Default Ford Bronco Prototype R Mechanical Woes Keep It From Baja 1000 Finish

Though they set out with the best of intentions at the 2019 Baja 1000 off-road enduro held recently in Baja California, the team running the Ford Bronco Prototype R just couldn't compete with rain, mud, dodge-'em-car traffic, and mechanical problems. The result was a DNF (Did Not Finish). Don't worry they are planning a return in 2020's enduro, this time with a better-prepared entry.

When the green flag dropped on the 2019 Baja 1000, one of the vehicles that set out on the grueling run through some of the toughest terrains in the world was a Ford Bronco Prototype.R It DNF’d. There were several reasons it didn’t finish, according to a recent Trucks.com piece quoted by the folks at Autoblog, but mostly it was the rain that played havoc with the Ford Bronco Proto R. The Ford engineering team fielded the Ford Bronco Prototype R to mark the automaker’s win in the Baja 1000 50 years ago. It also looks like Ford is about to drop the prototype label from the Bronco as Torque News reporter Jimmy Dinsmore details in Torque News.
