Long before production ended in 1996, the Ford Bronco dominated the market for SUVs, before the SUV segment was even invented. The first generation of the Bronco was introduced to the world in 1966, with its iconic wagon/pick-up hybrid design and became the first compact SUV in Ford’s lineup. The second and third generation realized the Bronco’s potential as a full-sized SUV with an added 4×4 drive, V8 engine, and design influences from the F-100 truck that came before it. Towards the fourth and fifth generation of the Bronco, the vehicle underwent redesigns along with the F-150 as part of its 25th anniversary. But alas, the Bronco began phasing out of production, eventually being replaced by the Ford Expedition around the early 1990s.
Rumours have circulated around the 2020 Bronco for quite some time, with speculation around its brand-new styling, updated technology, and state-of-the-art engine specifications grabbing the attention of die-hard aficionados. The most firm news we have for the new 2020 Bronco is returning to production with Ford’s Michigan manufacturing plant to take the helm of its construction. Meanwhile, sources speculate that the 2020 Bronco will pay homage to the original with its removable roof panels and 4×4 drive utility. In addition, an EcoBoost engine will most likely replace or come available with the new Bronco, as opposed to its original V8 engine — updating it to fit Ford’s current engine lineup for its vehicles.
