Sources Say: The 2020 Ford Bronco Will Have A Removable Roof

The forthcoming Ford Bronco SUV, which will return to the market in 2020 after a 24-year hiatus, will likely only be available as a four-door, but that doesn’t mean that Ford is completely neglecting the wants of enthusiasts.

Case in point: according to The Truth About Cars, the future Bronco will come equipped with a removable roof for open-air excursions.

TTAC reports that according to sources, the 2020 Ford Bronco will have a feature called “Air Roof,” in which the roof is composed of as many as six panels that can be removed and stored in the vehicle. The Jeep Renegade uses essentially the same system, which Jeep has branded “MySky.” And, like the Renegade, the Ford Bronco is expected to offer fixed roof rails.

Whether or not the new Ford Bronco will have a removable roof has been a prominent question from intrigued consumers.┬áThe most-recent iteration of the vehicle – its fifth generation, produced from 1992 to 1996 – had a roof that legally couldn’t be removed as it supported the Center-Mounted High Stop Light (CMHSL). With enough determination, an owner could still theoretically take it off.

    Cool, now all we need to find out is if they are going to offer a two door model or not.

    Okay so we know that the new Bronco is going to compete with jeep and be body-on-frame, which is good. I’m figuring the truck will have a Raptor-style suspension, Beadlock wheels and rugged tires. That’s all well and good but the real question is what’s under the hood? If this is going to be a real bronco it needs to have a 302ci V8 engine. Now I’m all for an optional 2.7L Ecoboost base engine but the SUV needs the 5.0L V8 with a 10-speed auto and everything the raptor has in its arsenal. It doesn’t need the raptor’s speed just its strength. Also, this needs to be a three-door vehicle only. Two doors on the side and one on the back and it needs to seat five people comfortably.
