Blue Oval Delays Ford Bronco Reveal Due to Coronavirus

Like all of us, Ford is also very concerned about Coronavirus. Not only Ford but basically every company in the world. Because of human’s latest enemy, Ford Bronco won’t arrive when is planned. Bronco is one of the main subjects in the automotive world in the last year and a half. There were a lot of rumors, mostly false.

However, things are much clearer now. Leaked photos are showing new Bronco and even Bronco Sport will enter the production. No doubt, Bronco will become an instant hit once it arrives. Moreover, it will be interesting to see the rivalry between Bronco and Jeep Wrangler.

Reveal of The 2021 Ford Bronco Delayed

Some reports predicted this to happen. The virus is going wild across the United States and Europe. All of the sports events, concerts and showrooms are canceled. That means we won’t be seeing the new 2021 Ford Bronco this month.

Fears for the COVID-19 ruined basically everything so we’ll have to wait a little more for the comeback of an iconic Bronco SUV. The official date is not available yet, but most likely it will happen this summer. The event is definitely rescheduled so follow us because we will write about a new date.

Leaked Photos

Ford is refusing to confirm the authenticity of the photos. That is a logical move, but we don’t need Blue Oval’s confirmation anyway. New 2021 Ford Bronco is ready and the photos are looking much real. The SUV comes with a high-quality design of the front fascia. Of course, the most notable part is the removable top.

Most likely, pop-up panels will cover the seats while the rear third will come off in a single piece. If that really happens, Bronco will surely offer a better configuration than the Wrangler SUV. Moreover, the photos of a two-door, four-door and Bronco Sport versions are available. We must say that these photos are everything but Photoshopped.

What About Engine?

According to the latest reports, a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 will power the new 2021 Ford Bronco. This engine is capable of producing up to 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. However, these are the specs from the F-150 pickup truck. We don’t know exact Bronco’s figures. Bronco Sport will most likely ride on a different engine or Blue Oval will offer a powertrain that is optional in regular Bronco.

Interestingly, the Baby Bronco version is also in the works. This variant will be mechanically similar to the Ford Escape. Thanks to that, it could also borrow its three-cylinder with 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Even a 2.0-liter turbo-four is a possibility. New Bronco will most likely use an eight-speed automatic transmission, once it arrives.
