Ford Bronco Pushes Up Out of the Ground Next Spring
It’s been a long hibernation for the Bronco nameplate, but fans of Ford Motor Company’s midsize off-roader don’t have all that long to wait before laying their eyes on the resurrected model.
Ford has announced the public will get its first glimpse of the reborn Bronco next spring.
Much speculation surrounds the returning nameplate, though it’s generally believed that the Bronco will sport two-and four-door bodystyles, a removable roof and doors, and perhaps solid axles from the same supplier tapped by Jeep’s Wrangler. The body-on-frame vehicle might also sport a base, turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant, which isn’t surprising given its Ranger underpinnings.
In a video released Friday, the automaker cranked anticipation to “11,” showing us snippets of past Bronco glory while citing a spring 2020 world premiere. Perhaps attendees of the New York Auto Show will be first to see it? Sadly, there’s no glimpse of the new model to be seen in the video. Past reports, including a source contacted by TTAC, have claimed a fall launch date, though that same source said Ford was attempting to push ahead both the launch and on-sale date. While there’s still no confirmed availability date, the video’s mention of the “2020 Bronco” implies earlier-than-expected deliveries.
A variety of new products launch next year, making for a crowded calendar at Ford. Those new offerings include a Mustang-inspired electric crossover, the next-generation F-150, and a Bronco-inspired, Escape-based compact crossover believed to carry the Bronco Sport name. None of these products are unimportant to Ford, though the Bronco carries the most buzz, to say the least.
