To date, we’ve seen a number of CGI/simulated pictures of the 2021 Ford Bronco digital instrument panel. But what we haven’t seen is a real, up-close picture of it, until now. These excellent photos come to us courtesy of the Instagram page Utah Bronco, which recently captured them at night, which gives us a great look at how the new Bronco digital instrument panel looks.
There’s quite a bit going on in the panel itself, starting with a traditional, round speedometer dial on the left with an engine temperature gauge located near the bottom. The incremental speed indicators light up blue, much like the digital instrument panel itself.
Speaking of that digital display, it consists of a large rectangle with rounded edges. In the upper left hand corner, there’s a bucking Bronco logo. The inside contains a host of valuable information, including a fuel gauge above the range remaining. Next, we see a digital representation of the Ford Bronco itself. One particularly nifty feature present is the fact that the headlights are on, just as they are on the vehicle itself, which provides a nice, quick visual confirmation of that fact.
Moving over to the right, we see a digital speed indicator, which has warning lights below it. The warnings lit on this particular Bronco indicate that the door is open and the seat belt is not fastened. To the right of that is a compass and the current temperature, a tachometer, and odometer.
There are additional warning lights to the right of the center display, and in this case, the airbag, parking brake, and headlight on lights are illuminated. There’s also one photo of the infotainment screen, which in this case is the larger 12-inch SYNC 4 system that’s capable of receiving over-the-air-updates.
The system also works with the FordPass Performance app with off-road navigation, which allows owners to plan, navigate, and share their off-road adventures. The SYNC system displays the available 360-degree camera system with off-road spotter views to provide additional visibility in technical pursuits such as rock crawling.
