Deep Dive

2021 Ford Bronco Reviews, Price, Specs, Comparisons and On-sale Date

All of the reviews, videos, deep dives and comparisons ... basically, everything we know

The 2021 Ford Bronco has finally been revealed, and although its on-sale date has been delayed until summer 2021, it's nevertheless coming soon. Few new vehicles receive as much hype as Ford's resurrected off-roader has, and judging by the pictures, specs and what we know of its development, it sure looks like the hype could be warranted. Simply put, the new Bronco seems pretty cool. 

We have now driven the 2021 Bronco, and we've found it to be as good as so many hoped. There's so much to know about the new Bronco, though, that we couldn't possibly squeeze it all into that review. On this page you can find everything we know about Ford's off-road SUV. That includes our general overview; deep dives into its engineering and trim levels; a breakdown of pricing and colors; and comparisons highlighting the Bronco specs versus those of the Wrangler and 4Runner

Ford Bronco Suspension (Speculative) Deep Dive 

Contributing engineer/writer Dan Edmunds does his usual thing by diving deeply into the new Bronco's underpinnings ... albeit from afar using pictures rather than crawling under the thing while it's parked in his driveway.

Breaking down the new Bronco's many roof options and modular body panels

The 2021 Ford Bronco's body is modular, meaning the body panels easily come off for repair and possible accessorizing. Its roof is also removable, but there are different roof options, which we describe here.

What the headline says.

 

Sasquatch Package is Automatic-Only ... For Now

The attractive Sasquatch package —  which adds 35-inch tires and locking differentials and is ostensibly available on every variant of the new 4x4 — can only be paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission. This is sad, but there is also hope as the manual transmission will eventually be Sasquatchable even if it's been delayed to 2022
