The 2021 Ford Bronco has made its rounds in recent months, showing up at all sorts of off-road events and various other gatherings. But to date, no one has had the chance to actually take a spin in the sixth-gen Ford Bronco – until now. Ford has confirmed that at the upcoming King of the Hammers off-road race, which runs from January 22nd-February 6th, attendees will finally get the chance to ride along in the new Bronco, as well as the Ford Bronco Sport.
Those lucky folks won’t get to drive the Bronco, of course, but they will get to sit in the passenger seat for a trail ride experience. The ride will be free for those that have paid for entrance to King of the Hammers, but there are several caveats attendees will need to take into account.
For starters, those interested in participating in the trail ride experience must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test from within 7 days of attendance or documentation that they have already fully recovered from COVID-19. Rapid tests will be available on-site for $20, or those that have been vaccinated can simply bring their proof of vaccination.
Ford did not say which Bronco(s) will be used for the trail ride experience but has announced the lineup of static display vehicles that will attend this year’s King of the Hammers. Those include the Bronco two-door Badlands Trail Rig, the Badlands four-door Area 51 model from Bronco Super Celebration East, the Filson Firecrew Concept, Bronco R racer, the Base two-door Sasquatch last seen at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes last year, a Shadow Black Outer Banks Sasquatch two-door, the Bronco Sport Cyber Orange Trail Rig, and the Rebelle Rally-winning Bronco Sport.
