The Ford Bronco, which will go toe to toe with the Jeep Wrangler, is possibly one of the most anticipated cars of the year, and people are already lining up in their thousands to get hold of one of these iconic modern off-roaders. With the Bronco making its official debut last month, the Ford Bronco First Edition sold out almost immediately, and due to its popularity, Ford has stated that customers will have to wait longer than expected to receive their cars, with deliveries for the new Bronco expected to start in April 2021.
A note on the Ford website states that the delivery target for the two-door and four-door Bronco has moved from April to June 2021. In an interesting tweet made by the Ford Bronco Twitter account, the brand states that there are more four-door reservations than two-doors.
In the survey posted on Twitter, results indicated that 38.2% of reservations were for two-door models, while a massive 61.8% majority said that they had gone for the more practical four-door version. Most commentators were not surprised at all and thought that the sliding front seats would be a deal-breaker for most.
This comes as rumors spread about a Ford Bronco Pickup truck that could make an appearance as soon as 2022. The pickup will most likely only be offered in four-door guise, which further extends the four-door car's dominance.
Whether you go for the two-door or the four-door, the stats will remain the same: in standard form the Bronco will be powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. For those who want more power, Ford will offer the Bronco with a 2.7-liter turbo V6 which produces 310 hp and 400 lb-ft. Power will be channeled to all four wheels through your choice of a ten-speed automatic transmission, or seven-speed manual transmission. The two-door starts at $28,500 plus a $1,495 destination, and the four-door can be expected to cost slightly more.
