What You Have to Get From 2021 Ford Bronco
The 2021 Ford Bronco family is what ford is essentially replacing those cars with now the original bronco was built off of the ford f-series platform. This new one is actually built off of a modified version of the ford ranger it’s actually built at the same Michigan assembly line and ford says this should underpin the next generation ranger. And maybe even another larger SUV vehicle.
It’s been specifically tuned to be born wild or built while is what ford calls it because this is a sturdy truck-based off-road capable machine. That will go head-to-head of course with the current generation JL wrangler which has been a huge hit for FCA.
It’s no surprise that ford is looking to get in on that sales pie now just like the wrangler ford will offer the 2021 Ford Bronco in two different sizes. There’s the two-door version of course and you can remove the doors and the roof on this vehicle. The four-door version about 16 inches differentiates the two versions in overall length and wheelbase the two-door will stretch at around 173 inches long. Overall while the four-door is around 189 inches long those numbers are right on top of the jeep wrangler.
The jeep wrangler unlimited the roof and the doors are removable on certain trims while the four-door models allow you to store the doors. The roof in the cargo area with a custom bag ford offers a choice of either a soft or a hard top. However, if you guys go for the four-door model a hard top and a soft top is available. If you guys don’t want to have to choose between both Fords also says that these doors and the top are easier to remove versus the wrangler.
If you guys get the inside money now of course having a modern take. You’re going to find a massive available 12-inch sync 4 infotainment system with over-the-air updates. It’ll of course include things like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Although ford didn’t mention if it’ll be wireless, we believe wireless CarPlay is coming for forwards in the sync 4 feature.

This is the same engine that we find of course in the ford ranger and the bronco ford says it should make around 270 horsepower and around 310 pound-feet of torque. That torque ford says is the most powerful torque rating for a four-cylinder engine in the segment which really. The segment is only the jeep uh wrangler right now an optional engine will be the 2.7-liter EcoBoost twin turbocharged V6.
This engine it powers a lot of other ford models ford says it’ll make around 310 horsepower in the bronco and 400 pound-feet of torque. That torque number is very nice especially when you compare it to the engines in the wrangler only the eco diesel offers more torque versus the broncos top 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine.
Ford also says there’ll be a choice of two different transmission a seven-speed manual. That’s right a segment exclusive seven speed manual transmission with a dedicated crawl gear ratio. That’s a first for the segment or if you guys don’t want to shift it yourself a 10-speed automatic will also be the optional transmission ford did not say whether both engines were awful will offer both of these transmissions.
