No real items were given for the upcoming Bronco. The vehicle’s blueprint, definitions, and aspects were never exposed, and all that was shown on theatre was a Bronco graphic–no vehicle was shown. Ford’s Joe Hinrichs did reveal that the upcoming 2020 Bronco would be built in the U.S., at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant.
Hinrichs described the upcoming Bronco as “a no-compromise midsize 4×4 utility for the thrill-seekers who are interested freedom and off-road functionality, with the space and versatility of an SUV. It’s capable of subjugating everything from your daily commute to gravel roads and boulders,” Hinrichs added, with images of rocky, technological off-road courses blinking behind him.
Notably, the 2019 Ford Ranger was also announced today, likewise slated to be set up at the Michigan Assembly Plant. Does this mean that the new Bronco will be based on the midsize Ranger? Hinrichs described the new Bronco as a midsize, off-road-capable 4×4, hinting that it could be a Ranger-based SUV. We will have to wait to see for sure.
The Ranger and Bronco have long been rumored restored to Ford’s lineup. A United Auto Workers congresswoman first revealed that Ford’s union contract included Bronco and Ranger means back in October of 2016. But this is the first time Ford has officially and amply confirmed that these vehicles will return, announcing where the vehicles would be produced and when they would introduction. Today, Ford confirmed that the Bronco and Ranger will be two of five working new utility vehicles set to arrive by 2020.
