Mark your calendars, folks. The 2021 Ford Bronco will finally make its long-awaited debut on Thursday, July 9, the automaker confirmed in an Instagram post on Saturday.
The Bronco was originally scheduled to debut in April, and Ford had even issued invitations for media to attend the big event. The coronavirus pandemic put the kibosh on those plans, however, and while Ford maintained the Bronco would still debut this spring, a summertime debut on July 9 is now official.
Of course, thanks to a number of leaked photos and details, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect when the 2021 Bronco shows its face. We know the SUV will have a removable roof and doors, and the Bronco will be available in two- and four-door variants. Power will likely come from the 2.3-liter turbo I4 engine found in the Ford Ranger, but we've heard a turbo V6 is also a possibility. A seven-speed manual transmission is in the cards, too.
