2019 Ford Bronco Appearance Is Still a Secret
The Ford Bronco is perhaps a legend of the automotive world, first introduced in 1966 as a Multi-Purpose Vehicle (essentially, the term for an SUV back then). While many Americans have grown up with the Bronco, it only really gained worldwide fame thanks to a car chase that was sent live around the world.
Virtually nothing has been confirmed about the new Bronco, for a time, we weren’t even sure that Ford were going to be bringing it back, but Ford recently announced plans to have 4 new SUV models in their global line up by 2020 – the Bronco just has to be there.
2019 Ford Bronco Release date
If Ford do indeed bring it back, we’d expect to see the 2019 Ford Bronco in the showrooms by late 2018, with a world debut at one of the larger auto shows earlier in the year. Now it is not so much news about Ford Bronco 2019.
2019 Ford Bronco Price
Speculation is rife, we’ve had no indication from Ford regarding prices for the 2019 models, but looking at the competition and where we think the Bronco will sit, we think that the Bronco will have a starting price in the region of $30,000.
2019 Ford Bronco Redesign and Changes
With no official information or pictures regarding the Bronco, industry insiders have taken it upon themselves to create what they would like to see, our favorite from these is the rendering of the Bronco featuring the classic 1st generation round headlamps and inset square grille – it looks cool, classic, aggressive, stylish … it captures the whole package in picture.
There was a few 2019 Ford Bronco concept cars, but it seems that none of it would be a prototype of production version SUV.
2019 Ford Bronco Interior
There is no single clue regarding the future interior of the New 2019 Ford Bronco, it is likely to be 4-door, so there could be a plenty of room to accommodate 5 passengers. It depends on how Ford will position the SUV, it could have a bit retro-styled interior like Mustang, or more traditional, like any another Ford car.
2019 Ford Bronco Specs
We think that Ford have at least three different powertrain options lined up for the Bronco; 2.7 liter EcoBoost with 325 BHP and 375 lb/ft, 3.5 liter EcoBoost with 375 BHP and 470 lb/ft (for 2019 Ford Bronco SVT, presumably) and maybe even a diesel – borrowed from Range Rover – 3.0 liter V6 with 254 BHP and 440 lb/ft of torque. The diesel is fuel efficient – 32 MPG combined when fitted in the Rangie. All motors will run through a 10-speed auto transmission.
Given the current taste for hybrid, and Ford’s commitment to hybrid technology, we’d put money on them introducing a hybrid model, but perhaps later in the production cycle.
Expect to see a lightweight, high strength steel construction and body, possibly built on the platform shared by the Ford Ranger – very unlikely that the Bronco will have a unique platform.
With suspension tuned for a smooth ride and off-road ability, the Bronco could be the best of both worlds – a decent road going SUV with some off roading capability.
We can’t wait to see what Ford will offer.
