Ford reveal a gang of special beefed-up Broncos
Also the first location for the first Off-Rodeo event dedicated to Bronco owners
The new Ford Bronco has been a massive hit. Or that’s what the American carmaker is claiming it to be. But then, it did receive online orders from 165,000 people, each placing a $100 deposit within the first three weeks of its launch. So, the automaker may be right. And to further showcase its product’s versatility, Ford has come up with five new adventure concepts!
These off-road centric lifestyle concepts are based on both 2-door and 4-door variants which have been released to exhibit the Bronco’s extensive list of over 200 factory-backed accessories. Additionally, the Blue Oval company also announced the site of the first of four Off-Roadeo events being conducted for the Bronco owners starting next summer.
But first, the adventure concepts.
Bronco Four-Door Outer Banks Fishing Guide
Based on the mid-range Outer Banks trim-spec, the Bronco Outer Banks Fishing Guide is for people who like to fish their dinner regularly. To aid the amateur/professional fisher customers, this Bronco comes equipped with hood-mounted fishing rod holder along with a Yakima roof rack.
Bronco Two-Door Trail Rig
People opting for this variant like being either of these things - a hardcore trail rider or a smug-faced Bronco owner who likes to rescue his/her friends stuck in lesser-equipped 4x4s. Aiding the latter is a significantly capable winch to help the needy and a 40-inch LED lightbar to project your arrival as a saviour. Based on the Badland trim package, this two-door variant further deploys a roof rack while incorporating tubular doors as well.
Bronco Sport Trail Rig
This concept would be loved by people who like to have mud over lotion on their skin. As the self-explanatory name suggests, this 4x4 derivative is based on the Badlands series under the Sport model. Thie Sport Trail Rig comes installed with 31-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires, special LED lights and a roof rack with off-road gear mounts designed for recovery boards and jerry cans.
Bronco Sport TOW RZR
If you’re someone who likes to haul stuff around the mud, then look no further than this concept. Again, inspired by the Badlands trim-spec, the TOW RZR comes equipped with crossbars, a cargo basket and a Class II trailer tow package capable of towing an extra 2,200 pounds of cargo. Plus, doesn’t that all-new Polaris RZR XP Turbo (as shown in the picture) looks fun to mess around on?!
Bronco Sport Off-Roadeo Adventure Patrol
This Off-Roadeo Adventure Patrol should be fun for people who like to analyse their playground (outdoors, here) before stepping in and getting their hands dirty. No wonder this concept gets equipped with a roof-installed cargo platform with LED lightbars at the same level. But the distinguishing factor lies on the hood, rather than under it, as it integrates a painted target to land drones, probably used for recon activities. As a matter of fact, it is this Off-Roadeo Adventure Patrol iteration that will assist as a support vehicle at the upcoming Off-Roadeo events organised by Ford Motor Company.
Ford reveals the first off four Off-Roadeo events planned
The American carmaker recently revealed that the hill country of Austin, Texas, will be its first location for its Off-Roadeo event organised for customers. This event stays restricted to owners of the Bronco two-door, four-door and Bronco Sport Badlands series. Ford believes events like these are aimed to build confidence among Bronco owners to go outdoors more often.
“Getting into the wild is at the core of Bronco brand, and our first Bronco Off-Roadeo location in Austin, Texas, will help fuel Bronco fans’ quests for outdoor adventure,” said Mark Grueber, Bronco brand marketing manager. “At each of our four Bronco Off-Roadeo locations, we want owners and enthusiasts – even those who are off-road novices – to have as much fun as off-road pros and we want to provide them with knowledge and experience to make their future Bronco adventures even greater.”
