Up on a Roof

October 22, 2020

With the launch of build and price hours away, Bronco brand has announced some important news related to roof options on the 2021 Bronco 2-door and 4-door models. The top two series, the First Edition and Wildtrak™ models will only be available at launch with molded‑in‑color hardtops. The black‑painted modular hardtop roof, which was previously standard, will now be a late‑availability option for the 2021 model year, and will be offered to Wildtrak and First Edition series customers who are willing to wait.
Keeping complexity down at launch will accelerate quality and get up to maximum line speed to meet demand. The move to a 100% mold-in-color further enables this at Ford’s Michigan Assembly).
As a result of this change, the MSRP of these models will be reduced by $1,895, the full retail price of the black painted modular hardtop option. Removeable driver and passenger first row and second row sections as well as the rear cap functionality (see Figure 1) remains to provide open air driving.  2-Door open air driving can be achieved by removing the front section (see Figure 2).

Bronco 2‑ and 4‑door reservation holders will be given the choice of taking the mold-in-color option at order conversion process begins in December. Alternatively, reservation holders can choose to wait for the black-painted modular hard top when it comes available. In addition to the black painted finish, the modular top allows for the removal of the rear-quarter glass in Bronco 2- and 4-doors models (https://youtu.be/-Pp42_CYCAM) and on 2-door models only, adds another panel to the rear cap.

Bronco brand has indicated that initial reservation time stamp will continue to be honored. Not sure what this will do for those choosing to wait except to ensure your place in line.
