As we creep closer toward the launch of the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco, we’re seeing more and more pre-production prototypes out testing. That includes this 2021 Ford Bronco four-door Black Diamond finished in Race Red, which we just spied driving around with its top removed.
This 2021 Ford Bronco four-door Black Diamond sighting is notable not only for the fact that it isn’t wearing its top but also because almost every prototype we’ve seen so far is another trim level, including a few different Badlands Broncos and even a Lightning Blue First Edition. Almost every prototype has also been fitted with the Sasquatch Package, but that isn’t the case here.
This Black Diamond trim Bronco isn’t a bare-bones model, however, as it is sporting Ford’s heavy-duty modular front bumper and bash plate – which are standard equipment on this trim – but also the optional brush guard.
Moving down the side, this Black Diamond Bronco is wearing the trim’s standard 17-inch black gloss-painted steel wheels that bear a decidedly old school steelie look, which a lot of buyers will undoubtedly enjoy.
Those wheels are wrapped in a set of 32-inch LT265/70R17 all-terrain tires, helping the Black Diamond cement its status as a step up from the Base and Big Bend Bronco for those that want a little more off-road capability from their Blue Oval SUV. Meanwhile, standard rock rails protect the body from jagged obstacles.
A steel rear bumper rounds out the exterior updates to the Black Diamond trim, but there’s much more going on underneath the surface that helps it slot in between the Big Bend and Outer Banks trims in the Bronco lineup.
That includes seven G.O.A.T. modes including Rock Crawl mode and a locking rear differential, which the Big Bend doesn’t offer in its standard guise. Rubberized flooring with drain plugs and standard Marine-Grade vinyl seats make cleaning up the interior after a long day on the trails pretty easy, too.
It will certainly be interesting to see how popular each Ford Bronco trim level proves to be among buyers, but overall, the Black Diamond and its $36,050 base MSRP ($38,545 for the four-door) should make it a popular choice for those who value off-road capability over luxurious amenities.
