Removable doors on the Ford Bronco will be better than the Jeep WranglerSeptember 20, 2019
In the database of the American patent office, they found a description of the idea of removable doors for the new Ford Bronco. The design proposed by the company is conceptually better than the one used on the Jeep Wrangler.
Ford suggests fastening the doors to Bronco with special latches, rather than bolts, like a competitor from Jeep. Thus, the doors can be dismantled without a screwdriver: just put the latch in the open position, which will allow you to remove the door from the hinges. However, you will first need to disconnect the wiring that goes to the door locks and windows.
Ford excluded the possibility of spontaneous opening of latches – unnecessary unlocking is designed to prevent the lock system. In addition, the mechanism cannot be opened if the car is not level.
The fact that Ford has patented removable door latches does not mean that this option will be offered for the serial Bronco. However, it should be borne in mind that the direct competitor of the novelty is the Jeep Wrangler, which today remains the only car on the market with removable doors.
Ford had previously patented much crazier ideas than removable doors – for example, a “movie theater on wheels,” a walking car seat and a carousel.
