FORD BRONCO, BRONCO SPORT PROJECT VEHICLES FOR SEMA DEMONSTRATE PARTS AND PERSONALIZATION POTENTIAL
OCT 22, 2021 | DEARBORN, MICH.

  • Custom Bronco® and Bronco Sport project vehicles bound for the 2021 SEMA Show demonstrate endless possibilities for enhancing and personalizing, with an extensive lineup of lift kits, wheels, racks and more from Genuine Ford Parts, Ford Licensed Accessories* and Ford Performance Parts**
  • Six custom builds – including four Broncos and two Bronco Sports – from noted builders such as Vaughn Gittin Jr. showcase many of the factory-installed Ford Performance Parts components and dealer-installed and aftermarket accessories that make it easier for customers to personalize their vehicles
  • More new Bronco accessories, many available in 2022, help boost off-road performance and customization, including a new front drive unit to support up to 5.38:1 gears, all-new Bronco Method off-road wheels, and performance tuning for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine
DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 22, 2021 – The Built Wild™ Bronco® brand makes its live debut at the annual SEMA Show Nov. 2-5 in Las Vegas, showcasing a diverse lineup of personalized two- and four-door Bronco and Bronco Sport SUVs for everything under the sun, from winter fun to rocky desert trails.

Ford will show off four custom Broncos and two Bronco Sport SUVs from some of the leading builders in the off-road industry at the Ford booth (#22200). Each features examples from the growing list of Genuine Ford Parts, Ford Licensed Accessories and Ford Performance Parts – plus many more aftermarket parts and custom fabricated applications.

“Bronco and Bronco Sport customers love parts and accessories that emphasize performance and off-road lifestyle, so we worked closely with Bronco design and vehicle engineering to deliver the products to match their individual lifestyle,” said Eric Cin, Ford global director, vehicle personalization, accessories and licensing. “Since the reveal last year, we’ve expanded the line to more than 350 Bronco and Bronco Sport parts and accessories and growing.”

All of the Ford components and parts on the SEMA builds – along with the entire catalog of Bronco and Bronco Sport parts and accessories – are now available on the new Ford Accessories website at Accessories.Ford.com.

Thanks to its patented modular design that allows for quick and easy personalization along with the extensive lineup of aftermarket parts, Bronco has been nominated for its first-ever SEMA 4x4 SUV of the Year Award. Results of the SEMA member vote will be announced Nov. 1.

Additional vintage and race Broncos will be on display at Ford Out Front near the main entrance to the Las Vegas Convention Center along with the first-ever Bronco capability course, featuring Bronco Mountain, where attendees and media can experience the off-road capabilities of Bronco and Bronco Sport.

New accessories elevate Bronco performance

Of the many new Bronco parts unveiled at SEMA, front and center is a new Ford Performance Parts front drive unit that supports up to a 5.38:1 gearset – a significant off-road performance upgrade in the first year of Bronco production.

Ford Performance Parts also developed several new Bronco chassis components for the Bronco two- and four-door SUVs, including new severe-duty steering rack and tie rod ends to further improve steering system durability under high loads. The team also created performance tuning for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine that can be uploaded via a Pro-Cal 4 scan tool to the OBDII port.

Ford Performance Parts is also unveiling new aftermarket wheels available at Ford dealers with the 17-inch Method Race Wheel® sets for Bronco. The Bronco-specific 17 x 8.5-inch Method 703 Bead Grip® wheels are made from solid T6 heat-treated A356 aluminum with patented Bead Grip technology for increased tire bead security when running at lower pressures off-road.

Here is a rundown of the six custom Bronco and Bronco Sport builds headed to SEMA:

Sara Morosan, co-owner of LGE-CTS Motorsports, created a rough-and-ready version of a 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands series, adding tons of items from Ford Performance Parts and Ford Licensed Accessories for enhanced capability off-road. From a 2-inch suspension lift and rock sliders, to off-road rock lights and fender flares, the vehicle is equipped for nasty trail adventures.

The exhaust note of the upgraded 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine is enhanced with a Borla® cat-back performance exhaust system. Suspension enhancements include ICON Vehicle Dynamics suspension system and Hellwig Suspension Products front and rear sway bars.

This BAJA FORGED Bronco Sport wears Rigid Light Shop LED lighting, BAJA FORGED front and rear tubular bumpers, plus a Ford Performance Parts roof mounted light bar. A WARN Industries VR EVO winch and Factor 55 hook and aluminum fairlead add toughness on the trails.



2021 Bronco Sport by CGS Performance Products

From a 2-inch suspension lift and rock sliders
And an improved bumper to protect the glass jaw with a winch, apparently.

Gimme.

Seriously, though, anyone have an idea where these are from and if they're actually commercially available, or a custom one-off?

And yet if you go to BAJA FORGED they do not even list the tubular bumpers, etc. HEll they dont even list either Bronco or Bronco Sport on their website for items. Wierd the article says all the accessories are available when you cannot get the bumpers. Cute though, the article drew them on with a pen!

Same thing with HEllwig. BS or Bronco not a choice for their products. I love SEMA but the article is misleading as neither of these companies actually show the ability to buy the suspension, sway, etc.

And of course Ford items are available. All those things we can add during the build.

I was hoping to see a SEMA BS where the non Ford items were actually available.

I wonder if the ECU will need to be relocated if they do offer a commercial steel bumper. Or is it more in the fender part of the wheel well.

Promises, promises.
Hopefully some of these end up being for real.
They are data mining. The best teaser, ‘Cold air intake’ that’s a total waste of money. It is engine jewelry nothing more as your air intake system will simply throttle back colder more dense air to optimum settings as defined by the fuel air intake controller and mapping that is STOCK.

I'm confused. Doesn't the Bronco Sport have only 5 bolts on the wheel? These pictures show 6. I have no expectations and I'm still disappointed.

Looks like a regular Ford project ad graphics and mix and match parts from other Ford's to make it look new.

SEMA shows a lot of one off parts that will never see production. It's a dog and pony show that presents ideas not necessarily real products. Time and interest dictate the future availability of the mods.

Real rock sliders? that would be interesting.
