With wildfires raging, it is time for someone to recognize the effort of those who sacrifice their lives to keep the rest of society from going up in flames. Enter the Ford Bronco x Filson Wildland Fire Rig. Ford is teaming up with Filson to create a special Bronco while supporting the National Forest Foundation simultaneously.
This special edition Ford Bronco combines firefighting equipment with Filson’s rugged materials. Paying tribute to decades of first responders who trust the 4×4 Bronco as a fire and rescue vehicle only tells part of the story.
In a joint effort, Ford and the Bronco Wild Fund are donating two of these Wildland Fire Rigs to help firefighters protect nature, resources and communities. They are also working together to raise funds in an effort to maintain and preserve America’s National Forests.
The Filson Bronco also serves as a concept vehicle for future firefighting rigs based on the four-door version of Ford’s popular SUV. Based on the Bronco Badlands edition, the Filson version blends capability with durability.
With Forest Service Green paint, the Ford Bronco x Filson Wildland Fire Rig pays homage to the first-generation U.S. Forest Service vehicles. It also features a modular steel front bumper along with a WARN winch.
Some of the firefighting equipment includes a Pulaski, water tanks and axes. The Wildland Filson Bronco is capable of doubling as a firefighter lookout as well. In the back you will find a Kimtek FIRELITE Fire Rescue Transport Skid with a Hannay Reels fire hose reel. The included Davey high-pressure water pump and 50-gallon water capacity will never let you down.
Filson leaves their mark all around the interior and exterior of the Fire Rig Bronco. Ford and Filson teaming up to make this Bronco will help fight future devastation from wildfires. This is one tough Bronco, standing fearless to save the wild.
