SEMA show builder and Baja Forged confounder Theresa Contrearas brought a four-door Ford Bronco Outer Banks to this year’s show, and it’s absolutely jaw dropping to look at. For those wishing Land Rover took the Defender in a more retro-futurist direction, this special Bronco may be what you’re looking for.
The Baja Forged Ford Bronco by LGE-CTS Motorsports combines off-road with a bit of luxury as it comes equipped with an on-board fridge, and JBL sound bar. There is also an underfloor safe and cargo organizer for you to store your belongings during an off-road escape. Some other notes of change include Ford Licensed Accessories tailgate folding table, and Baja Forged fender flares as well as a rear mounted spare tire carrier.
For power, this 2021 Ford Bronco features the standard 2.3L Ecoboost engine, putting out 300 horsepower. It sits up higher than a stock Outer Banks model as it sports a 3-inch Icon Vehicle Dynamics suspension lift kit and massive 35×13.50R20 Nitto Recon Grappler tires wrapped around 20×9 Method race wheels. The Bronco is also equipped with a Borla catback performance exhaust system as well as an Injen Evolution air intake with twist lock technology, featuring the Super Nano-web dry filter.
Some additional exterior highlights include Baja Forged front and rear tubular bumpers with integrated front winch to assist in vehicle recovery and rock slide bars. There is also a Rigid Industries 20” Adapt Light Bar mounted to the front of the bumper and Ford Performance off-road rock lights. Inside there is a full suite of luxury leather seats.
Theresa Contreas has been a SEMA show builder for years and runs LGE-CTS Motorsports with her sister, Sara Morosan. Their company has done work for a number of corporations such as Ford, Kia, and Mickey Thompson Tires. They’ve also worked with some notable famous car enthusiasts such as Jay Leno, Chip Foose, and country singer Luke Bryan. It goes to figure that the Baja Forged Bronco was good enough to take home Ford Design award for looking so damn exceptional.
