Ford Repeats Traditional Jeep Event - But With Its SUVs
Video: Ford Repeats Traditional Jeep Event - But With Its SUVs
Ford showed off four prototypes based on the Bronco SUV and one made from Bronco Sport to showcase their tuning capabilities. The demonstration took place in the same place where the traditional Easter Jeep Safari takes place - in the Mojave Desert of the American state of Utah.
To create prototypes, the concern has attracted several large tuning houses - these are ARB, 4Wheel Parts and RTR, which is led by the famous racer Vaughn Gittin Jr. ARB and RTR built broadly traditional SUVs, outfitting them with reinforced suspensions, new bumpers, 35-inch mud tires and extra lights, and refrigerators in the rear.
4Wheel Parts did the same with Bronco, but their SUV came out of the atelier's boxes equipped with a full-fledged "roof house" - a tent placed on a special pedestal with an integrated ventilation system. In addition, the SUV was installed on 37-inch wheels.
The concept caravan was attended by Bronco and Bronco Sport, prepared by the forces of the Ford concern itself. Its task was to demonstrate a set of accessories, which will join those already available in the company's assortment this summer.
This is not the first time the manufacturer has shown tuning concepts based on the Ford Bronco. For the first time, the firm demonstrated the five modified SUVs back in August last year, and then two more modifications were made public in preparation for the SEMA show.
