The 2021 Ford Bronco will be one of the most off-road capable vehicles you can buy when it goes on sale in the next few months. With the Bronco’s reintroduction, the Jeep Wrangler is no longer the go to choice for going off the beaten path. But just because it’s sights are set purely on off-road performance doesn’t mean we can’t imagine, and that’s just what Chip Foose did with his 2021 Ford Bronco street rod sketch.
Foose says he always wants to go, “180 from what everyone else is doing,” and this is certainly that. While Ford designed the Bronco for easy mods, most of them will be off-road based. This is the opposite. Check out the video below, and sit back and relax for it. The time-lapse of Foose drawing with the chilled out music is very soothing.
Foose starts out by getting a basic overlay of the 2021 Ford Bronco to get all the hard points down. But from here, everything changes. Gone is the roof and traditional roll structure in favor of a single roll hoop. Other details up top include the steeply raked windshield and rear spoiler. It looks like the rear seats are gone, too.
The biggest change is obviously the slammed ride height. It’s accentuated by the large alloy wheels, whose design is an awful lot like the C8 Corvette’s trident design. The basic body of the Ford Bronco remains, however. Retro graphics line the hood, and the fender flares look particularly great with those giant alloys, but we can’t help but dream about how it would look with the upcoming Ford Bronco Warthog’s wide body design.
Finally, Chip Foose discusses what could power the street rod 2021 Ford Bronco, and suggests they could put a Mustang Mach-E electric powertrain underneath. It’s unlikely this would actually work, as the Bronco’s current frame isn’t really built for a skateboard battery, but it’s a cool idea.
