Ford has patented new doors and it seems they are for the revived BroncoMarch 29, 2019
A couple of minutes ago, patent images were published, on which are shown removable doors, instead of which you can install protective sides.
Earlier this week, it was reported that the American company provided dealers with a lot more information about the revived SUV, which will also be available in 2- and 4-door versions with a “retro design”. Now a new Ford patent application suggests that the model may also receive removable doors, and this is consistent with earlier assumptions from various sources directly related to the automaker.
The patent images show a compact SUV, which is a two-door pickup with a cargo platform cover, and not a “monolithic” SUV. It has removable doors with removable sides that can be removed and attached to the vehicle after removing the doors.
Simply put, this patent proposes a design that can allow for the removal of doors and the installation of safety beams for safety.
Door hinges seem modular, which means that you can use them to open and close both standard doors and door beads.
Earlier it was reported that the new Bronco can also get the function of the Air Roof, which is a removable roof. This feature includes six modular roof panels that can be added and removed manually, and also stored in a car when not in use. If all this is true, the new Bronco will be similar in this respect to the current Jeep Wrangler.
The Ford Bronco will be based on a chassis with a body on a frame with solid axles at both ends and will be equipped with a turbocharged EcoBoost engine. The official presentation will be held in early 2020.
