It hasn’t even been a month since The Blue Oval announced the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco, and the reborn off-road SUV is still months away from production. Even so, folks are already dreaming up all kinds of mods, builds and variants. For instance, Saleen has announced plans to build a tuned Bronco as a Baja-ready model, while digital artists the world are creating interesting renderings to whet our imaginations of what could be.
For instance, our friend Abimelec Arellano has dreamed up what you see here – a Baja-inspired Ford Bronco that simply looks cool. It looks every bit as real as the actual vehicle, even though it’s all fantasy.
Abimelec says that he was inspired by the first-generation Bronco that was driven by Rod Hall to a victory in Baja in 1968. The reimagined SUV has a mild lift, wider fender flares, larger wheels and tires, and has had its back seat and tailgate removed to accommodate a spare tire rack.
The blue, white and orange livery is also noteworthy, giving this Baja-inspired Bronco a unique appearance.
A set of KC lights are mounted ahead of the front grille as well as on top of the windshield frame, boosting night driving visibility. Capping off this fantasy is the rendered Bronco’s engine – the supercharged Ford 5.2L Predator V8 from the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
It’s worth noting that FoMoCo fielded its own Baja-capable Bronco racer – the Bronco R. The Blue Oval used the Bronco R to develop the new Bronco’s various suspension and powertrain components. Even so, we’re likely to start seeing teams across all kinds of motorsports events use the new Ford Bronco for use in desert races and other all-terrain events.

I know, I know, another Bronco post? I don’t want to be repetitive but the Bronco is just such a breath of fresh air that I just can’t help thinking about cool stuff to do with it. This concept here is based off the legendary first gen Bronco that Rod Hall drove to victory in Baja in 1968. It’s lifted slightly, massive tires live under the arches, tailgate and back seats are now gone to make room for a spare tire rack and KC lights make sure you can see ahead when Baja goes dark. Oh, and there’s a GT500 engine under the hood. . . . . . . . . #ford #bronco #2021 #fordperformance #performance #gt500 #v8 #supercharged #shelby #custom #offroad #baja #one #thousand #mexico #offroad #4×4 #dirt #3d #render
