It is expected in mid-2024 but could happen earlier.
All Jeep Wrangler versions will have a rival Bronco version.
The Ford Bronco family is expanding.
Up until now, Jeep still had the Gladiator up its sleeve as it braces itself for the Ford Bronco’s impact on the Jeep Wrangler. Sadly for FCA, Automobile Magazine says that the coming of a 4-door Bronco pickup is official. Their sources say that it is scheduled for a mid-2024 launch for the 2025 model year but there are internal “forces” who want to move the date forward, possibly as early as the 2022 calendar year.
The Bronco pickup will lineup with the Bronco’s trims and option packages meaning everything from the Base to the Wildtrack will be offered. More than likely, a First Edition will be available as well. This also indicates that the Sasquatch package will transition as an option to the pickup.
Powertrains will also be identical although the 3.0-litre EcoBoost V6 won’t find its way into the pickup from the Bronco Raptor, which itself is expected to launch for the 2022 model year. Transmission selections will also follow suit, namely the 7-speed manual and 10-speed automatic.
Pricing should start around $30,000 while a top-trimmed limited-edition First Edition will surely reach $60,000 with little effort.
