The new Ford Bronco is nearly upon us. We’ve seen several spy shots of the upcoming truck out and about, testing both on- and off-road. Now, for the first time, our spy photographer has spotted a two-door version of the new Bronco testing.
We’ve heard rumors as far back as March 2019 Ford would be bringing a two-door variant of the new Bronco to market, but these pictures are the first solid evidence. The camouflage styling, general shape, and fascia look identical to the four-door version our spy photographer spotted in late January, right down to the all-terrain tires. The only differences are the shorter wheelbase and the lack of rear doors.
Our photographer was also able to capture a picture of the underside of this test vehicle, showing a skid plate and the truck’s rear live axle. Like before, it seems the headlights match up to the leaked photo of the cluster that leaked online last year.
The 2021 Ford Bronco is expected to debut sometime in Spring 2020. Seeing a two-door version makes sense—this SUV is expected to be a direct competitor for the Jeep Wrangler, which comes it both two- and four-door variants.
Though nothing’s been confirmed, the Bronco is expected to share a powertrain with the Ranger pickup, since both share a platform. Currently, the Ranger uses a 270-horsepower version of Ford’s 2.3-liter Ecoboost inline-four, getting power to the wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission. There’s also expected to be a hybrid variant, though details on that powertrain are slim.
As we edge closer to the Bronco’s premiere, we expect to see more and more spy shots pop up. Stay tuned.
