Teasers, spy photos, renderings, leaked photos. We've seen them all for the upcoming 2021 Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport. The hype has been consistently building for the revived off-roader. But has Ford been purposefully sending out test cars and leaking images to garner more attention for the Bronco? It sure seems that way, but we can't be sure. Either way, if you can't wait for the official reveal, we made a timeline of all of the times we've seen 2021 Ford Broncos.

The First Teaser

At the 2017 Detroit auto show, Ford announced that the Bronco would make a comeback. The Blue Oval said that it would arrive in 2020, and we got excited. A year later, they showed us this photo of a boxy off-roader covered by a grungy sheet.

The Mule

We knew that the Bronco would be based on the Ranger pickup, and when we spotted this mule in Dearborn, Michigan, we knew that it was a Ranger underneath. The lifted suspension and meaty off-road tires gave us the impression that this was a Bronco test car.

Photos of the Smaller, Crossover-Based "Baby" Bronco Surfaced

These leaked images, found in 2018, came from a Ford dealer presentation in Las Vegas. They show the smaller Bronco, which, at the time, was referred to as the "baby" Bronco. It'll officially be called the Bronco Sport, we now know.

The First Time We Spied the Bronco Sport Testing

At this time, we still didn't know the Bronco Sport's name. Rumors suggested it was going to be called either the Bronco Scout, Bronco Sport, or Adventurer. We did know that it would be based on the Escape crossover, but with more off-roading intentions.

The 2020 Ford Bronco R

The Bronco R isn't a concept vehicle. It actually competed in the Baja 1000, and at the time it gave us a closer look at the production Bronco's overall shape.

Four-Door Bronco Shows Off-Road Accessories

The Bronco is up against the Jeep Wrangler, and if it wants to compete, there has to be an off-road-focused trim level. That's what we saw here: big tires, a spare one out back, and a lifted suspension. This off-road-focused trim could be called FX-4, and there's no doubting that a Ranger variant is coming down the line.

Two-Door Bronco Mobbin' in the Snow

Like the Jeep Wrangler, the Bronco will come in two- and four-door variants. You'll even be able to take the roof and doors off, too. Ford's coming for you, Jeep.

First Look at the Bronco's Interior

We got a look inside the 2021 Ford Bronco's interior in late February and saw a large touchscreen, terrain controls behind the gear selector, and six toggle switches above the rearview mirror—perfect off-roading accessories.

Leaked Image of the Bronco Sport

The Bronco Sport looks exactly how we expected. It has bold "Bronco" script across the grille, round headlights, a boxy shape, roof rails, and a little more ground clearance than the Escape.

Leaked Image of the Four-Door Bronco

The same day the photo of the Bronco Sport leaked, so, too, did this photo of the four-door Bronco. And, like the Bronco Sport, it looks like our renderings, but with even more stretch to its fenders, and this one doesn't have a spare tire out back.

Leaked Image of the Two-Door Bronco

The Bronco Sport and four-door Bronco weren't alone in the day of Bronco leaks. This two-door Bronco, likely a clay model, leaked, too. Subtle, Ford.

Another Leaked Photo of the Four-Door Bronco

We saw the uncovered four-door Bronco's front end, and now, in these leaked photos, we can see the rear. This one, equipped with a rear-mounted spare tire, shows boxy taillights and a black hardtop with roof rails.
