On the same day that the Bronco Sport leaks no less.
Ford isn't going to like this. Just hours after the Bronco Sport leaked in full, a leaked image obtained by Full Size Bronco has revealed the 2021 Ford Bronco in full. This is our first look at one of the most hotly anticipated vehicles of 2020. Set to arrive next month at the 2020 New York Auto Show, the Bronco has been leaked sitting in what appears to be Ford's Wayne, Michigan assembly plant where Bronco production should nearly be underway.
Unlike the previously-leaked Bronco Sport, the full-size Bronco isn't just a toughened up crossover. This is an old-school body-on-frame SUV built to do two things: go off-roading, and beat the Jeep Wrangler.
On styling alone, Ford appears to have nailed it. Most of the renderings have turned out to be fairly accurate as the production Bronco sports a boxy shape giving off some serious Wrangler vibes. Aggressive black fenders house massive off-road tires with chunky wheels, giving the Bronco a rough-and-tumble look. Like the Bronco Sport, the big Bronco has its name stretching across the front and previously-leaked photos of the rear end revealed a spare tire mounted on the tailgate. This new image appears to have the spare tire cropped out but we can now see that the Bronco has a side-opening tailgate rather than a traditional one.
A four-door model is shown with a removable soft top, confirming rumors of a removable roof. Ford may also sell the Bronco as a two-door but such a model is not shown here. Other leaked details like six-lug wheels have now been confirmed, so we suspect this leak is the real deal. Power will likely come from the same 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder in the Ranger, producing over 300 horsepower. A manual transmission is also rumored but we may not know for sure until the official the reveal next month.
