Excitement for the new Ford Bronco seems to be reaching a fever pitch. We recently got a good look at the Bronco R Baja racer prototype, and the baby Bronco’s grille design appears to have leaked last week. Now the same source of that lil’ Bronco preview, Bronco6G, has taken a shot at giving us yet another peek at the next-gen Bronco—and this time it isn’t with a leaked photo.
The site recently shared a series of renderings illustrated by one of its forum members showing what the 2021 Ford Bronco could look like, and based on our glimpses of design studies and Ford‘s own teaser images, we think they’re pretty spot on. The boxy, two-door design is rendered in sweet-looking matte black paint (and a few other colors) and with its doors and roof removed. In fact, the image of the new Bronco with its various parts removed echoes the upcoming SUV’s removable doors and roof that we reported on last year. Just like the Jeep Wrangler it will no doubt eventually be pitted against, the Ford will be able to strip down nearly naked for off-road adventures.
So, what about the rest of the Bronco forum’s rendering? The 4×4’s proportions are classic, but at least here the Bronco looks a little small. We expect the production model to look quite similar but be physically larger when it launches later this year. The rendering also makes the Bronco look a little toy-like, and if the Baja R is any indication, the full-on Bronco will look significantly more rugged and beefy. The hood, grille, and squared-off rear haunches all look to be spot on, though. There are other renderings on the net, including a couple we’ve done ourselves, that feature similar design cues, and we should note that the Bronco is expected to come in two-door form, as pictured here, as well as in a four-door body style—again, just like the Wrangler it’s aimed at.
We’ll have to wait until later this spring or summer to determine just how accurate these renderings really are, but consider us excited to see the final version. In the meantime, drool over the would-be Broncos in the gallery below.
