2021 Ford Bronco finally revealed

2021 Ford Bronco finally revealed

After what seems like forever, Ford has finally launched the 2021 Ford Bronco. It’s a well-designed SUV with a superb balance of modernity and heritage and a very nice profile.

Released last week, the 2021 Ford Bronco is a body-on-frame SUV based on the Ranger platform. It’s a great looking vehicle with some nice touches.

Bucking trends

Apparently, when planning the original 1966 Bronco, Ford interviewed Jeep owners to find out what they didn’t like about it and what they thought could be improved. Ford then took that information and used it when designing the original Bronco.

Word has it that Ford did the same thing with the 2021 Bronco.

The 2021 Ford Bronco has a modular design and will come in two or four door guise. You can remove the doors and roof with basic tools and a few minutes of your time. The doors can be stored inside the SUV if required too.

New old design

The look manages to be both modern and heritage with a respectful nod to the original. It’s a boxy design with rounded edges and a very attractive front end. Those round lights are cute while the big grille and Bronco badge leave no illusions about what this SUV is.

An upright windshield, flat roof, flat panels and high ride height hint at practicality and off road ability. Especially with those short overhangs at each end.

Inside, the design is likely to be practical rather than luxurious but with a balance similar to the Ranger.

Under the hood

The 2021 Ford Bronco will be powered by a 2.3-litre EcoBoost four cylinder engine that generates 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque or a 2.7-litre V6 that generates 310 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Both will use either a seven speed manual or 10 speed automatic transmission.

The Bronco will be available in base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak, and Badlands trim levels.

There will be the option for two transfer cases, automatic 4x4, electronic locking differentials, 35 inch tires, Dana axles, The  G.O.A.T. system with selectable drive modes including Baja drive mode and Trail Control mode, Ford Sync 4 and more. Ford says there will be over 200 options and accessories at launch.

Safety will be handled by automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, active lane control, blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts and automatic high beams.

The 2021 Ford Bronco looks to be the ultimate smaller SUV. From the design, specs, engines and options, it looks like Ford has thought long and hard about what to offer and has delivered it in a very attractive package.

As long as the Bronco performs as well as it looks, this thing is going to fly out of dealerships when launched in spring next year!
