2021 Ford Bronco Breaks Ford’s Reservation System After Debut with 1st Edition Already Sold Out

The new 2021 Ford Bronco has a starting price of $29,995 for the two-door and $34,995 for four-door. The Bronco to be offered with six trims. Five packages can be added on, plus more than 200 accessories make Bronco endlessly customizable.

To say that the 2021 Ford Bronco dominated social media and even the television Monday night would be an understatement. The Bronco’s much-anticipated debut practically broke the internet, had Twitter buzzing and loaded up people’s Facebook feed with photos of the three new Broncos.

Judging from the comments I read from old-school Bronco enthusiasts and even Jeep enthusiasts, Ford has a hit on their hand with the four-door and two-door variants. It’s hard to please everyone, but most of the criticism is minimal and that alone is impressive in today’s day and age.

What was most impressive was the seven million page views in the first two hours for the Bronco reservation site at Ford.com. The traffic was so heavy that the Bronco reservation site eventually crashed. Many insiders are predicting the Bronco will sell out (whatever that number may be) by the end of the month.

To reserve a Bronco you can go to Ford’s website or reserve through any Ford dealer for a $100 hold fee.

With 200 aftermarket accessories, a two-door and four-door version, plus the Bronco Sport, along with seven total trims and five packages, the possibilities are endless as to how you can order your 2021 Bronco. Plus Ford puts their G.O.A.T (go over any terrain) system in each trim. Some offer more G.O.A.T options than others. Plus, the 2.3-liter Ecoboost is standard for most trims. And it’s important to note that the 7-speed manual transmission is only available with the 2.3-liter, not the 2.7-liter Ecoboost which will have a 10-speed automatic.

Let’s take a look at the various trims and packages that will be available for the two-door and four-door Ford Bronco.
