The 2021 Ford Bronco has been officially teased in new renderings issued by Ford Motor Company today!
The boxy silhouette of the next Bronco is shown underneath a mud-splashed cover of what appears to be a 2-door version with a rear-mounted spare tire.
Our photographers have caught what could be the very first shots of an early mule using a Ford Everest body to test the upcoming 2021 Ford Bronco!
An article from Gearpatrol purports to reveal some new Ford Bronco details directly from a Ford Engineer familiar with the development of the 2020/2021 Bronco. Here’s the summary of the claimed details:
By popular demand, following all the positive feedback from our first 2020 Ford Bronco concept renderings we are excited to share our rendition of a 4-door version of our Bronco rendering to show off the front/rear view and a peek at the expected new “Air Roof” feature.
In their newly posted article, Automotive News reports that Ford plans to offer a full line of accessories and modifications for the Bronco, many of which are expected to be pre-installed at the dealership. These will presumably be offered by Ford Performance Parts, the in-house tuning and performance parts arm of Ford.
This comes as no surprise as would takes a page straight out of Jeep’s strategy of offering a full lineup of Mopar parts and accessories for the Wrangler, which Jeep dealers certainly like to load up on their inventoried Wranglers.
We all think the Ford Bronco is badass. And Popular Mechanics has put together an article on what makes the Ford Bronco so badass. If you’re an aficionado of Bronco history, this one will delight you.
We especially like the article’s closing statement from Ford’s VP of design Moray Callum (who also owns a 1976 Bronco): “There’s a lot of interest inside the company for Bronco, and the pent-up demand is certainly there,” says Callum. “We better not screw it up.”
We hope these words prove prophetic.
The 2019 Ford Ranger has just been spied for the first time right in Ford’s backyard on the streets of Dearborn, a big first step towards the repatriation of the midsize pickup truck and along with it, the revival of the Ford Bronco nameplate.
Watch out Jeep Wrangler, the 2021 Ford Bronco will feature sold axles! Supplier Dana has revealed (via Automotive News) that it’s working on the driveline for the new Ford Bronco and that both the Bronco (and Ranger) will have “front and rear axles featuring our latest AdvanTEK gear technology.” That means solid axle for both front and rear!
Dana also makes the solid axles for the Jeep Wrangler, and here’s the kicker — the Bronco’s solid axles will also be made in the same new plant in Toledo, Ohio that will begin making axles for the next generation Wrangler (JL) later this year.
This news just made our wait for the true off-road capable new Ford Bronco that much harder!
The auto industry has been abuzz over the Ford Bronco return ever since it was officially announced at the 2017 NAIAS and little morsels of information continue to be given in interviews with Ford higher ups.
