Jeep Wrangler, you’ve had it too good for too long. The 2021 Ford Bronco is coming for you with a well-thought out, thorough lineup of retro-styled off-roaders that incorporate all the best Wrangler features and add some of their own.

Ford unveiled the 2021 Bronco on Monday in two- and four-door body styles, along with a little brother called the Ford Bronco Sport.

The 2021 Bronco is a body-on-frame SUV based on the next-generation T6 platform, the current version of which underpins the Ranger pickup. Dana axles are used front and rear, with a MacPherson strut independent front suspension and a solid rear axle with coil springs and five locating links. An upgraded suspension with long-travel Bilstein dampers is reserved for more serious off-road versions. It also features end-stop control valves to smooth out hard off-road compression.
