After 25 years out of the game, the Ford Bronco is back and ready for adventure. But after such a long hiatus, both true-blue and brand-new Bronco fans have lingering questions about the newest iteration of this iconic SUV. Today on the PineRidge Ford blog, we’re answering your top Ford Bronco questions about performance, power, tech and more, to help you feel at ease about jumping on the Bronco bandwagon. Buckle up - we’re going for a ride!
Yes, the Ford Bronco can certainly tow! Across all trims and powertrains, the new Bronco is designed to tow up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the Class II Trailer Tow Package (which comes standard on most models). That’s enough guts to easily haul a small RV, a boat, or a toy hauler with snowmobiles or ATVs.
All Ford Bronco models come equipped with an easy-to-remove roof and doors. Whether you’re on a rugged trip through the Saskatchewan backcountry or simply want to feel the summer sun on your skin, Bronco invites the outdoors into your vehicle like never before. It’s important to note that the Ford Bronco Sport does not come with the same removable features across the lineup, but has significant options for roof racks and roof-top storage.
It’s true that there were early delays with the launch of the 2021 Ford Bronco due to production and distribution concerns caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic. But now that we’re welcoming new Bronco inventory on a regular basis, the same can be said for Bronco parts and accessories! In order to protect the integrity of your vehicle, we highly recommend servicing any Ford vehicle with genuine OEM parts at a certified Ford Service Centre, like the one here at PineRidge Ford.
The military-style Ford Bronco was incredibly popular from the 1960s through to the mid-1990s until demand for 2-door “adventure SUVs” declined rapidly. To keep up with customer needs, Ford discontinued the Bronco and replaced it with the 4-door Expedition, which remains a popular full-size SUV today. Renewed interest in rugged off-roaders through the late 2010s was all Ford needed to bring back the buckin’ Bronco!
Current Bronco models top out at 5 seats, with the 4-door models offering ample space for all passengers on board. It’s unclear whether Ford will make the Bronco or Bronco Sport available with 3 rows of seating in the future, but for now, the Ford Expedition is an excellent choice for those who need extra seats.
Ford made it easy to customize your Bronco by offering 6 unique trims: Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Badlands, Outer Banks, and WildTrak. Each model offers a different driving experience, from affordable off-roading capabilities with trims like Big Bend and Black Diamond to the Outer Banks delivering a stylish “off-road chic” vibe to the remarkably rugged WildTrak and its Sasquatch Package. Your PineRidge Ford sales team member will be happy to help you choose the right Ford Bronco model for you.
Ford made two versions of the Bronco for the 2021 comeback: Bronco and Bronco Sport. The Bronco Sport has plenty of iconic Bronco styling, badging and off-roading chops, but is designed with day-to-day driving in mind. It’s built on the same platform as the original Ford Escape and offers a smooth ride, plenty of power, a rugged design, and a host of fun and functional features. The Bronco Sport is an excellent middle-ground for those who need a traditional SUV but want that iconic Bronco styling and performance.
Right here at PineRidge Ford, of course! In fact, we were one of the first Ford retailers in Saskatchewan to secure Bronco inventory early in 2021, and we’re continuing to work hard to bring these exciting SUVs to Meadow Lake drivers. If you don’t see the particular model you’re after in our current inventory, simply reach out to the team and ask about pre-ordering your Bronco.
Ford set out to make the new era Bronco accessible for all drivers. It has a starting MSRP of just $40,499, which includes all the bells and whistles you could ask for. Depending on your budget, you can add on various packages, accessories or even move up to a different trim line. Your Bronco, your budget, your way. Have questions about vehicle financing? Don’t worry, we can help with that too.
