New Ford Bronco Will Sport Removable Doors & Roof — Here's Hpow They'll Work

New patents for American carmaker Ford's reborn Bronco that will arrive in 2020 show off some of the most interesting features of the new SUV in the form of removable doors and roof. According to Automotive News, the all-new Ford Bronco was recently shown to dealers in the United States and is expected to feature a retro design that should appeal to the fans of the classic SUV.

The first set of patents which were unearthed by Motor Trend revealed the removable door setup that may very well be seen on the new Bronco. The patent titled 'Door with convertible scaffolding' shows two different ways that the Ford Bronco's doors can be removed. The first way sees the doors being removed entirely off the hinges, similar to the ones that are offered with the Jeep Wrangler SUV. For the removable doors to work with the rest of the Bronco, the rear view mirrors of the Ford SUV are expected to be pinned to the vehicle's A-Pillars.

The patent also reveals another way for the doors to be removed. This time, the skins of the doors can be removed from the Bronco leaving behind the frames. This means that people on the inside can enjoy the great outdoors without ever having to unscrew a bolt. The frames should also add to the safety quotient of the Bronco, should something unfortunate happen, when the door skins are removed.

The second patent, titled 'Soft top roof of two substances' is what Autoweek claims is what the Bronco's roof could be like. The patent shows a dual-substance (mesh and cloth) soft top that sits under what could be the removable hardtop of the new Bronco. The patent reveals that with the hardtop off, the soft top can be easily rolled forward to form what appears to be a canopy. This should make the bronco the perfect SUV for family's that like to go on an outdoor adventure once in a while. Imagine not having to slave over smashing pegs into the ground to pitch a tent, when your SUV comes with a welcome addition to avoid the heat of the sun.
