That leaves tons of area for the remainder of your gear within the again. How a lot area? 77.6 cubic toes with the second row folded and the optionally available hardtop. That goes as much as 83 cubic toes with the tender prime.
So, there you go. The 2021 Ford Bronco four-door is a roomy beast, and you’ll stay up for exhibiting off your soft-off-road tenting journeys on the ‘Gram or take pleasure in continued survival in some type of Pink Daybreak-esque survival state of affairs.
