A new Ford Bronco is getting closer to its official premiere. Thus, the automaker fulfills consumer wishes and revives the iconic SUV.
About a year ago, Ford teased the automotive public with the first official image of the Bronco’s new iteration. The automaker informed as much as needed for the intrigue: under the cover we could clearly determine the new SUV proportions.
Short overhangs, body geometry typical for an all-terrain vehicle and the dirt on the veil itself suggests that the new Bronco should be able to cope with off-road without any problems.
Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s President of the Americas, confirmed that the new Bronco would be an uncompromising mid-sized 4×4 utility for thrill seekers who want to go far beyond the city.
On the other hand, Ford will not be able to ignore both the design and latest requirements for safety and comfort. Otherwise, people won’t buy the model.
A SUV on the modern market should look good in city streets, behave itself well in off-road conditions, be safe and comfortable at the same time. Look at the new lineup of Jeep.
It is still unclear which engines the 2021 Ford Bronco will have. The motor range is rumored to include not only a 2.7-liter 325-hp V6 EcoBoost, but a hybrid powertrain as well. A four-wheel drive will probably be standard.
The new SUV will be produced at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, where for 30 years, from 1966 to 1996, the previous Bronco was assembled, and today the Ranger pickup is manufactured.
Expect the 2021 Ford Bronco launch in early 2020. It may be unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, but the company will most likely make a separate presentation for one of its iconic models. Ford positions it as global for worldwide sales.
