See the 2021 Ford Bronco in action

While we are still all waiting to see the new Ford for real, the automaker has released a video showing the 2021 Ford Bronco in action. It’s a prototype version so may differ from the release but the main characteristics are there for all to see.

I don’t know anyone who isn’t greatly anticipating the 2021 Ford Bronco. Even people like me who aren’t real fans of trucks. I think the new Ford small truck could be a genuine game changer that offers a viable middle ground between a truck like the F-150 and a crossover with a little heritage thrown in for good measure.

Here’s the video:

As you can see, the prototype is heavily camouflaged so we don’t get to see much about the design but the general size and shape is clear.

We also get to see how capable this version of the Bronco is off road. While the video editing means some movements look a little unnatural, the truck does seem to cope with the rough stuff very well indeed. While the majority of these trucks will never see rocks or a dirt road, it’s nice to know the capability is there if you need it.

2021 Ford Bronco

After the original Bronco stopped production back in 1996, there has been a gap in the market for just this kind of vehicle. Something capable, able to off road in comfort and be your daily driver without you having to be a ‘truck guy/girl/person’.

We don’t know much for definite as yet but we do know a few things. Thanks to some leaks, that Baja 1000 model shown last year and a whole lot of speculation, we have some ideas of what to expect.

We know the Bronco is based on the Ranger platform which has already proven its worth. We know it is likely to use the same engine and drivetrain as the Ranger, which has also proven its worth.

That engine is a 2.3-litre turbocharged four cylinder that generates 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque in the Ranger. The Bronco will likely have a manual and 10 speed automatic transmission and AWD as an option. It will also probably come as a hybrid or PHEV at some point in the future.

It is also expected to be available as a two and four door version and early reports did hint at removable doors and roof to take on the Wrangler. We know roughly what it will look like but there is more speculation than fact around that until Ford unveil it in the spring.
