Though everything is still a speculation, the comeback of 2020 Ford Bronco is more probable with every new day. The big return will spark the interest for sure and the competition in the SUV segment will become stronger than ever before.
The upcoming 2020 Ford Bronco will be based on Ranger pickup with the same body-on-frame design. Styling, however, is unique. The world of Bronco’s fans, including websites and forums, is buzzing, and everyone is hoping that the rumors will become true with great anticipation.
2020 Ford Bronco Body and Design
The exterior will feature plenty of modern amenities and it is yet unknown if the 2020 Ford Bronco will be scaled down to the mid-size SUV. Up front, the grille features a horizontal bar with headlights on both ends. The fenders wear classic Bronco character line and the bumpers are similar to those on F-150 model.
Just like in the first generation of Bronco, a single line will run through the whole length of this SUV. The fenders are modern, with added bulges in order to cover large tires. It is hard to imagine Bronco like a two-door SUV, because, through the history, Ford almost never offered this configuration. A four-door version is most likely, but then again, Ford might copy the Wrangler setup with two wheelbase lengths and both two and four-door versions.
2020 Ford Bronco Interior Rumors
Having in mind the speculations that new 2020 Ford Bronco will be based on Ranger model, the interior should come with the clear resemblance. The shifter will probably be center-mounted with rotary dial for all-wheel drive. The same stands for huge infotainment and information screens.
Push-button start and keyless access should come as a standard. The rear seat accommodations will hugely depend on whether the Bronco hit the markets as a two or four-door SUV. Whatever happens, expect five passengers vehicle with the rear seat likely to be split in 60/40 form. Some sources claim that a drop-down tailgate will come as standard, just like a fold-up hatch at the back.
2020 Ford Bronco Engine Expectations
There is a huge possibility for Bronco to borrow engines from F-150 model. It means that the 2020 Ford Bronco will feature a 2.7 EcoBoost V6 with 325 HP and 375 pound-feet of torque. That is more than the present Wrangler JK who possess a 3.6-liter V8 with 285 HP. A 3.5-liter EcoBoost powertrain is likely to come as an option.
This engine should feature on higher trim models that offer better performances. That makes a lot of sense since this unit produces 370 HP. Both engines will most likely come with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The front-wheel-drive should come as a standard while all-wheel drive will come as an option for the additional money.
Speaking of suspension, Bronco should come with an independent suspension system. If the system is borrowed from Ranger as some speculations claims, this will give the approaching 2020 Ford Bronco some amazing off-road capabilities. In order to protect powertrain components, new skid plates will be added, just like the plates on F-150 Raptor.
2020 Ford Bronco Price and Release Date
While everything is still a speculation, comparing prices of Bronco’s competitors, we can conclude that the price of all-new 2020 Ford Bronco will range between $30,000 and $40,000. Bronco will hit the markets after the Ranger pickup, which means not before the end 2019.
