What can an off-road Ford Bronco R SUV show?

Representatives of the American brand organized a test drive of the Bronco SUV. This model was specially prepared to participate in the legendary rally in the Bach desert. There is still no official announcement about when to wait for the appearance of the usual performance of the Bronco SUV.

Today, Ford surprised us a bit with its Bronco R – the prototype of a revived SUV that is fully prepared for racing in the Bach desert. In the desert near Las Vegas, company representatives organized a demonstration of the capabilities of the Ford Bronco R. Our colleague even managed to ride an SUV.

 Ford representatives claim that despite the fact that this version of the car is highly modernized and fully prepared for racing, the control and dynamic characteristics of the SUV are essentially unchanged, so we can say that this is an early Bronco test drive.

 Now a few words about the changes themselves – in the design of the suspension components like Fox are used, which provide a 14-inch spring travel in front and 18-inch in the rear. Massive 37-inch off-road tires go far beyond the already wide wings of the Bronco R – all the better for off-road performance.

  As for power, unfortunately there are no details, except that the engine has two turbochargers. This may mean several different variations of the Ford EcoBoost V6 engine – insiders said that we are talking about a 2.7-liter engine. As you can see from the videos and photos, the Bronco R is certainly a custom-made race car.

There is still no official announcement about when to wait for the appearance of the production Bronco SUV, but Ford plans to send the Bronco R to the Bach desert to participate in the legendary rally racing at the end of November this year.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that an evil version of the Ford Ranger pickup will be shown at the SEMA tuning exhibition. The author of this crazy project is the well-known tuning company PaxPower, which wants to effectively remind of itself by showing at the SEMA exhibition a highly modernized version of the compact Ford Ranger pickup.
