Ford Scratches Our Off-Road Itch With the Bronco Badlands Sasquatch Concept

This beefy Bronco concept looks like an absolute monster.

The Sasquatch package is a must for 2021 Ford Bronco buyers who want to maximize their off-road potential. And it's even more appealing now that Ford has expanded its availability to manual-transmission Broncos. Now, Ford is debuting the 2021 Bronco Badlands Sasquatch two-door concept, complete with beefier front and rear fenders that can be removed after off-roading expeditions and converted back to a less extreme spec for comfortable commuting during the week.

As a true Sasquatch, the concept SUV features the obligatory lift kit as well as 17-inch wheels wrapped around Nitto Trail Grappler mud-terrain tires. On top of that, special lighting, rock sliders with custom steps, and a Warn Industries Xenon 10S winch aid in off-road adventuring. Ford also stripped off the doors in favor of edgy step-over replacement panels.

The gray and orange exterior design is complemented by a soft-top roof with no sides and a dune flag mounted on a custom bracket. Inside the cabin, you'll find custom 3D-printed interior grab handles, custom bolt heads, and a miniature Bronco mounted on the dash. Other goodies include a tent, fire extinguisher, off-road assistance kit, and Harman sound bar located on the rear header.

Under the hood, the concept gets the Bronco's upgraded 2.7-liter V-6 engine, which is good for 310 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed through a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Along with the Bronco Sasquatch concept, Ford will debut a Bronco Sport concept that's bent on maximizing overlanding capability. The Blue Oval will also introduce F-150, Ranger Tremor, and Mustang Mach-E concepts.
