The 2020 Ford Bronco Will Likely Be A Global Model

At the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Ford announced that the Ford Ranger mid-size pickup and Ford Bronco SUV would return to the US market in the coming years, confirming rumors that have been circulating for well over a year.

Ford hasn’t announced what other markets might receive the new Ford Bronco, which we suspect will strongly resemble the Ranger T6-based Ford Everest SUV (pictured). But according to UK website Auto Express, it seems likely that the Bronco will be a global model, based on rumors that right-hand-drive prototypes have been spotted testing in Australia.

It’s also worth noting that the SUV segment isn’t only booming in the United States, but in numerous overseas markets, as well.

Whether Ford’s next Ranger-based SUV will take the “Bronco” name in markets outside the US or wear the “Everest” (or Indian “Endeavour”) nameplate remains to be seen. Ultimately, however, it shouldn’t prove too difficult to make a business case for the forthcoming Ford Bronco in the UK.

    They need to make a two door available.
    Use the new ranger pickup single cab front if they are going to make a standard single cab option.
    While not in this class, Subaru had the original Brat and later replaced it with a 4 door 1/2 assed vehicle which did not sell well.
    Everybody makes a 4 door, Wrangler is the only exception in that regard.
    You would think that the market would favor a shorter WB with MT nesters and not having kids to haul around.

    If it looks anything like the Everest then I am out..not true to bronco name. it doesn’t look any different from any other mid size SUV..the Explorer is nicer looking than the Everest by far! Ford should hire the folks that did the artist renderings as designers!..they know what people like..enough of the appliance look! The Bronco is meant for off road..could you imagine if Jeep made a jeep look like an appliance?

    NO TO THE 4 DOOR! The Bronco has always been 2 door and should STAY 2 door! Was planning on getting one but if its 4 I’m OUT!
