When’s the last time a Ford Bronco got this much attention?

Engineered with smart off-road technology, the 4×4 Ford Bronco is back in the news with a family of rugged SUVs. The vehicle’s production is scheduled for take-off in early 2021 while delivery to dealerships is expected next spring.

In a press release issued by the automaker, Jim Farley, Ford’s chief operating officer, said the company created the Bronco family to elevate every aspect of off-road adventure by equipping them with class-leading chassis hardware and exclusive technologies to raise the bar and take people further into the wild.

“They’re built with the toughness of an F-Series truck and performance spirit of a Mustang – and come wrapped in one of the most stunning and functional off-road designs that’s true to the original Bronco DNA,” he said.

The line will also feature the classic two-door and a first-ever four-door design. Additionally, new Bronco owners can choose from an extensive lineup of more than 200 factory-backed accessories for maximum personalization, enabling dealers to provide outfitting-on-demand for each customer’s individual adventure needs.

There are two 4×4 systems offered on all Bronco models, a base setup and an advanced 4×4. The base system utilizes a two-speed electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case, while the optional advanced system features a two-speed electro-mechanical transfer case that adds an auto mode for on-demand engagement to select between 2H and 4H.

“Bronco’s advanced four-wheel-drive technology is at the core of its off-road capabilities,” Mark Gruber said, Ford’s Bronco consumer marketing manager.

“At the heart of it all is Bronco’s exclusive Terrain Management System,” he continued.

The new line’s off-road capabilities include an 11.6-inch ground clearance, maximum 29-degree breakover angle, 37.2-degree departure angle, and water fording capability of up to 33.5 inches. The Bronco’s off-road prowess is also reinforced by exposed tow hooks in the front and rear and available modular steel bumpers with an integrated winch mount.
