The company has hyped up the new Bronco all the more with these picsby Sidd Dhimaan, on LISTEN 04:21
Ford is doing an excellent job of keeping up with all the hype surrounding the upcoming 2021 Bronco. The SUV is less than two weeks away from its launch and teasers are coming out more frequently.
The company started an Instagram page for the Bronco a couple of days back and has already posted a video where you can hear the Bronco grunting and rumbling on mountainous roads, and now, it has released a set of images showing the SUV’s front end.
Ford Knows How To Keep The Ball Rolling
Let’s run through all the posts the company has published over the last couple of days. In the first set there is one video where the Bronco can be seen playing around on muddy terrain. It comes courtesy of a front-facing camera, thus giving us an occupant’s point-of-view. It doesn’t show the Bronco per se, but you can hear it revving hard while drifting.
In the next set, the Bronco is shown from the front, but only the sides are teased. It shows the wing mirrors, the fenders, wheel arches, wing mirrors, and a teeny bit of the headlights and bumper. The rest of it is swapped with first-gen Bronco. Ford posted this with the caption – “When you bring back a legend, you have to pay your respects to what made that legend so legendary.”
Finally, the latest set shows the Bronco up front. Ford published three posts – two images and one video – that together make for the Bronco’s front-end. The images show the round headlights with LED Daytime Running Lamps that are unmistakably Bronco. In between these headlights is the ‘BRONCO’ branding in letters.
The 10-sec video in this set shows the Bronco’s LED lights come on when the ignition is turned on. You can hear the engine rumble at idle, but Ford has not revealed how the engine would sound when firing it up.
Just like the Mustang, there is no Ford logo here. Not that you need the Blue Oval for any added credibility here, but if you think about it, this is also in line with the news that Ford is planning to make the Bronco its sub-brand. Well, we can ponder over it some other day.
