Jeep Enthusiasts From Savvy Off-Road Apparently Tease Ford's Bronco for KOH 2021

Does anyone remember when Ford decided to go for motorsport recognition with the reinvented Bronco and its Bronco R prototype broke down before completing the grueling Baja 1000 race in Mexico? Well, the Blue Oval already set the record straight (at 32 hours) for the 2020 edition, and now we’re getting hints that some races are also in store for the stock off-roader.

While the Bronco R is a completely bespoke, factory-supported affair, we have a feeling that many automotive enthusiasts will take the stock model’s credentials and upgrade them to competition levels once the 2021 Bronco finally starts rolling off the assembly lines.

Even Ford is doing the same, judging by the black 2-Door Bronco teaser from California-based Savvy Off-Road. They somehow managed to snatch two pictures and some footage of the model that’s not supposed to come off the production lines until next year, so we suspect some factory foul play is involved and Ford is at the other end of this prototype.

It’s interesting to note that Savvy Off-Road – a business that prides itself on its involvement with the Jeep community – is hoping for some Blue Oval competition for the 2021 edition of the King of the Hammers (KOH) desert racing and rock crawling race.

That would be pretty neat since we’ve seen Ford do its best to make sure the 2021 Bronco will be up for just about anything when first deliveries finally kick off - officially sometime in summer 2021. On our own, we have seen the off-roader take on the trails of Moab, get down to action on the Rubicon Trail, and even jump around in Warthog high-performance form.

As far as we can tell, the black 2-Door Bronco example that was spotted at the Ranch in HammerTown (Johnson Valley, California) is an Outer Banks-trimmed unit that decided to go top-down for this surprise appearance. We like that, although we can’t say the same about the black paint job, which looks very hard to keep clean in a dusty environment.
