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?
This Leaked Video Suggests That A Bronco Hybrid Is On The Way!
Yes, there’s more news on the Bronco front. In all honesty, I think this past week should be called the “Bronco Week”. This time, the news is regarding a Bronco Hybrid. A video uploaded by “Input” on their YouTube channel shows the instrument cluster and the SYNC system. In one of the frames, you can see an “EV Coaching” dial. This can only mean that a Bronco hybrid is in the making.
Check Out This Ford Mustang Mach-E Rendered As An Electric Rally Car
Many people still can’t fathom Ford’s decision to slap the Mach-E EV with the Mustang badge. It feels a little sad, but the only way we can get over it is if we see the Mach-E in a different light and convince ourselves that it could get better. Here’s one iteration that will probably make you feel a little better – the Mach-E as a Rally crossover. Abimelec Design has reimagined the Mach-E as an electric rally crossover and it looks quite the part with those big tires and single wiper arm, amongst other things. Do you dig it?
Is the 2021 Ford Bronco’s Interior Waterproof?
With the way Ford was hyping the new Bronco before the launch, it was expected to be an impressive off-roader. However, the company has managed to break all the shackles with this product and it’s turning out to be a big threat for the Jeep Wrangler. Apart from the numerous good-to-have features, the Bronco also comes with some thoughtful niceties that will make the long-term ownership a pleasant one.
One such convenient feature is the washable interior. We’re talking about more than washable floors here, by the way!
Comparing the 2021 Ford Bronco Family - Which is the Right Model For You?
Ford just unveiled the 2021 Bronco,, which marks the return of the iconic nameplate after a 25-year hiatus. The SUV won’t arrive in showrooms until 2021, but you can already place reservations, and Ford has already released details about each and every trim. The 2021 Bronco is available in seven trim levels, most of them named for off-road enthusiasts. The lineup includes Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak, Badlands, and First Edition. The latter is a limited-series launch edition model that won’t be offered beyond 2021. Each trim level features a unique emblem, and it’s equipped for a different purpose. Want to know which Bronco suits you best? Find out below where we look at all seven versions.
Ford Bronco vs. Jeep Wrangler
The highly anticipated Ford Bronco is finally here. Discontinued after five generations in 1996, the Bronco nameplate returned after almost 25 years. That’s big news for SUV enthusiasts, but it’s equally important that Ford finally offers a competitor for the Jeep Wrangler.
The latter is by far the most popular option when it comes to rugged, off-road-ready SUVs, so the Bronco has a very difficult mission upon its return. Does it have what it takes to compete with the Wrangler? Is it better than Jeep’s tried-and-true off-roader? Well, these are questions that will get solid answers once the Bronco starts rolling off the assembly line and we get our hands on one. But until that happens, here’s a thorough comparison that reveals how they stack against each other on paper.
Thanks to Goodyear Tires, the Ford Bronco Is Forced to Carry the Wrangler Name With It
So, there’s no denying the fact that the two- and four-door Ford Bronco were born with the one job of laying waste to the Jeep Wrangler. It’s been a long time coming, and it’s finally happening – the Wrangler now has the strongest competition that it’s had in a long, long time. But, there’s a catch. The new Ford Bronco, when equipped with Goodyear tires, is forced to carry around the Wrangler name. Not just in 1 place, but in 5. How’s that for irony?
2021 Ford Bronco by Saleen
It’s barely been a couple of days since the Bronco was launched but we already have aftermarket tuners pouncing all over it to give it their own twist. The first company to do so is Saleen Automotive. Saleen has already put out a kit for the Bronco that pays tribute to the old Bronco that took the Baja 1000 by storm back in the 70s. There isn’t a lot known about it yet, but from the looks of it, it seems pretty sweet.
6 Things Automakers Could Learn From the 2021 Ford Bronco
The Ford Bronco just returned after 25 years and SUV enthusiasts are going crazy over it. The boxy hauler is heavily based on the original Bronco of the 1960s, it features a pair of powerful engines, and off-road tech that enables it to tackle the mighty Jeep Wrangler.
Ford apparently spent a few good years drawing a plan to dethrone the Wrangler and the 2021 Bronco is a project that many automakers could learn from. Here’s six things that will probably make the Bronco a highly successful SUV.
In recent decades, few Lincolns have been known for excellence. The company has largely settled for making marginally nicer Fords at marginally higher prices. That’s not a bad niche to occupy — for example, recent Lincolns like the MKZ sedan and Nautilus crossover provide comfortable interiors, rich leather, lots of features, and a quiet ride for less money than sportier, more opulent Mercedes-Benz or BMW competitors — but this approach did little for the brand’s prestige.
Now, Lincoln is undergoing a renaissance. New Lincolns do still borrow from Fords mechanically. But starting with the redesigned 2018 Navigator, the brand’s models have been packing a greater visual punch, differentiating themselves from their Ford cousins and from the competition. One of the latest beneficiaries is the new 2020 Lincoln Aviator, a luxury version of the Ford Explorer that Lincoln had last sold in 2005.
The new Aviator stands comfortably apart from the Explorer, sharing its family-friendly seven-seat layout and its new rear-wheel-drive-based platform, but with a unique and eye-catching exterior and interior design. From its striking looks to its standard 400-horsepower engine to a host of thoughtfully executed details, this isn’t a Lincoln that aims for being merely “acceptable” or “pretty good.” Some buyers might wish for sportier handling, a few details could be improved, and our test car’s $76,310 MSRP feels steep. But when you stay closer to the $51,100 base price, the new Aviator is a head-turning combination of performance, seven-passenger seating, and stunning design.
2021 Ford Bronco Sasquatch Package - Making Even the Base Bronco an Extreme Off-Roader
Ford has tried to cater to all kinds of customers with the Bronco. That probably explains why the Bronco Sport came to be – an off-roader that is equally comfortable for weekday duties. If you’ve been following the Bronco carefully, you’ll know how well it is spec’d in terms of off-roading equipment and features. However, they are available in the higher trims which are in the ballpark of $50,000.
But, even if you are looking to buy the base trim and want a Bronco that can handle harsh terrain easily, you should opt for the “Sasquatch Package” that Ford has introduced. The package includes most of the stuff you’d need to convert your bare-bones Bronco into a boulder-carver - even the base model!
