tank size is also larger on the Blazer, meaning the SUV can take you further between fills. The size of the Blazer’s tank is 19.4 gallons, while the Bronco can hold 16.9 gallons of fuel.
Ford’s 2022 Bronco Everglades offers a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine to help you maximize the power and efficiency your vehicle delivers.
At the base level of each model, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the Ford Bronco is lower at $30,800. The Blazer starts at $41,100. Pricing depends on the models, trim levels, packages, and the available features you choose. This year, the Bronco comes in two 2022 special edition models: Bronco Raptor and Bronco Everglades. Both options emphasize off-road capability and adventure, promising a durable and capable ride and offering advanced features for even the most daring explorers.
