Find out how long it takes to install the doors and roof on a Ford Bronco

LISTEN 02:17

Ford recently unveiled the Bronco, reviving the nameplate after 25 years, and off-road enthusiasts went wild over its looks and modularity. Just like the original Bronco, the 2021 SUV comes with removable doors and various options for the roof. You can go with either a soft-top or a hard-top that you can remove entirely or have certain panels taken off. But how long does it take to strip the Bronco off and prepare it for an off-road adventure? You can find out in this video from D’Z RIDEZ.

Removing and Installing the Ford Bronco’s Doors and Roof is a Breeze

The folks over at D’Z RIDEZ were invited by Ford to spend half an hour with the brand-new Bronco. That’s not a lot of time with a vehicle of this magnitude, but it’s long enough to see how quickly you put the doors and the roof back on the SUV. And that’s because it takes just a few minutes.


We can clearly see that mounting one door requires about 20 seconds. This means you’ll need less than a minute to put both back. The roof also takes only 25 seconds to attach to the car. Granted, some are quicker than others, and it may take longer at first until you get used to the system, but it will eventually take just two to three minutes to remove all the panels and put them away. And that’s notably quicker compared to a similar operation with the Jeep Wrangler.

The 2021 Bronco is available in both two- and four-door configurations, just like the Jeep Wrangler. Ford offers seven different trims, starting with the bare-bones Base.

Then there’s Big Bend and Black Diamond with extra off-road gear, while Outer Banks focuses on comfort and more convenience features.

Wildtrak and Badlands are also on the wild side, fitted with off-road gear that will take you just about anywhere. The seventh trim is the First Edition, a combination of both comfort and off-road features, and it’s limited to the 2021 model year only.
