- ford is highlighting a small but significant added option on the 2021 bronco four-door: a slide-out tailgate.
- the tailgate is claimed to add enough length for two people to sleep comfortably inside the bronco, or one person to enjoy an eight-foot-nine-inch space to stretch out diagonally.
- the optional tailgate will be available starting in late 2021.
one of the best things about the 2021 ford bronco is that you can fit it with all kinds of goodies and options. to the list of washable floor mats, grab handles, led light bars, side rock rails, and brush guards, add this space-extending slide-out tailgate. specially for the four-door bronco, it arrives in late 2021 and adds about 14 inches of legroom.
with the front seats forward, there's a total of seven feet, six inches of diagonal space for one camper to stretch out, or six feet, six inches of length for two people to sleep with the tailgate closed. if that doesn't feel like enough, with the slide-out tailgate option, you get more than a foot more length, so that one person stretched out diagonally can enjoy eight feet, nine inches of space or two people can have seven feet, nine inches. the bronco's removable top completes the picture with a sleep-under-the-stars experience.
ford marketing manager mark grueber told car and driver earlier this fall that the automaker will be adding more goodies to the bronco's spec list, saying that "everything from colors and options to special editions" will be announced during the runup to the new vehicle's arrival. so this is surely not the last such add-on that will be highlighted to further entice bronco buyers—as if they needed any more encouragement to want one.
