A celebration is in order, Kirkland. Prepare your streamers and confetti, and raise a glass to the 2020 Bronco. In January Ford will reveal the full list of spec details for this crossover, allowing drivers to (finally) learn about its all-terrain capabilities; and excitement is already building among the automotive world.
For those who simply can’t wait until the start of the new year, however, we have some tantalizing information to share: Ford has confirmed that the Bronco will feature the same chassis structure as the 2019 Ranger… and this should translate into potent performance.
As Top Speed explains, the 2020 Bronco will boast the architecture of the Ranger. Its uni-body design will feature a blend of steel and aluminum to ensure off-road strength, and it will rest on a four-wheel system that will promote superior traction (with power distributed evenly between the all-season tires, allowing the platform to grip the pavement with every rev). Most impressive, however, is the possibility of a shared drivetrain.
Top Speed notes that Ford might fuse the Bronco with a 2.3L four-cylinder engine - pairing turbocharged performance with 10-gear automatic precision. The result would be a class-leading crossover, with 270 HP and 310 lb.-ft of torque generated. These specs have not yet been confirmed, but critics do anticipate that they’ll prove valid come January.
Are you excited, Kirkland?
