That picture is of the current generation Everest. Not the Bronco.

The article speculates that the new Bronco *MIGHT* resemble the next generation Everest, but that is not confirmed. All that was confirmed in that article is that the Bronco name is in fact coming back, and that it will share a platform with the new Ranger, which is also coming back.

The Ford Bronco Wonít Just Be A Lame Ford Everest After All





Contrary to what was said by an alleged Ford employee in an unsanctioned and unconfirmed Reddit AMA earlier this week, Ford executive vice president and CTO Raj Nair confirmed to Autoline that the new Ford Bronco will be a completely different vehicle from the global market body-on-frame Everest SUV. Get excited.

Nair confirmed to Autoline that the Bronco and Ranger would be sharing platforms, which makes sense, given this week’s dual announcement:

This new Bronco will be based off the Ranger platform and so it’s going to be a similarly sized vehicle to what you see in the Ranger. Now, for our American customers who have never seen that global Ranger, it’s a bit bigger than the Ranger we used to have here in the U.S., so I would say it’s kind of in-between in what you saw with that really big Bronco [the 1992-1996 model], and then the smaller Bronco [1966-1977].
But it won’t be a shared platform with the Everest—it will be its own new, unique vehicle:









No, it’s a separate vehicle [from the Everest]. It will be an incremental vehicle from the Everest. The Everest kind of serves a lot of off-road capability; maybe the space of the Explorer serves here in the U.S., but with a body-on-frame construction with a lot more off-road capability for the rest of the world. This Bronco is completely unique from that Everest. It is body-on-frame and so again, focusing on that off-road capability.
And our friends at The Truth About Cars also debunked the Redditor’s claims, and had some reported (but again, unconfirmed) details on how the Bronco’s roof could work.
The Everest is an existing body-on-frame SUV built for global markets, giving credence to what the Reddit AMA said. However, Bronco aficionados everywhere became worried that the new “Bronco” would look like the Everest, which despite being a real SUV, looks about as exciting as toast with butter on it.



This is good news, then. Expectations are clearly high. Look at how much attention that render from Bronco6g.com gets every time we post it. People want a Bronco, and they want it to look like a Bronco, ideally with an open roof, two doors and some badass offroading pretenses. Don’t screw this up, Ford.

Is this the 2020 Ford Bronco?





PrevNext







This may be our first glimpse of the new Bronco.
Our spy photographers have sent us the first images of what appears to be the basis for Ford's next-generation Bronco SUV.



Though bodied as a current-generation Everest, the bones for the next Bronco are believed to be hiding beneath this mule's bodywork. The Bronco is clearly still early in its development phase, but this mule was spotted testing alongside the Ranger pickup truck that it will share a chassis with.
Both the body-on-frame Bronco and Ranger will be built at Ford's Michigan Assembly Plant. The Ranger will enter production in 2018 while we'll have to wait until 2020 for the Bronco.
Not much is know about either model at this point, but it's likely that the duo will be powered by a range of turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines. Hardcore off-road models are expected for both nameplates.


Ford could preview the Bronco with a concept sometime next year, but it'll probably be 2019 before we lay eyes on the production version of the iconic SUV.

Read, guys. They're speculating that this is a mule; a Bronco in Everest skin.

This is not what it will look like.

RENDERED SPECULATION: IF The All-new Ford Bronco Looks Like THIS, Would You Be On Line To Buy One?









One of the most anticipated returns of a vintage nameplate rests on the resurrection of the Ford Bronco.


The last production Bronco lasted until the mid 1990s and a part of me wonders of Ford killed it off due to the association with the O.J. Simpson chase.

Perhaps it was considered a bad brand association?

Anyway, the vehicle is on its way back for 2020. As of now there has been zero indication of how the vehicle will look. There's been a render or two floating around but these are merely artist interpretations.

In other words: Based on pure speculation. Nothing more, nothing less.

So, why not add another one into the mix?

The latest comes from Kleber Silva who put together both two-door and four-door variants. Given the Explorer runs the four-door game at F, I'd hope they keep the Bronco a two-door vehicle.

Donít burn the Ford Bronco name on a warmed-over Ford Escape

2020 Ford Bronco should stay tough, like the ageless Toyota 4Runner.

Reserve the Bronco for something that fits. Make it off-road capable. Make it look the part. Make it happen, Ford.
DETROIT ó The 2020 Ford Bronco should be a lot like the 2017 Toyota 4Runner ó that's what people who are excited about the Bronco want. They don't want a warmed-over Escape or another commodity crossover. It should be special.

That's what kept running through my head last weekend as I motored around in the 4Runner. It's blocky. It's old. The brakes are touchy and the suspension is bouncy. It's tuned for rocks and dirt. You can see really well out of it. A passenger took one glance at it and observed the 4Runner looks like "a 1990s SUV." Exactly.

I'm not saying drop a pushrod V8 in the new Bronco, but why even bother pulling the name out of mothballs if it's not going to live up to that rough-and-tough SUV heritage? Don't burn the Bronco name on anything less than a future icon.

Ford's luxury brand, Lincoln, played it right, using the Continental on a legitimate range-topping sedan that's elegant and sophisticated. The Continental looks like, well, a Continental, but it's contemporary. General Motors product boss Mark Reuss once told me that being "syrupy retro" is not the right call for his future products, and he's dead on. I love tailfins and big headlights as much as the next guy, but they're like glass Coke bottles. Not very practical in today's stuff-it-in-a-cupholder society.

There's still an appetite for these kinds of vehicles. The 4Runner actually outsold the Sienna minivan by about 7,500 units through September. You could argue the Sienna is an old vehicle, last redesigned for 2011, but the 4Runner hasn't had a major update since '10.

So what should Ford do? It's playing the Bronco, and its platform-mate the Ranger, very close to the vest. Other than confirming last January that the vehicles would be built in Michigan, the Blue Oval has been pretty quiet on this front, as would be expected.

I'd suggest creating the feel you get from driving something like the 4Runner. Use some of the Bronco's styling cues from its 40-year run, make it off-road capable, and twist a few wrenches to make it fuel efficient. Grab whatever the F-150's medium-range engine is in 2020 and use that. Seats for five with a good-size cargo hold. People will like that. The renderings from the Bronco6G forum are cool and internet gold. But the new one doesn't have to go that far. Just far enough so that buyers are psyched about buying a Bronco, yet still feel like they're driving a modern vehicle. The 4Runner feels dated in every respect. The idea of that vehicle in its best modern form is what Ford should aspire to create for the Bronco.

Mitsubishi is taking a different tack with the Evo, and I'd caution Ford to proceed cautiously if it were to pursue this option. The e-Evolution, a concept that debuted last week at the Tokyo Motor Show, is a sleek crossover that's nothing like the raw sport sedan we've come to love and embrace in spite of its flaws. Instead, the e-Evolution previews an electric ute with artificial intelligence capabilities. Mitsubishi put its most marketable name on a forward-looking prototype in an all-in bet that it can win in that niche.

It might be a good play for them. Ford doesn't need to do that. When it rolls out an electric, autonomous crossover that can make toast, a techy or futuristic name will suffice. Then reserve the Bronco name for something that fits. Make it off-road capable. Make it look the part. Make it happen, Ford.
