Will the New Ford Bronco Have a Removable Top? 

For the past decade, the Wrangler has been the king of the open-top format, but all that was in the absence of the Ford Bronco. And if you stumbled across this article simply wondering if the new Ford Bronco has a removable top, we should warn you now that you’re in for a lot more. Yes, the Bronco will feature an open-roof format, but the SUV’s unique modular construction opens up an endless array of possibilities. We’ll dig into some of the most prominent advantages here, so keep up with us.

Two Door: The most basic Bronco will have two doors and a standard hardtop with three removable sections: two over the front occupants and a full-width center panel. An available premium painted modular top adds another removable panel over the rear seats and cargo area.

Four Door: The four-door Bronco comes standard with an easily retracting soft top, but a four-section hardtop is also available. Torn between your options? No sweat! The Bronco’s design lets you keep both and use them as you please, so you’ll never be tied down.

How Does It Compare to the Jeep Wrangler? 

The Bronco’s modular frame has a lot more benefits to offer, and this is where we start getting into the nitty-gritty. Arguably the best way of putting things into perspective is by stacking the new Bronco against a long-standing off-roading tyrant – the Jeep Wrangler.  

Doors can be removed in both the new Bronco and the Wrangler, but the Bronco’s side mirrors are mounted directly onto the body so you don’t lose sight of your blind spots when you drop the walls. And here’s another plus – frameless windows allow all four doors to stow away into the Bronco’s cargo area. Jeep has dedicated years to evolving its design to offer the best in open-air freedom, but it looks like the new Ford Bronco has nabbed the title of best open-top off-roader with a package so excellent it has us saying “Sorry Jeep – it’s a Bronco thing!”
