Get ready, Penticton! The 2021 Ford Bronco two- and four-door models are set to take B.C. by storm early next year. If you’re a fan of off-roading, this machine is poised to blow your mind with sophisticated trail technology that likely outstrips anything you’ve experienced prior.

Off-road capability hits segment-leading levels in the 2021 Bronco thanks to reinforced, exposed front tow hooks and available heavy-duty modular steel bumpers with an integrated Ford Performance accessory winch mount. Additionally, you’ll benefit from a maximum 29-degree 
breakover angle and 37.2-degree departure angle, available best-in-class 11.6-inch ground clearance, and best-in-class water fording capability that exceeds 33 inches.
 

The 2021 Ford Bronco doesn't stop there. Its first-in-its segment Trail Toolbox elevates the experience further with improved off-road turning radiuses through torque vectoring thanks to Trail Turn Assist. Also, Trail One-Pedal Drive provides better slow-mode rock crawling as a function of enhanced acceleration and braking control.

Penticton, gear up for a very special off-roading experience when the 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands and First Edition trims release later this year. They’re both set to thoroughly thrill with incredible high-level power and off-road performance.

Both of these new 2021 Bronco Sport trims come packed standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine that has a targeted best-in-class performance of 245 HP and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. This compares to 181 horsepower and 190 lb.-ft. of torque planned for the lower trims of the Base, Big Bend, and Outer Banks models, as a point of comparison.

 

All models of the upcoming Bronco Sport come with an independent front and rear suspension for taking on aggressive terrain, but the Badlands and First Edition models take things a step further. Their systems include specially tuned front struts with hydraulic rebound stops for a less jarring ride. Also, 46-millimeter-diameter monotube rear shocks improve comfort when tearing up the trails.

The upcoming two- and four-door Broncos—set for release early next year—are set to provide thrilling off-roading experiences for owners throughout B.C. Today, we want to discuss two incredible aspects of these upcoming vehicles—driver-selectable modes and available 4x4 systems.

The 2021 Bronco will supply drivers with seven selectable modes depending on the use case of their outing. First up is “Normal” (self-explanatory, right?), followed by “Eco” and “Sport,” the former of which puts a focus on fuel conservation and the latter of which firms things up for a fun ride. There’s also “Slippery” and “Sand” for traction control, and “Baja,” “Mud/Ruts,” and “Rock Crawl” specifically for off-road driving.

 

The new Broncos are also offered with the option of two separate 4x4 systems. The base system relies on a two-speed, electronic shift, on-the-fly transfer case. The advanced system ups the ante with a two-speed electromechanical transfer case with an auto mode for on-demand engagement and 2H/4H selection.

With the recently announced 2021 Bronco Sport, there’s going to be nothing holding you back. Wherever you wish to roam in B.C., this mighty machine will take you there not only in style but with a supreme confidence born of its sensational engineering.

All Bronco Sport models are set to ship later this year with standard 4x4 functionality and an independent front and rear suspension. Class-exclusive features that are tailor-made for the trail include a safari-style roof that boasts best-in-class headroom, greater than 100 factory-backed and aftermarket accessories, and a cargo area capable of accommodating two 27.5-inch-wheel mountain bikes.

 

That’s not all. The 2021 Bronco Sport was tested in the extreme conditions of the Johnson Valley desert in California. To handle such a challenge, prospective owners will be thrilled that both the First Edition and Badlands models come with a class-exclusive twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock feature. It can smartly divert nearly all rear axle torque to either wheel as necessary. Innovative!

Unless you’ve been completely off the grid the past week, you’ve likely heard about the new Ford lineup that’s completely at home, well, off the grid—the new 2021 Bronco. These machines are all “Built Wild,” and the particularly burly two- and four-door Broncos are ready to take Penticton and B.C. by storm starting early next year.

The new two- and four-door Broncos come loaded with your choice of powerful EcoBoost engines, including an available 2.7L EcoBoost V6 that churns out a sensational 310 horses and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. While an automatic transmission is available, buyers will have their choice of a hands-on, segment-exclusive seven-speed manual. Also available are tremendous 35-inch tires (also segment-exclusive) and a best-in-class 94.75:1 crawl ratio, suspension travel, water fording, and ground clearance.

 

Oh, and want to show off a bit? The 2021 Bronco comes with segment-exclusive digital trail mapping functionality that allows for the planning, recording, and sharing of off-road experiences through an all-in-one app.

