The Ford Bronco Instagram account let a bit of news slip out today. We now know what the face of the 2021 Ford Bronco will look like.

In a short video teaser, a CGI version of the Bronco sits in the dark. Crickets chirp in the background. Then, a thrust of sound. The headlights turn on. Whamo, blamo, that's the Bronco. Watch it for yourself below.

Here's what AutomotiveMap's team noticed.

The headlights and circular with horizontal lines of high beams that run through the center. It's hard to see the model coming with anything other than standard LED headlights with that dynamic a signature.

The "Bronco" is across the grille, perfectly spaced. The lettering itself doesn't look illuminated but it does appear silver and sit on a black grille, which isn't perfectly rectangular.

Then we scrolled down. Below the new video on @FordBronco, there's another image. Flanking a vintage Bronco are photos of the front right and left of the model. Here you can see knobby tires, flared fenders, black housing around the headlights, and extended folding black mirrors. The lighting is able to be seen a little better in these photos and is almost certainly all-LED.

The body appears like spy photos have been showing for years - upright and square-like - exactly how you'd want a Bronco to be.

The wait to see the Bronco is nearly over. The model now debuts on July 13 after a bit of a brouhaha surrounding its original debut date and its link to O.J. Simpson. Stay tuned to AutomotiveMap for more teaser analysis leading up to the big day.

New off-roader

The time is finally here. After years of speculation and several months of pandemic-related delays, the Ford Bronco is starting to roll off the assembly line. The SUV marks the first new Bronco model in Ford's lineup in 15 years, not counting the Bronco Sport, and is one of the most hyped and sought-after vehicles to hit the market in quite some time. Ford's announcement that production has begun will be accompanied by a special YouTube presentation that Ford says will include interviews with the Bronco team and with reservation holders at the automaker's new Modification Center.

Bronco production has driven Ford to invest $750 million into its Michigan Assembly Plant, and the automaker says it has added 2,700 jobs to support the rollout. Ford's push to begin production can't come soon enough. Over 125,000 Bronco orders have been placed, and multiple delays have pushed the vehicle's arrival back, meaning there is considerable demand for the off-road legend.

Ford is ready to capitalize on the craze and will offer several ways to customize the new vehicle. At its 1.7 million square-foot Modification Center, The Blue Oval will factory-install several optional modifications that include equipment such as a front bumper safari bar, graphics packages, roof racks, and more. That's on top of more than 200 factory-backed accessories that can be installed at the dealer, either at or after the time of purchase.

If you are hoping to get behind the wheel of a new Bronco, it could be a while. Even buyers that have been in line for a while now might not see their new vehicle until late 2021 or 2022, and the vehicle's official rollout will almost certainly re-spike demand. Even so, many feel it's worth the wait, and Ford's vehicle configuration tool is live, so go check it out for yourself.

Musical artist H.E.R. has worked with Honda designers to customize a Civic Type R.

H.E.R. graced the stage at the 2021 Honda Civic Tour but before that happens, the R&B singer-songwriter has put her stamp on a custom-designed Honda Civic Type R. This one-off is part of a longstanding tradition of Civic Tour headliners designing a custom Civic.

The unique-looking model is a reflection of H.E.R.'s personal values. Nuance, subtlety, and "sharing your heart" are held high. This all starts with the car's exterior where a deep black matte finish washes over the model while chameleon-tinted headlamps and windows, purple brake calipers and nebula painted trim are presented as intriguing highlights.

Designers worked to customize the cabin as well, adding nebula painted accents and special LED interior lighting that changes colors based on music and sound inside the vehicle by featuring custom colors, moods, brightness levels and rotating color patterns, adjustable by a smartphone.

"One of the things that drew me toward the Honda Civic Tour was knowing that I'd be able to design my own vehicle, and out of all Civics, I picked the pinnacle Civic Type R," said H.E.R. "Infusing my personality into all aspects of my performances, and also expressing it through my favorite products, is something that I am passionate about. So being able to create and share my custom Honda Civic Type R with my fans is just so special to me."

H.E.R.'s custom Civic Type R joins Honda vehicles designed by past Civic Tour headliners, including Maroon 5, OneRepublic, Demi Lovato, blink-182, Black Eyed Peas, One Direction, Charlie Puth and more.
