If it means the Bronco will get the 3.0L V6 Ecoboost and related hybrid system the Aviator and Explorer are getting it would be good news.

It could also mean the 2.0L they put in the Edge and Everest.

I don't think that hybrid technology is a high priority for serious off-roaders...

It will certainly help with CAFE averages, but I know the desirability of the 2.0 turbo in the Jeep Wrangler is very low compared to the normally aspirated V6. How does a hybrid with all of its extra electronics, motors, and batteries do when submerged in 4 feet of water? The extra weight is definitely not an advantage when crawling over boulders, although the low-speed torque of electric motors might be helpful.

I'll take a wait-and-see attitude toward a hybrid Bronco...

I think the prices on the 3rd gen will go up significantly if they **** this release up. I'd love some electric off road but hybrids bring complexity and that's the enemy to offroad fun.

Every time I think there might be good news there is a crazy article that claims what makes a Bronco a Bronco is an exterior mounted spare tire and "cool graphics packages"... Maybe no one told them the Toyors RAV4 also has an exterior mounted spare tire. Never once did I say to myself..."boy, that's Bronco like!" The term "removable roof panels" keeps popping up as well and I can't help but think Ford is trying to build interest in this pathetic excuse for a true removable top....

The good news is I really think the GT-500 will be a fantastic car!

🤷🏿*♀️ I wonít consider a Bronco with out a spare tire mount on the back. Old or new. Deal breaker for me.

We must be coming up on only being a mere 1-18 months away from having some true info from Ford so letís just wait and see!

Most indications put production in JAN 2021, with perhaps some ordering possible Q4 2020. So yeah, right about 18 months away now at most.

The 'big reveal' might happen 3-6 months before that, perhaps the new summer Detroit auto show. Supposedly this will happen a few months after the new baby-bronco/Maverick/Scout has been launched.
