The experts at Popular Science know a winner when they see one. That’s exactly what they saw in the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco, set to make its long-awaited arrival at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford in Pittsburgh this summer. The incredible Ford Bronco earned a spot on PopSci’s Best of What’s New 2020 list thanks to, among other things, its standard G.O.A.T. Modes™.
Popular Science calls the Bronco “the truck anyone can off-road,” hinting at its standard 4×4 capability and — of course — Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. Modes™. The Bronco comes standard with five different G.O.A.T. Modes™ for various driving situations, while the top-of-the-line Bronco Badlands™ bumps that number to seven. With settings for Mud/Ruts, Rock Crawl, and Baja, the Bronco Badlands™ is the ultimate off-road SUV for adventure seekers.
But PopSci praised more than this SUV’s off-road prowess: “Even on the street, there’s plenty to appreciate, including doors that come off with just a single bolt and plug, and a manual transmission option for purists.” Add in features like next-gen SYNC® 4 technology and a look that couldn’t be more clearly pulled from Bronco DNA, and you’ve got a winner on multiple levels.
The 2021 Ford Bronco was recently unveiled with an array of segment-leading features and an impressive 4×4 lineup. If you want a new vehicle to accompany you on your adventures off the beaten path, you can’t wrong with this off-road icon.
The 2021 Bronco can conquer any obstacle you come across, thanks to its available best-in-class water fording capability, ground clearance, departure angle and breakover angle. Its Terrain Management System™ comes with up to seven G.O.A.T. Modes™, including Baja, Eco, Mud/Ruts, Normal, Sand, Slippery, Sport and Rock Crawl. As such, the Built Wild™ SUV easily adjusts to its different surroundings.
No shortage of power
Two impressive engine options are offered for the 2021 Bronco, both of which can make for thrilling drives around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost® delivers 270 horsepower and best-in-class standard gas torque of 310 lb-ft. The available 2.7-liter EcoBoost® achieves a best-in-class 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
A durable design
The exterior of the 2021 Bronco has plenty of muscle to hold up in even the harshest of terrains. Available bash plates prevent rocks and other obstacles from damaging the underbody, while available 35-inch tires keep the SUV stable on uneven ground.
