2021 Ford Bronco First Edition
2021 Bronco First Edition

The 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition was fully reserved in mere hours after it was announced. All it took was just 3,500 customers to spend a cool $100, and poof. You snooze, you lose. Since then, Ford has increased the production cap of the First Edition Bronco to 7,000 units; double the initial amount. The news is shared with us from the folks over at Bronco6G, where customers began sharing emails of the announcement. The message is pictured below. That said, reservations remain full, even with Ford doubling the initial offer.

2021 Ford Bronco First Edition Production Volume

The 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition 2-Door carries an MSRP of $59,305 MSRP, while the 4-Door comes in at an even higher $63,500. It’s a formidable combination of Badlands mechanical bits, Outer Banks interior treatments, and the Wildtrak’s slick exterior touches, the Bronco First Edition is packed to the brim with the best content Ford is offering for the 2021 model year. Under the hood is that 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, making 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. That class-leading power is routed to the new advanced 4×4 system with automatic on-demand engagement, and the high-clearance suspension from the Badlands model. That system also features electronically locking differentials front and rear, while a standard front stabilizer bar can disconnect for more articulation on the trails.

The Bronco First Edition is also the only Bronco model that comes as standard with the Lux package. This top-level trim package contains all of the equipment on offer in the lower trimmed Mid and High package equipped cars. This includes features like a 12-inch center touch screen, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, tons of sensors, and even more USB ports.

Bronco production and deliveries are scheduled to begin in spring of 2021.

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.
