It feels like we’ve been talking about the new Ford Bronco for at least five years now. We are finally getting some real photos on the 2021 Ford Bronco, and it is beautifully boxy.

There are new spy shots of the 2021 Ford Bronco in the wild. Despite being highly camouflaged, you get an idea of the shape of the upcoming SUV. The exciting 4×4 Bronco looks like the offspring of a Mercedes G Wagon and a Jeep Gladiator.

The Land Rover Defender-esque truck is exceptionally blocky and looks much like the square-shaped Bronco from earlier generations. The truck has a full-width grille. Based on the photos, the new Bronco has a possible removable top, but the entire roof is covered up in the spy shots. There are also rumors that the Bronco will have removable doors.

Photos show that the Bronco will have a spare tire on a swing gate in the rear.

The Ford Bronco is supposed to be built on the chassis of the Ford Ranger and will use coil springs for plenty of ground clearance. The truck seen in the spy shots is a four-door model, but there will be a two-door version that looks like a Jeep Wrangler. The Bronco is believed to use the same 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that puts out 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, paired with a 10-speed gearbox that the new Ford Ranger uses.

In November of 2018, the internet leaked pics of the “Baby Bronco.”

The Bronco was first debuted in 1966 and reached iconic popularity in the mid-1990s thanks to O.J. Simpson. The revamped 2021 Ford Bronco is expected to be fully unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in June.
