The two-door and four-door Bronco can be seen in action testing their mettleby Sidd Dhimaan, on
We saw the Bronco’s debut digitally, and it has garnered a lot of attention since it was launched. But, being an off-roader, enthusiasts want to see it take on rocks, boulders and the less-beaten paths. Well, now you can. Bronco6g.com uploaded three videos on its YouTube channel that shows the four-door and two-door Broncos on a hardcore off-road trail. This is a glimpse of what to expect from the Ford Bronco when it is in its comfort zone.
Both The Broncos Are Looking At Home On These Trails
The videos show black pre-production prototypes traversing on the Rubicon trail - one of the most hardcore off-road trails there is.
Both models are in the Badlands spec. The four-door model is mated to the seven-speed manual transmission. The ride on the 33-inch optional Goodyear Mud-Terrain tires wrapped around Beadlock wheels. The two-door prototype, on the other hand, has an automatic transmission. It rides on standard Badlands wheels wrapped in 33-inch BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires. This model is also equipped with the steel front bumper.
The four-door model has a soft top and the front doors are removed, whereas the two-door prototype is seen without the doors and the rear section of the roof. Neither of these Broncos is equipped with the Sasquatch Package. The four-door manual-gearbox prototype seen here, of course, can’t be had with the package, but even the two-door automatic is seen without it. For the uninitiated, the Sasquatch package comes with:
- 1.2-inch Suspension Lift-Kit
- Higher-Mounted Fender Flares
- 17-inch Beadlock-Compatible Wheels
- 35-inch Mud-Terrain Tires
- Front and Rear Locking Axles
- An Electromechanical Transfer Case
- Heavy-Duty Position-Sensitive Bilstein Shocks
- Shorter Final Drive Ratio
So, it must be noted that this off-roader is not traversing these paths to its full potential.
The package can be had on any trim and comes standard with the Wildtrak and First Edition trims. However, there’s a catch. The Sasquatch package can only be had with the automatic transmission. If you were thinking of a manual Bronco with the Sasquatch package, well, you’ll have to marry one and kill one!
This is all part of Ford’s testing as you can see the co-passenger working on the laptop in the two-door prototype while on the trail. Since the off-roader is at least a year away, the automaker still has time to sort out all the glitches, if there are any. We won’t spoil the action for you. So, check out all the three videos and see how the Bronco performs on the Rubicon Trail, and share your thoughts in the comments section below.
