The world is still buzzing about Blue Oval’s new SUV. The 2021 Ford Bronco is coming this spring and now is the time to write down everything we know about this iconic model. The introduction of the new all-electric models could steal the spotlight from any other model, but not from Bronco.
Many fans are convinced that the Bronco’s return will cause more splash than the introduction of the Mustang Mach-E model. That could be true, and we can’t wait to see the final product this Spring. Ford has made it clear we should have huge expectations from its new SUV. The timing of Bronco’s revival is perfect, mostly because older Broncos are getting very expensive for the collectors.
2021 Bronco Exterior Design
We’ve read so many speculations surrounding the design of the new 2021 Ford Bronco. So far, we know that this SUV will share underpinnings with the Ford Ranger pickup truck. That means new Bronco will arrive with a shorter wheelbase. A two-door variant is possible, like the one from the first-gen Bronco.
A pickup truck is a rumor for now, but this rumor makes perfect sense. Bronco’s biggest rival will be Jeep Wrangler. For that reason, Blue Oval will provide a removable roof and doors. Generally, Bronco will look upscale but expect very practical SUV that is also an off-road capable model.
Besides the removable roof and doors, the new 2021 Ford Bronco will offer a lot of interesting features. No one knows the complete list yet, but the highlight should be a manual transmission. Moreover, the dual-clutch gearbox is very likely, and it should be available in Bronco Hybrid version.
Yet, Ford didn’t confirm this information. The interior will be of the highest quality, so you can expect a lot of upscale materials. Still, the goal is to deliver a practical cabin with a lot of space inside. You can also bet on a generous cargo area and ample headroom.
Engine Specs, a Hybrid Powertrain is Definite
The upcoming 2021 Ford Bronco will be based on the Ford Ranger pickup truck. The two will share the same platform and possibly the engine as well. A 2.3-liter EcoBoost is the most likely candidate. This inline-four was also available in the Focus RS version. It makes 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, it comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission. However, a manual transmission will set Bronco and Ranger apart.
A 7-speed manual gearbox is a possible outcome, and it will be paired with an optional 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. This potent V6 powers the Edge ST SUV and it generates 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of twists. Moreover, the very same powertrain offers slightly lower figures in the F-150 truck. We won’t bother you with the hybrid version because we don’t know anything about it. As far as we’re concerned, Bronco Hybrid is definite.
2021 Ford Bronco Release Date and Pricing Details
Blue Oval announced Bronco’s arrival at the 2021 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. According to Detroit-based manufacturer, the new 2021 Ford Bronco will cost the same as the Jeep Wrangler. That means Ford’s newest SUV will start at $30,000. Moreover, Blue Oval also confirmed that they would release the new 2021 Bronco this Spring.
