All indicators show that Ford had a home run with the 2021 Bronco. Automaker Dearborn kept the iconic square design of the SUV with a modern twist, and the public took note. The new Bronco also allows designers to have fun hiding Easter eggs throughout the vehicle for eagle-eyed customers to discover. However, there is a small design detail that is intentionally hidden from view.
Paul Wraith, Bronco 2021 chief designer, said Muscle cars and trucks about an Easter egg hidden in an interview. Wraith said it “puts a smile” on his face, but he wouldn’t go further in explaining how it would be found. All we know is that “it’s hidden from view,” which isn’t that helpful given Wraith’s huge advantage in hiding those details. But that’s how the game is played when you design the vehicle.
The Bronco is no stranger to Easter eggs, either. There are small touches inside and out, like the on-off button on the dashboard has a design that mimics the headlights. Then there’s the sliding rear tray which is stamped like the original Bronco hatchback – bold lines with the FORD branding en bloc justified to the right.
When the 2021 Bronco arrives next spring, it will be offered in two and four doors with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder producing 270 horsepower (201 kilowatts) and 310 pound-feet (420 Newton-meters) of torque and a manual. seven-speed series. A 10-speed car is optional, as is a larger, twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 developing 310 hp (231 kW) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque. However, you can’t get the manual gearbox with the bigger engine.
Easter eggs are a great way for automakers to have fun while adding a touch of personality to each model. They’re rarely quite visible, and that’s what makes them fun. Thanks to Wraith, we now know that there is at least one more Easter Egg hidden somewhere on the Bronco, and we expect there to be more that have yet to be found. Good hunt.