While Ford announced the exciting new 2021 Bronco two-door and four-door models this week, they also had another thrilling reveal—the compact, rugged, and stylish 2021 Bronco Sport. Built using the Big Blue Oval’s C2 platform, the Sport offers a different take on the Bronco without sacrificing the off-road focus.

The 4x4 2021 Bronco Sport is powerful and capable—and more than ready for you to put it through its paces in Penticton and B.C. when it goes on sale in North America later this year. The SUV is set to impress with its available 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine offering segment-best torque and horsepower. Its architecture also boasts a class-exclusive twin-clutch rear-drive unit with a differential lock feature, as well as 
cargo area to support stowing two 27.5-inch-wheel mountain bikes and a safari-style roof that boasts class-leading headroom.
 

That’s not all. The new Bronco Sport offers class-exclusive (you’ll be hearing that phrase a lot over the coming months) Trail Control™ tech that enhances off-road performance. It works by enabling a cruise control-esque experience up to 20 MPH forward and 6 MPH in reverse, providing for vehicle-controlled braking and throttle.

Bronco is back! Earlier this week, Ford revealed the all-new two- and four-door models of the Bronco to wildly positive feedback from the automotive community. Last seen in 1996, these rough-and-tumble SUVs are returning for 2021 and are packing a ton of power and utility.

You’ll love what’s under the hood. The new Bronco is outfitted with your choice of spectacular engines. The 2.3L EcoBoost option was designed to hit “best-in-class” four-cylinder torque numbers of 310 lb.-ft. alongside an expected 270 horsepower. Even better, the available 2.7L EcoBoost V6 variant is slated to crank out 310 HP and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. There’s also the option of a segment-exclusive 7-speed manual transmission for those drivers that elect to forgo the automatic.

 

Notably, the 2021 Bronco is modular. You can break down both the two-door and four-door models in almost any way you can imagine. Select versions provide quick-swap, fast-release stowable doors and roof panels. This combined with the standard 4x4 functionality across the entire lineup ensures these machines are truly Built Wild.

The 2021 Bronco two- and four-door models will become available early next year. Ring us at Skaha Ford now to learn more!


 
In one of our previous postings, we discussed the legacy of the Ford Bronco dating back to World War II. Now, ahead of this week’s unveiling of the all-new 2021 Bronco, we wanted to take a moment to once again revisit history and speak on the vehicle’s racing impact.

That’s right. The original Bronco—first released in 1966—made an appearance at the 1969 Baja 1000 motorsport race. Founded by Ed Pearlman and run on the Baja California Peninsula in northwestern Mexico, it’s one of the world’s most prestigious off-road races… and drivers Larry Minor and Rod Hall captured an overall win in a Bronco at the grueling event in ’69. It’s a feat no other production 4x4 has achieved in 50 years.

Now, Ford is set to bring the Bronco back. The 2021 iteration will be revealed on National Geographic, ESPN, and ABC at 8 p.m. EDT this Monday, July 13th. It’s an event set to inspire enthusiasts in Penticton and beyond.

 

“Rugged vehicles are in our heritage and we see strong growth opportunities with this ever-more popular segment,” said Kumar Galhotra, Ford president, Americas, and International Markets Group. “The Bronco brand meets that need by creating a family of truly capable off-roaders to take our customers further into the wild. We’ve leveraged our extensive off-road experience from vehicles like F-150 Raptor to ensure that every Bronco delivers the Built Wild toughness and durability our customers expect.”

Ring us later this week to get the scoop on the all-new Bronco!
Penticton, do you know just how far back the lineage of Ford’s venerable Bronco goes? Contrary to popular belief, the SUV, last seen in 1996 and ready for a return this upcoming week, can trace its history well before the 1960s.

Ford first dived into the world of SUVs during World War II, developing technology and engineering prowess that would eventually be used in the Bronco. Joining an American government competition to construct tough carry-all utilities for GIs on the battlefield, the Big Blue Oval created the GP, short for “general purpose.” More than 270,000 were built for Allied forces and, upon returning home, many GIs brought surplus GPs with them. 

 

Following the war, Ford realized the GPs were too small for civilians, so in the early ’60s they redeveloped the machine into an off-road vehicle for the masses—the Bronco. Nicknamed the G.O.A.T. by Donald Frey, Ford president, the machines would come to be known for their “go anywhere roadability” upon their reveal on Aug. 11, 1965 and release in 1966.

Call us at Skaha Ford later this upcoming week to hear all about the new Bronco!
