The Bronco Overland concept has everything an adventurer needs to explore the wilderness in style.
The 2021 Ford Bronco will take you places, but the Overland version will let you spend the night there. The special edition is excellent for camping enthusiasts or people wanting to get away from the concrete jungle.
The concept uses the Bronco Badlands 4-door version as the base, already a competent off-roader. Moreover, Ford painted the car in a blue shade that it likes to call “Area 51” color scheme. The Overland concept features Bronco’s 2.3-liter Turbo 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine and 7-speed manual transmission.
Performance-oriented modifications include a High-Performance Off-road Stability Suspension (H.O.S.S.) with Bilstein dampers. Furthermore, a WARN winch is mounted on the modular steel front bumper and a tall CB antenna on the rear bumper.
For increased traction and toughness, the concept uses 17-inch Fifteen52 turbomatic wheels with 35-inch BFGoodrich LT315/70R-17 mud tires.
To make camping life more comfortable, the Overland comes with a Yakima heavy-duty roof tent for two people. Meanwhile, a 1×40 rigid light bar on the roof helps with visibility in the dark, certainly crucial for an Overlanding vehicle. Ultimately, six separate Rigid light pods give a 360-degree view of the perimeter.
The trunk houses an ARB refrigerator with a slide-out tray for better access and space-saving. There is also a cooking kit and a stove mounted efficiently in the trunk’s compact area. Also, the tailgate has an integrated folding table, while the trunk includes folding chairs.
Deliveries for the new Bronco will start next year, starting at almost $30,000. However, Ford didn’t release any pricing details for the Overland edition. For comparison purposes, the Badlands variant starts at $44,590 for the 4-door version.
Furthermore, it’s still unclear if Ford plans to actually sell the concept or just wants to showcase what could be done with its new Bronco.
