Ford Bronco Overlanding Concept Is an SUV Worth Sleeping On
Future Ford Bronco owners are probably as excited as anyone right now about bringing their outdoor rigs into an off-road adventure. Sure, some will make more traditional wheels with their rigs, but there’s a lot of interest in long-distance – off-grid – overland these days.
Ford provides some inspiration to these people in the form of the Bronco Overlanding concept. This is a 2021 Bronco Badlands four-door in Area 51 paint and has a seven-speed manual transmission. Most importantly, it comes with plenty of upgrades.
For rolling stock, the Bronco Overlanding concept wears 17-inch Fifteen52 Turbomatic wheels in a black finish and wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich KM3 tires for muddy terrain. A Warn winch shoots out of a modular steel bumper (both Ford Performance accessories), while a light bar and six nacelle lights from Rigid (both attached to the roof rack) give a good look at this. waiting for us in the dark. The rear bumper also sports a CB antenna.
Upstairs, a Yakima rooftop tent can accommodate two people, and in the back, a camp kitchen with an ARB refrigerator and stove attached to a cargo storage management system. For more storage and organization of gear, MOLLE panels are attached to the inside of the side windows in the cargo area.
This is not an atypical construction for an overlanding platform, and therefore, it is not a totally unattainable bespoke creation that is out of reach for typical Bronco owners. In fact, this concept excites us to put the Bronco to the test and do some overlanding ourselves. In this sense, mission accomplished, Ford.
