It's expensive but, we would argue, well worth the investment.
Since the rugged new off-roader's official unveiling last month, Ford has kept a tight lid on pricing info for the new 2021 Ford Bronco - the first Bronco in more than two decades. That didn't stop some pricing details from leaking, however; last month, a comprehensive 2021 Bronco price list leaked online, revealing the MSRP and dealer invoice of each and every trim level, from the $28,500 two-door Base 4x4 all the way up to the $63,500 four-door First Edition model.
That list didn't include pricing for all the Bronco's many optional extras, however. Yet thanks to an apparent slip-up in a survey sent to Ford Bronco reservation holders, revealed by Bronco6G, we now know the answer to one of the most burning Bronco-related questions of our time: How much for the hardcore Sasquatch Package?
The answer, according to Bronco6G, is $5,000. For the money, you get black-painted 17" beadlock-capable wheels, 35" mud-terrain tires, electronic-locking axles, a high-clearance suspension, 4.7:1 final drive, and position-sensitive Bilstein dampers. It's the quickest way to go from off-road-capable to trail-conquering legend, although it isn't available on every trim, and most notably, Ford says, it's "currently not available with [a] manual transmission" - something that's irked some purists.
The survey sent to Bronco reservation holders also appears to include pricing for myriad other options. We now know, for example, that on models where the 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder and seven-speed manual come standard, stepping up to Ford's 10-speed automatic transmission will cost a not-insignificant $1,600. On those models, the 2.7L engine with ten-speed auto is a $3,500 upgrade, or a $1,600 option on the Outer Banks model, where a 2.3L/ten-speed combo is standard.
Poking through the rest of the price list, it appears that Ford is fixing to charge $600 for the optional Towing Package and $400 for a Roof Rack with Rails and Crossbars. Hard tops run from $700 for a molded one to $1,900 for a modular, and the Modular Front Bumper, where available, will cost $800. That heavy-duty bumper provides some extra protection off-road, along with mounting provisions for a winch and auxiliary lighting.
Of course, take all this with a grain of salt; until Ford launches an official Build & Price tool for the 2021 Ford Bronco, we regard these prices as subject-to-change. Assuming they're accurate, however, it looks like it needn't cost an arm and a leg to get just the Bronco you want.
