The All-New 4X4 SUV Was Under Wraps During President Trump’s Visit

President Trump was in Michigan this week visiting various Ford Motor Company facilities. Most media outlets made headlines about POTUS not wearing a mask, but Ford enthusiasts saw a bigger deal in something else. The all-new 2021 Ford Bronco was on display during one of Trump’s plant visits, but remained under a tarp. If you recall, the official reveal was meant to happen all the way back in March, but the COVID-19 pandemic had other plans. Since then, images of the Bronco have been leaked in full, but Ford has done little to acknowledge them publicly.

Uploaded on Bronco6G, the image yields nothing that isn’t already known, unfortunately.

The 2021 Ford Bronco is expected to hit dealers early next year after an adjusted timeline. But Ford has yet to provide any information on a reveal date or production start date. That said, the reveal is still expected to take place “this spring.” It’s Memorial Weekend at the time of this writing, so that timeline has just a few more weeks to hold true. At this point, it’s possible that the 2021 Ford Bronco, Bronco Sport and 2021 Ford F-150 could all debut on the same day, somehow, as all three of their original reveal dates have reportedly came and went.

At this point, it feels like the world just wants Ford to get on with it, and we’d like to speculate that they’re about to do just that. The Bronco is America’s most anticipated vehicle, after all, while the F-150 is the next chapter of America’s best-selling vehicle.

The new Bronco is expected to take the fight to the Jeep Wrangler right out of the gate, with several body styles and trim levels available from the get-go. Just as well, Ford will offer dozens of accessories for the SUV that are sure to arouse deep-pocketed off-road enthusiasts. Meanwhile, a significant paper trail of patent drawings suggest that the new Bronco will have everything from stow-able removable doors, to a suspension system that can dance to music.

Are we ready?

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.

  1. Yes, I saw one proto type of a new Bronco I thought was perfect. Saller very plain. It was red with a white top. I think there needs to be a inexpensive version. Something useable for “Dad”. 4×4, a/c, power windows, disc brakes, turbo 4cyl. Something for work, snow, fishing, mud.
    Similar to an old Scout.
