Ford is going all guns blazing leading to the unveiling event. From starting an official page on Instagram just a month before its debut to planning long-slot commercials well in advance, Ford is giving the reincarnated moniker the royal treatment it deserves. The planning is so intricate that even the reveal plan for the Bronco is planned well in advance.
According to Bronco6g, Ford will be releasing a teaser showing the silhouette of all the different body types – including the two-door version – of the Bronco on July 6. Not just this; the image that will be posted is also leaked on the forum!
The Bronco Is 2021 Looks Ready To Go Off-Roading!
The teaser shows the four-door Bronco, the Bronco Sport, and the two-door Bronco without the top and the doors.
The drop-top and removable doors option will play a big role in the Bronco’s sales and Ford understands that too. Ford has filed patents for the removable doors and is trying to make the process as simple as possible so that Bronco owners can take them out with ease. In fact, the owners will be able to store the doors inside the SUV instead of leaving them out in the garage. Another good thing here, unlike the Wrangler, is that the wing mirrors will be mounted on the A-pillar instead of the doors so that they stay on the frame even when the doors are taken out.
Another user also tried to work out the dimensions of the two-door Bronco vis-à-vis the two-door Jeep Wrangler. We won’t get into the details of the measurement estimations here and will wait for the official dimensions to be announced. Another post on the forum also gave out the social media teaser schedule. If true, Ford will be releasing the teaser you see here sometime later today.
