2021 Ford Bronco
It's probably the most anticipated vehicle of the year. The Ford Bronco is reborn after several years of absence, and it promises to be more efficient than ever. The modern silhouette and exceptional off-road capabilities of the vehicle will bring it back to the legendary status it has acquired over the years.
The Legend is Reborn
The new Ford Bronco obviously benefits from all the latest technological developments. And the versions offered, with two or four doors (a first in model history), will make it possible to reach all enthusiasts who want a different and spectacular vehicle.
Physically, the new Bronco is inspired by its predecessor by taking sharp angles at the four corners of the body. While the oval headlights with symmetrical lines shine proudly on each Bronco 2021, Ford has designed a plethora of front grille options, some of which are inspired by past Broncos while others are decidedly modern.
The hood is distinguished by easily identifiable folds and hooks with multiple roles, including serving as a benchmark for the driver and facilitating off-road traffic in tighter areas. The whole overcomes oversized wheel arches, which can, at the buyer's choice, house wheels up to 35 inches directly from the manufacturer.
Get Up Close to the Great Outdoors
We can't talk about Bronco without talking about the removable doors and roof. These can even be stored behind the rear seats in individual carrying cases. And among the 200 or so accessories available in the dealer catalogue, let us mention the presence of a transparent door, completing the look of the Bronco.
The roof can be removed in sections, allowing sunlight to pass through the front seats or the entire cabin. There is also no transverse suspended upright, which means that the experience is total, like a traditional convertible.
Under the Hood
While the Bronco has a fabulous look and unique off-road capabilities, it also offers two powerful engines. A first, 4-cylinder 2.3-litre shared with the Ford Ranger, develops 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. It can, as desired, be combined with a 10-speed automatic gearbox or a 7-speed manual version.
A 2.7-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque is only available in conjunction with the automatic transmission. Lockable front and rear differentials and a solid Dana 44 rear axle complete the vehicle's layout.
To ensure greater efficiency, the Ford Bronco is equipped with a selector of driving modes specific to the terrain, ridiculously called G.O.A.T. Despite the funny name, which means Go Over Any Terrain, the modes adjust the transmission behaviour to operate at its peak under various conditions like Baja, Slippery and Sand, Mud / Ruts and Rock Crawl.
Finally, the new SYNC4 infotainment system is even more useful by displaying 360-degree views of the camera system, providing information on off-road telemetry and displaying expertly developed off-road maps from the maps. AccuTerra of NeoTreks, Trails Offroad trail guides and FunTreks trail guides. It is capable of live updates (OTA), which can be installed at the most convenient time, such as at night when the Bronco is parked.
The list of technical characteristics of the Ford Bronco is still long. Now we just have to get behind the wheel.
