After all, Ford set out to revive this iconic SUV because customers and outdoor enthusiasts demanded it.

2021 Ford Bronco Release Date: April 2020


Sources suggest that we’ll get our first full look at the 2021 Ford Bronco during the 2020 New York Auto Show, which will run between April 10 and April 19. This is significantly earlier than past projections, and today, we’re hopeful that the all-new Bronco will arrive at Milwaukee dealerships before the year is out.

With the projected 2020 Ford Bronco release date on the immediate horizon, today’s the perfect day to take a closer look or explore the 2021 Bronco’s colors.

2021 Ford Bronco Preview

Although the 2021 Ford Bronco release date is still months off, your friends at Badger Truck & Auto Group would love to share what we know so far:

  • Body: Most modern SUVs rely on unibody construction. The 2021 Ford Bronco will buck the trend with its own body-on-frame design, although a smaller unibody version (the Ford Bronco Sport) will also be made available. Expect two-door and four-door configurations, as well as removable doors.
  • Platform: The Bronco will arrive as a mid-size, off-road-ready SUV. It will share its basic platform with the Ford Ranger mid-size pickup, which returned to the U.S. market as an all-new model in 2019.
  • Construction: One should hardly be surprised to learn that this Ford SUV will be manufactured here in the U.S.A., at an assembly plant in Wayne, MI which also built the original Bronco from ‘66 to ‘96.
  • Powertrains: We expect the Ford Bronco to come equipped with a traditional gasoline engine, with the 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder setup in the Ranger being the most likely option. Many expect the inclusion of both hybrid and electric powertrains, as well.
  • Towing and Payload: It’s still too early to tell how much this adventure-ready SUV will be able to tow or haul, but we expect to be impressed. After all, the Ranger that it’s based on can tow up to 7,500 pounds when properly equipped.
