Ford Bronco chief engineer Eric Loeffler describes the lengths his engineering team went to prevent Ford's new off-roader from inhaling water or mud.

Ford's new Bronco boasts an array of impressive off-road capabilities, not least of which is its 33.5-inch water fording capability. This accomplishment required special effort to achieve, as it is critical to ensure that the engine does not ingest water or mud, despite the truck's likelihood of encountering these conditions.

Chief engineer Eric Loeffler sat down with Design News to explain how his engineering team overcame these challenges to deliver the Bronco that is winning plaudits from off-roaders.
