Ford Looked to its Past With Modern Tech to Make the 2021 Ford Bronco
Now, you might look at the Ford Bronco Sport and say, “that’s not a real Bronco,” but you’d be out of your mind if you said the same for the 2- or 4-door Bronco. There are so many subtle and obvious hints that the 2021 Ford Bronco carries around 50-year-old DNA. There might not be an overabundance of it, but that’s a good thing. Now, we’re learning that Ford actually 3D scanned an original Bronco to give engineers a firm starting point. Did it work? You bet your ass it did.
The Most Expensive Mustang Is Now a 1965 Shelby GT350R With a Price of $3.85 Million
The first-generation Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic cars ever built, and for a 60-year-old classic it isn’t very expensive. You can buy several models for less than $100,000 and the rare versions aren’t as expensive as the Ferraris from the era, which are known to cost from as low as $5 million to as much as $50 million.
But some Mustangs can cost millions of dollars. Up until now, Steve McQueen’s Mustang from the Bullitt movie was the most expensive, having been auctioned off for $3.74 million in January 2020. Come July and that record has been surpassed by another Mustang from the era. The prototype version of the 1965 Shelby GT350R just crossed the block for $3.85 million, $14K more than McQueen’s green ’Stang.
Your $60,000 2021 Ford Bronco First Edition Isn’t So Special Anymore
The 2021 Ford Bronco was met with a lot of excitement during its digital debut. Not everybody was happy, with the most common complaint seeming to be that there’s no option for a V-8. But, that didn’t stop Ford’s pre-order portal from being overloaded or the First-Edition from being sold out within a matter of hours. That First Edition trim is what we’re going to talk about today, or to be more specific, we’re going to talk about how Ford just upped the production cap from 3,500 to 7,000, making it a little less special in the process.
A Handful of Renderings Imagines the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor in Different Colors
Ford came out all guns blazing with the new Bronco. The automaker has created the ultimate off-roader that checks all the boxes; well, almost all. The two things that we purists would’ve wanted – which we could receive some time in the future perhaps – are a V-8 engine and a Raptor treatment. These vacuums are already filled by aftermarket companies and rendering artists to give us a taste of what to expect when the real deal comes out.
We saw a rendering of a two-door Bronco Sport Raptor earlier this week, but now we have a rendering of the four-door Bronco Raptor in four different shades, courtesy of Oscar V from Concept Autos. The changes are subtle yet noticeable, and we are impressed.
Building the Mustang Mach-E 1400 Was More About Learning Than Being Cool
Ever since Ford introduced the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 all-electric Mustang, which was essentially a potent electric drag car, we’ve been itching for a performance-oriented Mustang EV to be born. We got as close as the Mustang Mach-E which is, as far as I’m concerned, not a Mustang, but that has been the extent of it. Then, almost out of nowhere, Ford threw us a bone in the Mustang Mach-E 1400. It’s still not a proper Mustang, but it features 1400 horsepower just like the Cobra Jet 1400, and it’s one mean electric machine. Despite its ability to eat tires like I eat cookies, the purpose of the Mach-E 1400 was to help Ford learn while showcasing what the company is capable of.
A New Leaked Image All But Confirms the Ford Maverick Pickup Truck
The ‘Maverick’ moniker has been in news ever since the Bronco news started surfacing the internet. Back then, there were rumors that it could be used for the entry-level trim or a special edition of the off-roader. But, a couple of months back, a 3-D image of a truck’s tailgate with ‘Maverick’ embossed on it started doing rounds. Now, Motor1 has received another image from an anonymous source that has ‘Maverick’ stamped on it. Does this confirm a new pickup truck from the Blue Oval?
With 1,400 Horsepower, The Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 Is Useless But Awesome
Ford is on a hot streak lately and it seems like nothing can go wrong for the company. Running high on the Bronco’s launch success, the Blue Oval has carried over the momentum to its electric steed – the Mustang Mach-E – by unveiling a performance prototype of its EV. This Mustang churns out a massive 1,400 horses and features seven motors in total! How about that!
We’d Like to Nominate this 1939 Ford Ragtop Restomod as the Car of the Year
Call it a restomod, call it a hot rod, this 1939 Ford Convertible is certainly a head-turner that packs a variety of cutting-edge mechanical solutions including an independent rear suspension and a huge, meaty engine crammed under that classic "alligator" hood.
You can tell this no longer is a stock ’39 Ford as it rolls on new, chromed wheels hugged by low-profile tires that completely change the stance of the vehicle and then there’s the lower-than-usual windshield. In short, this is a modified car that covers all the bases.
2021 Ford Bronco vs The Original Bronco
Ford revived the Bronco for the 2021 model year and brought the iconic nameplate back on the market after 25 years. And even though it had five generations to consider, four of which competed in the full-size segment, Ford opted to design the 2021 Bronco as a spiritual successor to the original compact SUV.
The sixth-gen hauler is clearly inspired by the first Bronco that was unveiled in 1965, with the most notable difference being a four-door version for the modern SUV. Granted, these vehicles arrived 55 years apart so they’re radically different when it comes to interior features, technology, and powerplants, but the 2021 Bronco is a cool tribute to the original SUV on the surface. So let’s find out what makes them similar and what sets them apart.
Awesome Car for Sale: Ultra-Rare 1985 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth
The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth has been rising in popularity over these last few years to the point that some ultra-clean examples have traded hands for over $120,000 and this may become one of the most expensive examples ever sold.
That’s because this blue Cossie is the last remaining road-legal survivor of a batch of 10 pre-production cars made by Ford to test and tune what would become one of the most legendary cars ever to be adorned by the FoMoCo badge. Those 204 horses may not seem like much today but we’ll assure you the towering rear wing is bound to turn more heads today than many modern sports cars.
Does This Two-Door Ford Bronco Sport Raptor Deserve to be Built?
It’s been just a week since Ford pulled the Bronco out of the box, but we just can’t seem to catch a break from all the renderings. We’ve seen the Bronco reimagined as the erstwhile Big Oly by Saleen and even as a 6x6 pickup truck! This time, it’s the Bronco Sport’s turn to get a virtual makeover.
KDesign has transformed the Bronco Sport into a two-door SUV in the standard form and with a Raptor-twist. While both seem out of scope at this point as production vehicles, there’s no denying that this whacky build could see the light of the day at some tuner’s workshop in the future.
Sad the 2021 Ford Bronco Isn’t Offered With a V-8? PaxPower Has Your Back!
Ford is not offering the 2021 Bronco with a V-8 and it is stinging some people. The fact that Jeep announced a V-8 Wrangler just before the Bronco’s launch added to the misery. We expected aftermarket companies to pounce on this opportunity, but this soon? Houston-based PaxPower has already announced a V-8 Bronco. The tuner will plonk Ford’s V-8 Coyote engine and offer it in two iterations - 400 horses and 758 horses. Exciting enough?
