When the Ford Bronco was revealed back in July, an orange Two Door model stood out with many accessories that previewed how owners could customize their SUVs. Since then, the Cyber Orange Bronco has made its rounds of the internet, but Ford still hasn’t said which of the accessories would be offered to customers. Ford Bronco fans hoped the doors with cut out holes in them, affectionately nicknamed ‘donut doors,’ would be available in the future. Unfortunately, a post on Bronco6G forum indicates that, despite high praise, the donut doors will remain in concept form.
According to forum members who attended the Bronco Driver Magazine Super Celebration East, the news broke that the special doors were canceled because – allegedly – of crash test results. One member said a Ford rep in attendance confirmed this. Allegedly.
Luckily, those at the event said the tube doors are still in the plans and should be offered as an accessory. These are more open than the donut doors, giving a good balance of protection and a doors-off, open air feel.
But the Ford Bronco donut doors were a design touch so loved on that orange two door Bronco, pictured in this post, that we still think their style will make it to market one way or another. Ford nixing them leaves a wide gap for aftermarket manufacturers to create their own versions, and they will no doubt be successful. Still, the incoming tube doors aren’t too bad of a trade off.
Ultimately, the Bronco’s configurator may give us the best look yet at the range of accessories available. Hopefully users can select some parts from the many Bronco concepts that have followed the reveal, such as the recently unveiled Filson Fire Rig, Overland, Trail Rig, and Fishing Guide.
