2021 Ford Bronco Release Date

After the initial Ford Bronco reveal, we hoped to see the new model in 2019, then we hoped to see it early in 2020, but that didn't happen. The automaker still had some changes to make, and finally debuted the 2021 Ford Bronco to the world in Summer 2020 on July 13th. The new 4-Door/2-Door Ford Bronco should release for sale in early 2021.

2021 Ford Bronco Price

Now that the 2021 Ford Bronco has finally debuted, all of the pricing information has been revealed. For the Base trim, the new Bronco has a starting price of $28,500. Of course, this will depend on whether you choose a 2021 Ford Bronco 4 door or look at the two-door variant instead. A 4-Door Bronco is about $2,000 more than the 2-Door at every trim level. The highest Bronco trim, the First Edition model (only 3,500 were produced and reservations were full within the first 12hrs from launch), starts at $59,305.

2021 Ford Bronco Changes

The Ford Bronco was a very popular model back in the 1990s, but it disappeared and hasn't returned since. During its reign, the Bronco came with 3 powertrain options and measured 183 inches long. The new Ford Bronco has 2 engines and 2 transmissions. The 2-Door Bronco is shorter by about nine inches, while the 4-Door Bronco will be longer, adding about six inches to the body. Both the 2-Door and 4-Door 2021 Bronco will be about the same width as the old Bronco, but not as tall. Exterior dimensions of the new 2-Door Bronco measure 173.7" L x 86.2" W (with mirrors) x 71.9" H, while the exterior dimensions of the new 4-Door Bronco measure 189.4" L x 86.2" W (with mirrors) x 73" H.

2021 Ford Bronco Exterior

At first, it was difficult to tell what the 2021 Ford Bronco would actually look like. During testing, we were able to see large 35-inch off-road tires, which has made its way to production. There are a total of 9 different wheels available from 16-18" with polished steel, carbonized aluminum, and forged aluminum options. The 2021 2-Door Bronco has a wheelbase of 100.4" while the wheel base is 116.1" on the 4-Door Bronco. On the outside, you will find easy-to-remove doors and rooftops, as well as a nifty roof-rack to store key storage items for any off-road adventure. All new Ford Broncos have standard singular exhaust pipes.

New Ford Bronco Patents

The automaker filed many patents in 2020 for the 2021 Ford Bronco, further showing the versatility this SUV has. While not all of the patents will turn into actual products or features, it's still fun to look at the unique side mirrors, removable roll cage and the removable door patents.

2021 Ford Bronco Engines & Performance

Initially, it was released that the 2021 Ford Bronco would come complete with the same engine/platform that we saw on the 2020 Ranger pickup. That turned out to be true. The 2021 Ford Bronco comes with a standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 paired to either a 10-speed automatic or 7-speed manual transmission. We hoped that Ford would offer a manual option, and our wishes have been granted. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine is optional and only comes paired to the 10-speed automatic. 4x4 is standard across the entire 2021 Bronco lineup.

The cabin of the new Bronco has high-quality materials, unique Bronco accents/stitches, and a special Bronco load-up animation screen. 2021 Ford Bronco interior features include manual, single-zone climate control, remote key-less access, push-button start, six beverage holders, sliding vanity mirrors, convenient media bin with the center console, dual smart charging USB ports in the front/back, and overhead console map lights.

2021 Ford Bronco Technology & Amenities

All Ford SUVs come with a long list of standard features and the new Ford Bronco won't be left out. By following the same pattern, we can expect the 2021 Ford Bronco to have parking sensors, a rearview camera, connectivity equipment, USB ports, a sound system and an infotainment system. It's even safe to assume that it will come with Ford CoPilot360. The Bronco goes even further and adds technology specifically for the off-road. Located on the center dashboard, you'll find the off-road hero switch pack. These switches help you stay in complete control during any off-road adventure. With just the push of a button, you can activate Trail Turn Assist, stability control, hazard lights, stabilizer bar disconnect, and the front/rear differential lock. 

Finally, the new Bronco introduces the Terrain Management System (TMS) with 5 G.O.A.T. (Goes-Over-Any-Type-of-Terrain) modes. 5 drive modes come standard while there are up to 8 different drive modes available across all Bronc trims. These G.O.A.T. drive modes include the standard Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal modes, plus the additional Mud/Ruts, Rock Crawl, and Baja modes.The Bronco Badlands trim adds the Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl modes while replacing the Sport mode with Baja.
