After ending production in 1996, the legendary Ford Bronco is making a comeback. Ford announced the Bronco’s eventual return at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit back in 2017, and we’ve been waiting patiently ever since. As for when it’ll make its debut, we’re not 100-percent sure. Ford said it’ll arrive by 2020 , though, so there’s a very good chance we’ll see it debut at some point this year.
But, there is quite a lot we do know about the Bronco, based on credible rumors and comments from various Ford higher-ups since the announcement of the 4×4’s return. We’ve compiled all that info for you here.
This story will be continually updated as new information is learned. The most recent update was published on 7/15/19.
It Might Spawn a Pickup Truck
Ford already has a mid-size pickup on the market, the Ranger, but it might give the Bronco a bed, too. Automobile magazine reports that this truck will arrive in 2024 as a competitor to the Jeep Gladiator, a pickup based on the Bronco’s closest rival, the Wrangler. Ford has made its intent to compete with Jeep quite clear, so it’s easy to understand why the Blue Oval would want a Bronco pickup, even if it already has the Ranger in production.
This Raptor-Based Test Mule Could Be a Full-Size Bronco
Spy photographers managed to capture this strange truck testing recently in Michigan, and we think it’s a test mule for the new Bronco. Why? Well, it’s too wide to be a Ranger, and Ford doesn’t make a single cab F-150 Raptor. Plus, judging by our rough estimates, the dimensions line up.
