The American automaker filed an application for a patent. Ford registers design quick release doors. Though in the description of the patent and had not once mentioned the word Bronco, a sketch of the SUV, which shows the construction of doors, very similar to the Bronco R.
In may 2018, Ford motor company has filed a patent application, which will be discussed in this article. However, it was published recently. Of course, these documents to design a removable door there is not a single mention of the word Bronco. However, the sketch of this particular SUV, for example, which seems a new door is very similar to the SUV Bronco R, which was created to participate in the rally.
In the description of the patent application specifically referred to the outer door, which “is attached a removable way to the hinge using at least one mechanism quick connect”.
Without going too deep into legal patents, it seems that this design includes an internal tubular door that contains the door handle and electrical switches for electric Windows and locks. The outer door is attached to the inner tubular structure via various quick release latches that allow you to quickly remove the door trim. The inner part of the design is firmly fixed in its place, providing some degree of protection.
Whether these doors are designed for the new Bronco, is still unknown, but we will not be surprised to see that this is true. The official presentation of the SUV will happen in the next month.
