The 2021 Ford Bronco is finally here after a lot of waiting and what seemed to be endless renderings and guessing. But now, we can finally settle our eyes onto the all new off-roader, and boy is it a looker. In fact, this could be one of the only cars to look better than the fan renderings, and there were some good ones out there.
But come on, the numbers.
The model starts at just below $30,000 and gives you 270hp from an inline-four. Add a little more to the bill and you gain access to a 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 with 310hp. And while it’s available with an auto at the moment, a 7-speed manual is on its way.
There are three main models of the Bronco, with the Bronco name becoming a sub-brand of Ford from now on. There’s a Sport, which comes with either a 1.5-litre EcoBoost, with minuscule 181hp, and a larger 2.0-litre that gives you the a more impressive 245hp. This starts at $28,295.
A full-size Bronco will come in either a 2 or 4-door design for a price of $29,995 and $34,695 respectively. This is the only model that will be offered with a manual, while the Sport comes solely with an 8-speed auto.
Obviously, few people will use the Bronco anywhere but the road on the way to work, so it’s packed full of the usual technology we see in most modern cars. But Ford is keen to add a sense of nostalgia to the car, so has added a few fun bits and pieces, like a bottle opener at the rear. Oh, and it can be cleaned out with a hose, according to Ford, the roof can come off, and the doors can be specced to have holes in for, I don’t know, off road vibes?
Whatever your flavour, the Bronco has it all, and we expect it to sell extremely well because of that. Plus, it just looks so damn good!
