Now, I do not know if the parents at Ford know one thing that the remainder of us do not, however on Friday, it despatched out a press launch extolling the virtues of the brand new four-door Bronco cargo space as a roomy and comfy place to sleep. Are we speaking societal super-collapse or #vanlife?
In both case, for those who’re the sort of one who relishes the prospect to sleep in your SUV otherwise you’re making an attempt to keep away from roving cannibal highway gangs, then you can be happy to know that with the Bronco’s rear seats folded down and the entrance seats pushed all the way in which ahead, there isn’t any lower than 6 toes, 6 inches of house to stretch out with the tailgate closed.
That is cool, however what for those who, like me, are very tall and can possible want extra space? In the event you’re prepared to sleep with the automobile open, Ford will promote you (beginning subsequent 12 months in some unspecified time in the future) an optionally available slide-out tailgate that extends that to eight toes, 9 inches, however then your toes get nibbled on by coyotes or mutants or one thing.
Need to get surprisingly chilly in the midst of the night time whereas desert tenting below the celebs? Ford has you coated there, too, with its number of four-door Bronco roof choices. In the event you pull off the hardtop roof totally, you may have a 13.3-square-foot viewing aperture. Fairly candy, till you are eaten by bugs (or Deathclaws).
Do not fancy sleeping within the again? Effectively, you may most likely find yourself placing a roof tent on, like anybody else hooked on overlanding pictures would. That leaves tons of house for the remainder of your gear within the again. How a lot house? 77.6 cubic toes with the second row folded and the optionally available hardtop. That goes as much as 83 cubic toes with the tender high.
So, there you go. The 2021 Ford Bronco four-door is a roomy beast, and you’ll look ahead to displaying off your soft-off-road tenting journeys on the ‘Gram or get pleasure from continued survival in some sort of Red Dawn-esque survival state of affairs.
