Ford Corporation showed a variant of the new generation Bronco SUV called Wildland Fire Rig, designed to prevent and extinguish forest fires.

The machine, created together with the manufacturer of outdoor equipment Filson, has acquired technical improvements and special equipment. The special vehicle has a green and white exterior paintwork, which is a reference to the first generation special Ford Bronco, which was in the fleet of the US Forest Service.

Unlike the base model, the new car received a metal kangurin with a winch, wheel arch extensions and sections with LED panels. In turn, the interior was trimmed with fire-resistant nylon and black quilted leather, and on the front panel it is worth noting the appearance of a radio station that allows you to keep in touch on short waves.

It is worth saying that the special SUV also has additional equipment, such as a stationary reel with a fire hose, a 190-liter water tank, a high-pressure water pump, and also a chainsaw and much more.

Recall that the new Ford Bronco SUV was shown this summer. The frame machine is offered in 3- and 5-door bodies. The engine range is represented by a 274-horsepower “turbo four” with a volume of 2.3 liters, and a V6 engine with a capacity of 314 hp. by 3.7 liters. Together with the units, a 7-speed manual transmission or a 10-range automatic transmission works.

In addition, it was previously reported that the Ford Bronco Sport won the Rebelle Off-Road Rally. It is worth saying that, according to the statements of the American automaker, the car that managed to win the race was completely stock.
