Ford Bronco Riptide Concept Showcases Topless Bronco and Accessories

Ford once again showcasing Bronco customisation

  • No top for Bronco? No problem

  • Concept gets marine-grade seats, washout floor, and tube doors

 


Ford is showing off another Bronco custom build meant to show off what you can do with your own Ford off-roader, at least once they start getting into customer hands. It’s called the Ford Bronco Riptide, meant to take you on a surfing adventure and solving the problem that Ford is having with Bronco removable tops because it never rains in California.

“For this Bronco Riptide project, we imagined a customer who enjoys the open air and a free-spirited West Coast lifestyle,” said Missy Coolsaet, Bronco color and materials designer. “We wanted the vehicle to demonstrate how Bronco customers can personalize their vehicle, letting different types of customers visualize what they might want to do with their future Bronco.”

It’s based on the Four-Door Sasquatch package Bronco with 35-inch tires on 17-inch wheels. Ford drops the top and picks Velocity Blue paint that is meant to look like the ocean. The doors are replaced with tubular accessory parts to keep you safely inside but to let in as much salty air as possible.

The black and gray seat fabric is a marine-grade vinyl and the floor is rubberized to wash out, meaning that you’ll probably never need to put the roof on even if things do get damp.

More Ford accessories include A Bestop mesh Bimini top, Yakima bike rack with bikes, and a Rigid LED light bar. A prototype steel front bumper helps complete the look. Lastly are the two Almond surfboards fixed to the roof. They’re mounted on prototype crossbars to show how overhead racks can be mounted without messing with the soft tops.
