The wait is almost over. Absent from Ford’s lineup since 1996, the iconic Bronco returns for 2021 with more charisma, convenience and capability than ever before. Built to handle the toughest terrain Canada has to offer, the new Bronco also bristles with 21st-century technology, making it equally at home whether rock-crawling or commuting. Scheduled for production early in the Summer of 2021, reservations for the Bronco can now be made for $100. Avoid disappointment; sign up early.
The Bronco phenomenon began in 1966, and it’s easy to see clues of that first-generation DNA carried forward in the all-new Bronco’s broad-shouldered, sharply chiseled design. The look is burly and functional, and easily tailored to the specific tastes of every adventure seeker.
Whether you prefer a classic 2-door Bronco or one in a first-ever 4-door configuration, the choice is yours. Either version brings a variety of quickly removable roof options, along with class-exclusive frameless doors, making them easy to lift off for the ultimate open-air experience. Exclusive cowl-mounted mirrors maintain sideview visibility when the doors are removed.
The modern cabin blends tough and rugged materials in neutral palettes with a multifunction LCD instrument panel and 8- or 12-inch SYNC touch screens, with unique available trailmapping and 360-degree camera systems.
As the flagship of Ford’s new family of rugged off-road vehicles, the Bronco is based on a fully boxed, high-strength steel chassis pairing independent front suspension with a robust, coilsprung solid rear axle. On the powertrain menu are two available turbocharged engines, 10-speed automatic or segment-exclusive 7-speed manual transmissions, and the choice of two different 4-wheel-drive systems.
With adventure in mind, the Bronco’s long-travel suspension can be optioned with up to 35-inch off-road tires from the factory, for best-in-class 11.6-inch ground clearance and 33.5-inch water-fording capabilities. Go anywhere, indeed.
At the heart of Bronco’s off-road prowess is its exclusive Terrain Management System with up to seven driver-selectable modes, including: Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, Sand, Baja, Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl.
An available ‘Trail Toolbox’ technology package even includes cruise control for low-speed trail driving, one-pedal acceleration/braking control, and torque vectoring to tighten off-road turning radius. Up front, a hydraulic stabilizer-bar disconnect system can be had for maximum suspension articulation. Serious stuff for the serious off-roader.
