Ford’s 4600 Race Truck Was Inspired By The 1969 Baja 1000-Winning Bronco

Having only just unveiled its extreme 4400-series rally truck for the 2021 King of the Hammers, Ford is already back with a second serving of some Bronco-based radness. Granted, the other vehicle bore little resemblance to the stock SUV; however, this time it’s decidedly more similar to its namesake.

Meet the Bronco 4600, Ford’s Ultra4 stock class-competing race truck. In contrast to the 4400 Unlimited Class entrant, it shares many of its components with the Sasquatch-specced Bronco production car. As such, under the hood, it features a 2.7L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 mated to a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, a combination slated to make some 310hp and 400lb-ft of torque. And that’s not all — it also borrows the second-generation T-6 chassis, making it an ideal poster car for the platform’s potential. But when it comes to the suspension, Ford has definitely kicked things up a notch. With its High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension (HOSS) system — including everything from Fox coilovers to a Dana AdvanTEK e-locking differential to a set of Method Race Wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich mud-terrain KM3 tires — the 4600 comes well-prepared for race day dominance. Good thing too, considering it’s wearing livery inspired by the 1969 Baja 1000-winning Bronco.
