A few days ago, e-Car learned from overseas media that Ford Bronco has registered a new patent, which is a front bracket with steering light function. < / P > < p > it can be seen from the official figure released by Bronco in advance that Bronco has a bracket on the front of the car, which can be used as a binding anchor to help fix things when the roof needs to carry things such as canoes and suitcases. < / P > < p > Ford has added new features to this part, with a lighting element attached to the bracket. According to the description of the patent, “the tie down bracket includes at least one light source”, and “in this way, the tie down bracket can be used as a side lamp, a turn signal lamp and other functions”. < / P > < p > similar side lights are used in large off-road vehicles such as Mercedes Benz G-class. In addition to the turn signal function, the small lights placed at the two corners of the hood can also provide visual reference for the driver and help him when driving through narrow obstacles in the field. Although this is not a new technology, the integration of the practical functions of the two off-road vehicles fully demonstrates Ford’s understanding of off-road culture and its emphasis on Bronco models. < / P > < p > the patent has not yet appeared in the Bronco model, but as a hardline off-road vehicle, Ford will launch many professional functional accessories for it, and this bracket with the function of side light may become an option.
