Ford is bringing back its Bronco sport utility vehicle, and this time with a three-vehicle “Built Wild” herd of 4x4s that includes a classic 2-door Bronco and the first 4-door Bronco, which also is available in Bronco Sport guise. Production of the new Broncos will begin in early 2021 in Michigan, Ford said.
In addition to revealing the vehicles on July 13, Ford said it was accepting $100 refundable deposits on the new, sixth-generation Broncos. A base price of $29,995 was announced for the 2-door Bronco, and Ford said that price includes $1,495 for destination and delivery charges. Potential buyers can make their deposits through the Ford website.
The Broncos will be equipped with EcoBoost engines and will offer 7-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmissions, as well what Ford says is “best-in-class” 94.75:1 crawl ratio, ground clearance, suspension travel and water-fording capabilities.
Ford announced this morning that the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco would debut next spring. Rumors claim that the truck will launch as a 2020 model after all. To celebrate the announcement of the world debut next spring, Ford premiered a video that took a look back at several of the Broncos over the years.
To go along with that teaser video, Ford has put out a massive database of Bronco photos that take a look at how the vehicle changed over the years. The photos include the 1966 Ford Bronco Prototype and then skips ahead to the production version and picks up with the 1968 Ford Bronco.
After my previous post on the Ford Bronco turn out and the recent announcement of the new Bronco arriving in 2020, it was a real disappointment to hear that it will be based on the Focus platform. who really needs another cookie cutter small SUV?
