Rumored to return for what seems like decades, Ford at the 2017 North American International Auto Show announced they were bringing the Bronco back. This year, they teased us with some photos and confirmed some aspects of it. Here’s everything we know so far.
Body on frame
The 2020 Bronco will be a body-on-frame SUV. It’ll share the same platform that sits underneath the new Ford Ranger, set to hit dealerships in January of 2019.
Body-on-frame construction implies that it’ll be more serious than some of the other company’s off-road capable vehicles. Remember, the Jeep Wrangler JL is also a body-on-frame vehicle.
The new 2020 Bronco should retain a boxy design similar to the 2004 concept and the previous two production generations of the Bronco. The teaser image used to whet our appetites earlier in the year show a boxy design underneath a dirty cover.
What we don’t yet know
Everything else. We can only make guesses on everything from what will power the new Bronco to when it’ll debut to the public.
We expect a reveal either at the 2018 Los Angeles International Auto Show or the 2019 North American International Show in Detroit.
We also wouldn’t be surprised if one of the engine options is the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder that is the only current engine offering in the new Ford Ranger for U.S. consumption.
We’ll continue to update this post as we learn more, so give it a bookmark.
