Suzy Deering, Chief Marketing Officer at Ford Motor, said, "We know the fans have been waiting for the Bronco – and we're so excited to bring it back. And this Bronco is better than ever. We're staying authentic to Bronco's goes-over-any-terrain heritage and have leveraged the brand's Built Wild innovative design, durability and advanced off-road capability to get the most out of every adventure in the wild."

Ford took the covers off the 2021 Bronco SUV family, a new line-up of vehicles that include the classic two-door and the first-ever four-door 4X4 versions. The four-wheel drive Bronco also aims to take on one of the key players in the US market - the Jeep Wrangler.

The Ford Bronco SUVs will be available in two powertrain options. The petrol 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 engine, which can produce 310 horsepower and 542 Nm of torque, while the 2.3-litre EcoBoost is targeted to deliver four-cylinder torque of 420 Nm with an expected 270 horsepower.

Ford had invested $750 million and added about 2,700 employees at the Michigan assembly plant to build the new Broncos. "We have the most skilled workforce in America working in a plant that’s state-of-the-art," said John Savona, Vice President, manufacturing and labour affairs at Ford Motor. "It’s an unbeatable combination designed to deliver our customers a high-quality, ready-for-anything, all-new Bronco," he added.

Ford Motor had withdrawn the Bronco SUV from production in 1996 amid falling demand, three decades after the first generation of Bronco SUV was launched.
