Ford Bronco Terrain Management System

What do you feed a goat? Well, in the case of Ford Bronco™ G.O.A.T. Modes™ (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain), the answer is almost anything the road, or trail, can put on its plate. That means, no matter where the adventure takes you, your Bronco Terrain Management System™ will automatically adapt and optimize its steering, handling and powertrain performance in response.

The Modes include*:

  • Eco – For efficient driving. This mode helps deliver maximum fuel efficiency and helps to increase driving range.
  • Sport – For sporty driving with improved performance handling and response. This mode increases accelerator pedal response and provides a sportier steering feel. The powertrain system holds onto lower gears longer, helping the vehicle accelerate faster.
  • Normal – For everyday driving. This mode is a balance of excitement, comfort and convenience. This is the default mode after each ignition cycle.
  • Mud/Ruts (available) – For off-road driving. This mode enhances vehicle performance to traverse muddy, rutted or uneven terrains. Mud/ruts mode engages the four-wheel drive lock.
  • Slippery – For less than ideal road conditions, such as snow or ice-covered roads. This mode can be used for crossing terrain where a firm surface is covered with loose, wet or slippery material. Slippery mode lowers throttle response and optimizes shifting for slippery surfaces.
  • Sand/Snow – Sand mode is for off-road driving on soft, dry sand or deep snow. Sand mode engages the four-wheel drive lock.
  • Rock Crawl (available) – For optimum rock-climbing ability. Rock crawl mode engages the four-wheel drive lock and the rear differential lock feature. It also activates the front trail camera at slow speeds.
  • Baja (available)** – On Bronco Badlands,™ Wildtrak™ and First Edition models, it optimizes suspension and other systems for improved performance on loose terrain and sand. (Baja mode is not available on Bronco Sport).

*While all eight modes (up to seven in a series) are available on Bronco trims, with Sport featuring five of the seven — Sand, Slippery, Sport, Eco and Normal as standard — Ford Bronco Sport Badlands offers an additional two modes: Mud/Ruts and Rock Crawl, bringing its total to seven G.O.A.T. Modes. **Baja mode replaces Sport mode on Bronco, bringing the total to seven G.O.A.T. Modes.
