2020 Ford Bronco: First Teaser Pic Revealed!
Let out a sigh of relief, Bronco fans. Our beloved off-road ‘ute isn’t going to be some gussied-up crossover after all!
We’ve been waiting what seems like forever to get some sort of clue as to what the 2020 Ford Bronco will look like. We’ve read all the speculation, examined everything Ford has said, and even came up with our own rendering. But now, the wait is over. Sorta. We’ve finally got our first look at the highly anticipated 2020 Ford Bronco, albeit hiding under a very dirty cover.
We may not have gotten all the details we wanted, but this disguised pic actually says a lot. For starters, the overall shape of the Bronco looks exactly like what we wanted to it be. The body shape is squared off and aggressive, with high, flared wheel arches and what appear to be big, off-road tires. There’s a spare tire hanging off the rear, a la the Jeep Wrangler. And the overall stance is aggressive, not something you’d see on your average SUV or crossover.
Even better? Ford officially refers to the new Bronco as an off-road model. “Ford helped start the off-road phenomenon and has majored in off-road capability for decades – from the Bronco to the Raptor,” said Jim Farley, Ford president, Global Markets. “Now, we’re ready to reclaim our rightful place as the off-road vehicle leader.” Ford also revealed that they plan to offer a hybrid version of the Bronco, though no further details were given.
Plus, the 2020 Ford Bronco won’t be the only off-road SUV in Ford’s lineup. They’re also working on “a yet-to-be-named off-road small utility” seen in the teaser image above. It’s all part of Ford’s bigger plan to replace 75% of its portfolio by 2020, adding four new trucks and SUVs in total. For fans of the brand, this is all music to the ears. And we can all let out a big sigh of relief, because the Bronco truly is back!
