2021 Bronco Guide

yes. Welcome to Bronco Nation’s guide to the 2021 Ford Bronco. Below you’ll find information for each trim along with photos of every Bronco configuration that we’ve been able to capture. You’ll also find our notes on each trim’s highlight features and the order guide for that trim with PDF link.

Base

Obviously, Base is where it all starts for Bronco. The challenge for an auto maker like Ford is starting the experience for a new vehicle in a great place. Even if you don’t go for any of the bells and whistles of a new Bronco, will you have a good experience while you’re in it?

Base Bronco has a cloth interior in simple colors, Black Onyx and Dark Space Gray. The instrument panel is capped with dark Space Gray and mid-panel is what Ford calls Sinister Black. The interior has been popular with Bronco Nation forum users, beating out the Wildtrack Digitized Camo and OBX Cloth Roast interior in our polling.

Key Standard Features:

  • Bronco Base comes standard with Ford’s new terrain management system (TMS) with 5 G.O.A.T. Modes. Activated by a dial on the center console, G.O.A.T. modes allow the driver to easily select presets adjusting differentials, powertrain, traction control settings, and more. Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal are the included modes for Base.
  • Sync 4 with wireless Apple CarPlay

Key Options:

  • Sasquatch Package: Includes 35-inch tires with 17-inch Beadlock Capable wheels, Bilstein position sensitive monotube shocks, 4.7 final drive ration, high-clearance fender flares, and front- and rear-locking differentials.
  • 2.7L EcoBoost V6, though you’ll give up the manual transmission

Big Bend

The Big Bend is a step up from the Base Bronco with a $33,385 starting price tag. Everything we listed as standard features in our Base Profile comes standard in the Big Bend, but this trim level’s most impressive upgrade is its 17” wheels with 32-inch P255/75R17 all-terrain tires. LED fog lamps are another useful improvement for anyone thinking about nighttime expeditions.

Interior grab handles make Big Bend a more comfortable trim level, and with a leather-wrapped gear shift knob and steering wheel, a more attractive one too. This Bronco can be equipped with the Mid level package with tons of options, as well as a Sasquatch package featuring a few treats.

Key Standard Features:

  • Bronco Big Bend adds a 6th mode over the Base’s 5 G.O.A.T. Modes in Ford’s new terrain management system (TMS) activated by a dial on the center console. Mud/Ruts come standard with Big Bend in addition to Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal.
  • Larger, 32in tires
  • Alloy wheels

Key Options:

  • Sasquatch Package
  • Heavy Duty Modular Front Bumper
  • Upgraded Front Steel Bash Plates
  • Mid Package

Black Diamond

Starting at $36,050, the Black Diamond trim level takes Big Bend’s standard features and adds some heavy-duty hardware. Drivers who order this model will appreciate greater protection from a stronger modular front bumper—upgrade it with an optional winch, lighting configurations, and more.

Black Diamond also improves the Bronco’s undercarriage bash plates to better withstand rocks, stumps, and other trail obstacles. You’ll find a practical MOLLE strap system to hang equipment behind the front driver and passenger seats, and marine grade vinyl that cleans with a wipe.

Key Standard Features:

  • At this trim level, we now have 7 available G.O.A.T. modes. In addition to the standard Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal, Black Diamond adds Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl to Ford’s new terrain management system (TMS).
  • Auxiliary switches with pre-run accessory wires (overhead console)
  • Rubberized flooring with washout capable drain plugs for easy clean up.
  • Rock Rails

Outer Banks

For adventuerers who prioritize comfort, the Outer Banks ($38,955) offers a more luxurious driving experience. This Bronco’s starting equipment package—Mid—includes all of the Big Bend’s standard features with a long list of additions. Some highlights: heated seats, dual-zone climate control, and Ford Co-Pilot360.

The High package gives you everything Mid offers, and more. Or upgrade even further with the Lux package, which includes everything from the Mid and High packages then ups the ante. We’ve broken each package down in a helpful list.

Key Standard Features:

  • Like the Big Bend, Outer Banks features 6 G.O.A.T. modes in Ford’s new terrain management system (TMS). Mud/Ruts comes standard in addition to Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal.
  • 10-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • Powder Coated Tube Step

Badlands

Starting at $42,095, the Badlands trim level is the most capable off-road compared to every other trim level. Featuring 33 inch tires, Bilstein position sensitive monotube shocks, a stabilizer bar disconnect, and front and rear locking differentials, the standard package alone puts Badlands well ahead of the competition.

Offering the most packages, Badlands also gives owners the freedom to stick with standard, or opt for Mid, High, or Lux packages for increased comfort. Adding the optional sasquatch package delivers even greater off-road ability. Of particular note, this is the only trim where the Lux package can be matched with a manual transmission.

Key Standard Features:

  • 7 available G.O.A.T. modes. Includes: Mud/Ruts, Rock Crawl, Sand, Slippery, Baja, Eco, and Normal.
  • Stabilizer bar disconnect
  • Front and rear locking differentials
  • HOSS (High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension) System with Bilstein Position Sensitive Dampers
  • 33” All-Terrain Tires

Key Options:

  • 33” with Beadlock Capable Wheels
  • Hard Top
  • Mid-Lux Packages
  • Sasquatch
  • Leather

Wildtrak

The Wildtrak, starting at $46,980, is the desert runner Bronco built with an emphasis on speed. Though fully capable as an all-around off-road vehicle, it excels in conditions like you might find in the Baja 1000. Most of what you get in the Outer Banks, you get here too, plus a load of extras.

A standard Mold-In-Color (MIC) hard top on 4-Door and Wildtrak graphics distinguish this Bronco from the rest of stable, while the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine—optional on other trim levels—comes standard. Everything in the Mid package, combined with the Sasquatch package, comes standard too.

Key Standard Features:

  • 7 G.O.A.T. modes—but this time switching Rock Crawl for Baja mode, as well as Mud/Ruts, Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco, and Normal
  • Sasquatch Package
  • 2.7L EcoBoost V6 Engine
  • Auxiliary Switches with Pre-Run Wires
  • Mid Package

Key Options:

  • Rock Rails
  • High Package
  • Lux Package
