Two Ford Broncos Damaged In A Trailer Fire

Two new Ford Broncos suffer fire damage while in transport


  • The fire was not caused by the Bronco.

  • Source story says the transport truck is at fault.

  • Despite the damage, the Bronco still looks good.


The all-new 2021 Ford Bronco is one of the most anticipated vehicles of the year. Ford is well aware of the hype surrounding their latest SUV as reservations fill up fast. Holders have until March 19th to complete their order for delivery starting this summer. Unfortunately, two examples of the Bronco got cooked.

The source for the images, the bronco6g forums, indicates that the fire did not occur as a result of the Broncos themselves but because of some form of equipment failure. According to the post in the forums, the truck driver run with a flat tire or had braking issues when the trailer caught fire.

The Broncos were being transported in an enclosed trailer from the Reliable Carrier company when these images were taken at a truck stop in Greenville, IL. Despite the damage, the two Broncos look generally good. With the exception of the red unit’s front fender flares, most other aspects remain intact.

There’s no way this very minor incident will be a setback for Ford’s plans of unleashing this truck.
