Ford has put in a lot of work into its resurrected and revamped line of Broncos ahead of the SUV’s relaunch, CarBuzz.com reports. And Ford promises scores of upgrades and features that the people who enjoy the outdoors will love, like a fishing pole holder, winch, or Yakima racks, the Detroit Free Press said. But a Bronco concept vehicle Ford his showing off seems tailormade for those who love to camp.
Bronco Overland Concept is ready to go camping
Even though the Bronco hasn’t gone on sale yet, it’s clear that Ford has chosen its audience. The Bronco Overland Concept is based on the Bronco Badlands — the Bronco most ready to go offroad, Top Gear says. But getting to your off-road campsite is one thing, having everything you need built into a vehicle is another.
The Overland Concept features a roof-mounted two-person tent and a rear quarter full of fridges and cooking facilities, with a fold-up table and chairs stuffed into the tailgate. It’s a camper’s dream.
The Bronco Overland in this video features Ford’s Area 51 color scheme, Blue Oval’s High-Performance Off-road Stability Suspension System with Bilstein position-sensitive dampers, and a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with class-exclusive 7-speed manual transmission. Its 4-cylinder turbo engine drive its 35-inch tires.
Ford Bronco taking on Jeep, Land Rover
The truck was developed to compete in the SUV market with the Jeep Wrangler and the new Land Rover Defender. Its design was obviously inspired by the original 1966 Bronco which had body-on-frame construction, standard four-wheel-drive and a removable roof and doors. The 2021 version has a rich color palette to choose from and optional packages that make off-roading fun and easy.

Car and Driver reviewed the new Broncos and ultimately were very happy with the new offering. But there is one major problem. Most importantly, if you reserve a Bronco today, expect to wait more than a year, Car and Driver said. Maybe as much as 18 months.
“Reservations have been so popular that some Bronco customers may not receive their Bronco until 2022,” a Ford spokesperson told the magazine.
So, if you enjoy the look of the new Broncos, sign up now. You can learn more about the Broncos here.
