Ford continues to share sneak-peak images of the 2021 Bronco right before its debut, leaving little to the imagination once the model actually arrives.
Based on new photos shared by online publication Car and Driver, the revived Bronco is getting a large touchscreen, which features a row of control buttons and six toggle switches above it. The switches are apparently intended to support additional exterior lighting and other accessories in the SUV. A “Bronco” script is also seen running across the dashboard of the vehicle.
Moreover, the large touchscreen comes with two large air vents powered by Ford’s Sync4 infotainment system. Just above it is a smaller screen for traction control, multiple differential lockers, as well as a drive-mode indicator.
Behind the new Bronco’s gear selector, there will also be rotary knob for what could be the automaker’s terrain management system. This control knob will allow drivers to switch between various driving modes while on the move.
As the new images suggest, there’s no denying the returning Bronco will be a serious off-roader that will compete with the Jeep Wrangler. Moreover, aside from the regular SUV trim, the model is said to be getting an off-road-focused trim complete with off-road tires, a lifted suspension, and flared fenders. This variant is expected to be an FX4.
According to an earlier report from Automotive News, the upcoming Bronco will be equipped with more than 150 accessories. Some of these are likely going to be what the six toggle switches are for.
The Bronco SUV and the smaller Bronco Sport are due for their official debut on Monday, July 13.
