8 Excellent Features on the All-New Ford Bronco
The incredible Ford Bronco has traveled through 50 years of history and over thousands of miles of uncharted terrain to arrive back to the top off the off-road automotive mountain. Earlier this month, the 2021 Ford Bronco family was revealed to the world via a national television broadcast that aired across networks like ABC, ESPN, and National Geographic.
Now that the Bronco is back in the flesh (or steel), it’s easy to see that the original sports utility vehicle’s rich rugged heritage is still on full display. That said, just because the all-new Bronco celebrates it’s history, doesn’t mean it’s not packed to the removable roof panels with one-of-a-kind, never-before-seen, off-roading technology.
Check out these eight unique features on Ford’s fortunate son courtesy of Winner Ford.
This first entry might be simple, but it shouldn’t go underappreciated. Not only does the all-new Ford Bronco still have its traditional swing-out tailgate door adorned with an iconic spare tire mount, but it also doubles as a slide-out tray that can be used as a convenient camping table or road-side seat.
Imagine setting up your deep woods campsite, building a fire, and using your Bronco’s convenient pull-out tailgate as a table for your hot dogs, smores ingredients, and refreshing beverages.
Afterward, pull up a nearby lawn chair, boulder, or stump and sit down to an awesome game of chess, checkers, or cards right there beneath the stars. With the all-new Ford Bronco, you can let your imagination run wild.
Clever Side Mirror Placement
Another easily overlooked yet incredibly convenient feature on the all-new Ford Bronco is the vehicle’s unique side mirror placement.
On most off-road vehicles, side mirrors are mounted on the driver and passenger doors, just as they are on any street vehicle. That design choice seems fine, until you want to take full-advantage of your all-terrain vehicle’s removable doors. Removing the doors also removes the mirrors, posing potential problems when you’re thundering through tight mountain trails.
On the 2021 Ford Bronco, the side mirrors are instead mounted on the SUV’s hood cowl, which is located at the base of the windshield. This way, when you start stripping down your ride to get even closer to the wild, you’ll still have the benefit of an all-around view.
Hydraulic Suspension and Sway Bar
If you’re going to spend your day rumbling over fields of boulders and ripping through muddy creek and riverbeds, you’re going to need some suspension equipment that’s up to the task.
Traditional suspension setups and sway bars can keep handling in check on the pavement, but when it comes to extreme off-roading, the typical suspension systems can hinder wheel articulation and traction.
The all-new Bronco is equipped with a highly advanced hydraulic suspension system and a disconnecting sway bar that works overtime to give you the most traction possible on uneven terrain. When you get back up to speed, the sway bar reconnects automatically.
The next time you find yourself struggling to get out of the mud or to climb over the crags, simply push a button and watch the tires adjust to meet the earth.
Most experienced off-roaders are familiar with a two-foot driving style that allows them to better control both the gas and brakes of their vehicle while rock crawling. This is definitely one of the most authentic parts of the all-terrain vehicle experience, but for newcomers, it can also be pretty intimidating.
The designers of the all-new Bronco sought to bridge this gap with the introduction of a unique one-pedal driving feature that is available on Broncos with the 10-speed automatic transmission option.
This feature is meant to be used at low-speeds, such as those required for careful navigation of unstable terrain. When engaged, the Bronco will automatically apply the brakes when you let up on the accelerator, thus eliminating the need for such advanced skill.
Fender-Mounted Guide Hoops
When it comes to off-road driving, the ability to accurately judge the space surrounding your vehicle is incredibly paramount. On tight, heavily forested, or cliffside trails, it can be all too easy to misjudge, resulting in possible damage to your vehicle or an increased likelihood of getting stuck.
Now, thanks to some cleverly-engineered fender-mounted hoops, Bronco drivers can more easily spot the corners of their ride. In turn, this will provide owners with a better baseline for judging which tight spaces their SUV can handle, and which paths are better left untraveled.
As an added bonus, these fender-mounted hoops also double as tie-down points for roof-stored cargo, offering a 150-pound weight rating.
Advanced Trail-Tackling Tech
One of the most fascinating features on the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco is its newly-developed arsenal of technologies designed specifically to give you an added advantage on any trail you come across.
Among these new technologies is Trail Turn Assist, a feature that locks the inside rear wheel when attempting especially sharp corners. As a result, this tech makes death-defying three-point turns on narrow mountain paths a lot less frightening.
This unique set of features, which Ford has dubbed the “Trail Toolbox,” also includes Trail Control, the off-road equivalent of adaptive cruise control. This feature will help you maintain thrilling speeds without worrying about excessive throttle manipulation.
Action-Ready Device Mounting Racks
Just because you’ve become one with the great outdoors, doesn’t mean you have to go entirely off the grid. As traditional as the 2021 Ford Bronco family is, it’s also designed for modern convenience as well.
One key element that definitely lends itself to this futuristic way of thinking is the availability of a device mounting rack which extends across the front dash.
This handy rack includes multiple mounting points for devices such as smartphones and GoPros, allowing you to record your journey and stay connected to civilized society while out in the wild.
Virtually Waterproof Interior
When you spend an extended amount of time splashing through rivers, creeks, and streams, it’s inevitable that you’re going to get a little wet. On other off-road and all-terrain vehicles, this can potentially wreak havoc on your vehicle’s interior and electronics, but not on the all-new Bronco.
Each and every switch, bell, button, and whistle on the 2021 Ford Bronco is entirely waterproof. This SUV can also be ordered with available marine-grade water-resistant seating and upholstery.
In addition, you can also order the Bronco with rubber flooring and built-in drain plugs. This means that even if your next adventure results in puddles, you aren’t at risk of damaging your vehicle’s carpeting or rusting out your floorboards over time.
