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.

If you didn't know that Aznom was making a vehicle they call a "hyper-limousine", you aren't alone. Most Americans have never heard of Aznom, a luxury car customizer. You may be hearing more about them soon.

The Monza, Italy-based company is looking to create a vehicle that can be used by heads of state that employs the opulence of luxury automobiles from the 1930s. The vehicles Aznom admires had voluminous dimensions and all-terrain capability.

Azonm says that Palladium is "without a doubt a surprising vehicle and, in the manufacturer's intentions, is set up to fill an interesting and exclusive niche."

Palladium's designers have described the car as a "hyper-limousine" that unites the traditional characteristics of a luxury sedan with dynamic drive qualities. Aznom lists the desirable sedan features as comfort, materials and manufacturing quality, ample space, and reliability. They also describe the Palladian as "powerful, strong and unstoppable like a true all-wheel drive off-road vehicle".

The model was designed by Alessandro Camorali and his Camal Studio, which is based in Torino, Italy. He took inspiration from classic Greek and Roman style.

The vehicle's proportions are large. It's nearly two meters tall and six meters long. That's slightly bigger than the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Aznom is committed to creating a small series of Palladium vehicles.

The official unveiling of Aznom Palladium is scheduled for the last week in October in Milan, during the Milano Monza Open Air Motor Show.

In a memo to dealers, Ford has announced that it is lowering the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of its 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, the long-awaited all-electric crossover.

According to a post on the Mach-E forum, the price of the Mustang Mach-E will be $1,000 to $3,000 than initially promoted. The memo states that the Mustang Mach-E Premium will be $3,000 lower than initially anticipated with the all-wheel drive version dropping to $50,800 and rear-wheel drive model now coming in at $48,100.

The Mach-E First Edition, a sold-out top-of-the-line model, will get a $1,000 price deduction. That same drop applies to the Mach-E Select, the base model. That base model has a 230-mile range. Higher price point versions of the Mach-E can achieve up to 300 miles of range.

The price of each vehicle includes a $1,100 delivery charge. Customers are eligible to receive a $7,500 federal tax credit with purchase.

Pricing will apply to all models that have been ordered since the Mach-E was unveiled at the 2019 L.A. Auto Show. The first deliveries of the crossover are expected to arrive in customer hands later this year.

How does the new price compare? The freshly-unveiled Volkswagen ID.4 will start at $41,990 including the cost of delivery, making it about $2,000 less than the new price of the Mach-E Select, which comes in at $43,995 for front-wheel drive models and $46,695 for all-wheel drive variants. The ID.4 will get up to 250 miles on a single charge.

The Tesla Model Y comes in at $49,990 but has more range than the Mustang Mach-E at 316 miles on a single charge and comes standard with all-wheel drive.

Ford and Volkswagen vehicles will rely on private charging opportunities. Both companies have recently announced partnerships with Electrify America, which has two cross-country charging routes available and is working to rapidly install charging stations at private enterprises and in public spaces nationwide.

Volkswagen ID.4 buyers get three years of free charging with purchase. Mustang Mach-E owners get 250-kilowatt-hours of free charging when they buy a Mach-E.

Tesla has a fully built-out electric vehicle charging infrastructure that allows for fast charging of the Model Y. With that capability it can relain 158 miles of charge in just 15 minutes while at a Supercharger. There are 17,000 Superchargers worldwide and six new locations open each week according to the Tesla website.
