Rugged Underbody Protection

An available upgraded steel front bash plate, engine/transmission and transfer case shields and fuel tank bash plate are added to higher-capability models. For those taking on the roughest, rocky terrain, Bronco’s available side rock rails are strong enough to support the weight of each side of the vehicle.

HOSS Systems Overview

Every Ford Bronco® SUV comes with one of four HOSS (High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension) Systems. The HOSS System is the set of finely tuned components (springs, shocks and solid rear axle) that literally support your Bronco and keep its tires firmly planted on the ground.

Off-Road Hero Switches

Depending on trim or options, just a push of a button engages the available front locking differential, the available rear locking differential, available sway-bar disconnect or the available Trail Turn Assist.

Electronic Front and Rear Locking Differential

For additional control in uneven, rugged and slippery terrain, standard electronic front and rear locking differentials allow both wheels on an axle to rotate at the same speed and evenly apply the same power. This is an important feature when traversing rugged, uneven off-road terrain. The Ford Bronco® features a Dana 44 AdvanTEK® solid rear axle and Dana AdvanTEK independent front differential unit (standard/non-locking). The available locking differentials are Spicer® Performa-TraK. Bronco Raptor features a Dana 44 AdvanTEK M210 independent front suspension with Spicer® Performa-TraK electronic locker and a Dana 50 heavy-duty AdvanTEK M235 solid rear differential with Spicer® Performa-TraK electronic locker.

Front Stabilizer Bar Disconnect

For extreme rock crawling, you want your front tires to be able to move up and down independently from one another. The available stabilizer bar disconnect feature helps them do just that. So, for you to move freely over rugged, uneven terrain, the system (when engaged in Rock-Crawl Mode or manually), disconnects over uneven terrain — providing maximum articulation. The system offers a unique-to-the-class design* and has a disconnect function regardless of articulation. The Bar can also be reconnected automatically when speeds exceed 20 mph on Badlands and 50 mph on Raptor. Standard on Badlands and Raptor.
