The Wait is (Almost) Over! Ford Set to Reveal 2021 Bronco on July 13
With new vehicle debuts continuing to come quick as automakers make up for re-scheduled motor shows, the 2021 Mustang Mach 1 isn't the only interesting new Ford in the mix. After a long wait and a few delays, Ford has finally confirmed via an Instagram post on its official account that it will unveil the heavily anticipated 2021 Bronco on July 13.
The new Bronco's original debut was originally scheduled for this spring, but the chaos surrounding the Crononavirus pandemic and the resulting factory closures pushed back the new Bronco's unveiling by a few months.
Even with the delay, excitement for the reborn Bronco continues to be high. Recently, the allegedly Ford-supported fan site, The Bronco Nation posted some rather high quality video of '21 Bronco prototypes undergoing some mud testing.
While a some of the Bronco's specs have been leaked or heavily speculated already, there should be a lot to digest when July 13 comes around—including the availability of a seven-speed manual transmission and what sort of engine options will be on the table.
The latest rumors suggest the Bronco will be offered with either a four-cylinder or a V6 EcoBoost engine, and in both two- or four-door body styles.
Not to be forgotten is the smaller, less expensive Ford Bronco Sport which also had its delay pushed back due to the pandemic.
Ford hasn't yet confirmed when it will show the "Baby Bronco" in full, but rumor has production starting in September and a debut to follow the big Bronco pretty closely.
In the meantime, Ford has continued to build the hype, tying-in the new Bronco models with the heritage of the originals from the '60s through the '90s.
While we may have had to wait a little longer than we originally thought, all will be told in just a few weeks' time.
