Whether you fancy biking, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, or camping, the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is designed to take you to your adventure point. Thanks to a continued partnership with aftermarket retailer Yakima, a number of dealer-installed accessories will be made available to Bronco Sport buyers to aid in their adventure-seeking.

Ford has broken the accessories into five bundles in an aim to make decision-making easier. Bronco Sport customers also can build their own accessory bundles.

"Every adventure is unique, just as every Bronco Sport owner is unique, and with these accessory bundles it's easier than ever to make sure your vehicle fits your lifestyle," said Jovina Young, Bronco Sport marketing manager. "Before it even leaves the showroom, your Bronco Sport is a true reflection of you."

Additional accessories for the Bronco Sport are available on the Ford website. Ford and Yakima partner on on accessories for a number of vehicles, including the Ranger and Explorer. Contact your local dealer for pricing.

Ford has also made a variety of equipment packs available for its truck line recently. The Super Duty Tremor, F-150 Tremor, and Ranger Tremor are all now part of the lineup and add more off-road prowess to the company's already-capable stable. Ford also gave Ranger buyers additional options should they choose to get a Ranger with two-wheel drive, and F-150 owners can add a leveling kit to their last-gen F-150.

Lincoln will not make a performance variant to compete with Cadillac.

Lincoln

TheLincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade have been duking it out at the top of luxury SUV rankings for decades, but there’s one area of the Caddy’s development that Lincoln won’t touch. In a recent interview, a company executive told Ford Authority that it has no plans to create a performance variant of the Navigator to compete with the upcoming Escalade V from Cadillac.

That means the Navigator will stick with the powertrain it’s carried for years, which is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that makes 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with a smooth ten-speed automatic and either rear- or four-wheel drive. While there’s more than enough power to get the hulking Lincoln moving, it’s not a powertrain that inspires excitement or engagement, and though beefy, it’s tuned much more for comfort and quietness than drama.

Though more than adequate, those specs are a far cry from the numbers we expect from the Escalade V. The full-size bruiser from Cadillac is expected to get a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, similar to the unit seen in the CT5-V Blackwing and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We don’t know power numbers yet, but the engine should deliver horsepower and torque numbers in the high 600s.

Cadillac Escalade VThe Escalade V will be massively powerful. Cadillac

That Lincoln is taking a different approach isn’t surprising. The automaker has already announced its intention to go all-electric, so pouring more time and resources into creating a performance gas-powered SUV isn’t in line with its goals. Company executives have also expressed a desire to avoid imitating rivals, so the decision to leave a performance Navigator behind is not surprising.

First-year Ford F-150 Lightning production numbers doubled
Ford

Ford has begun serial production of the new F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck, marking what could be one of the most important days in recent automotive history. The first trucks rolled off the assembly line at Ford's Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Michigan today, so America's best-selling truck has finally gone electric. Ford wants to sell two million EVs per year by 2026 and have half of its global sales volume to be electric by 2030.

Ford has seen extreme demand for the trucks, with 200,000 reservations since the books opened. To deliver, the automaker plans to increase production to an annual rate of 150,000 units by next year, which involved huge investments in the Rouge Center and created hundreds of jobs. Ford's total investment for the F-150 Lightning crests $1 billion across Michigan alone, and has created 1,700 jobs across various facilities in the state.

Though the Lightning starts around $40,000, the most mainstream models will cost much more than that. The F-150 Lightning Pro, while affordable, is a stripped-down truck intended for commercial buyers. It's still a forward-looking electric truck with amazing capabilities, but it lacks much of the creature comforts and features that everyday drivers expect. Higher trims get the latest driver assistance features, including BlueCruise, which is Ford's semi-autonomous hands-free driving assistant. A 12-inch touchscreen is standard, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and more.
