I’m always intrigued by how the public salivates over a new vehicle that brings with it high expectations that somewhat revolve around a well-known nameplate of the past. The Ford Bronco, a name made all-new again, has a fan following but nothing like it does now since the Bronco has returned to aim directly at Jeep’s Wrangler. After spending a little quality time with Ford’s new bucking horse, I can say with confidence that Jeep has met its match.

SUVs have fundamentally taken over the American landscape of automobiles alongside pickup trucks as the dominating vehicles of choice. Rightfully so, trucks and SUVs bring a lot to the table for their versatility and off-road conquering abilities. The new 2021 Ford Bronco embodies those principles but does it somewhat on its own terms instead of replicating what Jeep as managed to pioneer in the Wrangler for a vehicle that can virtually go anywhere there’s some form of land that you can stand on.

The new Ford Bronco, not to be confused with the smaller Bronco Sport based on a completely different platform, touts a wide range of trim levels and configurations (Bronco Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Badlands, Wildtrak, First Edition – all available in two or four-door) to appease a large audience. The chassis of the new Bronco is quite capable of conquering terrain and still providing a decent ride quality out on the road. My test vehicle of choice was from my local Auto Nation Ford dealership with a unique configuration to keep the price relatively low. What you see is a base Bronco but equipped with just the right options for those who want trail-conquering off-road capability and the powertrain that adds a little extra oomph in the form of Ford’s 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine.
