2021 Ford Bronco Put To The Off-Road Test

Official reveal was postponed but, in the meantime, Ford wants you to know that the Bronco is ready for off-roading.

  • Video shows that the new Ford Bronco is ready to get dirty.

  • Still covered in camo, and now lots of mud.

The video shared on The Bronco Nation’s YouTube channel confirms with little doubt the all-new, immensely anticipated 2021 Ford Bronco will be more than capable enough to handle any and all off-roading adventures owners may want to take it on. Officially, the Bronco was supposed to break cover last March but we all know what happened there…

From all the spy shots and leaked images we’ve seen in the last year, few ever questioned whether or not the new Ford Bronco was to be a gifted off-roader. The short front and rear overhangs along with crucial approach and departure angles were always important clues. This video however shows that deep water, inclines, and lots of mud are no match for the Bronco’s 4WD system.

There are a few instances where we can see it as work. For one, you’ll probably have noticed a shot of the 5-door version attempting to make a left-hand turn – yes, the left rear wheel is locked. This is the system cutting power to the rear axle in order to send more juice upfront to make the turn. In another instance, we again see the 5-door climbing up a sharp incline although the editing cuts before it makes it to the top. Let’s remember that the Bronco is a “street” vehicle first which means its tires are probably road-biased or slightly compromised. We think that a proper set of off-road tires or boggers will make the Bronco into a serious threat to the Jeep Wrangler.

The 2021 Ford Bronco should be shown to the public later this year and hit the road in early 2021.
