Staff Builds: Base

All this week, we’ll be bringing you our builds for each trim of the 2021 Ford Bronco. @david in the forums and @dwrock, your friendly Bronco Nation support and fulfillment associate, will each bring a build to the table with a different theme. We aren’t experts and this isn’t a list of recommendations, it’s just a couple Bronco fans dreaming up some rigs.

 Today we start with the Bronco Base.

@David: The Value Off-Roader

Bronco Base with Sasquatch is something special. In the spirit of Basesquatch, I tried to put together the best value off-roader I could. I chose the 2-Door since that’s cheaper. From there I added Sasquatch for the 35in tires, high clearance suspension, locking diffs and the beadlock capable wheels. For accessories, I added the heavy duty modular front bumper, the Aux switches, rock rails, the off-road recovery kit, and the Off Road/Track Air Compressor Kit.

I went back and forth on whether to add the winch and eventually it made it into the build. I guess I couldn’t live with calling this a fully capable off roader without a winch solution. I have some prepper tendencies, don’t judge.

What I didn’t add was the 2.7L EcoBoost engine. That might be controversial, but I needed to cut cost somewhere and I wanted to keep all the other mechanicals. Time will tell whether people feel like the 2.3L is enough for a great off-road rig.

For color, I went with Oxford White since I think that works best with the very basic Base grille. All of that brings this Bronco Base specimen to under $700 a month*. Not the cheapest, but a pretty good value for a beast of an off-roader from the factory.

@dwrock: The Storm Trooper

What’s better than a slightly themed exterior? Because much of the extra cladding, fender flares, and top are black, I thought Oxford White was a solid choice. Giving my build a sort of Storm Trooper look. I made sure to include the Paint Protection Film, as I’m bit of detailing geek, and it’ll help keep the paint finish looking it’s best. I’m sure it would look great driving through the snow up here in Michigan. I opted for the steel wheels from the factory, but I bet the aftermarket would have something in the same size, more suited to the theme.

Between the 2 engine choices, I opted for the 2.7 Ecoboost because Mo Powah Babeh! Something I’ve always wanted on my vehicles in an Engine Block Heater, so I added that as well, for the colder months.

For the interior on my Base Bronco Build, there weren’t too many options available to add, but I did choose the Sound Deadening Headliner. I think this help with any road noise, and maybe help a little with insulating in the colder months. All of that brings this Bronco Base example to $633 a month* .
