Just a few days before the 2021 Ford Bronco was revealed last summer, FoMoCo announced that it was going to host an off-road driving school dubbed Bronco Off-Roadeo in four different cities across the U.S. and that all Ford Bronco Sport Badlands, Bronco Sport First Edition, and Ford Bronco buyers would get free admission to the experience with their vehicle purchase. Those cities have since been announced, and now we know when Bronco Off-Roadeo registration opens up, too.
Ford Bronco Off-Roadeo registration begins on April 27th at 12 pm EDT, and owners can sign up by heading over here. As we reported yesterday, those holding a 2021 Bronco order began receiving their “scheduled for production emails today,” and an invitation to the Off-Roadeo is included in that email, along with the Bronco’s VIN number and build date.
Ford will also release more information about the Bronco Off-Roadeo on the 27th, which will hopefully include the exact locations and dates. As we reported earlier this week, a ski resort reportedly chosen to host the Vermont Off-Roadeo has backed out of the event after nearby residents complained. However, Jalopnik reached out to Ford and was told by the automaker that it has not yet confirmed any Off-Roadeo locations.
Ford says that the Bronco Off-Roadeo is geared toward both beginners and experienced off-roaders, and all participants will get to drive a Bronco supplied by Ford. That way, they won’t have to worry about scratching up their new ride. Attendees will also get to learn from experts who can teach them both proper off-roading techniques, but also all about the many cool features present in the new Bronco, like its stabilizer bar disconnect and G.O.A.T. modes.
Owners will have up to one calendar year from the date of delivery to register for and attend the event, which is free for eligible owners minus the cost of lodging, travel, and a registration and processing fee.
