Back in the Saddle: The Blue Oval takes Bronco Prototype for a Test Drive!

While we enthusiastically await the return of the upcoming Ford Bronco 4x4, engineers are hard at work ensuring it is ready to take on the wild. In the high desert of California, Ford experts are busy testing and proving out the all-new Bronco’s powertrain and rugged chassis, which is based on the company’s fully boxed, body-on-frame global T6 architecture, in an experimental prototype vehicle.


 
The video is set in the Mojave Desert’s Johnson Valley, home to such punishing motorsports series as King of the Hammers, where the Bronco prototype is being pushed to its limits off-road in grueling conditions crawling up rocks and racing across sand.
 
Bronco was built exactly for this.
 
The all-new sixth generation of America’s original “sports utility vehicle,” could be making its world premiere this spring.
 


Technically, this means any day between March 19 and June 20, which leaves a very wide window of three months and at least two major auto shows. A report from earlier this month suggested we will see the Bronco at Detroit's North American International Auto Show that runs from June 7 to 20 but it turns out a full reveal could come earlier than expected.
 
Citing “sources familiar with the matter,” FordAuthority claims the sport utility vehicle will make its official debut during the 2020 New York International Auto Show in April this year. The event is scheduled to run between 10 and 19 April, and this perfectly fits the announced spring reveal by the automaker.
 
The exact debut date is not known at the moment, but the publication says, “April 7th and 8th are currently in the running for the reveal date, which can change in the near future.” FordAuthority also says the brand will initially reveal the two- and four-door Bronco off-roader, which will be followed by the so-called baby Bronco later this year.

 


Sales should kick off in late 2020 as a 2021 model and we expect prices to start in the low-to-mid $30,000 range, with plenty of accessories available.
 
The last Bronco Ford produced was in the 1990s. Get ready for the World Premiere of the 2021 Ford Bronco this spring.
