Ford finally took cover from the 2021 Bronco as an iconic foo-roader. The new Bronco will be produced as a 2-door and four-doos Sport models.
With a ground clearance of 294 mm, the 2021 Bronco has a capability of water fording by 851 mm which is the best in its class and proves that it is a true off-roader who wants to take the crown from the Jeep Wrangler.
The 2021 Bronco has a retro design looking back to the old classic model. The inspiration from the original Bronco continues inside the cabin as well. The cabin is waterproof with a waterproof floor with drain plugs, waterproof switches and waterproof upholstery.
One interesting feature inside the cabin is a rack on the top of the dashboard which allows the driver to mount devices like phones or cameras on it. Other feature inside the 2021 Bronco are 12inch touch screen, 360-degree camera for off-road and 8 driving modes include Normal, Eco, Sport, Baja, Mud/Ruts and RockCrawl.
Both two and four door Bronco models are uses a traditional body on frame structure made out of high strength steel. The suspension is also modified and offers the best in class suspension travel. As an option buyers can order locking differentials, long-travel Bilstein dampers and hydraulic stabilizer bar.
Unlike the Bronco Sports small engines, the Bronco uses a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with 270 hp and 420 nm of torque. The higher variants use a 2.7-liter V6 unit with 310 hp and 542 nm of torque.
Buyers also can choose a 7-speed manual transmission for the 2.3-liter version. There is a 10-speed automatic transmission that is also available as an option. There are also two options for the transfer case. One is a 2-speed electronic shift-on-fly and the other is 2-speed electromechanical with an auto 4H engagement.
The manual model with advanced 4×4 system has a best in class crawler gear ratio of 94.75:1. The Bronco also benefits a new Trial Control system which is a low-speed cruise control for off-roared. Other off-road focused techs include Trial Turn Assist and Trial one-Pedal Drive. The former can reduce the turning radius and the latter allows the driver to control the vehicle with only one pedal.
Like the Jeep Wrangler, Bronco doors can be easily removed and stored in special protective bags. The side mirrors are mounted on the A-pillar rather than doors so removing doors doesn't mean that you don't have any rear view.
The 2021 Ford Bronco will hit the market in both two and four door versions with hard top or soft top roof. The roof panels are also removable and ford claims that it can be done by one person.
