Ford T6 Platform
T6 is the name of a Ford Motor architecture designed to underpin real-wheel drive and four-wheel drive mid-size pickups and sport utility vehicles (SUV). It succeeds the Mazda BT-50 platform and is currently in production for vehicles sold under the Ford nameplate worldwide. Here are the Ford vehicles currently sold in the U.S. and Canada that ride on the Ford T6 platform:
In other markets, this platform underpins the Ford Troller T4, a rugged body-on-frame SUV with similar proportions as a Jeep Wrangler. Ford also sells the Everest (or Ford Endeavor) in international markets, a midsize SUV based on the Ranger that is not sold in North America.

The 2020 Ford Bronco is expected to hit the North American market sometime between the second and third quarter of the 2020 model year. As we write this, there are currently no technical information about the vehicle. There are also talks of a smaller “baby” Bronco. However, it will most likely ride on the Ford C2 platform.
The Ford Ranger is currently on sale in the U.S. and Canada. The 2020 Ford Bronco will be available for purchase sometime between the second and third quarter of the 2020 model year.
