For full three decades, this legendary nameplate was one of the company’s most popular models and we are about to see its revival in a form of 2020 Ford Bronco. The company already works on a new model for some time and it looks like the development is in an advanced stage. Though the company keeps the most info as a secret, some details are already known, including the vehicle’s base design characteristics. The new 2020 Bronco will come with plenty of amazing design characteristics. We expect its arrival in the next year.
2020 Ford Bronco Design
Speaking of 2020 Ford Bronco specs, the thing we must say first is that pretty much everyone is amazed to finally see some real off-roader from this company. At the moment, Expedition is the only true SUV, while the rest of the lineup features modern unibody construction. The new 2020 Bronco will come based on the new Ford Ranger. The famous mid-size truck is coming back to the U.S. market and these two models will definitely have plenty of parts to share. Moreover, we will most likely see the same design language as well, characterized by Ford’s recognizable front end that can be found on all current models. Speaking in general, this will be a real mid-size SUV.
2020 Ford Bronco Interior
Besides attractive styling, it is expected to come with a pretty modern cabin. The 2020 Ford Bronco interior will be characterized by hi-quality materials and plenty of space. Eventually, we could see the third row of seating as an option, though it doesn’t seem so likely. Finally, expect the company’s latest suite of advanced safety and driver-assist systems.
2020 Ford Bronco Engines
Unfortunately, the new 2020 Ford Bronco won’t come in a traditional manner, relying on V8 power. The new model will rather feature efficient EcoBoost units, several of them to be more precise. Expect the same engine lineup as for the new Ranger. This would mean an efficient 2.3-liter turbo inline-four as the base engine. This unit is extremely efficient, so it’s no wonder it delivers 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. An optional 2.7-liter V6 unit features a max output of 325 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque. Both engines should come with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Thew 2020 Ford Bronco could also come in a diesel variant, featuring new 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder engine, which is good for about 210 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is a chance to see a hybrid version in the future. Most likely, it would be the same system that Ford develops for the new F-150 Hybrid. According to some reports, this hybrid system will be based on the same 2.7-liter V6 engine, but with a help of a couple of electric motors.
Could Ford Bronco Get a Hi-Performance Version?
Many reports suggest that the new SUV will also come in hi-performance version. It should be called 2020 Ford Bronco Raptor. It is still hard to predict which engine will power this version. Still, it could easily be the same 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 unit from F-150 Raptor. This unit delivers amazing 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. Besides new engine, this version will also get a bunch of mechanical upgrades, including new shocks, higher ground clearance, and much more. Finally, expect to see improved visual appearance, full of Baya-inspired details.
When Will 2020 Ford Bronco Arrive?
Although we are still waiting for the official confirmation, the pre-production version will probably have its premiere at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show next January. It should hit the market a few months later. When it comes to the 2020 Ford Bronco price, some reports suggest 30.000 dollars for the base model.
