The right SUV is ready for anything. Whether it’s running errands, heading home from work during a storm, or going on an off-road adventure, your ride should be able to handle it all. So, which model is right for you?
To help drivers in Huntsville, Birmingham, and Chattanooga decide, the team at Harbin Ford Scottsboro looks at what two heavy hitters have to offer: the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport vs. Toyota RAV4. Let’s find out more.
When you’re in the market for an SUV like the Ford Bronco Sport or the Toyota RAV4, power is obviously on your mind. While both models have a lot to offer, only one will keep up with all your adventures. Let’s find out which one is destined to be your on- and off-road companion.
The 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is built to go anywhere. It has a standard 4x4 system and can also adjust to current driving conditions with the Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. Modes™. This system provides up to seven selectable drive modes to choose from, including:
- Rock Crawl
You won’t find standard 4-wheel drive in the Toyota RAV4. While it does offer selectable driving modes, you’ll only have four options to choose from.
The Bronco Sport is also prepared to power through the elements. Its available 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 engine offers up to 250 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.
Let’s kick it over to the competition to see how it stacks up! Unfortunately, right off the bat, you won’t have as much power under the hood since the motor of the RAV4 tops out at 203 horsepower.
When you’re driving around town, having a spacious cabin interior is a must. SUVs are known for their comfortable interiors, but you may also be interested in how big their trunks are. Let’s find out what kind of equipment you can bring along with the Ford Bronco or the Toyota RAV4.
The 2022 Ford Bronco and the Toyota RAV4 can both carry a lot of cargo. Each SUV features a large trunk and 60/40 split-folding rear seats that allow you to load even more when needed.
When it comes to measurements, they offer similar amounts of storage space with more than 55 cubic feet to work with.
The Ford features more ways to stash all your essentials, though. For example, you can store valuables or extra supplies in an under-seat storage compartment, zippered seatback pockets, or with the MOLLE Straps System. A flip-up rear window allows you to quickly grab something from the trunk, slide in additional cargo, or load longer items like kayak paddles.
The Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, doesn’t offer any comparable storage features to these, so you may not be able to organize your gear as easily.
Whether you’re driving to work alone or bringing along the whole family on a day trip, connectivity and access to entertainment is a must. After taking a vote for which album to play first, you can easily queue up the playlist to make everyone happy.
Both SUVs enable you to stay connected wherever you go. A Wi-Fi hotspot is included in the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport and the Toyota RAV4 to help you and your adventure companions stay connected no matter where you roam.
Both models also feature user-friendly infotainment systems that include smartphone compatibility, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
The Ford’s SYNC® 3 system features an 8-inch touchscreen on the dashboard, while the Toyota comes with a 7-inch touchscreen. That extra visibility of the Bronco Sport will come in handy when you’re driving down trails and dirt roads.
With a more capable drivetrain, unique storage features, and a larger touchscreen display, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport is the clear choice for adventure seekers in Huntsville, Birmingham, and Chattanooga. Visit Harbin Ford Scottsboro to learn more about the Bronco Sport and take a test drive.
