Ford is betting that the new Bronco series of sport utilities will win big in the desert, sending three teams to the women’s only Rebelle Rally in 2021. Shelby Hall and Penny Dale in the 2021 Bronco two-door Wildtrak edition, jumping from their winning X-cross class run last year in the Bronco Sport into the 4×4 class this year. Melissa Fischer and Cora Jokinen, both professional off-roaders, will enter the X-cross class in the 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands edition. And in the 2021 Bronco four-door Badlands edition in the 4×4 class will be newcomers Kathryn Reinhardt and Victoria Bundrant with support from 4Wheel Parts, an off-road accessories supplier.

The Rebelle Rally is a navigation run through grueling desert landscapes in Nevada and California. The rally takes about a week to complete. The Rebelle begins on October 8 and runs through October 16.

“The No. 1 obstacle at Rebelle is your navigation, but the terrain definitely challenges the vehicles and these competitive women too,” said Young, who competed last year as a novice in a Bronco Sport. “This is such a great event to showcase what Bronco and these women off-roaders are capable of in the harshest conditions.”

“We’d love nothing more than to podium a Bronco and a Bronco Sport at the same time,” said Jovina Young, Bronco Sport marketing manager. “What I really like about sending the full family of Broncos is that Rebelle is about taking on different types of terrains and exploring; competitors aren’t just hitting high speeds in the desert. It’s a chance to show Bronco doing a different type of off-roading.”

During preavious years’ Rebelles, we’ve interviewed several of the participants including Emme Hall, Nicole Wakelin, and Alice Chase.

The Chicago Auto Show started this weekend and we were there for the press preview day before it began. This is the first major U.S. auto show in over a year, the last one being, you guessed it, the Chicago show in February of 2020.

Moving to a one-time summer format means that some of the show is outdoors and there is a lot to see and do. Here’s our quick rundown of what to see there.

Ford is revitalizing the F-150 Lightning name, this time as the all-electric pickup that’s been anticipated for a couple of years now. The F-150 Lightning will be fully unveiled on May 19 at Ford World Headquarters and simultaneously at physical and digital locations throughout the U.S. Locales include Times Square in New York City, Las Vegas Boulevard, Twitter, YouTube, and more.

Production of the electric F-150 will commence next spring at the new Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Michigan.

Previously, the F-150 Lightning name was used on a 1990s sport truck powered by a large V8 engine. This time? Electric motors. The unveiling of the new Lightning will happen on May 19 at 9:30 pm EDT.
