2021 Ford Bronco Photographed Under Cover at Michigan Plant, Debut Imminent

Not only does the Bronco preview the next generation of the Ranger – due as a 2022 model with a plug-in hybrid EcoBoost powertrain – but the mid-size SUV is to the liking of Donald Trump. Described as a “great success” and a “big winner” by the President of the United States, the newcomer will be built in Michigan by approximately 2,000 people.

Bronco6G forum member Corsair shared a picture that shows the two siblings together, albeit the off-roader is hidden from sight by a gray cover. Moving on to the Ford Bronco Club of Texas, group member Tyler Green has recently uploaded a photograph of a Ford Performance trailer with the Bronco logo and script on the rear. In other words, the reveal is imminent.

Initially planned to premiere at the New York International Auto Show in April, the 2021 Ford Bronco will enter production in the second half of the year with at least one engine option. A teaser video from the Blue Oval features the unmistakable sound of the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 from the F-150 and Edge ST, a powerplant that’s more than adequate for a mid-size utility vehicle.

In June 2019, photos taken in an auto parts store seemingly confirm the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo that’s standard in the Ranger alongside the 10-speed automatic transmission. Being a competitor to the two- and four-door Jeep Wrangler, the Bronco should come with 4WD as standard.

Expected with no fewer than three grille designs and an active suspension system with G.O.A.T Modes, the body-on-frame SUV won’t be sold in the Old Continent. Neither will the Bronco Sport, a unibody SUV that features the C2 vehicle architecture of the Ford Escape (a.k.a. the Kuga in Europe).

Speaking of the lil’ brother, you won’t like the base engine. The 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder turbo from the Escape is the culprit, joined by the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo and an eight-speed automatic.
