Reports emerged over the past few days that the 2021 Ford Bronco reveal – which was originally set to be revealed in March – would be delayed “a couple of months,” as Michigan remains in full lockdown mode due to the novel coronavirus outbreak. At the time of this writing, the Great Lakes state has recorded over 30,700 cases, with over 2,300 deaths – the sixth highest in the United States. The original report comes from Roadshow, although a follow-up from Motor1 cites Ford officials proclaiming the new Bronco will be officially revealed “this spring.”

Both reports could be correct.

Springtime doesn’t officially end until June. This led to early estimates of the reveal taking place at the now-canceled 2020 Detroit Auto Show. Which, despite taking place in June, still was scheduled before the summer solstice. Ergo, an official Ford Bronco reveal rescheduled few months from now (April), could still be the truth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has delayed several of Ford’s major product reveals that were scheduled to happen within the first half of the year. The most significant of which is the all-new 2021 Ford F-150, which was originally scheduled for April 14. The 2021 Ford Bronco and Ford Bronco Sport, meanwhile, were both slated for late March and early April, respectively.

Plenty of 2021 Ford Bronco information, and even photos, have leaked out to the public at this point. Several patents, for instance, have pointed to everything from two-piece removable doors, to absurdly clever suspension systems, and even a removable roll cage. Leaked photos otherwise confirm both a two-door and a four-door version like the Jeep Wrangler, while other leaks point to a manual transmission, and an array of EcoBoost engine. A Bronco Raptor has been rumored, as has a Bronco pickup truck, but these two variants are not likely to show face anytime soon.

Anticipation for the 2021 Bronco has great enough for data to suggest that it’s more hyped than even the mid-engine Corvette. No doubt, Ford is in for a rollout of amazing product within the next year. Everybody just has to bunker down for a little longer.

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.

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.
