What is the Bronco?

The 2021 Ford Bronco is both a revival of a famous nameplate and a highly capable off-road 4x4. After a 20-plus-year absence, this storied SUV has arrived at Ford dealerships boasting the style and spirit of the original 1966 Bronco. On top of that, its plentiful off-road features and on-road manners make it a front-runner against the likes of the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota 4Runner and Land Rover Defender.

Available in two- or food-door variants, the 2021 Bronco is a body-on-frame vehicle like traditionally defined SUVs and most modern pickup trucks. Just don't confuse it with the Bronco Sport. That's an entirely different, smaller and less capable vehicle that's based on the Ford Escape crossover SUV, and we review it separately.

Is the Ford Bronco a good value?

The Bronco is available in six trim levels (not including a limited and fully loaded First Edition) that range from approximately $30,000 to $60,000. Generally, the four-door is a $2,500 upgrade.

While climbing up the trim levels brings the usual perks such as available leather seats and a larger touchscreen, a key advantage to the Bronco is that most off-road equipment is available on all versions. All Broncos feature four-wheel drive with a low range and can be equipped with a steel front bumper and locking front and rear differentials. The latter comes as part of the Sasquatch package, which also adds larger tires, a lifted suspension and more aggressive gearing.

Though some off-road hardware is limited to higher-end versions, the broad availability of the Sasquatch package is attractive in contrast to the Jeep Wrangler — its comparable Rubicon equipment is only available near the top of the model line.

How does the Bronco drive?

Often specialty vehicles come with sacrifices to on-road drivability. Fortunately, this is not a concern with the Bronco. Thanks to an independent front suspension, the Bronco has tight and accurate steering and an agreeable ride.

The standard turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine (300 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque with premium fuel) provides sufficient acceleration whether it's combined with the standard seven-speed manual or the optional 10-speed automatic. The larger and optional turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 (330 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque with premium fuel) makes a satisfying improvement but isn't a necessity.

Though only available with the four-cylinder, the manual transmission is unique in that it has a crawler gear, noted by a "C" on the shift pattern between reverse and first. Sometimes referred to as a "granny" gear, the crawler has a numerically high (or short) ratio that means the engine has to spin far more times to turn the wheels. When combined with a similarly short final drive (or axle ratio) and with low-range engaged, the resulting crawl ratio allows the engine to work even harder at lower vehicle speeds, which improves low-speed off-road maneuvers. Approach a steep hill, ease off the clutch, and the Bronco simply climbs up. It's so slow in this gear that you could release the clutch, get out and walk faster. (Note: Don't do this.)

While the 10-speed automatic can't brag about crawl ratios to the same degree, it remains the one to pick for most buyers. Having 10 gears to pick from allows lots of flexibility, including taller gears for the freeway that reduce engine noise and improve fuel economy. The automatic transmission also includes access to additional technology aids that improve the off-road experience, such as a low-speed off-road cruise control and a clever braking system that improves agility (covered in greater detail below).

How comfortable is the Bronco?

Driving on a trail requires driving to a trail, and the Bronco's comfort means you arrive without fatigue. The steering is easy to keep straight. It has none of the float or tendency to wander, making the Bronco far more confident and relaxing at freeway speeds than the Wrangler.

The nature of a removable roof and frameless windows means you should anticipate some road noise, but it's still easy to hear the radio or maintain a conversation at 70 mph without raising your voice.

The seats are soft and offer generous adjustment ranges, and the large windows provide decent outward views. The hood seems tall, which might make judging overhangs a bit tricky for some people. Fortunately there are tie-downs that sit on the left and right sides of the hood, and they give a good perspective of the fenders' position relative to traffic or the trail.

How's the Bronco's interior?

It's functional and intuitively laid out. But more importantly, it just looks cool. A broad horizontal dash dominates the cabin, with strategically placed and rubberized grab handles that your passengers can use to help keep themselves in place.

It might seem strange at first to see the window and mirror controls located ahead of the center armrest, but it makes sense considering that the doors are easily removed. Frameless windows keep the doors compact, enough so that you can store all four of them in the back. And because the side mirrors are mounted on the hood, they remain in place when the doors are removed. In another welcome touch, Ford has also developed side curtain airbags that hide in the roll bar, a safety addition absent in the Wrangler.

The soft-top and hardtop roofs are also easy to remove. The soft folds back like a convertible's, and the hardtop comes off in large panels. There's no center overhead bar connecting the Bronco's middle roof pillars (the B-pillars) like you have in the Wrangler, so you get an unobstructed view of the sky when you look up. Remove the doors and roof, and the result is just fun.

