In a news bound to bring smiles to automobile enthusiasts, Ford Bronco 4X4 has finally made its debut. It is one of the most-awaited models considering it disappeared for two decades and has made a comeback. The Ford Bronco is a range of SUV which was in production from 1965 to 1996. The 2021 Ford Bronco debuted alongside a new smaller Bronco Sport on Monday. As per the information disclosed by the American automaker, the SUV will go into production by early 2021. Deliveries to the customers will begin by early April 2021. Ford Bronco introductory price is $29,995, while it will rival Jeep Wrangler priced at $29,790.
Ford Bronco is packed with features like standard 4WD (four-wheel drive), removable door and roofs, rear-mounted spare tyre, and Ford Ranger inspired ladder frame. The 2021 Ford Bronco design pays homage to the first-generation Bronco which arrived in 1966, albeit with tons of 21st century technology. It sports round headlights connected by a horizontal grille decorated with a 'Bronco' badge. The SUV's design is a boxy one with an upright windshield, single twin tail lights, and spare tyre hanging out of the rear. The roof panels above the steel roll cage on the Ford Branco can be removed.
Ford Bronco comes with frameless doors so you can remove and store the protective bags in the car. If we talk about the tech features aboard the SUV, there is the Uconnect system and the latest SYNC 4 system. The system is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with over the air update option.
Under the hood, the Bronco comes with two Ecoboost engines - a 2.7-litre V6 and a 2.3-litre turbo-4. The V6 puts out 310 hp of maximum power and 542 Nm of peak torque. The 2.3-litre Turbo V4 delivers 270 hp of maximum power and 310 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines are paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission with an option of a seven-speed manual gearbox. The Ford Bronco is offered in six trims: Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak and Badlands. If you are looking for a luxury model, Outer Banks would be perfect. If you seek something for the rough terrains, Badlands is a muscular trim Ford Bronco.
Bookings for the 2021 Ford Bronco are currently open at Ford.com for a $100 deposit. It is one of the cult SUV models and will rival the popular Jeep Wrangler in the American as well as the international market.
