Our New Bronco is Built Different
Built, Priced, and Ready to Rock.
The new Bronco is coming to John Vance Auto Group in Oklahoma, and we can’t stop messing around with all the different options at our disposal…
Below are some of our favorite features and options, ultimately resulting in a mis-matched but very fun new Bronco build.
Obviously we went with the two-door, as that’s the pinnacle of cool, and most resembles the two-door Jeep Wrangler we know and love.
While there is no “wrong” way to build out your Bronco, we think the Badlands is a great place to start.
We’re a sucker for any retro colors, but we especially love the classic, understated look bestowed by Iconic Silver paint. It doesn’t have to be a bright flashy hue to be impressive, in our humble opinion.
17” Black High Gloss-Painted Aluminum, Beadlock Capable wheels provide the right amount of flashiness while still providing more functional utility than standard wheels. When it’s time to air up or down, you’ll thank yourself for opting for a more premium setup.
Now while this does fly in the face of our previous claims of moderation being key, we can’t help but admire the look of the LT 315 / 70R17 Mud-Terrain (M/T) Tires. We want full ability when it comes down to the nitty gritty, even if that makes for a louder highway ride. After all, is the Bronco really meant for quietly cruising I-35?
Next up we’re choosing roof rails with crossbars for the Bronco, as we love the look and added utility at a relatively low additional cost. We went with the two-door Bronco, so we do need to maximize our usable space on the vehicle’s exterior.
This next choice is maybe the most controversial one yet, but we’d forgo the brush guard addition, as we like the full visibility of the bold B R O N C O grille. How could you not want to show off that gorgeous new face?
One must-have option for us is the keyless entry keypad. It’s a creature comfort convenience feature, but that’s why we love it. That, and we got tired of hiring locksmiths when we inevitably forgot our keys inside.
The mid package equipment group for the 2021 Bronco is a must-have for us. If you’re taking the doors off and riding around Big Red Off Road Park out in Macomb on a chilly evening, there’s no better duo than heated seats and a heated steering wheel.
When it comes to the engine, we’re conflicted, but ultimately feel in good hands rocking the 2.3L EcoBoost Engine. It’s not the most powerful engine in the world, but it doesn’t need to be for the Bronco to pour out stellar performance.
We’ve created this build in such a way that we are required to choose an automatic transmission, but we’re okay with that.
As you know, the Bronco Badlands comes standard with a rear locking differential, which is another key feature of this build. We’ve also got the Sasquatch Package, which sets us up with some sweet 35’s, high clearance suspension, and more.
When it comes to the exterior, we’d throw the two-door rock rails kit on our Badlands.
We’ll leave the rest up to you, though!
We could talk back and forth all day long about what bells and whistles to throw on the exterior, but we think you’ve probably got that all figured out. There are already, and will be, scores of aftermarket options for your new Bronco, so you’ll have more than enough options to truly customize your Ford in Guthrie.