Some trim levels feature rubberized non-carpeted floors with drain plugs — remove them and you literally see the ground underneath. After a day in the great outdoors, you can hose off the interior in Broncos so equipped. You can also option for carpeted floors as well.

How's the Bronco's tech?

The Bronco's retro styling vibe doesn't mean it's stuck with AM radio and a cassette deck. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration is standard and includes wireless functionality so you can connect up your phone's apps to the touchscreen without having to use a USB cord. The center touchscreen (8-inch standard, 12-inch optional) reacts quickly to inputs and commands.

An optional navigation system features trail recommendations, and the available 360-degree exterior camera system's comprehensive views help when picking the right line on a trail or when parallel parking.

The Bronco features a host of electronic aids for off-road driving. Trail Control functions like a slow-speed cruise control that can be adjusted in 0.5-mph increments. Ford takes it further with Trail One-Pedal Drive, a feature that automatically applies the brakes as you release the gas pedal. Doing so alleviates the need to try to control both pedals simultaneously during tricky maneuvers on rocks, and it's impressive how smoothly the process happens.

Trail Turn Assist is the real highlight. When it's activated, the Bronco applies the brake of the inside rear wheel as you turn the steering. That braking keeps the wheel from turning, which then acts as an anchor point that the entire Bronco pivots around. This not only transforms tight three-point turns on a trail into simple steering movements, but it also acts like a hilarious quasi-donut mode.

Like the Wrangler Rubicon, the Bronco Badlands trim features a front anti-roll bar disconnect. Imagine an off-roading situation where one side of the front suspension is fully compressed while the other front wheel is hanging in the air. Pushing a button in the cabin disconnects the anti-roll bar that connects the two ends, greatly increasing articulation and letting that suspended wheel potentially drop back down to the ground so that it may get traction. The Bronco's advantage is that you can activate the disconnect when the suspension is already under load. The Wrangler's must be activated on flat ground.

While all of these features can be activated independently, the Bronco also has drive modes (Ford calls them GOAT, a callback to one of the original Bronco's code names, for "Goes Over Any Terrain"). Along with varying the stability control and engine response, these also engage the appropriate transfer case setting, diff lock and anti-roll bar disconnect, if equipped.

How's the Bronco's storage and towing?

The Bronco's cargo gate swings out to the passenger side a bit past 90 degrees and stays held in place with a strut. Shutting the door can take some effort, depending on the angle the Bronco is sitting at and whether you have the full-size 35-inch spare tire that comes with the Sasquatch package. With the hardtop, the rear glass folds up and out of the way easily. The rear of the soft top doesn't seem to move up as far, and it needs to be held in place with a prop rod. Considering how easy it is to fold rearward, this may be an acceptable compromise.

With the rear seats up, two-door Broncos offer 22.4 cubic feet of storage space and four-door versions have either 35.6 cubic feet (hardtop) or 38.3 cubes (soft top). That makes the larger Broncos more accommodating than the Wrangler, at 31.7 cubic feet regardless of door number, but less so than the 4Runner at 47.2 cubic feet. The Bronco's cargo area features tie-down points that are cheekily labeled with lassos.

An optional tow package adds a 2-inch Class II receiver and four- and seven-pin connectors, though a trailer brake controller is not available currently. As equipped, most two- and four-door Broncos have a tow rating of 3,500 pounds, which matches the four-door Jeep Wrangler with its optional tow package. (Two-door Wranglers can tow 2,000 pounds.) The Toyota 4Runner offers more capability with a standard receiver hitch and a 5,000-pound rating on all trim levels.

How economical is the Bronco?

The Bronco gets an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in combined city/highway driving with the four-cylinder regardless of transmission, while the automatic-only V6 gets an estimated 19 mpg combined. When the Bronco's equipped with the Sasquatch package, the figures drop to 18 mpg and 17 mpg for the four- and six-cylinder engines, respectively. These figures are slightly lower than the Wrangler's estimates with comparable engines and equipment, but they're generally better than those for the Toyota 4Runner.

EdmundsEdmunds says

The 2021 Ford Bronco is the real deal. It delivers strong off-road performance and technology along with superior on-road refinement versus its rivals. Its wealth of configurations, both from the factory and in accessories, allows owners to tailor theirs as they see fit. Combine all this with fantastic styling and you end up with one highly desirable package.

