prototype interior

This interior spy image shows a roll-cage structure inside of the prototype. We are not sure whether a production version will use a similar configuration, but all rumors point to the 2021 Bronco having a removable top and removable doors.

The Bronco prototype has what appear to be a front-mounted radar in the lower bumper, and a windshield-mounted front-facing camera. We expect the new Bronco to have Ford’s latest driver assistance technology package CoPilot-360.
