2021 Ford Bronco Two-Door Caught Playing in the Snow
Drifting, Getting Air, and Just Generally Being Awesome
We're already pretty sure the 2021 Ford Bronco two-door is going to be an exciting thing to drive when the trail gets muddy, but this latest batch of spy shots has us all the more impatient to drive it. Spotted playing in the snow, this Bronco two-door looks like it's being driven by someone who's having the time of their life.
Sporty Bronco Two-Door, Sporty Performance
The 2021 Ford Bronco two-door is likely to be the most responsive and capable variant of the lineup, owing to its shorter wheelbase and resultant improved breakover angle and turning radius. The model seen here is wearing heavy camouflage on the rear roof, likely hiding a removable hardtop or a folding soft top, a la Jeep Wrangler. The spy vehicle also clearly features A-pillar-mounted sideview mirrors, meaning removable doors are a distinct possibility.
It is also wearing tires with an aggressive tread patternâironically Wrangler-branded Goodyear tires. It's not certain whether these will be factory-spec tires on all Broncos or only for certain trims (or for that matter, if this is a one-off tire fitment for maximum snow traction). A closeup underbody shot also betrays a comprehensive set of skid plates, and the wheels look to be beadlock-capable. A tow loop in the rear protects the license plate.
We can also make out a few key features, including an array of sensors and cameras in the windshield that enable automated emergency braking (and likely adaptive cruise control). That's unsurprising given Ford's aspiration to include active safety on all of its cars, trucks, and SUVs.
When Will We See the Bronco in Full?
The 2021 Ford Bronco is close to making its full debut. Our best guess is that it will be unveiled at the 2020 New York International Auto Show in April; we'd also hedge our bets on the 2020 North American International Auto Show in June, taking place in Detroit. Nevertheless, with stalwart competitors like the Jeep Wrangler and legendary sequels like the Land Rover Defender making all kinds of waves, it's only a matter of time before Ford stops teasing us.
