Ford President and CEO Joe Hinrichs referred to the all-new Bronco as a “no-compromise midsize 4×4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city.” The returning SUV comes as part of a new generation of Ford models that promises to fulfill customer demands for vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive.
2020 Bronco Engine
The Bronco isn’t the only Ford classic to return as part of this new generation of vehicles. The model is being built alongside the 2019 Ranger at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan. A Ranger-based Bronco made an appearance from 1983 to 1990, indicating the two models will once again share the same platform.
Some speculate it will also share the Ranger’s 2.3-liter turbocharged engine, which produces up to 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque when paired with the pickup. What we do know is that the model will be available in two-door and four-door configurations with a removable hardtop and doors.
2020 Bronco Exterior Design
Ford has kept quiet about the model, but loose lips from the inside have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect. Talk of a “retro” design is supported by the Bronco’s boxy silhouette. It’s also said the model sports round headlights and a rectangular grille, also brandishing the title “BRONCO” across the front.
The Bronco will also be released as one of four new SUVs Ford plans to add to the lineup for 2020. Before Bronco’s debut, Ford will be releasing a “Baby Bronco” model in 2020 based on the Ford Escape. The smaller model promises a more road-friendly design compared to its larger counterpart.