5/5 stars, We Said Goodbye Jeep Hello Bronco
Badlands 4dr SUV 4WD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 7M)
We have owned two jeep wranglers and both were great vehicles. We explored places from the desert to the mountains, took family trips etc. anyone who has owned a jeep knows the pros and cons. And the list on both sides is long. When Ford announced the Bronco we reserved right away. We just took possession of the Ford Bronco Badlands. And, after a few days of ownership we are very impressed, surprised and so far the Bronco wins in every way over the Jeep. Highlights: 1. It’s comfortable in the front seats and backseats . Hands down amazingly more comfortable compared to jeep. You can actually ride in this vehicle for hours without being miserably uncomfortable. 2. Space is perfect in front and back. It’s slightly more spacious than the Jeep Wrangler and instead of feeling crammed in can there is proper spacing that makes it very comfortable. 3. Suspension and ride is great. Compared to the Jeep it blows jeep out of the water. Driving on various road conditions is superior and comfortable. 4. Drive: if you have driven a jeep say goodbye to death wobble or a vehicle that sounds like it’s dying passed 72mph … in the new bronco you can comfortably drive 80 mph or more if wanted and the vehicle doesn’t have hood wobbles, sound like engine is maxed or struggling on the highway. You might actually enjoy road-trips versus feeding the drive to the off-road destination. Storage: about same as wrangler it is more than adequate for vehicle type. Interior style: modern and simple. I think they nailed it. It’s not overly futuristic and not some cheesy retro play. It fits the times and looks timeless . Tech: awesome. The base modem stereos and tech and better than what comes on Jeep Wrangler in so many ways. But the upgraded tech available is far better. Ford did a great job of providing good technology options and audio . Thank you! Engine - everyone will have a preference. We chose the 4 cylinder and let’s just start by saying if I line up at a red light with a Jeep Wrangler we will blow it out of the water leaving it far behind all the way to 80mph . 300 hp with turbo. I’m sure the v6 is even better but the 4 cylinder is responsive, quick, and has no real lag. Hands down beats the wrangler. Roof options: we orders hard top and all aware of the delay. So ended up with soft top. Its growing on us and with windows popped out it’s actually very cool. When it’s open it’s amazing to have full roof open. TBD if we end up loving the soft top. Recommendation- invest in the upgraded stereo or plan to do so aftermarket. The base stereo tech is good but speakers and amplifier will make you wanting more. Ford offers a great upgrade to make it easy and it’s worth it . This is my first vehicle review. Felt compelled to share out first take. While we have been multi jeep owners, at this moment I don’t believe we will ever go back. The ford Bronco badlands is a superior vehicle in all the ways that matter for us as a family.

