With the Bronco Sport and the four-door and two-door Broncos set to hit B.C. later this year and in spring 2021, respectively, there’s much for Ford aficionados to look forward to. We’d be remiss not to highlight the shared qualities of these tremendous machines, so today we’re doing just that!

The 2021 Bronco will benefit from superior off-road capability thanks to reinforced front tow hooks and available heavy-duty modular steel bumpers complete with an integrated Ford Performance accessory winch mount. Available best-in-class 11.6-inch ground clearance, best-in-class water fording capability of more than 33 inches, and a maximum 29-degree breakover angle and 37.2-degree departure angle are on tap.

 

These SUVs have even more going for them, too. Trail One-Pedal Drive offers better slow-mode rock crawling while the first-in-its segment Trail Toolbox supplies improved off-road turning radiuses through Trail Turn Assist.

Can’t get enough of the upcoming 2021 Bronco? You’re certainly not alone, and Ford knows it—which is why they’re debuting “Bring Back Bronco: The Untold Story” on August 10.

“Bring Back Bronco” is an eight-part podcast series that takes a look at how Ford’s celebrated SUV came to be. Hosted by former National Public Radio transportation and economics correspondent, Sonari Glinton, the series will cover the original debut of the Bronco through its cancellation in 1996—and the efforts of Ford’s “Bronco Underground” employees who covertly worked to bring the automobile back to life.

 

"The Bronco is an iconic vehicle, with an unusual history of twists and turns, ascents and descents,” said Ford Chief Communications Officer, Mark Truby. “It demands a fresh storytelling approach to shed light on what makes it special and so compelling to its huge fan base, as well as for new fans who will discover the rich history along with the new Broncos.”

“Bring Back Bronco” will be available on Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, and more come August 10. Call us to learn more!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
