It’s official! Last week Ford confirmed the All-New 2020 Ford Bronco will be hitting dealerships in spring 2020. The team here at Listowel Ford CANNOT wait! Of course, we’ve been waiting for years since Ford first announced it at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. But that’s okay because we just know it will be worth the long wait!
What We Know
Ford hasn’t told us much about the Bronco. The only clues Ford provides on its website are the stellar new logo, some nostalgia-inducing ’60s Bronco pics, and a pic of some wicked desert terrain which we’ve no doubt the long-awaited off-road SUV will have no trouble tackling!
Styling and Capabilities
Despite Ford doing what it can to build suspense, quite a bit of information is flowing through the interwebs about the All-New Bronco. As far as we know, the Ford Bronco revival will boast a boxy shape with retro styling similar to the beloved Broncos of the past. Purported to be available in two and four-door configurations with removable doors and roof, with available trail-ready equipment, the Bronco is set to rival some of the top off-road SUVs currently on the market.
Powertrain-wise, retailer Canadian Tire unintentionally revealed the Bronco’s powertrain configuration. This was discovered by offroad.com on Canadian Tire’s online parts lookup tool – oopsy! Assuming the configurator listed the correct specs, it’s safe to assume the Bronco will be available with a DOHC 2.3L inline-four – just like the Ford Ranger which the Bronco will share its platform with. We are also excited to find out that the Ford Bronco Hybrid was allegedly confirmed by the folks over at Ford as part of the company’s electrification targets.
Aside from sharing the Ford Ranger platform, chances are the Bronco will share other characteristics with the Ranger. While a 10-speed automatic transmission is almost a given, there is some speculation of a 7-speed manual transmission (likely paired with Ford’s 2.7L Ecoboost V 6 Engine). This would, of course, allow for more direct competition with that other off-road SUV (yes, we are talking about the Jeep Wrangler!).
