A classic SUV is about to make a huge comeback. After having ceased production back in 1996, the Ford Bronco is going to be reincarnated and modernized for 2021. While the Bronco’s return was initially announced in 2017 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and there’s still plenty we don’t know yet, it’s expected to resume production in September 2020.

The iconic 4×4’s return is enough to excite any auto enthusiast, and its impending arrival at dealer lots is worth looking forward to for a number of reasons. Here’s why the 2021 Ford Bronco is such a hot topic for auto mechanic students.

Its Design is Old-School Cool With a Modern Touch

With a retro style, boxy shape, a removable roof and a choice between two or four removable doors, the Bronco is similar in shape to the Ford Ranger midsize pickup. However, it has some distinctive features of its own, including an integrated roll-hoop under the top, LED daytime running lights, and headlights similar to the sealed-beam ones found on the original Bronco. 

Although the Bronco will not have a V-8 engine, it will nonetheless provide drivers a twin-turbo V-6 and four-cylinder engine. Both the Bronco and Bronco Sport will offer drivers three options for grille designs: Classic, Modern (the default option), and Custom. Between its shape, front fascias, removable doors and multiple powertrains, there’s plenty for those looking to become a mechanic to like about the Bronco based on its design alone.

The Bronco is Just as Impressive on the Inside

As far as its interior features are concerned, there’s lots for car enthusiasts to like about the Bronco and the Bronco Sport. The centre console contains a large gear selector, and leaked photos of the Bronco Sport appear to have revealed the presence of a digital gauge cluster, as well as orange-accented door handles. 

The Bronco is also expected to have a touchscreen setup embedded in the SUV’s dashboard. Powered by Ford’s Sync4 in-dash software, this will connect wirelessly to the driver’s smartphone as well as the cloud. This infotainment system also allows drivers to use various features such as a Wi-Fi hotspot (subscription-based), Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

Want to Become a Mechanic? You’ll Love the Bronco Sport

The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport will be a smaller equivalent of the Bronco. Auto mechanic school students might be interested to know that it will not only share the boxy shape of the larger Bronco, but also offer some extra off-road capabilities.

Leaked photos also appear to show the Bronco Sport taking some influence from Ford’s F-150 and Explorer models, with a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged powertrain for base models. A 2.0, four-cylinder EcoBoost motor is also available.  It’s shaped more like a traditional SUV, and the “Baby Bronco” is available only in all-wheel drive and as a four-door model, as opposed to the Bronco’s two or four door options. It’s also available in at least 10 exterior paint colours, and either a gray or black roof.
