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?
