Well, the 2021 Ford Bronco is finally here. After years of concepts, rumours, leaks, and delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Ford Bronco is back. Let’s get right to it.

The Ford Bronco isn’t just a new model, it’s actually a new family of models that includes the Ford Bronco Two-Door, Four-Door, and Sport. It’s also an exclusively 4×4 lineup and it’s designed to go anywhere. It’s a direct Jeep Wrangler competitor and as such aims to go where and beyond the Wrangler goes.

The 2021 Ford Bronco will offer two Ecoboost engines, with a 2.3-litre four-cylinder being standard with an expected 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Ford hasn’t confirmed the numbers but says it should be close to that.

Next up will be a 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 with 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Again, these are expected numbers.

All 2021 Bronco models will come with 4×4 standard, but there will two variations. The first is the base 4×4 system which uses a two-speed electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case. The optional advanced 4×4 system has an auto mode which means it can shift between 2WD and 4WD modes on-demand.

A Dana 44 AdvanTEK solid rear axle and Dana independent front differential receive the engine’s power.

A Terrain Management System with what Ford calls G.O.A.T. modes offers Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, Sand, Baja, Mud/Ruts, and Rock Crawl driving modes.

Ford’s new Trail Control off-road low-speed cruise control system will be offered as well as Trail Turn Assist which uses torque vectoring to reduce the turning radius in tight spots are also included.

2021 Ford Bronco Colors And Trims Overview

The Bronco offers the highest ground clearance in its class at 11.6 inches. Breakover angles and departure angles are rated at 29 degrees and 37.2 degrees respectively.

“Bronco two- and four-door models leverage the company’s Built Ford Tough durability and performance testing and take it even further off-road with Built Wild Extreme Durability Testing in the harshest possible environments, including the brutal trails of the King of the Hammers off-road competition,” according to Dave Pericak, director Ford enterprise product line management, Icons.

7-Speed Manual Gearbox

The 2021 Ford Bronco will feature a 7-speed manual gearbox that pairs with the advanced 4×4 system featuring on-demand engagement. This leads to a 94.75:1 crawler-gear ratio which is tops in the class. A 10-speed automatic will also be offered.

The Ford Bronco Two-Door will come with a standard three-section removable roof system. The Four-Door models will have a four-section removable top. Ford says that one person is enough to remove the top sections which latch in place and the rear quarter panels can be removed using a “snap, push, and lift away” system. Four-Door Bronco models will get a cloth soft top standard.

The frameless doors are also easy to take off according to Ford, and they can be stored onboard with protective door bags.

Interior Technology

The 2021 Ford Bronco will feature an available 12-inch centre display with SYNC 4 technology that offers over-the-air updates like in the upcoming 2021 Ford F-150 and Ford Mustang Mach-E.

A 360-degree camera system is offered as well as an off-road spotter system which provides additional views to improve visibility off the beaten path.

The SYNC 4 system will include a trail mapping feature that can function even when off the grid and can be included in the 12-inch screen or the 8-inch standard screen. There are hundreds of curated trail maps within, says Ford, and you can share your courses with other Bronco owners.

Integrated drains, vinyl seating surfaces, rubberized floors, and silicone rubber on the hero switches make washing down the Bronco after a day on the trails easier.

The 2021 Bronco gets Ford Co-Pilot360 advanced safety technology and side curtain airbags are integrated into the build-in roll cage.
