Yes, the 4-Door Bronco has been seen in uncovered leaks (here and here), but the preproduction models have resumed testing and we just caught the upcoming four-door 2021 Bronco model undergoing testing without its roof camo.

Though prior leaks have shown the vehicle with no camo, those models have all worn roof racks. This model, on the other hand, seems to have a bare roof.

The trim level we see here seems to be the middle-of-the-range model, slotting below the offroad-focused model yet above the base models we have photographed prior.

interesting....

notice the lights, only the top half is on?

the lower control arms are very horizontal, which bodes well for down travel as compared to most stock IFS.

It does appear to be a bit lacking in ground clearance as compared to a JLU Sport however.

Nice shots.

Belt line is definitely a little higher than I'd like - you can really see in these shots that it wouldn't be too comfortable to hang your arm out the window. That's a shame but also not something I expect from any new vehicles these days.

Happy to see things happening!

Typical of reflector headlights in low-beam. Could be dual bulb with split housings.

You know - I wonder if the trailing link and rear shocks are so low to make more room inside for a rear footwell and to let the rear seats fold down flat.

hmm, that is possible on the footwell. The 4runner has a fold flat third row option, and that is also a competitor in this market space, so hopefully that is an offering. Granted, I imagine most of the time my rear seat will be removed.

Still love how this thing is coming, and this is probably just nit picking, but does it seem odd for a 2021, brand new vehicle, to have a traditional antenna still? Maybe its a removable top issue and there's no where else to mount a modern shark fin antenna on the roof? Love seeing the progress though!

I'd have to go back and look at other leaks but it couuuld be for telemetry since it looks they're on a handling course?

Seems to be a Ford thing. The upcoming next gen F-150 still has them too, even though there's GPS antennas on the roof now. -

Any thoughts if the doors have window frames? The rear door has an elevated triangle, which I assume is part of the door, and probably the window does not roll down further than that (due to wheelwell interference).

And then on the front, the window looks several inches forward of the actual door opening. Hard to tell if the doors have frames or not around the windows.

I was thinking the same thing. God I love the Bronco, always have. But more and more some of these stupid little things piss me off. If I wanted big fender flares, I'd buy a Jeep. If I wanted a swing gate I'd buy a Jeep. Guess what? I don't WANT a Jeep. Ford shouldn't have put anything on the new Bronco that says Jeep!!

Thanks "Doug"!!!!

Roofline looks great w/o the heavy camo.

I personally took the old school antenna off my truck, hit every single tree branch it saw & since I use the satellite radio I didn't even bother w/ a stubby. The car wash always freaks out thinking they lost my antenna :ROFLMAO:
