- ford's official teaser video confirms that the new ford bronco will make its debut next spring.
- the 2020 ford bronco will be based on the next-generation ranger pickup and is targeted at the jeep wrangler.
- the new bronco will go on sale sometime next year as a 2020 model.
ford will finally show the new bronco to the world in spring 2020, the company announced in a teaser video. the video chronicles the bronco’s history, which began in the 1960s and continued until the 1990s when the nameplate was discontinued. it also shows the 2020 ford bronco’s logo, including the familiar equine image of, well, a bucking bronco.
this is the first official word from ford about the bronco since the company announced way back in 2017 that the bronco was officially coming back. now we know for sure that the production suv will go on sale sometime next year as a 2020 model. it’s been the subject of much speculation, and our current intel suggests that it will be a rugged body-on-frame suv based on the next-generation ranger mid-size pickup. the jeep wrangler is a clear target, and as such the bronco will have removable doors, a rear-mounted spare tire, boxy styling, and a healthy dose of legitimate off-road capability. a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine is slated to be the base engine, and a v-6 and a hybrid powertrain should also be offered.
look for ford to release a steady trickle of teasers like this leading up to the new bronco’s debut next spring to capitalize on the hype that’s been building for years now. there’s no word on exactly when or where the suv swill debut, but at least we now know we only have to wait a few more months to see it for real.
