2021 Ford Bronco Debut Will Now Take Place In July: Breaking

The Blue Oval originally announced plans to bring back the Ford Bronco at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. That was over three years ago, so we really can’t blame folks for being a bit frustrated that we’re still waiting for the official Bronco debut.

The Bronco reveal was originally set for this past April, but the COVID-19 pandemic pretty much ruined that. But now, we’ve received confirmation on the true reveal date from The Blue Oval itself. In fact, it wasn’t in any sort of official announcement, but on the Bronco’s official landing page.

Ford has added the script “World Premiere July 2020” directly above the buckin’ Bronco logo, which at least gives us some sort of confirmation. That script used to read “World Premiere Spring 2020,” but was just changed recently. It does mean that Ford won’t be making its self-imposed spring deadline, but it’s pretty close, nonetheless.

After all these years, what’s another month or so? At least we’ve learned a lot about the new Bronco recently, like the fact that it’ll be powered by Ford’s twin-turbo 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine, which Ford Authority exclusively reported earlier this year. We also learned that a Bronco Raptor might follow in 2022 and be powered by Ford’s 3.0L EcoBoost V6.

On the transmission side of things, the Bronco will be available with a brand new seven-speed manual with a granny gear. An automatic transmission will also be available. And as we saw in this cool off-road video, the Bronco is also equipped with the technology needed to pull off a seriously impressive move known as “the dig.”

Both four- and two-door versions will be made available at launch, while a pickup truck variant will follow about 18 months thereafter. Several roof options will also be offered, plus at least two tire packages will be available – one for off-road, and another for on-road use. Additionally, there will be three grille options to choose from, as Ford Authority was first to exclusively report.

We’ll have more on the 2021 Ford Bronco very soon, so be sure to subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.
