The 2021 Ford Bronco has been spied again, in a two-door version this time.
Photographers of Car and Driver caught a camouflaged prototype wading through the snow. It looks similar to a four-door version, but has just two doors instead.
Good few is known about the revived Ford Bronco, but the intrigue persists. Its distinctive features will be a removable roof and repackable airbags, as well as an optional specific navigation system generating digital ‘breadcrumbs’.
The body-on-frame model is designed on the Ford Ranger Raptor’s platform. It receives an off-road pack putting it on a par with the Jeep Wrangler, which the Bronco will compete with.
As for the powertrains, expect a base 2.3-liter turbo inline-4 and an optional bi-turbo 2.7-liter V6 mated with a 10-speed automatic gearbox which Ford made in co-development with General Motors. A hybrid powertrain, a manual transmission could be on offer too.
The original Ford Bronco was in production from 1966 to 1996. The upcoming SUV will be the sixth-generation model.
As the company promises, the 2021 Ford Bronco will premiere in spring 2020. The North American International Auto Show in Detroit (June 7-20, 2020) will most likely be the place of its official public debut.
Ford will produce the vehicles for the American market at the new plant in Michigan.
