First confirmed by a union official in October followed by Ford at the Detroit show, the Bronco will rise again in 2020.
Its development has already started in Australia. The Ford Bronco is called to become a global model that will offer left-handed or right-handed versions. In addition to the plant in Wayne, Michigan, the Bronco will be produced in Thailand.
The choice to offer the Bronco throughout the world has an impact on its architecture. It will be a 4 × 4 in the traditional sense since it will adopt a chassis to scale and will share its foundations with the next Ford Ranger that already exists in version 5 doors, the Everest.
The engine supply of the future Bronco will be articulated around two families. Destined for the American market, the first range will probably be powered by the 2.3-liter Ecoboost 4-cylinder and the new 3.3-liter V6 that has just been announced in the F-150. The other range intended for the rest of the world will renew the engines already for sale, a 4-cylinder 2.5 liters of 143 hp, a 4 cylinders 2,2 TDCi 160 of 160 hp and a 5 cylinders TDCi of 200 hp. The latter could also be marketed in the US market, as it is already offered in Transit under the name Power Stroke.
Scheduled for the 2020 Ford Bronco, will be part of a product offensive that will launch 5 global utility models of 4 × 4.
