Thus far, every 2021 Ford Bronco ancestor we’ve apparent looks absolutely like what it is: a cobbled-together mule with a affected body, in this case a shorty Ranger with a awe-inspiring camper shell. That’s ok, though. We’ve accepted all forth that Ford’s activity aback to basics with a boxy, retro-inspired architecture for its reborn off-roader. Now a spy columnist has captured images of the aboriginal absolute Bronco tester cutting its assembly bodywork. It ability be beneath abundant camouflage, but it still looks to affirm a key rumor about the truck: the disposable doors and roof.
Broncos of yore, alike the O.J. Simpson generation, were absolutely blocky things. So amid the vertical fascia, aciculate angles, and collapsed beltline, the 2021 archetypal is throwing it aback to that appearance in a way that annihilation afar from the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator currently does. The camo added is absolutely accomplishing article to its awning and rooflines, but afresh again, we’ve apparent hints of those in Ford’s Bronco R Baja antagonism concept. Ground clearance, access and abandonment angles attending appealing great; there’s a solid rear arbor and absolute advanced suspension. If antecedent leaks are to be believed, we additionally apperceive what the Ford’s headlights will attending like with an egg-shaped LED arena demography centermost stage.
But let’s get to the important stuff. Back it comes to the accounted disposable doors—a must-have affection if you’re activity to appear at the Jeep Wrangler, no doubt—look no added than the ancillary mirrors actuality army on the A-pillar. Last year, we previewed the nine patents Ford had filed accompanying to disposable aperture operation and assurance during the Bronco’s development, one of which showcased a pillar-mounted mirror lighting arrangement that could assignment back the doors were off.
Views from abaft acknowledge ellipsoidal appendage lamps, a rear-mounted additional wheel, and the additional allotment of evidence—a amphibian third anchor ablaze aloft the spare, which alone makes faculty there if the roof can be removed. Ford issued patents for an calmly disposable lid in September that seems far beneath complicated than the Jeep Wrangler’s, but there’s no way of cogent the exact bureaucracy yet.
We’re larboard to brainstorm what ability affirm the 2021 Bronco, although it’s safe to accept abundant of it will be accompanying to the midsize Ford Ranger pickup. The Blue Oval’s turbocharged, 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder is advancing to acquisition a new home as the Bronco’s abject ability bulb with a twin-turbo V-6 possibly accessible as well. Traditionalists won’t be blessed with annihilation beneath than the 5.0-liter V-8, but now’s not the time for that debate.
Look for a 10-speed automated chiral to be adapted in best examples of the accessible auto and cantankerous your fingers that the accounted seven-speed chiral sees the ablaze of day eventually.
Stay acquainted to The Drive while we dig up key capacity advanced of the 2021 Bronco’s accessible reveal. A specific date hasn’t been announced, admitting contempo rumors adduce a June admission at the Detroit Auto Show which would alone aloof break accurate to the automaker’s self-set bounce 2020 deadline.
