2021 Ford Bronco!

Incredible reveal by Ford. They knocked it out of the park. Hoping they integrated flat towing!! Either way, I like.

We bought a used 1970 Bronco in 1971, then a new one in 1976 ... always wished we kept them!

Watched the “reveal.” Love the 2-door. Also hope they are towable.

Yup....if flat towable it will be popular as a toad for sure!!
The Independent Front Suspension is definitely gonna help with the ride both on and off road!

It has its advantages for most, disadvantages for very few, esp for a CJ7 fan

If I still needed a car for work, that could be on my short list instead of a big ol' long bed F250/350

Bronco Sport 4 down?

I cannot find the manual online. Does anyone know if the new Bronco Sport is towable 4 down? If so, what is the process? Thanks!

I was not successful in finding a manual online either. Gathering info from Ford's site on the Bronco & Bronco sport, I predict the Bronco should be towable 4 down as it does have a transfer case. Bronco Sport seemingly does not so I have no idea.

I would assume it has the same drive train as the Ranger, so it should be flat towable in 4x4 configuration. Question is, when will we see adapter plates?

Looking at the dial to shift into 4x4 on the new Bronco it had 2WD, 4Hi, 4LO, and 4Auto. It did not have 4N (neutral). My 2012 F-350 did not have a 4N and I was not able to tow it 4 down.

I hope Jeep brings out their concept Wrangler with the 392 Hemi to compete.

I never was either... live axle, leaf springs and lock outs is true 4x4 to me.

However I was impressed with what IFS was capable of when me and a friend of mine decided to head up a long abandoned and heavily eroded dozer cut up a hillside. He was in an 89 Chevy K5 Blazer and I was in a 94 Chevy K2500 regular cab long bed. He went first and on 3rd try made it up full banzai with a damaged rear quarter panel. My pickup with the IFS walked right up it near effortlessly.

I'm still a live axle guy though. Both my 4x4's have solid front axles and lockouts although one sits on coils. Can't have it all.

Most all new Ford suvs and trucks are flat towable. For the raptor, it’s “neutral” then go into advanced settings, hold the button and then turn the ignition off. Super simple.
