Sharing a platform with the recently released Ranger, the Ford Bronco will arrive in 2020 offering buyers a midsize 4x4 utility vehicle with either two or four doors that’s not a Jeep Wrangler. Potential future Bronco variants include an off-road focused model and a Bronco Raptor.
Power is likely to come from a 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 (or a 2.3-liter turbo-four used by the Ranger) which recent reports suggest buyers will have the chance to spec with a new seven-speed manual transmission tentatively dubbed the MT-88 and that could feature in the next-gen Mustang. A ten-speed automatic should come as standard.
The Bronco is said to mirror the styling of the Everest, a Ranger-based SUV sold overseas, or take styling cues from the Brazilian Troller, but we’ll know for sure when it gets unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show in January. Failing that, expect a reveal in New York in April. Prices for the 2020 Bronco should start from around $30,000 to keep it competitive with the Wrangler Unlimited.
