Ford Bronco has made a comeback into the market after 25 years, and the hype is definitely worth it. A few tweaks, of course, were expected, so the new Bronco is available in two variants – the standard two-door option and a new four-door version. If you are a fan of off-roading and would want a competitive alternative to Jeep Wrangler, Bronco might just fit the bill. Here’s a quick overview of what’s under the hood, exteriors, and interiors.
Under the hood
To take the off-roading experience to the next level, Ford has given Bronco 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which makes 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. There is also an option of 2.7-liter turbo V6 engine, which produces 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft torque. Unfortunately, there is no V-8 variant for this one. It features 10-speed automatic transmission, while you can also consider the nostalgic seven-speed manual transmission for the lower variant. The model also gets the brand’s much-talked-about Terrain Management System. If you check for 2021 Ford Bronco reviews, you will realize that most users and reviewers have raved about both variants equally.
Ford definitely wanted to retain the retro look and feel of the OG Bronco, and that’s quite evident. There are a lot of modern touches to the design too. As we mentioned, there are two variants, and you get 11.6-inch ground clearance – easily the best in this category. What’s also impressive is a set of 35-inch all-terrain tires. The 3-section roof of the two-door variant can be removed, while for the four-door variant features a 4-section roof. The exterior design has focus on off-roading for sure, but this is also a car that’s designed for safety.
While it seems that Ford hasn’t done much for the interiors, but you get all the advanced tech you expect for long journeys. The floors are rubberized, while the dashboard is smart and offers all the info you need. The brand has claimed that the LCD instrument panel for the new models have been inspired from the original. You can also choose to go for the ‘12-inch touchscreen’ option. Place your smartphone or GoPro on the deck and document your journeys like never before. Not to forget, the performance app from Ford is incredible as always.
