If you’re like us, you’ve been waiting since 1996 to get your hands on another Ford Bronco. Who knew that it would take more than 20 years to get there! There have been rumblings and rumors over the past few months as to whether Ford was bringing back the Bronco, but now we know it’s true! Here’s what we know so far about the return of this great SUV.
It has a lot in common with other Ford models: A recent Reddit AMA revealed more about its influences: “It will be very similar to the current Ford Everest…many suspension and powertrain parts will be common between the Ranger and Bronco.” If you’re not familiar with the Everest, don’t worry – it’s Australia’s current Ford SUV, will be a huge point of inspiration for the new Bronco model.
There still isn’t a public Bronco concept: Even at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit they only revealed more graphics of the name. No specifications, dimensions or other details have been revealed.
It will be assembled in the U.S.: Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant will be extra busy in a few years! Ford’s all-American brand holds true, keeping more Michigan residents employed.
It’s not messing around: Ford’s Joe Hinrichs has described the upcoming Bronco as “a no-compromise midsize 4×4 utility for the thrill-seekers who want freedom and off-road functionality, with the space and versatility of an SUV. It’s capable of conquering everything from your daily commute to gravel roads and boulders.” Even a panoramic sunroof option has been confirmed!
We’re more than excited to see more details come out about this SUV. The Ford Bronco already has 30 years of history (and plenty of pop culture references) and we can’t wait for 2020! You’d better believe that we’ll share any info we have about this model, but don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
