First 2021 Ford Bronco sells for $1 million, with all proceeds going to charity
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off the first production SUV this past weekend, and the beneficiary will receive a lovely check.
It all started with Gran Turismo. From those early PlayStation days, Sean was drawn to anything with four wheels. Prior to joining the Roadshow team, he was a freelance contributor for Motor Authority, The Car Connection and Green Car Reports. As for what's in the garage, Sean owns a 2016 Chevrolet SS, and yes, it has Holden badges.
The winning bidder will receive the reincarnated Bronco wearing VIN 001, which will be a two-door model. Final colors and specifications will be revealed closer to when production kicks off, though it looks like the car Ford brought for show features the Sasquatch Package with big, fat tires. The deep blue color also looks lovely with the black wheels.
This weekend saw more than just the first Bronco sale. Barrett-Jackson also presided over the sale of the first GMC Hummer EV pickup, which sold for $2.5 million. All proceeds from the hammer price benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The first Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing also found their owners. The first left the auction block with a $165,000 price, while the second sold for $265,000. Their sales benefit Black Ambition, which supports historically Black colleges and universities to provide funds to aspiring entrepreneurs.
