The new Ford Bronco will be launched in America in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The Ford Bronco has made quite a wave in the U.S. market. Since its unveil last month on July 14, Ford has bagged over 1,50,000 bookings for the new Bronco. While giving insight on its quarterly earnings last week, executives at Ford said that the company had more than 150,000 reservations for the new Bronco, which launches in the fourth quarter. In fact, that number was above internal expectations and Ford is working to increase production further, including possibly adding another shift at a plant.

The removable panels in both four-door and two-door variants make the Bronco highly customisable and suitable for outdoors.

It definitely looks fresh and has been design from scratch, but certain elements have been intentionally kept similar to its predecessor. It has borrowed quite a few design cues from the past models like the circular headlamps and bold Bronco lettering on the grille. Then the silhouette and outline will instantaneously remind you of the previous Bronco, just that this one has grown in size.

The 2021 Ford Bronco borrows several design cues from the previous model.

The new Ford Bronco helps the American carmaker tap an immensely popular- lifestyle SUV segment in America, taking on the likes of the mighty Jeep Wrangler and Land Rover Defender. The Ford Bronco too will be offered in two-door and four-door variants like its counterparts while there will be a Sport avatar as well, just like we have seen on the Wrangler Rubicon. It also gets the Sasquatch pack that adds a host of off-road features like 35-inch tyres on 17-inch beadlock wheels to an upgraded off-road suspension and front and rear locking differentials.
