The 2021 Ford Bronco RTR Fun-Runner Fits Its Billing


The 2021 Ford Bronco RTR Fun-Runner Fits Its Billing

While the Ford Bronco RTR has been around for a bit, it wasn’t the fully off-road optimized version that debuted at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This is the Ford Bronco RTR Fun-Runner, the RTR made for the ultimate off-road adventure. With longer travel, wider fenders, big 37-inch tires, this Bronco was built wild and made for high-speed desert fun.

Taking his experience in off-road racing and building high-performance vehicles for Ford, Vaughn Gittin Jr. has come out with a Bronco Badlands that might just rival the new Bronco DR but remain street-legal. The two-door model uses the EcoBoost 2.3-liter turbocharged I-4. The 2021 Ford Bronco RTR Fun-Runner was designed well before its debut to the world.

How? The Bronco Fun-Runner was actually hiding in plain sight all along as the Fun-Runner Ranger, as it used Bronco underpinnings and prototype parts for the Fun-Runner Bronco. This allowed full development of the Fun-Runner without showing off the true, finished product. “I am so pumped to finally reveal the Ford Bronco RTR Fun-Runner and the real back story of the Fun-Runner Ranger,” said Vaughn, 2021 Ultra4 4400 Champion and the leader of the RTR and Fun-Haver brands, “we covertly used it from Johnson Valley to Moab in order to learn and develop this package for the Bronco.”

Anyone who knows Vaughn knows he truly gets excited over things like the Fun-Runner projects. The Fun-Haver Off-Road is Vaughn’s newest brand since RTR and caters mostly to the off-road market.
