Notably, the four-door is equipped with a factory-installed snorkel-type air intake on the passenger side A-pillar that keeps it clear of water, mud and dust. A removable panel allows it to be configured with either a front or rear opening, depending on the conditions.

The Everglades has 35-inch tires and a roof rack.

Pricing for the Everglades starts at $54,495 and sales are scheduled to begin this summer with five colors available including Eruption Green, Area 51, Shadow Black and Cactus Gray and a model-exclusive Desert Sand, which seems a little incongruous for a semi-amphibious truck. Unfortunately, ordering is only open for existing Bronco reservation holders for now and with the Bronco’s entry-level 300 hp 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
