Not to be left out, Ford debuted the 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands Trail Rig concept to demonstrate how tough this little 4×4 SUV can look with just a pinch of imagination. Mimicking the same attitude as its big brother, the Bronco 2-Door Trail Rig just a few feet away, this little thing will have a hard time getting stuck, and an even harder time not fitting down a narrow trail. It will also hit the market with over 100 accessories in just a few months. The highlights are outlined below:

Featured Bronco Sport Accessories:
Yakima LockNLoad Platform roof rack
Yakima LockNLoad recovery/off-road gear mounts
Yakima HD Bar crossbars
Yakima LockNLoad high-lift jack and axe holders
Ford Performance recovery boards, jerry cans.

Featured Bronco Sport Concept Parts:
31-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 tires (2.5 inches wider than stock)
Aftermarket one-inch lift kit
Front nudge bar
Ford Performance by Rigid LED off-road lights
Jerry can, high-lift jack and axe.

The Badlands package tops the range of the 2021 Bronco Sport family, and starts at a reasonable $32,660. It’s solely powered by the 2.0L EcoBoost four-cylinder, and it produces a targeted best-in-class rating of 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The motor is backed by Ford’s 8-speed automatic transmission, which features steering wheel mounted paddles exclusive to the Badlands series models. The Badlands package also includes off-roading features include the addition of metal bash plates, front tow hooks, Ford’s Trail Control system, and even a trail camera system integrated with the infotainment.

It might not be the coveted Suzuki Jimny, but the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Trail Rig Concept has just about everything one would need to go exploring well beyond the basecamp. We can  confirm this, but you’ll have to wait until next week to know what we mean by that.
