Ford Bronco Sport Akan Datang Untuk Pembeli ASEAN

Adakah Ford akan membawa masuk SUV sporty ini ke pasaran kita?

Nama Ford Bronco bukanlah sesuatu yang baru bagi pembeli Amerika Utara. Ia pertama kali dilancarkan kira-kira 55 tahun yang lalu pada tahun 1965, ia adalah ‘money maker’ untuk Ford Amerika Utara.

Kemudian pada bulan Jun 2020 selepas pelaburan pembangunan USD1 bilion yang besar dan tanpa model baharu selama hampir 24 tahun, Ford Bronco serba baharu dilancarkan dalam dua varian. Ditujukan untuk pasaran Amerika dan dijual dengan larisnya walaupun dengan wabak Covid-19. Bronco direka untuk menyaingi Jeep Wrangler dengan penampilan ‘segar’ dan menarik dengan dinamik jalan raya yang lebih baik.

Kini, lima bulan selepas pelancarannya, Ford memperkenalkan Bronco Sport. Ini adalah Bronco SUV kecil yang direka untuk pengembara yang mahu kembali ke jalan dan laluan yang jarang dilalui.

Dengan gaya tersendiri Bronco dan kemampuan yang tidak terhingga, varian SUV Bronco dua pintu dan buat pertama kali, SUV empat pintu menjadi ahli keluarga baharu dengan idea keseronokan tersendirinya. Seperti semua Bronco, 4 × 4 adalah standard, dan SUV lasak ini dirancang untuk menangani apa sahaja pengembaraan hujung minggu yang diingini oleh pemiliknya.

Sekarang, versi Bronco ini mungkin akan menuju ke Asia Pasifik pada tahun 2021 dan inilah sebabnya.

Casisnya dibina di atas rangka keluli kotak penuh pikap Ranger dengan suspensi depan yang bebas. Rear axlenya dipasang dengan lima locating links untuk coil springnya dan kedua-dua hujungnya dikawal oleh shock absorber external reservoir Bilstein off-road.

Enjin asas Bronco Sport adalah enjin 181-hp, 190 lb.-ft., 1.5-litre EcoBoost inline 4-cylinder, dan terdapat juga enjin 245-hp, 275 lb.-ft. 2.0-litre EcoBoost I-4. Kedua-dua versi enjin menggunakan kotak gear automatik 8-kelajuan.

Harga di Amerika Utara bermula dari USD28,155 hingga USD32,160 iaitu sekitar RM113,760 hingga RM129,942 sebelum cukai yang bermaksud dengan adanya kilang pemasangan di ASEAN, kita dapat melihat Bronco Sport baharu di Malaysia ini dengan harga kurang dari RM270,000. Nak?

Tidak perlu meyakinkan jurutera Ford Motor untuk membina versi pacuan kanan kerana Ford Australia sudah berusaha untuk membina versi pacuan kanan Ford Bronco dan juga trak pikap Ford F-150. Cerita ini dariu bulan Julai 2020 lagi ketika kedua-dua kenderaan tersebut mengisyaratkan pasaran IMG Ford yang merujuk kepada pasaran serantau Ford yang merangkumi Australia, New Zealand, India, Thailand, Malaysia dan negara-negara ASEAN lain.

KENYATAAN MEDIA

Ford Bronco Sport is smartly designed to transport two mountain bikes standing up in its cargo area – and two cyclists up front. Four available accessory bundles – in addition to more than 100 factory-backed standalone accessories – let owners easily make the vehicle their own by outfitting it to transport kayaks, skis, camping equipment or whatever gear propels their adventure.

Five trim levels are available, including the base model, Big Bend™, Outer Banks™, Badlands™ and First Edition™.

Built Wild 4×4 confidence

Like the larger Bronco, the all-new Ford Bronco Sport delivers the 4×4 off-road capability that made the original Bronco a legend. With off-road performance at its core, Bronco Sport provides solid footing on sand, snow, mud, rocks and more.

Bronco Sport’s suspension can take on rugged terrain and is complemented by Ford’s trail technologies. The small SUV’s Terrain Management System™ with up to seven available G.O.A.T. Modes™ helps drivers “go over any type of terrain” and in various conditions. Standard modes include Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery and Sand; Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl modes are available on Badlands and First Edition.

Class-exclusive Trail Control™ technology furthers the vehicle’s off-road prowess. The available feature enables a cruise control-like setting up to 20 mph forward and 6 mph in reverse for vehicle-controlled throttle and braking, letting the driver stay focused on navigating the trail.

For adventurers taking on rough and rocky terrain, the small SUV’s design includes made-for-the-trails departure, approach and breakover angles. An available class-exclusive front off-road camera with lens washer serves as a spotter and helps provide better visibility of the trail ahead, displaying the video on the center stack-mounted touch screen.

In Rock Crawl mode, the electronic power steering assist system is uniquely calibrated to provide more precise control and help reduce steering wheel disturbance during low-speed maneuvers over rocky terrain.

Off-road capability is further reinforced by four steel bash plates, plus available frame-mounted front tow hooks that can individually withstand static loads up to 100 percent of the gross vehicle weight. Badlands and First Edition can wade through up to 23.6 inches of water.

Thrilling performance borne of Bronco DNA

The Badlands and First Edition series are powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine that produces a targeted best-in-class 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque for high-speed off-road performance. Base, Big Bend and Outer Banks series feature the proven 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine with a targeted 181 horsepower and 190 lb.-ft. of torque.

Both engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while Ford Bronco Sport Badlands and First Edition add SelectShift® with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters to help drivers maximize control both on- and off-road. A cooling system with additional transmission and rear-drive coolers keeps 2.0-liter models running strong over tough terrain.

The Badlands series comes standard with 28.5-inch all-terrain tires. First Edition comes standard with 29-inch all-terrain off-road tires with more aggressive, deeper treads that stretch on to the sidewalls for improved off-road traction.

Ready for fun to venture into the wild

Human-centered design led to special Ford Bronco Sport features such as class-exclusive liftgate LED floodlamps – because out in the wild, there are no streetlamps – MOLLE straps to carry extra gear, zippered seatback pockets for additional stowage, and even a built-in bottle opener in the cargo area.

Smart in addition to being rugged, the vehicle features a SYNC® 3 system with an 8-inch touch screen and compatibility with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Other available technology features include Ford+Alexa and SiriusXM™ satellite radio.

The Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of advanced driver-assist technologies is standard across the lineup, including Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking featuring Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support, Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Auto High Beam Headlamps and a rearview camera. Available Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ technology includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane-Centering, Evasive Steering Assist and voice-activated touch screen navigation. Available Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist 2.0 technology adds Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane-Centering and Speed Sign Recognition.
