We know the Ford Bronco will be a competitor to the Jeep Wrangler. We now know it will have at least one similar configuration to the Wrangler.
Ford dealers got their first look at the new 2020 Ford Bronco this weekend, and reports are starting to trickle in. Like the Jeep Wrangler, the all-new Bronco will be available with two doors and a removable roof.
Owners will be able to store the roof in the trunk. Chatty dealers also revealed that the mirrors will be mounted on the A-pillars. That means that you can remove the doors and keep your mirrors.
This version of the new-generation Bronco will be joined by a four-door model as well. Because no model is ever safe from leaks, we also learned that the 2020 Ford Bronco will have a retro design complete with round headlights and a massive Bronco emblem on the grille.
The new Ford Bronco is expected towards the end of 2020, nearly 25 years after the original Bronco left the market in 1996.
The Ford Bronco will be joined by a smaller Bronco which we have very little details about except that it is referred to as the “Baby Bronco“. A unibody new Ford pickup could join both new SUVs in 2021, completing an off-road lineup of Ford vehicles.
All of this information comes from dealers who spoke with Automotive News following the 2020 Ford Bronco showing. No pictures are expected from the event as participants had to leave their phones at the door – likely to prevent someone from posting on Instagram like they did when the Shelby GT500 was leaked.
One participant did say the Bronco had exceed expectations and was “twice as cool as I thought it would be”. Another called the 2020 Bronco a “game changer”.
We would not be surprised if Ford unveiled the new Bronco at the next Detroit Auto Show in 2020. It will mark the first time the show is held in June, and Ford will want to make a splash.
