The fact that Ford is currently working on the possibility of an electrified Bronco is a bit of an unspoken secret. Quite people were somewhat surprised the latest-generation Ford Bronco did not come with an electric powertrain at the time of its launch. Now since the Blue Oval has tasted success with the 2025 Ford Bronco Lightning, it is only natural that the 2025 Ford Bronco Lightning will make an appearance. This is especially true after patent leaks revealed the possibility of a Bronco off-roader that had the roof-mounted, battery pack that could be removed.
Ford might be slow to reveal its latest electric truck however the digital designer Timothy Adry Emmanuel has you covered with this 2025 Ford Bronco Lightning render. With a high-powered engine as well as extreme off-road capability and a long-running range with roof-mounted batteries, the electric Bronco will be ready to take on whatever innovative idea Rivian comes up with. It’s the Ford Bronco Lightning that will be an electric SUV that is worth the wait.
2025 Ford Bronco Lightning Review
This retro-styled Ford Bronco is a massive return to the old model which drove America. It’s easy to see why the Bronco is very popular. Similar to Jeep Wrangler, the Bronco is a perfect match for the right notes for all kinds of people, from extreme off-road enthusiasts to suburban drivers seeking some adventure. The Bronco Lightning render is a perfect example of the spirit of the vehicle with its trails-ready trim, and distinctive electrical blue highlights. There’s no doubt about what drives this Bronco after you’ve seen some of the top features that this vehicle has to offer. The front grille’s design as well as the Tow Hooks Hood Handles, and beadlock wheels sound electric. In case you’ve missed those Lightning logos on doors’ fronts. Also, this ugly Bronco does not have tailpipes.
Also, don’t forget the roof-mounted, removable battery pack. The innovative idea is mounted on top of the roof rack so it is rented or added onto an existing Bronco Electric when a more extended excursion is in the plans. For short drives or trips within the city the roof panels can be removed and transformed into the ultimate current beach buggy since there is no doubt that when you need immediate electronic torque, strenuous conditions are the most useful.
Although Ford hasn’t announced official specifications for details of the Electric Bronco specifications, however, we can be sure that this electric off-roader will get the powertrain of its big sister 2025 Ford Bronco Lightning. The F-150 Lightning full-sized electric pickup truck has a lot of power considering its dimensions. It’s also heavier and heavier, with its F-150 Lightning tipping the scales with a 6,015-pound curb weight, and the extra-range battery building 346 pounds! It’s not a comparison as the base gas-powered Ford Bronco weighs in at 4,070 pounds, and its full-fat Bronco Raptor weighs 5,886 pounds. We’re expecting the electronic Bronco to weigh at least 5,500 pounds if you add the battery pack.
The F-150 Lightning base model gets 452 horsepower from twin electric motors and the range is EPA-certified at 230 miles. With the battery pack for extended range, the figure increases to 580 hp and 775 lb-ft tree-pulling torque and 300 miles range. With its lower weight and smaller size, the 2025 Ford Bronco Lightning may provide up to 325 miles. That’s not even getting access to the battery pack that is removable as well as the extra kWh within it. With this, it would be fantastic to see if that the battery-powered Bronco could exceed an hour of range.
The electronic Ford Bronco also packs twin-electric motors that will provide an intelligent all-wheel drive. It will also have numbers of power similar to that of the F-150 Lightning. If this electric Bronco is equipped with more than 500 horsepower, then it won’t be out of the question to envision it achieving 0-60mph speeds less than those of the 4.0-second threshold. Did someone mention Ford Bronco Raptor?
2025 Ford Bronco Lightning Release Date & Price
With the way that the market has reacted towards the Rivian R1T pickup, the Rivian R1S electric SUV, and Ford’s F-150 Lightning electric truck, Ford should take action and bring the electric Bronco available shortly. The initial rumors included the Bronco EV scheduled to release in 2024 and other rumors suggested it won’t be released until 2029. The earlier timeframe seems more realistic, as this 2025 Ford Bronco Lightning render shows us it doesn’t require a lot of modifications Ford must do to bring it into production.
Jeep is believed it is working to develop an electric Wrangler as well as a hybrid Wrangler 4xe already showing its value on the trails. Also, a new electric Jeep model known as the Recon is believed to be in development that could turn out to be the Ford Bronco’s electric challenger. Whatever the case it’s clear that the Blue Oval should not put off this market segment — electric SUVs with off-roading capabilities are sure to attract buyers.
Particularly if they’re extravagant without the worry of running out of power in the middle of nothing. Yes, Ford could also be patent-trolling everybody with the concept of a battery mounted on the roof that may increase the risk of a rollover however if the power capacity is kept as realistic to provide just under 100 miles range it may be compact and lightweight enough to be safe.
The MSRP starting point of the incredibly desirable basic Bronco 2 door is just $34,890 rising until $87,875 for the Ford Bronco Raptor’s eye-watering $87.875 price cost. Most expensive of the Non-Raptor Bronco model is called its Heritage Limited Edition at $70,990. It’s not too far for us to envision a Ford Bronco Lightning offering a similar range of options that can be picked to meet every budget. If the basic 2025 Ford Bronco Lightning was offered at an affordable price of less than $50,000, it could be a viable alternative to the Tesla Model 3 for a large number of people. Given that the Bronco is already more efficient than the Wrangler on roads with pavement and still offers the same off-road capabilities and a battery-powered Bronco could be the ideal daily electric driver for a large number of people. Let’s go Ford and build it now!
