Ever since the Dearborn automakers told us they would be bringing the truck back to the market in 2017, we have patiently awaited the return of the Ford Bronco. For years we’ve seen renderings, spy shots and leaked images of the off-roader, along with reading countless USPTO filings made on behalf of Ford. The 2021 Ford Bronco was supposed to make its world debut earlier this year, but the reveal was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now though, officials have confirmed that the all-new Ford Bronco will debut in July. And despite all of the leaks, there’s undoubtedly so much more to tell.

This is huge news for fans of the off-road focused SUV, who have had to wait 26 years since the Bronco was last on sale. Aimed squarely at the Jeep Wrangler, the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco is set to hit the market next year with vintage SUV styling, trail-ready ground clearance, and a host of removable body panels, just like its FCA rival.
We also basically confirm at this point that the reborn off-roader will debut with Ford’s turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine as standard, though we expect the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 to arrive as an option at launch. Based on some sneaky insider reports, it is safe to assume that hybrid and EV models aren’t off the table in later model years, and neither is a Bronco Raptor.
While Ford has yet to confirm what day next month they will be unveiling the 2021 Bronco, the wait is finally nearing its end. We are less than 60 days away from knowing everything about the highly anticipated SUV, which in itself is pretty exciting. No pricing information has been released at this time, but it’s speculated that the 2021 Bronco will carry an MSRP starting around the $30,000 mark. Your time is almost here Bronco faithful, you just have to make it a little longer.
