Hobbyists and enthusiasts who enjoy fitting their truck or SUV with the latest off-road upgrades can perhaps find the installation process a bit of a hassle. Most of the time, vehicles don’t come equipped with a control panel of switchgear that’s hardwired into the design. This then requires drilling holes, running wires, and a lot of guesswork into installing something like an off-road light bar, or a winch. That’s not the case with the 2021 Ford Bronco, which offers six toggle switches meant to control auxiliary feeds that power whatever accessories the customer has installed. These built-in switches are meant to connect various 2021 Ford Bronco accessories like pod lights, lightbars and/or off-road gear such as a winch.

Overall, it’s meant to make the personalization of the new SUV easier, and reduces the risk of future issues resulting from a DIY installation. The 2021 Ford Bronco auxiliary switches come standard on Black Diamond, Wildtrak, Badlands and First Edition models, and are optional on Base and Outer Banks series. The set of 2021 Ford Bronco auxiliary switches vary in power. There’s one 30 amp, one 15 amp, and four 10 amp switches.

For comparison, the JL Jeep Wrangler offers pre-wired aux switches as well, but there are only four of them to the Bronco’s six. Even so, the Jeep setup is comprised of two 40 amp switches and two 15 amp switches.

The 2021 Ford Bronco 2-Door and 4-Door SUV family are set to hit the market this summer, after Covid-related supplier issues set back its launch by six months. Pending no further delays, the new Bronco will hit the market with some 200 accessories, including everything from tube doors, to exhaust kits, to even a portable refrigerator, according to a recent leak.

The 2021 Ford Bronco price starts from $28,500 USD for the Base 2-Door, but can easily climb to $61,605 for a 1-of-7000 Bronco 4-Door First Edition.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
