Ford Bronco was one of the most anticipated launches in the global automotive market last year. The upcoming launch of this vehicle will mark the return of the Bronco nameplate after 24 years since the discontinuation back in 1996. Before calling it quits, the Bronco had been on sale for over 3 decades. Back then, the Bronco was a star in the off-road world. On returning to the market last year, the new Bronco was promised to inherit the spirit of the iconic 1966 truck.
Ford Bronco will return to the market this year
In Ford’s words, the new Bronco will offer “toughness of an F-Series and the spirit of a Mustang.” This description suggests the position of the new Bronco on Ford’s portfolio. Apparently, the new Bronco will target at the off-road enthusiasts with its toughness and off-road appeal. However, just like the Ford Mustang that exists separately from the high-performance Shelby Mustang, the Ford Bronco is also offered as a milder version of the aggressive Ford Raptor pick-up. The price of the Bronco is also more affordable than the Raptor.
2021 Ford Bronco Exterior
Looking from the outside, the new Ford Bronco will retain the original design of the old Bronco. Ford Bronco’s clean and aggressive design will offer a fresh choice for the customers apart from the familiar boxy and sleek design of the Jeep Wrangler and Mercedes Benz G-Wagen. With a strong focus on the practicality, the Bronco does not come with decorative or unnecessary elements. It even steps up the game to hide even the necessary parts like door hinges or door frame.
Ford Bronco will come into versions, a four-door and a two-door version.
Ford Bronco also takes on some design clues from its legendary predecessor, for example, flared hood panels or the round headlight, unique grille styling, all of which contribute to the retro styling of the Bronco. When constructing the new Bronco, Ford has left a large room for customization and aftermarket addition with a lot of removable and modifiable parts. For example, to the side, the Ford Bronco will come with removable doors which are very easy to take off. With the removable doors, the Ford Bronco can offer an airy space and maximum exposure to the sun and the wind.
Along with the removable doors, Ford also offers a removable roof as well. On the two-door version, the Ford Bronco will come with hard-top with three-piece design as standard. On the other hand, the Ford Bronco four-door gets a soft roof as the standard offer and the hard roof comes as optional with four-piece design.
2021 Ford Bronco will come with a range of colour options as follow:
2021 Ford Bronco Interior
The new Bronco has not only the removable exterior parts like door or roof but also a host of removable interior details, which offers a high level of customization and personalization. It will be no surprise that the after-market providers will have a lot to offer for the off-road Ford Bronco. Every detachable part of the interior will be signified by the usage of Bronco-stamped bolts. It is easy to tell that the interior design of the Ford Bronzo is paying homage to the original design with its heavily retro-inspired styling.
On the inside, the Ford Bronco features build-in device rack which allows the car users to mount their phones camera or GPS devices. It also comes with a 12-volt power outlet to charge phones or cameras. Other functional elements of the interior of the Ford Bronco includes the marine-grade vinyl upholstery and drain plugs. Especially with the drain plug, you will not have to worry about a sudden rain when the roof is off or going off-road through a flooded area.
