After covering almost a dozen of posts, the iconic and legendary, Ford Bronco is reborn to take a breath, but not in a very competitive segment. Ford Bronco has finally launched the Ford Bronco which we watched through its official launch.
Traditionally a two-door ladder-frame off off-roader, the latest-generation Bronco is also available as a four-door version, and both are based on the T6 platform that also underpins the current Ford Ranger and will rival straight against Jeep Wrangler.
Upon launch, the 2021 Ford Bronco will be offered in two petrol engine variants, an inline-4, and V6. The first is a 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbocharged unit that produces 270 hp and 420 Nm of torque, while the other is a 2.7 litre EcoBoost turbo producing 310 hp and 542 Nm of torque. The engine gets pairing with A Getrag seven-speed manual gearbox for a 2.3-litre engine, while a 10-speed automatic transmission is comfortably compatible with both variants.
Remember the removable door patents that we covered, and Ford Brocnoc flaunts it out to the world. Both 2-door and 4-door variants have seven level trims, the base variant, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak, Badlands, and the limited-run First Edition. All Bronco variants come with removable doors, and the cowl-mounted mirrors ensure rearward visibility is retained when the doors are removed. For the four-door models, all four doors can be stowed away in the Bronco in protective door bags.
The starting price of the 2021 Ford Bronco has been set at US$29,995 (RM128,093) for a 2-door variant, while US$34,695 (RM148,165) for the four-door variant.
