While the First Edition, Wildtrak and Badlands Ford Bronco will have their place as the most off-road capable version of Ford’s new SUV, the reality is there are customers that are more drawn to the Bronco for it’s style than the actual off-road capability. The Ford Bronco Outer Banks is a more appearance oriented Bronco, but that doesn’t mean it can’t off-road with rest of the gang.

The Bronco Outer Banks is the only Bronco to come with 18 inch wheels, a hint at its intentions. But unlike the Jeep Wrangler Sahara, its main target, the Outer Banks still comes as standard with beefy 2-inch LT255/70R18 all-terrain tires. You have to pay extra to upgrade from all-seasons on the Wrangler Sahara. The Outer Banks can also be optioned with the Sasquatch package, giving 35 inch mud-terrain tires and deadlock compatible wheels, high clearance fenders, electronic diffs, and position sensitive Bilstein shocks. The Advanced 4×4 system is also optional.¬†Standard are six terrain specific G.O.A.T. Modes.

Under the hood, the Bronco Outer Banks will be available with either a 270 hp 2.3 liter EcoBoost four cylinder or a 2.7 liter 310 hp EcoBoost V6. The four cylinder gets either a seven speed manual with a crawler gear or 10 speed automatic, and the V6 is auto only. All Broncos send power to a standard four wheel drive system

The Ford Bronco Outer Banks has many options to consider. All Broncos get four main equipment packs: Standard, Mid, High and Lux. The Outer Banks starts out in Mid, which comes with highlights like¬†Ford’s CoPilot 360 safety tech, more power outlets, Intelligent Access locking doors, dual climate, ambient footwell lighting and heated front seats. Stepping up to high gives a 12 inch touchscreen, 360 camera and sensors, puddle lamps and additional sound deadening. The top level Lux package adds Adaptive Cruise Control, a 10 speaker B&O sound system, heated steering wheel, garage door opener, and a wireless charging pad.
