Ford’s Bronco Riptide Build Is An Open-Air 4×4 Designed For Breezy Beachgoing

If you’ve had your fill of Bronco hype, we don’t blame you; Ford has been plugging the SUV’s long-awaited return for months, and pandemic-driven supply issues are only continuing to complicate its arrival. Nevertheless, the Blue Oval’s latest project vehicle is one concept that’s too tasty to pass up.

Dubbed the ‘Bronco Riptide,’ it joins the OG and the Wildland Fire Rig as an effort to demonstrate the platform’s customization potential. In this case, it’s intended for seaside excursions, so it’s based around the four-door Sasquatch model, it wears a coat of brilliant Velocity Blue paint, and it’s shod in a set of marine-grade seats with rubberized washout flooring. Elsewhere, Ford has fitted a Bestop mesh Bimini top, a Yakima rack, as well as some tube doors for a breezy, open-air experience. Of course, the Bronco is much more than a glorified beach buggy, so it rides on 17-inch beadlocks with a set of 35-inch mud-terrain tires for traction and a RIGID LED lightbar to see the way ahead. Rounded out by a pair of custom-mounted Almond surfboards and a prototype steel bumper, this is one SUV that’s sure to stoke your escapism.
