There is a high interest in the 2021 Ford Bronco, but details about the iconic SUV are not leaking. Every now and then, we can hear new rumors. With an army of fans waiting for the vehicle to come back for the first time after 1996, there are a lot of speculations without valid sources. The official info is the SUV is coming back as a 2020 model. We could see the new Bronco covered with a blanket. Also, there was a big logo available at one conference. Finally, the most Ford gives is a chassis of Baby Bronco off-road model.
Bronco was an iconic two-door SUV. However, the chase of OJ Simpson caught a bad reputation and the company had to discontinue it. Now, the former NFL star is free again, and so we can say for the 2021 Ford Bronco. But, the two-door SUVs are in the past now. The new model is getting a four-door layout. Still, some rumors are mentioning that Ford is considering an old-school design for a limited edition.
More rumors are mentioning a seven-seater SUV and a pickup truck. The thing is – none of these speculations are based on the official sources. It is the imagination and wish of fans waiting for the new Ford vehicle. Still, some of them will come true, we are sure about it.
2021 Ford Bronco 4-door vs 2-door
If you plan off-road adventures, then a 2-door is a better choice because of the shorter wheelbase, better agility, and higher gravity center. But, the 2021 Ford Bronco 2-door is going to be a special model, which looks the same as a 4-door version but without direct entrance to the rear seats. You know what kind of troubles that means for loading stuff and accessing the cabin.
Recently, we could hear that the new 2021 Ford Bronco is getting a special version, and that is not one of the trims you would expect from the Blue Oval company. It is not Raptor, diesel, or a 2-door model. It is a so-called Redback. This package could be found in Australia, where Ford Ranger is one of the most popular trucks for the outskirts. A special exhaust system is an aftermarket upgrade, and the carmaker is ready to adopt this technology for its new SUV. Well, at this point, we believe only Aussie fans are getting such an edition since it doesn’t mean anything to US fans.
Will There be 2021 Ford Bronco Raptor?
You can seriously doubt in this. But, on the other hand – shy not? This is the most attractive version of the F-150 truck. There are premium models, but no other trim gets so much attention thanks to its aggressive appearance and superb outputs. Well, for the 2021 Ford Bronco Raptor, the company will have to adapt the existing package.
Fans of the SUV will get its monster, and the carmaker is signing up for a battle against the Toyota 4Runner. The Japanese SUV is the most popular off-roader in this segment. The base version is not so stunning, but the performance of the TRD Pro model is impressive. Now, Toyota is alarmed and the development of the new 4Runner started. The next-gen model is coming out in 2022.
2021 Ford Bronco Release Date
Like most other things about the 2021 Ford Bronco, the release date is not available yet. The price as well, and the styling. We also want to know which engines the SUV is about to use. Ok, a V6 is certain. But, the company made a shocking move by adding a turbocharged four-pot to F-150’s lineup. Raptor is using a V6 engine, as well as the full-size Expedition SUV. So, everything is possible with the Blue Oval company. All we can do is wait. The comeback was announced five years ago and the delay can’t be an option. There are no excuses since the carmaker had five years to produce the new SUV.
Ford is probably waiting for some of the largest car shows in the US. The first one that approaches is Los Angeles. We don’t hear anything about the Bronco’s debut there. But, fans will listen to news from this show eagerly. The next destination could be NY or less-likely Chicago. Finally, don’t be surprised if Ford leaves its biggest premiere in the last few years for the largest motor show in North Amerieca. The new format of Detroit Auto Show changed the dates and now the spectacle is moved for summer. In this case, sales of the new 2021 Ford Bronco will start immediately after the NAIAS 2020.
The new 2021 Ford Bronco is finally coming, that is for sure. Most other details are speculations and we expect from the US carmaker to unveil pieces of information before the grand premiere.
