The Ford Bronco 4600 Race Truck

The Ford Bronco 4600 Race Truck

As if the Ford Bronco didn’t give us enough reasons to want one, the Ford Bronco 4600 Race Truck comes along. The truck was launched after the announcement of the Ultra4 4400 class trucks that already had us salivating.

The Ford Bronco 4600 is designed to compete in the Ultra4 stock class and should make its debt at the Baja 1000 later in 2021.

Ultra truck

Let’s be honest, the Ford Bronco 4600 looks good! It also looks like the truck we already know and can buy. It has the familiar front end with Bronco along the centre, the founded lights and the characteristic blocky exterior.

You know it’s a Bronco from the first glance, even if you don’t read the name.

Sure, it doesn’t have an enclosed cabin and it sits much higher off the ground. It’s also in a race-ready spec with big wheels and tires, but it still looks like a Bronco.

I think that similarity is one of the reasons we like it so much.

Ford Bronco 4600

The Ford Bronco 4600 uses the two door Sasquatch model with a few upgrades.

Those include Fox shocks, High-Performance off road stability suspension, Triton Engineering control arms, Howe steering rack, 35-inch BFGoodrich mud-terrain T/A KM3 tires, heavy-duty portal hubs by 74 Weld, Triton Engineering rear links, Dynatrac ProRock XD60 rear axle, Spidertrax rear shafts, Wilwood brakes, a Dana AdvanTEK electronic differential with custom half-shafts and Method race wheels with beadlock.

You also get a custom roll cage from Geiser Brothers and a pair of Recaro bucket seats with racing harness.

The paint job is also a winner. Ford says it is to honour the 1969 Baja-1000 winning Ford Bronco. We like it a lot!

As well as the familiar profile, the Ford Bronco 4600 also uses the familiar engine. The 2.7-litre V6 has made it across to the race model but has been tweaked to deliver 310 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.

It also uses Ford’s 10 speed automatic transmission.

Bronco time

The three Ultra4 4400 trucks certainly look the business but we much prefer the comfortable familiarity of this model. It’s less out there and more accessible. It’s not difficult to believe that the stock Bronco we could buy at Northway Ford could look and feel like this one.

Sure, this isn’t road legal and won’t protect you from the Canadian winter but you would sure have fun on the weekends!

If that wasn’t enough, Ford also hinted that the Ford Bronco 4600 was going to be used as a test vehicle for Ford Performance parts that you will be able to buy at a later date.

If that isn’t reason enough to buy a Ford Bronco, we don’t know what is!

Check out the new Bronco at Northway Ford Lincoln, 388 King George Road Brantford ON N3S 3N2.
