The Bronco has returned; not just as a vehicle, but as a strong and independent brand. The Bronco family has been revealed and let us say, we are not disappointed. The brand truly captures the off-road essence that we all expected, and hoped for.
There are two models available with an enormous amount of customizability. The full sized Bronco comes in either two door, or four and offers an array of options to suit any of your outdoor needs. The full sized Bronco comes standard with a 2.3L Ecoboost I4 engine with a projected output of 270 HP and 310 lb-ft of torque. The optional 2.7L Ecoboost V6 (standard on the WildTrak model), has a projected output of 310 HP and 400 lb-ft of torque.
In order to maximize the capability offered and fit each customers unique requirements; Ford has paired these engines with two separate transmissions. The 2.3L can be mated with the 7-speed manual transmission (2-door), or the 10-speed automatic (4-door). The manual transmission's first gear is set as a "crawler gear". When paired with the optional automatic four-wheel-drive transfer case; it delivers a 94,.8:1 crawl ratio. This gear is put below reverse in the shift pattern in order to keep it out of the way while driving.
The Bronco comes through with 6 different available packages; Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Badlands, Outer Banks, and WildTrak. Each holds its own within the niche it's designed for. The Base for example, is for the essentialist; making it ripe for customization. Standard 4X4, easy to remove doors and roof, as well as optional 35' tires (available in the sasquatch pacakge), make certain that this provides all the key Bronco features with none of the fat.
The WildTrak model is the opposite extreme. The epitome of luxury and capabilities, this comes standard with 35' tires (wrapped around 17' beadlock capable wheels), front (and rear) locking differentials, and Bilstein position sensitive monotube shocks. In addition; the available 2.7L engine, ensures there's always power when you need it.
In between those two, are a multitude of different options. Different strokes for different folks is definitely the key motto here. With each offering differnt combinations of heavy duty modular front bumpers, rock rails, upgraded bash plates, the addition of seven terrain management modes, and more make this one a game changer.
The Bronco Sport has two different powertrain options. The 1.5L Ecoboost is slated for 181 HP and 190 ft-lbs of torque. The 2.0L Ecoboost on the other hand is slated for a best in class 245 HP and 275 lb-ft of torque. There are 4 different models to choose from; Base, Big Bend, Outer Banks, and Badlands. As with the full sized Bronco, each has unique features, designed with you in mind.
The Base provides the essentials. All the capability and styling of the Bronco, with none of the unnecessary features. A standard 4X4, safari style roof, and terrain management system (with 5 G.O.A.T. modes (Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal)), make for a mean machine. Ford Co-Pilot 360 also comes as a standard feature so you can drive with confidence. This includes Pre-collision assist, BLIS, Lane-Keep System, Automatic High-Beams, and a Rear View Camera with Washer. .
The Big Bend offers some of the creature comforts you might be craving, over and on top of the essentials. Things like remote start, heated front seats, and electronic automatic temperature control all come standard. In addition, optional packages such as Ford Co-Pilot 360+, Tow, and the Big Bend Package (roof, reverse sensing, leather wrapped steering wheel, and wireless charging pad) make for a highly customizable unit.
Outer Banks is the luxury option for those who prefer the finer things. This include all that you would expect to find in the fine tailored alternative; including standard leather trimmed seating, reverse sensing, heated steering wheel, and dual-zone electronic temperature control. Optional packages such as Ford Co-Pilot 360 Assist 2.0, tow, and an Outer Banks Package (B&O 10-speaker sound system with subwoofer, HD radio, roof, and wireless charging pad) allow for an enhanced experience.
The Badlands model is built for adventure. A standard 2.0L Ecoboost engine, avanced 4X4 with Twin-Clutch Rear Drive Unit, and enhanced terrain management system with 7 G.O.A.T. modes (Rock Crawl, and Mud/Ruts) make for an offroad beast. As it would be expected, there are several packages available to truly customize your ride. These include Ford Co-Pilot 360 Assist 2.0, tow, and the Badlands Package (6-way power passenger seat, 4-way adjustable driver/passenger head restraints, B&O 10-speaker sound system with subwoofer, body colour door handles, Dual-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control, HD Radio, roof, reverse sensing, heated/leather wrapped steering wheel, and a wireless charging pad).
