Way back in 1966, Ford introduced its original SUV and cut a trail to the great outdoors that would be followed by generations of Americans. And now, Bronco is coming back, strapped with thrilling power and go-anywhere capability, uniquely equipped to carry true adventure seekers deep into the wild and untamed places their souls long to be.


Classic Design

The new Bronco ranks among the most capable and rugged 4X4 families in the industry. Highlighting the original's timeless and functional design-signature round headlamps, horizontal cartridge grille and short overhangs with vertical and clean flat body sides, the new Bronco is built for thrills and adventure.

Legendary Performance

Torture tested at the home of King of the Hammers in the Johnson Valley desert and the grueling Baja 1000, one of the world's toughest off-road endurance races, the Bronco family is ready to take on anything the wild has to offer.

Untamed Spirit

Easily taking off the roof panels and doors on the 2- and 4-door models lets you experience the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. The Bronco was built wild for an open sky view to bring back the feeling of unlimited freedom to your journey into the wild.

Model Options:

The Ford Bronco was an American institution, available from 1965-1996. Now, after 25 years, it's back! The 2021 Ford Bronco takes many styling cues from the first-generation Bronco, but it's now a mid-size SUV for the first time and comes in two-door and four-door variants.

Let's look at the sixth-generation Ford Bronco trims and what each of them brings to the table.

2021 Ford Bronco base model

The Bronco is a highly capable off-roader, with four-wheel drive and an electronic two-speed low-ratio transfer case. The base engine is a 2.3 liter EcoBoost turbocharged inline-four with a seven-speed manual transmission, but you can upgrade to a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 and a 10-speed automatic transmission. It has cloth seats, an eight-inch touch screen, and comes in seven choices of color.

2021 Ford Bronco Big Bend

The Big Bend adds a driving mode and upgrades the 16-inch steel wheels to 17-inch aluminum. You get LED fog lamps, a carbonized gray grille, and three more exterior color choices. Inside, there's a leather-wrapped steering wheel and privacy glass. 

2021 Ford Bronco Black Diamond

The Black Diamond Ford Bronco includes a more significant jump in off-road hardware. The front and rear bumpers are stronger and you get rock rails and bash plated underneath. The number of driving modes is bumped to seven and your 17-inch black wheels are now wrapped in 260/70 all-terrain tires. Seats are now vinyl and the floor is rubberized for easier cleaning. With the Black Diamond and above, you get no less than 100 exterior color choices including Cyber Orange Metallic.

2021 Ford Bronco Outer Banks

If you're looking for a touch more luxury, the Outer Banks trim is the ticket. Think of it as the alternative to the Jeep Wrangler Sahara. It has LED lighting, heated front-row bucket seats, dual-zone climate control, remote start, and active safety features. The Outer Banks has 18-inch wheels in 255/70 all-terrain tires.

You have the option of choosing the High package on the Outer Banks trim and above. Among other things, this adds a 12-inch touchscreen. 

2021 Ford Bronco WildTrak

If you plan on heading into the desert, the WildTrak is king. It's distinguishable by its hard blacktop. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 and 10-speed transmission are now included as standard, and you get whopping 35-inch mud-terrain tires, Bilstein dampers, locking front and rear axles, fender flares, a high-clearance suspension, and an advanced four-wheel-drive system with a 3.06:1 low ratio.

Despite its rocking off-road chops, the WildTrak maintains many of the luxury features of the Outer Banks, and you have the option of leather seats.

2021 Ford Bronco Badlands

Comparable to the Jeep Rubicon, the Badlands has a special suspension with a hydraulic front sway-bar disconnect. It sits on 17-inch aluminum wheels sporting all-terrain 33-inch tires. 

If you add the Sasquatch package that includes most of the WildTrak's best off-road features, the Badlands is the finest off-road Bronco you can buy.

2021 Bronco First Edition

Finally, it's worth mentioning the Bronco First Edition. There will be only 3,500 of the limited-edition Bronco produced, and it costs over two times as much as the base model, but it's tricked out with everything you get in the top-of-the-line Badlands plus everything from the Sasquatch package and the Lux package. This includes a 10-speaker B&O stereo system, adaptive cruise control, and voice-activated touchscreen navigation.

It's great to see the Ford Bronco return to shake up the mid-range SUV market, and we're excited to see it out tackling the most difficult off-road terrain in the country.

Ford Bronco: A Wild History

While the 2021 Bronco makes for one thrilling adventure partner, this isn't its first rodeo. In 1966, this new breed of off-road vehicle stampeded onto the scene and into wild hearts everywhere, setting the mold for the modern SUV.

Fifty years ago, the Ford Bronco was driven to an overall victory in the grueling 1969 Mexican 1000 - a feat that no other 4x4 has been able to duplicate. To honor their remarkable win, the Ford Bronco will once again return to the desert to test an all-new Bronco R racing prototype in the punishing 2019 Baja 1000.
