We were supposed to finally see thea couple months ago, but the pandemic put the kibosh on such plans. While we don't have a new date for when we'll see the highly anticipated off-road SUV, video of it mudding should tide fans over.
Bronco Nation published video last Friday of the SUV in its element tackling some sludgy mud, and the Bronco looks to have no issues tackling things. The camouflaged prototypes seen here are of the two-door variety, but there'll also be a four-door version. Make no mistake, the two-door will be the cooler of the couple.
Ford is, unsurprisingly, keeping tight-lipped about the SUV. All we know is that Ford still plans tosometime this spring. While Memorial Day kicks off summer in its own fashion, the season technically doesn't end until June 20, so a debut sometime this month is almost guaranteed. Unless Ford plans to drag things out longer, that is.
As for what we do know, the Bronco will be mighty retro in its looks andconfirm the design. It'll likely have all sorts of ways to remove the roof and doors and a top-tier engine will likely be a V6. Less powerful models will likely find motivation from a turbo-four engine. Just last week, though, we learned more about the Bronco's .
We heard about the possibility of Ford slapping a manual gearbox in the Bronco two years ago, but the latest report pegs first gear to be a "crawler" gear. That'd give the SUV a slow-speed gear that provides oodles of torque in the process, and it could even forego a two-speed transfer case. Ford didn't return a request for comment on the possible gear, so we'll simply have to wait and see if the rumors pan out.
So, in the meantime, take in the mudding zen as we likely approach a proper Bronco reveal.
