It’s now news Ford is working on a pickup version of the Bronco. It should go on sale next year at the earliest, but most likely in mid-2024.
The Jeep Wrangler, Ford Bronco’s direct rival, has its pickup offspring – the Jeep Gladiator. Ford will probably follow the same formula as the Gladiator: the Bronco pickup will use the Bronco SUV’s overall styling, interior elements, powertrains, the same equipment packages (including Sasquatch), and trim levels.
By the way, a Jeep Gladiator was recently spotted entering Ford’s facility near a metro Detroit. It may mean Blue Oval wants to benchmark the Gladiator pickup.
To create a Bronco truck, Ford engineers have to integrate the body structure elements of the SUV into the extremities of the cab. A pickup bed will replace the SUV’s cargo area.
