Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn has revealed a Bronco Overland concept and is displaying the model at this year’s Bronco Super Celebration in Tennessee.
Based on the all-new Bronco four-door SUV Badlands series model painted in the Area 51 color scheme, the concept will be displayed alongside the all-new Bronco two-door and Bronco Sport 4×4 models.
The concept is designed to take adventurers farther into the wild. It features the high-performance off-road stability suspension system with Bilstein position-sensitive dampers, 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, a seven-speed manual transmission, 17-inch Fifteen52 Turbomatic heavy-duty wheels in asphalt black, and 35-inch BFGoodrich LT315/7OR-17 mud-terrain KM3 tires for better off-road traction.
Up front, the Bronco Overlander concept features a Ford Performance by WARN winch mounted to a Ford Performance modular steel bumper to help negotiate rocky terrain. A heavy-duty two-person tent from Yakima and a factory roof rack are mounted to the roof rails with a 1×40 RIGID rack-mounted light bar and six additional RIGID POD lights in a 360 configuration for improved lighting all around. A CB antenna is mounted to the rear bumper.
The rear is set up to be the center of basecamp and includes an ARB refrigerator, cooking kit, and stove mounted to a cargo management system. A tailgate table and chairs complete the campsite. The rear quarter window glass has rigid panels with MOLLE grids mounted inside for additional rear cargo area storage.
