The 2020 Ford Bronco is almost ready to hit the roads once again. The iconic Ford’s SUV is making a huge return and it will be quite astonishing. Bronco will arrive as a mid-size SUV and it will keep some of its robustness from the past. The exterior will look modern and Bronco will share plenty of styling cues with the Ford Ranger. Additionally, those two will share the same underpinnings from now on. Even the interior will be similar, but there is not much that we know about the cabin design at the moment.
Under the hood, the 2020 Ford Bronco is hiding an EcoBoost V6 engine that provides more than enough power. Perhaps the strongest point of this SUV is its off-roading abilities. Everything about Bronco will have the same purpose and it is tackling the toughest possible terrains. Moreover, Ford Bronco will try to tackle its biggest competitor, Jeep Wrangler. Forget about the hybrid model in the near future, but be careful about the Bronco Raptor that is more likely to happen.
2020 Ford Bronco And Ranger To Share The Same Underpinning
The exterior of the upcoming 2020 Ford Bronco will mix some of the design and styling cues from the Everest and Ranger models. Moreover, Bronco and Ranger will share the same underpinnings. Bronco is touted to arrive as a two-door and a four-door model. That means we can expect two wheelbase lengths as well. The appearance will remain boxy and robust, the same as a model from the past century. Of course, modernization will happen and this mid-size SUV will look appealing and stylish. The front end will sport a grille with a single horizontal bar.
The round headlights are looking brilliant and generally, the front part is both aggressive and upscale. To the sides, we like the Bronco’s single character line that runs across the whole vehicle’s length. Bulgy fenders are visible and the tires will be large. If something is providing the modern appeal, it is definitely the wheels. The rear end adds a bold bumper and vertical taillights. If we use the Jeep Wrangler as an example, we can expect the four-door variant to be more popular than the two-door models.
2020 Ford Bronco Interior Design
The interior of the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco will be heavily based on the upcoming Ford Ranger pickup truck. Neither of these two models is present at the moment, so we can’t exactly say how the interior design will look like. But on the other hand, if we take the current global Ranger as an example, we might a clearer interior picture.
Some things are pretty clear and certain. For the start, Bronco will be a five-passenger mid-size SUV. A center-mounted shifter with the rotary dial is another certain thing that you can expect. The idea is to deliver a modern cabin with astonishing features.
Amenities And Safety Features
That means amenities such as keyless entry or push-button start will be standard. Moreover, expect the FordPass service, Bluetooth, navigation and Wi-Fi hotspot all as standard. Leather upholstery, additional chrome, and wood trims and some safety systems will be all optional. Of course, some of the safety aids must be standard, we bet on lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and pre-collision assist. There will be two larger displays, a single touchscreen unit, and a driver information display. We still don’t know anything about the trim levels.
2020 Ford Bronco Powertrain
The arriving 2020 Ford Bronco will offer at least two engines. It is not official yet, but the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 is the most probable outcome. This drivetrain is powering the current F-150 pickup truck. It can generate up to 325 horses and 375 lb-ft of torque. This engine offers a 10-speed automatic gearbox. On the other hand, many customers are hoping for the 6-speed manual transmission. We don’t find this thing likely to happen, maybe some special version in the future. With those figures, Bronco overperforms its biggest rival, Jeep Wrangler.
Of course, the optional unit is a reality so 2020 Ford Bronco could arrive with even more power. A 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 is a speculated output that is delivering 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. A four-wheel-drive setup will be optional. Moreover, with the two-speed transfer case, the drivers can switch between the 4WD low and 4WD high-range. That also means the electronic locking differential will make the production as well. On top of that, we expect additional off-road equipment and different driving modes.
2020 Ford Bronco Price and Release Date
Until this moment, Ford is still remaining silent about the Bronco’s price. However, the 2020 Ford Bronco will slot in the same range as its rival Jeep Wrangler. With that in mind, a price between the $35,000 and $40,000 is the most probable outcome.
Of course, this price stands for the base model. We still don’t know how many trim levels will be in the offer. Furthermore, a 2020 Ford Bronco Raptor could happen as well, so you can expect more premium and luxurious Broncos. This mid-size SUV will make its huge return in the first quarter of 2020.
