What we know as of now
During a recent dealer meeting, the Blue Oval gave the sellers more details about the revived Ford Bronco, including plans to offer two- and four-door versions. The SUV reportedly looked retro by taking elements from the original like a rectangular grille, round headlights, and a stamped Bronco emblem on the front, according to people who saw the vehicle speaking with Automotive News.
Ford will position the new Bronco as a Jeep Wrangler rival. It’ll feature rugged elements like a removable hard top. Owners will also be able to take off the doors, and there will be room to store them in the rear cargo area, according to Automotive News. The Bronco reportedly rides on a body-on-frame chassis with solid axles at both ends. Power allegedly comes from one of Ford’s EcoBoost turbocharged engines with an output of roughly 325 horsepower (242 kilowatts). While most buyers would likely opt for an automatic gearbox, the Blue Oval also purportedly intends to offer a seven-speed manual for the SUV.
How much will the new Ford Bronco cost?
With current conversion rates, the Australian-market Ford Everest would cost around $40,000 in the U.S. Given that production will be moved to Michigan, and relative competitors like the Wrangler and 4Runner average closer to $35,000, we can guesstimate that the Bronco will be about the same – dropping its starting price to the low- to mid-30s.
