The 2021 Ford Bronco is a real-deal off-road SUV and we've finally had a go in it ourselves.
In fact, we drove over a half-dozen different variants over two days of testing at Ford's Bronco Off-Roadeo near Austin. It's an off-road driving school newly open to the public.
Ford's new Bronco has been tailor made to take on the latest Jeep Wrangler and we think it stacks up very favorably.
The Bronco's dashboard is an old-school slab, but it's one that's packed with tech, including an optional 12-inch touchscreen.
Every Bronco comes with G.O.A.T. mode selector -- that stands for Goes Over Any type of Terrain.
Bronco's rear seats are more capacious than the Wrangler and so is the cargo space.
You can't fold the windshield down like a Jeep, but it still feels plenty airy inside, especially with the roof off.
A digital reconfigurable primary display is augmented to the left by a traditional analog speedometer.
This is the range-topping First Edition model, which is loaded to the gunwales with both off-road and luxury gear. Ford will build just 7,000 examples.
The Bronco's already-famous Sasquatch Package is available as an option package that includes 35-inch mud-terrain tires wrapped around 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels, plus skid plates and a slight lift among other equipment.
Those 35s are the biggest tires I've seen fitted to a mass-production SUV. Jeep quickly scrambled to create an equivalent package for its Wrangler. Dubbed Xtreme Recon, it's proof that the 4x4 wars are heating up.
You're going to want those underbody skid plates. Maybe the available rock sliders, too.
LED daytime running lamps come standard.
The 2021 Ford Bronco starts at under $30,000 delivered, but pricing can swell to over $63,000 before options, depending on model trim.
The Bronco brings new levels of cabin tech and refinement to this class. It also drives better on-road than the competition.
