It seems like the rumors are true. One of the most iconic Ford`s sport utility vehicles is back in the game. It is the brand new 2020 Ford Bronco. The revival of Bronco will definitively shake the whole SUV class. The sixth generation of Ford Bronco is expected to be inspired by the new Ranger pickup. As well, it should receive several types of engines which also power the F-150 model. It will most likely keep its traditional styling and unique design. Of course, we can expect some modifications both inside and outside.
The comeback of eagerly expected Ford Bronco will surely draw attention worldwide, and we believe that it is going to be very successful. Its key competitors will be Jeep Wrangler and Chevrolet Blazer.
The new 2020 Ford Bronco is expected to be made at Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne.
Powertrain and performance
Under the hood of the 2020 Ford Bronco will be probably placed two types of engines. The first is a 2.7-liter V-6 EcoBoost engine with direct injection. This one will be able to produce 325 horses and the torque of 387 pound-feet. It will be mated to a ten-speed automatic gearbox. Its top speed is expected to be 120 mph. As for the acceleration, it should be able to hit 60 mph in 7.5 seconds. Moreover, it will be available with all-wheel drive system.
The second option is supposed to be a 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost unit. This engine will be more powerful. It will be able to make 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. As for the transmission, it will be mated to the same 10-speed automatic. However, we are hoping to see it with a six-speed manual gearbox too.
Exterior and interior design of 2020 Ford Bronco
First of all, the new 2020 Ford Bronco will no longer be a full-sized SUV but mid-sized off-roader. It will share the same platform as Ranger. It will be made of high-strength steel and will show an excellent off road capabilities too. The new Ford will be able to conquer any type of terrain. Furthermore, this time, it is expected to be offered as a four-door SUV only.
When it comes to exterior, the new Bronco will keep its boxy look. It will borrow similar design from the Ranger model. The front fascia will feature revised grille with horizontal bar and round headlamps. The bumper will be refreshed as well. Moreover, it will get modified fenders and new wheels too.
As for the interior, we still don`t have exact information. However, some sources say that it will look similar to the cabin of the Ranger model. We can expect new materials and improved interior styling. The cabin will be able to accommodate five passengers. The rear seats will be split-folded. Furthermore, as for the technology, push-button starting and keyless entry are now supposed to be standard.
