The offroader makes light work of Hell's Revenge.
To prove that the 2021 Ford Bronco's off-roading capabilities isn't just all talk and no show, Ford engineers have been showcasing videos of the rugged SUV tackling some extremely challenging terrain.
We've seen the 2021 Ford Bronco climb sand dunes and even invade Jeep's territory by taking on the 22-mile Rubicon Trail that is regularly used to test Jeep's off-roaders. Now, we get to see how the four-door 2021 Ford Bronco handles the famous 'Escalator' climb on the Hell's Revenge trail in, Moab, Utah, which features some of the most challenging courses off-road enthusiasts will ever face.
Filled with steep climbs and descents and unforgiving rocky terrain, the Escalator climb is a perilously narrow climb through mountain cracks that requires some serious skill to navigate. One wrong move could easily end in disaster - and yet the Ford Bronco makes it look easy. As if successfully navigating this challenging course wasn't already impressive enough, the 2021 Ford Bronco managed to complete the Hell's Revenge Escalator climb both forwards and backwards, as you can see in this new video posted by Bronco Nation.
It's an impressive showcase of the 2021 Ford Bronco's off-road abilities, but it's scary to watch at times - during a particularly tricky section, one of the rear wheels gets fully off the ground.
The climb was performed by Ford engineers who know how to push the Bronco to its limit, so it will be interesting to see how it fares in the hands of enthusiasts brave enough to attempt the climb who aren't affiliated with the Blue Oval automaker.
Unfortunately, it's going to be a long time before off-road enthusiasts will get behind the wheel of the new Bronco. Deliveries for the 2021 Ford Bronco were originally expected to start in April 2021, but have been pushed back until June 2021. With demand exceeding Ford's expectations, some customers may even need to wait until 2022 to receive delivery.
