The arrival of the 2021 Ford Bronco near Prineville OR marks a serious commitment from Ford to return to the off-road SUV market. At TS&S Ford, we're making a commitment to bring the Bronco to you.

         

Bringing the Bronco back is also a revival of one of the brand's most well-known models, at least for truck enthusiasts. Ford pulled the plug on the Bronco after the 1996 model year to focus on more family-focused SUVs like the Explorer. Unlike Chevrolet, which similarly brought its popular Blazer SUV name out of retirement last year only to apply it to a crossover SUV, Ford is keeping the Bronco's rugged truck-based heritage intact. The 2021 Bronco is slated to arrive in the first half of 2021.

Based on details that Ford has released to dealers, the reincarnated version will have a boxy shape with retro styling. It'll be available with two or four removable doors, and a removable roof that sets it up to compete with rugged opposition like the Jeep Wrangler. The fact that the 2021 Ford Bronco near Prineville OR won't be getting a V-8 might upset traditionalists, but the turbocharged 4-cylinder and twin-turbo V-6 should provide more than enough pep. Of course, the new Bronco will also have a plethora of off-road hardware that will ensure it doesn't veer too far from its roots. While we excitedly anticipate the official reveal of the 2021 Bronco, here's what we know so far.

Ford is bringing back the Bronco nameplate for 2021, and it's supposed to follow the old-school vibe and off-road pedigree of its iconic predecessors. Although there have been lots of rumors and almost as many spy photos, we won't have all the details until Ford officially pulls the cover off at the Bronco's debut, which will be livestreamed over the Internet on July 9, 2020.


2021 Ford Bronco near Prineville OR: New Details

So far, the company has not indicated how much the Bronco will cost or what trim levels will complete the lineup. Since we know it'll be available with two or four doors, have removable roof panels, and offer multiple powertrains, it's likely to have a wide range of prices just like the Jeep Wrangler lineup. We also think the 2021 Ford Bronco near Prineville OR starting price will be slightly higher than the Jeep's, which starts at around $30,000, because even the base model should come with more standard features than the Jeep.

Prototype testing of the Bronco has been spied, which gave some clues about its wheelbase, tires, and suspension. But so far, most information is just speculation. We do know it will share a platform with the next-generation Ford Ranger pickup truck. We know it'll get the turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder from the current Ford Ranger as well as the twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 that's available on the Ford F-150. The Bronco could get a seven-speed manual transmission with a "crawler" gear for off-roading, as well. Ford has confirmed that the Bronco will eventually offer a hybrid powertrain, too.

Other than the removable doors and roof, the interior of the 2021 Ford Bronco near Prineville OR is probably the most unknown aspect of the vehicle. Since its retro exterior will take design cues from past generations, there's a chance those particulars could extend inside as well. According to a Ford engineer, the Bronco's interior will have extra durable parts, including waterproof components for sensitive electronics like those that control the seat adjustments. Spy photos have also shown some clues. In addition to a large central touchscreen, there's a set of toggle switches for auxiliary equipment above the rearview mirror and a rotary knob for selecting drive modes behind the gear selector.

Ford's latest in-dash Sync4 software will power the large touchscreen which is set in the middle of the Bronco's dashboard. This arrangement allows for over-the-air (OTA) updates and can connect wirelessly to the cloud and the user's Smartphone. The infotainment system will also likely support a host of modern infotainment features that include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot. There will likely be optional upgrades such as built-in navigation and a more powerful audio system, as well.

The 2021 Ford Bronco near Prineville OR has yet to be tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Although Ford hasn't stated which driver-assistance technology will be standard, expect features such as lane-keeping assist, automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and more to be offered.
