Ford is sending its full Bronco lineup of all-4×4 SUVs to compete in the 2021 Rebelle Rally – an all-women off-road event that challenges participants to conquer the harsh desert terrains of Nevada and California.

Three two-women teams will compete in a Bronco two-door, Bronco four-door and Bronco Sport at the October event. The rally will start near the Hoover Dam on Oct. 8, wind its way across rugged, parched and perhaps on fire swept terrain in Nevada and California. The finish is at Imperial Sand Dunes in California Oct. 16. Participants spend their nights at designated checkpoint basecamps along the way.
The Bronco Sport and Bronco four-door are Badlands, while the Bronco two-door is a Wildtrak. All three are outfitted in race livery from the Bronco 4600 stock class race vehicle that will run in the ULTRA4 stock class off-road series this year. The Bronco two-door, equipped with the Sasquatch Package, and Bronco Sport vehicles maintain bone stock designation, with second-row seats removed. The 4Wheel Parts team will accessorize the Bronco four-door entry.
To conform to event rules, teams must disable Trail Maps and any other electronic navigation equipment on the Bronco two- and four-door entries. “It’s a chance to show Bronco doing a different type of off-roading,” said Jovina Young, Bronco Sport marketing manager.