MARK TAKAHASHI: Subcompact or extra small SUVs are rapidly gaining popularity among shoppers, and it makes perfect sense. Most drivers aren't willing to give up the elevated ride height and greater view of the road once they've experienced driving one. But not everyone needs something as big as a Suburban or even a CRV. The newer class of pint-sized SUVs benefit from a sedan-sized footprint that makes them easy to maneuver and park while also returning strong fuel economy. They also provide a much bigger and more flexible cargo area than the typical sedan. They're not the best choice for growing families, but they're great for almost everyone else, from first-time drivers to empty-nesters. Before we tear through the list, do us a favor. Hit like and subscribe below and head over to edmunds.com/sellmycar to get a cash offer on your vehicle. Here then are the best subcompact crossover SUVs that have made it through Edmunds' exhaustive evaluations that include track testing and real-world driving. Whether you're looking for something basic or luxurious, we've got you covered. We're starting with the best here. As we're filming this in July, 2021, we rank the Chevy Trailblazer as the best subcompact crossover. Like any of the vehicles in this class, it's easy to drive and packed with features. The Trailblazer further distinguishes itself with sharp Camero-like styling and positively spacious rear seats. It's not particularly quick, even with a more powerful 1.3-liter engine upgrade. Handling is pretty far from what we consider inspiring, too. But then again, most shoppers aren't really looking for something sporty in this segment. For them, the Trailblazer would be more than adequate. This new Trailblazer easily exceeded expectations, and we're confident you'll be just as pleasantly surprised by how good it is. In a very close second place is the Mazda CX-30. Not only does it stand out from the rest with its sleek style, but it continues to impress with an interior that rivals some luxury brands. What's better, it's way more fun to drive. The base engine gets the CX-30 to 60 miles an hour in nine seconds, which is a little quicker than average, while the new turbo-charge option gets you there in only 6.4 seconds. That makes it the quickest in the class. It's also a Mazda, which means it handles the curves better than rivals, yet the ride quality remains calm and comfortable. Drawbacks are few, forgiveable, and includes some big blind spots and below-average fuel economy. Frankly, it's been a while since Buick has been in a best of list. But it's good to see them back with the Encore GX. Considering it's related to the top Chevy Trailblazer, it makes perfect sense. It's in a numerical tie with the Mazda, bolstered by similar levels of sporty handling, ride comfort, and appealing style. It further benefits from a slightly larger cargo space, but it's held back by its loud engine, noticeable road noise, and thick roof pillars that make it hard to see out the back. It can also be a little more expensive than others in this class. The Hyundai Kona is right in there with an equally impressive Edmunds' rating score. Like the CX-30, it has a punchy turbo engine option, and it's perfectly at home on a twisty mountain road. As with most Hyundais, the Kona earns more points for value as you get a lot of features for the money as well as the longest warranty coverage in the industry. It's pretty likely that the Kona could meet or beat the Mazda with a stronger base engine and smoother shifts in the turbo's transmission. It also gets knocked for the abundance of hard plastics inside and smaller rear passenger and cargo space. And finally the Subaru Crosstrek isn't easy. Is it a wagon, a hatchback, a subcompact crossover? Whatever you call it, it's in a three-way tie for second place with the Buick and Hyundai. The Crosstrek sets itself apart from the rest with taller ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive, giving it greater abilities off-road or in nasty weather. We also like it for its spacious rear seats and comfortable ride. The base engine is pretty weak, but a new larger and more powerful 182-horsepower engine in the top trends should solve that. There's quite a bit of body roll when taking turns, though, and the cargo capacity is on the small side. Let's say you're looking for something a little nicer than the very fine Mazda. That's where we get into the luxury class of subcompacts. They offer all the same driving and convenience advantages of previous picks but step it up with more refined interiors, newer tech, and added prestige, for a price, of course. The GLB class is relatively new on the scene, but it made a big impact. It debuted as our top pick in the subcompact luxury SUV class, due in no small part to its spacious interior, decent performance, and high levels of comfort. It's also packed with tech, including the praiseworthy MBUX infotainment system. We also like the GLB for its rugged boxy shape that reminds us of the big G-class that resides on the other side of the pricing scale. I like to call it the lower case g-wagon. It is still a Mercedes, though, which means the price can easily spiral out of control when you start adding options. The standard GLB-250 is very competent but isn't all that exciting to drive. The good news is there's an AMG version with 302 horsepower that should easily correct that. If you're seeking a sporty counterpart to the competent GLB without spending another $10,000 for the AMG version, perhaps you should check out the BMW X1. On paper, the X1's 27.1-cubic-foot cargo capacity beats the GLB by about five cubic feet. But that includes the underfloor area that is usually where the spare tire is. With more realistic above-floor usage, the GLB pulls ahead thanks to its boxy shape that can accept bulkier objects. The X1's sporty handling will keep spirited drivers happy on a twisty mountain pass and the potent turbocharged engine has more than enough power. It'll reach 60 miles an hour in 6.4 seconds, which is only 1/10 ahead of the GLB, but the BMW's sharper responses make it feel quicker. The drawback to that sporty handling is a stiffer ride quality. Remember the first-generation Mercedes GLA that debuted back in 2015? Well, forget about that one because it was terrible. This new one is great, though. Why? Because it's pretty much the same as a class-leading GLB. But instead of a boxy throwback silhouette, it has a sleeker, tapered body. That shape results in reduced rear headroom and quite a bit less cargo space, about 1/3 less than the GLB actually. With only 15.4 cubic feet, that capacity is about what we expect from smaller sedans. Otherwise, the GLA delivers the same experience as the GLB, with decent performance, high scores for comfort, a great infotainment system, and a powerful AMG variant with an overly stiff suspension. If boxy isn't your thing, the GLA might be a good compromise. Rounding out the German luxury trinity is the Audi Q3, which like the others is loaded with all the latest tech and features a refined interior. It's not terribly fun to drive, though, as it takes 7.8 seconds to reach 60 miles an hour, making it one of the slower picks in the class. On top of that, it also misses the mark slightly when it comes to fuel economy. The responsive steering and composed handling allow the Q3 to handle curves with confidence. But if you're hoping for something sporty, let's stick with the BMW X1. Closing out the luxury subcompacts is one of my favorites, the Volvo XC40. This funky futuristic alternative is big on design and clever features. And since it's a Volvo, safety plays a key role. I'm particularly a fan of the many storage solutions the designers built into the XC40. There's a hook that flips out from the glove box to hold bags, a handy little waste bin in the center console, and one of the most versatile cargo areas around. It could use some suspension tweaks to improve handling, though, and the infotainment system isn't nearly as intuitive as the ones found in its German rivals. Well, that's it for our current list of the best subcompact crossover SUVs. During the course of the year, these rankings may change with the introduction of newer models. So remember to check out edmunds.com for all the latest news, reviews, and information. Thanks for watching and don't forget to hit the like and subscribe buttons below.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Ford Bronco?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
