You have seen the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco, but perhaps, you have no clue as to what it can be used for, well, other than the obvious (as a dope daily driver). Fret not. Celebrating Ford Bronco’s 55 years anniversary, Ford Motor Company shows you five adventure-inspired concepts based on the new Bronco, to highlight the model’s flexibility in customization to suit your need.
In addition to the standard options, the new 2- and 4-door Bronco has over 200 available factory-backed accessories, and more than 100 accessories for Bronco Sport models.
The myriad of add-ons allow you to turn the Bronco into a 4-door Outer Banks Fishing Guide to support professional fishing guide, a 2-door Trail Rig to performance as a hardcore trail rider, a Bronco Sport Trail Rig for off-road trekking in a compact but rugged 4×4, Bronco Sport TOW RZR for off-roading with more towing and cargo capacities, and Bronco Sport Off-Roadeo Adventure Patrol designed for the upcoming Bronco Off-Roadeo customer adventure playgrounds.
Here are the details of each concept, straight from the horse’s mouth:
• Bronco Four-Door Outer Banks Fishing Guide: Purpose-built to support a professional fishing guide along Cape Hatteras National Seashore, this lifestyle concept is based off the regionally inspired four-door Bronco Outer Banks™ series. On top is a Bestop® Sunrider® first-row soft top, factory-style concept roof rails and crossbars, and a Yakima® LockNLoad™ Platform roof rack. The SUV makes use of fender-mounted trail sights to fit a custom-made fishing pole and seat perch to wait for the perfect catch. A Ford Performance modular front bumper and safari bar help push through rugged terrain, while a slide-out tailgate provides a great work surface when repairing fishing rods or stringing up new lures. All-weather floor mats and splash guards round out the package. • Bronco Two-Door Trail Rig: Designed to be the ultimate hardcore trail rider, this custom build is based on the two-door Badlands™ series. It begins with a Ford Performance modular front bumper, tube doors, beadlock-capable wheels and 40-inch RIGID® LED light bar. A Ford Performance by WARN® winch helps rescue your lesser-equipped 4x4 friends. On top, factory roof rails are augmented with a Yakima Platform roof rack system with mounts for a shovel, and Ford Performance by WARN recovery kit and recovery boards. Inside are rugged floor mats and a rear swing-gate-mounted table. • Bronco Sport Trail Rig: For adventurers looking to elevate their off-road trekking in a small, rugged 4x4, the Bronco Sport Trail Rig amps up the Badlands series model by adding 31-inch BFGoodrich™ Mud-Terrain T/A® KM3 tires, a one-inch lift kit, plus Ford Performance by RIGID LED off-road lights mounted to a front nudge bar. On top, a Yakima LockNLoad Platform roof rack and off-road gear mounts are designed to carry gear like a high-lift jack kit, Ford Performance recovery boards and jerry cans. • Bronco Sport TOW RZR: TOW RZR matches the added passenger comfort and technology features of the Badlands series with towing and cargo accessories to help adventurers haul more outdoor gear. The custom build adds Yakima HD Bar crossbars and OffGrid medium cargo basket and Class II Trailer Tow Package with 2,200 pounds of capacity to tow off-road runners like the all-new Polaris® RZR XP Turbo™, unveiled today as part of the Bronco birthday celebration. • Bronco Sport Off-Roadeo Adventure Patrol: Designed for the upcoming Bronco Off-Roadeo customer adventure playgrounds, this Bronco Sport Badlands build is equipped to assist in the wild with its Yakima LockNLoad Cargo Platform to hold recovery gear like a high-lift jack, recovery boards and jerry cans. A Ford Performance by RIGID off-road LED light bar also mounts to the rack system. To support one of many Off-Roadeo excursions available, this Bronco Sport is equipped with the interior bike rack from Yakima to hold two mountain bikes. And to record customers’ adventures, it integrates a target to land the drone that will be used on-trail at Off-Roadeo locations.
Ford Bronco reboot is a much anticipated one. Not surprisingly, the demand has been rather positive with Ford reporting reservations exceeding 165,000 for the 2- and 4-door models in a matter of three weeks.
