Ford announced this morning that the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco would debut next spring. Rumors claim that the truck will launch as a 2020 model after all. To celebrate the announcement of the world debut next spring, Ford premiered a video that took a look back at several of the Broncos over the years.
To go along with that teaser video, Ford has put out a massive database of Bronco photos that take a look at how the vehicle changed over the years. The photos include the 1966 Ford Bronco Prototype and then skips ahead to the production version and picks up with the 1968 Ford Bronco.
One of our favorite pictures is the 1968 Ford Bronco in racing trim. Like many fans of the Bronco, we are partial to the first-gen models. The archive shows the transition to the larger body style in 1978 and the change to the smaller and less loved Bronco II in 1982. The transition from the Bronco II back to the larger body style happened in 1989 through the SUV’s discontinuation in when it was replaced with the Expedition for the 1997 model year.
To say people are super excited about the Bronco would be an understatement. The new Ford Bronco is expected to have a removable roof and removable doors. Past rumors had suggested that the Bronco would debut late in 2020 as a 2021 model. With Ford calling out the debut for the Spring of 2020 as the 2020 Ford Bronco, the suggestion is that it will launch well before the end of the year. If the launch was expected near the end of 2020, speculation suggests the Bronco would debut as a 2021 model.
