Not only is the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco ready for adventure, the two- and four-door SUV is garnering international acclaim for outstanding design as well.
Out of nearly 10,000 entries, Germany-based iF International Forum Design GmbH has named Bronco among its top 75 pillars of design across numerous disciplines and industries for elevating the brand and attracting new customers. The design group, which has been recognizing products for design excellence annually since 1953, is honoring the all-new Bronco with its prestigious iF Design gold award 2021 for its “pragmatic, emotional design” that “brings the thrill of its iconic forebear into the 2020s.”
Since reservation-to-order conversions began in January, Ford’s new outdoor brand of Built Wild 4×4 vehicles has converted 125,000-plus orders from the more than 190,000 Bronco two-door and four-door reservations in the U.S. and Canada. Just as important, the all-new 4×4 brand is seeing strong conquest rates, with more than 70 percent of customers new to Ford.
For Wraith and the Bronco Design team, the award validates their efforts to create a modern off-road SUV while maintaining the design simplicity of first-generation Bronco models from 1966-77. Visual cues such as a single-piece grille, round headlamp bisected by a bar with Bronco name, front fender trail sights, and redacted surface language free of superfluous styling or detail were highlighted by iF Design jurors.
