To help kick off Bronco Super Celebration East, staged in Townsend, Tennessee, and billed as the largest gathering of vintage Broncos in North America, Ford has trotted out the Overland concept version of its new 4×4 off-roader.

“With personalization and factory-backed accessories essential to Ford’s all-new outdoor brand, the Bronco Overland concept showcases how the all-new Bronco two-door, four-door and Sport models are designed to help redefine the next generation of off-road vehicles,” the automaker said.

“Based on a 2021 Bronco four-door SUV Badlands series painted in Area 51 color scheme, the concept is fully equipped inside and out to take adventurers farther into the wild. 

The Bronco Overland features the High-Performance Off-road Stability Suspension (H.O.S.S., get it? Sort of for Bronco what Boss was for Mustang) with Bilstein position-sensitive shocks, a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine linked to a 7-speed manual transmission, and 17-inch Fifteen52 Turbomatic heavy-duty wheels in asphalt black with 35-inch BFGoodrich LT315/70R-17 mud-terrain KM3 tires.

The concept also has a Ford Performance by Warn winch mounted to a Ford Performance steel bumper. There’s also a 2-person Yakima tent, Rigid rack-mounted light bar and six additional Rigid pod lights for 360-degree illumination.

Designed as a basecamp, the vehicle also has a CB radio, refrigerator, stove, cooking kit, tailgate table and chairs, as well as special cargo-area storage grids.
