Ford Bronco Sport Becomes First Vehicle To Feature Parts Made Of 100Recycled Ocean Plastic

Description

Consumer products made from recycled ocean plastics include everything from sunglasses and T-shirts to running shoes and yarn. Now, Ford is adding to its legacy as a leader in sustainability and is the first automaker to use 100% recycled ocean plastics to produce automotive parts.Wiring harness clips in Ford Bronco Sport models are made of ocean-harvested plastic – commonly referred to as “ghost gear.” The strength and durability of the nylon material equals that of previously used petroleum-based parts but with a 10 % cost savings and requiring less energy to produce. The small parts represent a large first step in the company’s plans to produce other parts of recycled ocean plastics on other models.

  • Moray Callum’s 3D scanned First Gen Bronco Feature Video

    After 25 years, the all-new 2021 Bronco has officially returned.Though many vehicle designs start out as 2D sketches and then progress to 3D clay models, the all-new Bronco began its life a bit differently. Many may have noticed that it shares a lot of key design features with the 1966 original. What they may not know is Ford VP of Design Moray Callum’s personal 1976 Bronco inspired the all-new Bronco design -- and it all began using 3D scanning technology on his classic SUV.To develop the design, the team 3D scanned Moray’s Bronco to capture all the design details. The 3D scanner allowed Ford to capture the smallest details, even recording the ‘orange peel’ imperfections in painted surfaces down to thousands of a millimeter. Then, using virtual reality, the team was able to compare Callum’s Bronco side-by-side with the new Bronco themes. This is the same virtual reality technology design directors have been using at home to review vehicle programs through VR goggles.
