Well folks, it has finally happened. After months of speculation and investigation about what the two vehicles might look like, actual images of the Ford Bronco and its baby-sized companion have seemingly leaked online. If these images are representative of how the two vehicles will leave the factory, we confidently can say that everyone is going to be satisfied with the finished product.
Naturally we are going to start with the photos of the full-size Ford Bronco, which is the most anticipated vehicle of the year. The photos were first released on Instagram by Juggernaut Power, a veteran-owned and operated performance company based out of Eastford, Connecticut. Once you get over the fact that these pictures look like they were taken on some sort of Nokia from the turn of the century, they do offer up the best look at the SUV that we have had yet. The post highlights both the two-door and the four-door variants of the reborn off-roader, which feature a number of style cues that have long been rumored. For instance, the headlights appear to be the same units as the ones that leaked earlier this year, and the body lines sure do look inspired by the trucks from the 1960s as has been talked about for months.
The truck certainly looks like it is ready to tackle the trails, thanks to its beefy tires and large overfenders. The photos makes it look like the four-door is sporting a canvas top, while the two-door’s body-color roof looks to be a targa much like the one found on the Jeep Wrangler.
Now let’s talk about the baby-Bronco, or should we say the Bronco Sport. After months of going back and forth on what this Escape-based SUV would be called, these most recent leaked images show the baby-Bronco donning a “sport’ badge across the back. The photos were originally posted to the Bronco6G forum, but have since been removed a posted to the BroncoSport Forum. The vehicle looks very similar to the images that Ford showed at their Las Vegas dealer meeting back in November of 2018, which is by no means a bad thing. The styling appears to draw from that of the bigger Bronco, especially in the headlights and the “up-kick” on the rear doors. Compared to the Jeep Renegade that it will compete against, the Bronco Sport is a helluva good looking compact SUV.
While we finally have a real look as to what these two highly anticipated SUVs look like, we will get the full low-down before the month is over. Until then, bask in the glory that is the 2021 Ford Bronco and the smaller Bronco Sport. We think that Ford has done a really good job here, and that the Jeep Wrangler should beware.
