Welcome Back Bronco
Christmas came early this week for many SUV fans as Ford reintroduces the 2021 Bronco back into the market. It has been 25 years, and to be honest, I do not know much about Fords or anything about the Bronco previously. I do, however, have to admit, it looks pretty badass. Because of the hype, I decided to check out some pictures and read up on it. Growing up, I have always been a fan of the Jeep Wrangler but never pulled the trigger on purchasing one for myself. Now, if you know me, I like fast, sporty, two-door cars. My current vehicle is the first four-door car I’ve ever owned, but it does look sporty. A Wrangler (or maybe now the Bronco) would be a cool addition as a second car for myself (or anyone really) if I were ever to have two vehicles. After looking at some of the pictures and reading the specs, I was impressed with the new Bronco. I am a huge outdoors type person – I love being outside in nature, the beach, taking walks, going on hikes, and simply being outside. I am not a camper, but this car is perfect for that outdoors type. Let’s do a rundown on some of the features, shall we?
The Sasquatch Package – great name by the way – comes with 35-inch tires with 17-inch bead-lock-capable wheels, front and rear locking differentials, etc. This is for all you off-roaders since I personally do not understand what any of that means. Or perhaps you’re out camping or tailgating, and ‘oh no!’ no one brought a table. No worries, Ford has got you covered. It offers a slide-out table, floodlights, and a bottle opener in the back. Also, if you are a camper, it does have a built-in tent feature.
You can choose between a two-door or a four-door vehicle. And in case you forget what kind of car you’re driving or have amnesia, the word “Bronco” will be emblazoned everywhere on the vehicle itself. Similar to the Wrangler, you can also remove the doors and the roof for that beautiful fresh air, which is probably my favorite feature on both the Wrangler and the Bronco.
Ford is also releasing a Bronco Sport. Same family, but slightly different features. The Bronco is more on a truck platform while the Sport is on a car or crossover type structure. It will run on a four-cylinder engine and will give you a smoother ride over its cousin.
Okay, so if you haven’t looked it up yet, you’re probably wondering about pricing. The Bronco ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 – depending on the model and options you choose. There are seven options for you to choose from, starting from the base model all the way up to the limited First Edition. The Sport will be about $28,000 - $40,000. The Sport is expected to begin arriving in dealers by the end of the year while the Bronco will arrive spring of 2021.
Dealers started taking $100 refundable deposits on Monday night, so if you were thinking about getting one, now would be the time to get on the list. It looks like the Bronco will be the next biggest hit, and if this car is up your alley, I would get a move on.
