    Ford Is Launching a De Facto Take Over of The Webasto Plant In Plymouth, Mi

    In the last six weeks, dozens of Ford’s people were sent to the Webasto plant in a significant push to meet production goals for the Bronco's removable roof in order to salvage the 2021 model year. Apparently, Webasto itself was unable to sufficiently address all these issues, so Ford needed to jump in, not just with engineers but also with substantial funding.

    Ford CEO Is Optimistic About the Global Chip Shortage That Crippled The Industry

    Let's Talk About 2021 Bronco Fuel Economy

    By now, we know nearly all the relevant information pertaining to the 2021 Bronco. We've been introduced to its technology, trim levels, prices, mechanical specifics, options, and even some aftermarket components. We know that the official Job 1 was on May 3rd and that production will pause later in May, due to a global shortage of computer chips which has significantly affected the automotive industry. We know how much power both the four-cylinder and V6 engines will make, using regular and premium fuel. However, until yesterday we didn’t know what the exact fuel economy figures would be. Now we do.

    Yes, the Bronco has returned  -- and in amazingly historically correct form -- and car buyers are going crazy over it. But for dedicated off-roaders -- precisely the ones Ford wants to steal from Jeep -- racing success is the confirmation they wish to see. That's why racing has been a big part of the Bronco's presence so far, will continue to be in the future, and further investment in racing programs will reward it with even more popularity.
