In this video, Bronco’s Esteban and Bronco Nation’s Matt walk us through the operation of the Bestop soft top, an accessory you can find in the Ford catalog. The top is available for both 2- and 4-door models. You can choose from two materials: a twill cloth version, or a vinyl that clocks in at a slightly lower price point.
“A tremendous amount of research went into what users want to share and where they want to share it. The overlay is a reflection of that.” That’s from Sarah Ables, the Experience Lead for FordPass Performance. She and Shane Coloney, Ford’s Senior Product Manager for Navigation who we met in our previous articles — along with a team of designers, engineers, and developers — brought the FordPass Performance experience together. They not only wanted to make it easy to find and navigate the great off-road spaces of North America, but they also wanted Bronco owners to be able to share that experience like never before.
We think the FordPass Performance App is one of the most fascinating features of the 2021 Ford Bronco. Yesterday, we introduced you to Shane Coloney, the leader of the team that is putting together a groundbreaking experience for future Bronco owners, one that will give you some key tools to help you plan adventures. Today, we’re going to talk about that planning experience and how the FordPass Performance app can serve as your map to the wild.
Ford is talking about the 2021 Bronco’s modularity again. A few select builders have been given a chance to see just how customizable Bronco can be. We saw this demonstrated before with Ford’s SEMA Bronco build, but now for the first time third parties get a chance to play with Ford’s new open air 4x4. The results speak for themselves.
We’re excited for this one. Great 4x4s are all about getting closer to the great outdoors. One way to do that is by taking your doors off. So, Bronco How-To is going to show you how to do that. Grab a 13MM Hex socket, a flannel shirt, and let’s get some fresh air. Remember, lift with your legs, not with your back.
The Ford Performance Heavy Duty Modular Front Bumper is an option on Base, Big Bend, Outer Banks, and Wildtrack Broncos and comes standard on Black Diamond, Badlands, and First Edition. You rarely want your bumper to actually bump into anything but when you’re driving off-road that can be hard to avoid. The Modular Front Bumper’s end caps can be removed so that there is more clearance for the front wheels while still providing protection for the body pieces that surround the grille. Fewer bumps and a little more getting over the humps.
G.O.A.T. Modes help the Bronco help you. Whether you’re crawling on some rocks or running the desert, these modes optimize your Bronco. Tonight, we’ll be explaining the modes available on a Bronco Badlands. After the video make sure to stop by our How To Forum thread for some extras info on G.O.A.T. Modes and some discussion. We hope you enjoy the show!
Yesterday we made a home for all the How-To content that we have coming for Bronco. You’ll find it in the Bronco Nation Essentials category on the forum frontpage. We wanted to have a single place where the Nation can find out how to get the most out of their Bronco and this new forum is that place.
