In case you haven’t heard of it yet, Ford has a new Bronco that debuted a few weeks ago. This new model launch went mainly unnoticed, in much the same way that the Batmobile goes unnoticed during a Cars and coffee Event. Suffice it to say that there is considerable excitement for the all-terrain and its various options, especially the one that turns the Bronco into a monster. Of course, we are talking about the Sasquatch package.
In short, the Sasquatch pack turns the Bronco into a hard-core off-roader from the factory. It adds locking front and rear differentials, high clearance suspension with upgraded shocks, large 35-inch muddy tires, and high clearance fender flares to give the tires more room. It all looks neat, and we’ve seen photos of the Bronco fitted with this set. We haven’t seen a Sasquatch-equipped Bronco alongside the standard model, however, until now. Yeah, it’s been a little little difference.

These photos come to Motor1.com courtesy of Nigel Gatone. He shared these photos on Bronco6g.com and was kind enough to film high-res versions for us so we could take a close look. Parked side-by-side, the Sasquatch package makes the standard Bronco look tiny in comparison. Actually the difference is not that significant, but from an aesthetic point of view, there is no denying the aggressive look you get by adding this package.
The photos also include comparative shots of the Ford F-150 and the Bronco’s main competitor, the Jeep Wrangler. A Wrangler Rubicon would make a better game, but it’s still an interesting look and what will no doubt become a significant new rivalry in Detroit. If only Chevrolet could revive the Blazer into a trio of muddy excitement. Oh wait a minute, the Blazer was resurrected … like a soft-roader. Yeah, it’s embarrassing.
When it comes to the Sasquatch pack, the good news is that you can get it on any Bronco trim level, including the two-door Bronco base which starts at under $ 30,000. We suspect that Ford will have no shortage of buyers for rugged all-terrain vehicles at this price point.
