Only the MIC hardtop will be available at launch, but fret not because the gloss-black modular hardtop is on the horizon, most likely coming in the latter half of 2021. The Wildtrak rides on 35-inch rubber and beadlock-capable wheels because it comes with the Sasquatch Package as standard. The range-topping EcoBoost V6 with 310 HP and 10-speed auto are also featured.
Devoid of Rock Crawl mode, rock rails, or rock sliders, the Bronco in Wildtrak flavor is geared for bashing dunes into submission rather than difficult trails.
If you take a close look at the passenger-side front door handle at the 2:55 mark, it will become apparent that you’re looking at a pre-production prototype. More to the point, the door-handle button is backward. A YouTube commenter asks himself what was Ford thinking when they built this Wildtrak, and I’m pretty curious about the button’s location as well.
Issues with build quality are excusable with a demonstrator mule, but lest we forget, the Bronco Sport is already under recall. More to the point, exactly 1,666 units were produced with rear suspension modules that may not be fully secured to the subframe over loose or missing bolts.
As we’re waiting here for the first series-production Broncos to start delivery in June 2021, here’s hope the Blue Oval will improve quality control by then.
