Why won’t the refreshed Ford Bronco have a folding windshield?

As part of his interview, a Ford spokesman said that the new generation Bronco SUV could still get a folding windshield. It was separately noted that “the possibility of a folding windshield was incorporated into the design of the car.”

As the representatives of Ford have said more than once, the main task of the all-new Bronco is to create a “tough” competition for the Jeep Wrangler SUV, which has long been the “king” of off-road. Ford’s next-generation SUV has a few tricks up its sleeve. As with the Jeep, Bronco owners can remove the roof and doors for outdoor seating, but unlike the Jeep Wrangler, the windshield is locked in place.

The 2021 Ford Bronco has almost got a folding windshield.

This was announced by the chief designer of the car Paul Wraith during a conversation with journalists from the Ford Authority. The original version of the reborn SUV was designed with a folding windshield in mind, but this feature was ultimately removed from the production SUV: “We looked at that option. The original Ford Bronco had the ability to fold down the windshield, the modern version won’t. ”

To try and keep the open air feeling as much as possible, the company’s engineers decided to resort to other tricks. The A-pillars have been minimized as much as possible without compromising safety by moving the airbags in the “sport tubes”

While the windshield cannot be folded in the Bronco, the four-door model allows owners to store doors in the rear cargo area. Additionally, Ford claims the doors are lightweight and easy to operate by only one person, while the Wrangler doors are notoriously bulky.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Ford does not exclude the appearance of a right-hand drive version of the Bronco. According to the Ford Authority portal Saturday, October 10, the Ford Bronco can be configured for countries with left-hand traffic.
