Have you heard? The legendary Ford Bronco is back by popular demand. Slated to be released in 2020, the Bronco was one of the world's most popular 4x4 vehicles for over three decades. Anyone who can remember the time frame ranging from 60s up to the mid 90s can attest to the popularity and exceptional durability of the Ford Bronco. 

Ford's newest Bronco will feature the legendary durability and reliability that made this vehicle the must-have SUV. In addition, you can expect modern upgrades and access to the latest smart technology. Most importantly, the new Ford Bronco will sport a bold new exterior look while being anchored to its unparalleled rugged appeal. Let's take a quick trip down memory lane and make a few educated speculations about what we can expect from the new Ford Bronco. 

When Was the Bronco First Released

The Ford Bronco was initially released in 1965 as the 1966 Bronco. The original model immediately became synonymous with off-road capability and the adventurous lifestyle. During the 10-year reign of the first generation Bronco, the available options were must-haves like a power take-off, a CB radio, a post-hole digger, a winch, and an auxiliary gas tank. 

Due to the cult-like popularity of the first generation Bronco, it would continue production for more than three decades and span across five different generations. The Bronco would continue to evolve and grow from a 1966-style compact SUV to eventually share width and height specs with the best-selling Ford F-150.

What Will the New Bronco Look Like?

While information about the exterior of the Bronco is under tight lock and key, we know it will be a rugged, body-on-frame, no-compromise 4x4 SUV. The Bronco will be distinctly engineered to crush rocks and whip the toughest terrains into submission. 

The new Bronco should include features like solid rear and front axles as well as other features to make it the ultimate midsize 4x4 SUV. Raj Nair, Product Development Chief shared that it will share its frame with the new Ford Ranger pickup.

What Will Be Under the Hood of the New Bronco?

We're not exactly sure which engine will come standard on the Bronco. However, we can speculate it will feature one of Ford's EcoBoost engines - similar to the one featured in the Raptor. In either case, the new Ford Bronco will be built at the plant in Wayne, Michigan.
