The New 2021 Ford Bronco Is an Off-Road Masterpiece

Patience is a virtue, but it’s damn hard. After nearly 25 years of waiting, the iconic Ford Bronco is back and it’s big, bad, and ready to take on the world. As it finally reenters the off-road SUV market, Ford has a stable of new features for the resurrected icon.

Three powerful models

Built for outdoor enthusiasts, the 2021 Bronco lineup will take you to wherever the wilderness calls. The lineup includes the Bronco in two- and four-door models and the Bronco Sport. The 2021 Bronco is reminiscent of its predecessors and feature round headlights, a single-piece front grille, one-piece tail lamps, and a contrast-colored roof.

The vehicle is based on a truck platform and has a 2.3-liter turbo inline-four engine. The new Bronco has peaked front fenders, also called trail sights, which help drivers see the corners of the car. The sights also double as a tie or mounting space for devices like your Go-Pro. The rear window opens independently of the tailgate so you have easy access to the back.

The Bronco Sport is smaller and comes with less powerful four-cylinder engines. It may be smaller, but the Sport model has plenty of cool features unique to itself. It has flood lamps that will light up the ground up to 129 square feet when the liftgate is open. The Sport also features a five-way configurable cargo management system, where you can slide out a working table. There’s also a bottle opener in case you forget to pack one.

Tough and thoughtful design

Ford wanted to maximize interior space so you can carry more gear for the boundless adventures you’d have. After all, storage is key when you’re on an off-road adventure. The new Bronco features plenty of clever storage solutions. Firstly, the light-alloy doors themselves have a quick-release function so they can easily be removed and stored onboard.

The modular, three-section roof in the two- and four-door hardtop models can also be taken off easily. Another available option is a soft top. The cargo area offers plenty of space, with room for two full-size mountain bikes. 

The design team gave careful consideration for the Bronco’s interior. The vehicle will likely take a beating if used to its full potential as an off-road SUV. The car has silicone-covered switches on the dash that are waterproof, which will protect the electronics inside.

The flooring is rubberized with drains and optional drain plugs, which makes it easy to clean your Bronco after a long day out. There are also additional options like marine-grade vinyl seats that are mildew and UV-resistant. 

The Bronco looks to be a worthy competitor to the Jeep Wrangler. Its “Sasquatch package” that’s loaded with off-road equipment can very much dethrone the iconic Wrangler. The package includes 35-inch tires with 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels, front and rear locking differentials, and other features.

The 2021 Bronco starts at $29,995. Top-end models with additional features and equipment are priced at more than $60,000. Buy Here
