Ford has revealed a trio of all-new Bronco race trucks that will compete in this year’s King of the Hammers off-road race with an all-star driver lineup.
The new Bronco race trucks will race in the Ultra4 4400 Unlimited class, featuring a fully custom tubular chassis and the first-ever FIA certified Pro Racer XL ORV race shell by Recaro, designed in the theme of the Bronco R Race prototype.
Ford’s new race trucks will be raced by Vaughn Gittin Jr., two-time King of the Hammers winner Loren Healy, and three-time winner Jason Scherer.
The King of the Hammers, which runs February 2-6 in Johnson Valley, California, consists of 90-mile courses across high-speed desert sands, and low-speed rock crawling across tricky terrain. It’s considered to be one of the most extreme off-road races, with 450 teams expected from around the world in both modified stock and extreme off-road vehicles.
“King of the Hammers inspired us to ensure every production Bronco model delivers the capability, durability, and high-speed off-road experience this growing off-road enthusiast community has been trying to create on their own,” said Mark Grueber, Bronco marketing manager. “These Bronco 4400 race trucks underscore our commitment to the Bronco Built Wild capability and innovation in the red-hot off-road racing scene.”
