Ford has been doing great work recently, refreshing its model lines. 2020 will be no exception! The all-new 2020 Ford Bronco is pointed in Jeep's direction to take on the Wrangler and Gladiator. It's been 24 years since we've seen a new Bronco from Ford!

When Ford announced in 2017 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan that it was going to reintroduce the Ford Bronco, scant details were given. Even the graphic used on stage at the auto show was merely a yellow Ford oval containing the Bronco logo. Ford stated at the time that the Bronco would reappear in 2020. And though Ford has been very tight-lipped regarding any new Bronco details, Franklin's Spring Creek Ford of Colquitt, Georgia has put together a composite from a variety of sources to bring the all-new 2020 Bronco into focus.

The Look of the New 2020 Ford Bronco

Pictures recently released on the web show a retro look with round headlamps, an angular front end, and a rectangular grille with the Bronco moniker across it, very reminiscent of Broncos of the late 1960's and early 1970's. The rest of the 2020 Bronco body had design cues for 2020 for a sleek blend of classic and contemporary styling.  

The Possible Transmission for the 2020 Ford Bronco

Jalnopik sources claim that a new 7-speed manual transmission for the 2020 Bronco is also rumored to have been designed by Germany-based Getrag, the largest transmission manufacturer in the world. Unofficially called the MT-88, this new 7-speed is to be mated with the Ford 2.7L V6 EcoBoost engine.  

2020 Ford Bronco May have a Hybrid Engine Option

It looks as if a hybrid engine is in the Bronco's future. While Ford has not divulged any information regarding displacement or number of cylinders, Road and Track feels the hybrid will be based on a 3.3L V6 and electric motor paired with a 10-speed transmission.  

A Two Door Version of 2020 Ford Bronco in the Future?

Regarding the exterior, word from Road and Track magazine is that not only will there be a four door version to directly compete with Jeep Wrangler, but also a two door version to, again, go head to head with the smaller, two door Jeep Wrangler. At a recent Ford auto dealer event in Palm Springs, Automotive News got wind that dealers were shown a preliminary mock-up of a two door Bronco, further corroborating the Road and Track sleuthing.  

Patented Accessories Make the 2020 Ford Bronco Highly Customizable

Automotive News also weighs in with a report that "The Bronco is designed to be customizable, with a removable hardtop and removable doors that can be stored in the vehicle's cargo area." Road and Track added credence to this story, stating that in April, Ford made patent submissions for "a roll-out mesh roof or soft top to substitute for a hard top once removed," even further proof that Ford is directly competing with the Jeep Wrangler lineup. Continuing with intelligence on the 2020 Bronco soft top, Road and Track said additional drawings for the US Patent Office showed that the fabric top could be pulled back and used as a temporary canopy or tent.   And word hot off the presses this week is that the Bronco will get a pickup bed to take on the Jeep Gladiator, again putting Jeep squarely within Ford's crosshairs. But that won't happen until 2024.
