There’s no denying that last night’s debut of the 2021 Ford Bronco was a supremely important event, not just for Ford, but for thousands of eager fans who’ve been eagerly awaiting its return. And by all accounts, the new sixth-generation SUV was well worth the 25 year wait. Those folks have a slew of options to choose from, too, with a whopping seven trim levels available. But the best of the best is, without a doubt, the Bronco First Edition.
Limited to just 3,500 examples, the Bronco First Edition sold out within minutes after reservations opened on Monday, July 13th at 8:00 p.m. EDT. The lucky few that secured one of these special Broncos certainly won’t be disappointed, either, because this model has pretty much everything anyone could possibly want from a new Bronco.
For a base price of $59,305, the First Edition Bronco comes standard with virtually every available option, as well as some unique touches. On the exterior, those include a First Edition hood and bodyside graphics, as well as a Shadow Black painted modular hard top with a matching grille and side mirror caps.
The First Edition also comes equipped with the Sasquatch package, which adds 35 inch BSW mud-terrain tires, 17 inch black-painted beadlock capable wheels, Bilstein position sensitive monotube shocks, a 4.70 final drive ratio, and high-clearance fender flares.
Additionally, the Lux Package is standard equipment, which adds Adaptive Cruise Control, a 10-speaker B&O sound system, Evasive Steering Assist, a heated steering wheel, universal garage door opener, two additional front row smart-charging USB ports, a voice-activated touchscreen navigation system, and a wireless charging pad.
The First Edition is powered by Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost V6, which is projected to produce 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. It comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission with Trail Control, as well as Advanced 4×4 with Automatic on Demand Engagement.
Additional standard equipment on the First Edition includes a safari bar, carpeted flooring, and a unique interior featuring leather-trimmed seats with heated front row and a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat.
Locking front and rear differentials and stabilizer bar disconnect are standard as well, as are seven G.O.A.T. driving modes – Normal, ECO, Slippery, Sand, Mud/Ruts, Rock Crawl, and Baja. The First Edition also comes equipped with heavy duty steel bash plates, rock rails, HD modular front and steel rear bumpers, auxiliary switches, Trail Turn Assist, and Trail One-Pedal Driving.
Those looking for the ultimate new version of the Bronco need look no further than the absolutely loaded First Edition. Unfortunately, however, all 3,500 of them were spoken for in a matter of minutes.
