Australia's ARB 4X4 Accessories has developed a range of factory-approved accessories for the incoming Ford Bronco four-wheel-drive.

Ford unveiled the initial range of manufacturer-backed, aftermarket-developed accessories for the Bronco and Bronco Sport, which also included American-based brands RTR Vehicles and 4-Wheel Parts.

ARB's airbag-compliant bullbar and rear bar have been developed in conjunction with Ford, incorporating recovery points and a light bar, with a design to improve off-road clearance and protection.

The ARB-accessorised Ford Bronco is also fitted with heavy-duty rock sliders and a differential cover, as well as a cargo area fitout.

“These accessories represent years of design and engineering collaboration with the Ford team to build parts driven by the Bronco SUV off-road heritage and styling,” said ARB USA president Doug Pettis.

“This design represents a practical yet capable vehicle that improves performance and enhances comfort off-road.”

Other accessories include different style bumpers and winch bars, driving lights, suspension components and interior accessories.

Even though the incoming Ford Bronco uses the Australian-developed T6 Ranger platform, don't expect a right-hand-drive Bronco to be developed any time soon.

Returning after a 25-year hiatus, the all-new Ford Bronco became instantly popular after its unveiled in July 2020.

Ford has since reported 165,000 refundable deposits for the new Bronco, from keen American punters.

Signalling their intent against the incumbent king of off-roading, Ford unveiled this news during the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. This event has been historically dominated by Jeeps and Jeep enthusiasts, but is not brand-exclusive.

Founded in Australia in 1975, ARB 4X4 Accessories recently posted a half-year profit margin of $54 million, representing a 113.5 per cent increase from the previous comparable period.
