How much can the 2021 Ford Bronco tow, and how does it drive when pulling? Russell Marine, located on Lake Martin in Alabama, lent the Bronco Nation team two jet skis and a trailer so we could go over towing with the Bronco, including tow capacity, trailer hook up, and Bronco performance. We’d like to give a special thank you to community member Will H. for arranging the opportunity!
How Much Weight Can It Pull?
Jordan starts out with the answer: The Bronco can tow 3,500 pounds. The Sea-Doo watercrafts are about 900 pounds each, and the trailer clocks in between 300-400 pounds, bringing the weight tally in this video to under 2,500 pounds.
Attach Your Load; Start the Engine
Once you’ve hooked up your trailer and started your engine, you’ll see an alert on your dash –– the blind spot and cross traffic alerts have been deactivated. Some Ford vehicles provide blind spot monitoring with a trailer, but the Bronco is not one of them.
Then, if you’d like to adjust settings, head over on the infotainment screen. Tap “Features,” which brings up four options: Driver Assistance, Zone Lighting, Towing, and Owner’s Manual.
Towing, of course, is the one we’re interested in here. Tap it for Trailer Sway Control and the Connection Checklist. You can run through the list on the screen to double-check that you’ve completed all the steps.
Head to Your Destination
Once you’re securely hooked up and have adjusted your options and mirrors, you’re ready to head out. With this load specifically, Jordan says the driving experience in the Bronco feels comfortable and powerful, with stable steering and solid braking.
