After many leaks and years of speculation, Ford has finally showed off the three 4x4s that will reintroduce the ‘Bronco’ brand. The new Broncos are rugged-type SUVs that come in two-door and four-door configurations. The new vehicles will have removable roof panels and optical 35-inch tires. There will, however, be a ‘smaller sibling’ called the Bronco Sport that will still have off-road capabilities.
Autoblog has a lot of details on the types of engines and transmissions available, and inside the vehicle, there’s actually quite a bit of technology at work. In the larger Bronco SUVs, you get a 12-inch LCD screen that will provide access to the ‘Sync 4’ system, and it will also function as a display for the optional 360-degree camera system. This new camera system is designed to provide a ‘spotter’ view of trail-blazing progress without having to even get out of the vehicle. Unfortunately, Ford didn’t show the public any images outlining how it works, and because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, auto shows are not possible right now.
The new Ford Broncos also feature a built-in off-road navigation system that includes ‘more than 1,000 curated trail maps’ and even some topographic maps that can help guide you down the beaten path.
The smaller and lower cost Bronco Sport comes with ‘Sync 3’ (rather than Sync 4), and only comes with an 8 inch screen. Never-the-less, it’s still capable of working with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Sync 3 features several of Ford Co-Pilot 360 driver assist functions, but it doesn’t have the nicer ‘Active Drive Assist’ technology that is available in the new Ford F-150 and Ford Mach-E. You can reserve your new Bronco today on Ford’s website, and pricing starts at just $29,995 for the base-level two-door Bronco.
