Last summer, we reported on a rumor that the 2021 Ford Bronco would eventually spawn a Bronco pickup. It seems like a natural fit for a vehicle set to do battle with the Jeep Wrangler, which has its own pickup version in the Gladiator. But since the pickup version of Ford’s rugged SUV isn’t expected to enter production until 2024 as a 2025 model, we thought we’d go ahead and create some renderings of what we think it will look like.
Much like the Gladiator, the Bronco pickup will essentially be just that – a pickup version of its SUV brethren. Ford won’t look to reinvent the wheel here, because it doesn’t need to. After all, the new Bronco is already a hit, and it hasn’t even entered production yet. In fact, it’s rumored that over 200,000 people have already reserved one, just two weeks after its reveal.
So instead of messing with success, Ford will simply take the four-door Bronco and replace its rear cargo area with a proper bed for hauling stuff. Luckily, the lines match up perfectly here, so adding a square, vertical rear roof section is all it has to do. Engineers will need to integrate the body structure elements into the extremities of the cab, and away from the bed, however.
Like the Gladiator, the Bronco pickup will likely be a bit longer than the four-door Bronco SUV. In our rendering, the bed isn’t nearly as long as the Jeep’s, however, which some have criticized as being too long. One important thing to note is even though we left the spare tire on the tailgate, it’s unlikely that Ford would do the same on the production version of the pickup.
Ultimately, a Bronco pickup just makes too much sense not to happen. As Ford works to fill out its all-truck, SUV, and crossover lineup, a truck version of the Bronco will appeal to folks who need a pickup, but also covet the styling and rugged off-road capability of the Bronco SUV.
We’ll have much more on the Bronco pickup soon, so be sure to subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.
Don’t do any of that. Keep the actual ability of the Ranger by combining the off-road prowess of the Bronco with the sheer capability of the Ranger. Those gladiators are ugly and if you really want a truck, there’s the Raptor.
This would fill the void for those consumers who want a convertible lifestyle rugged truck. All the Bronco flexibility with a bed to boot! It would be a mistake for Ford not to build and add another vehicle to the Bronco lineup. Bring it on Ford!
I like this must better than the Ranger or Gladiator hopefully Ford will add a removable roof and leave the short bed with spare tire on the tailgate, it’s simply Cool looking done right “ I would buy this truck “
The Bronco would look great as a 2 door model with Removable roof, doors, a short bed with the spare tire on the tailgate. Am not sure about a 2 door Bronco Sport Truck aka Maverick
I want a Bronco pickup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A sasq Bronco truck could be a real draw for FORD. If they can get Ranger like towing numbers with the 2.7, MIC top, truck bed, better break over angle… good Lord, I am drooling…
I bought an Explorer Sport Trac in 2007 and kept it until the end of 2018 when I traded it for my current F-150. I didn’t care for the Ranger’s single engine choice. If Ford builds a Bronco Sport Trac with a V6 EcoBoost I know exactly what I will be trading the F-150 for.
With everything going on with the chips, hard tops etc. I would LOVE to see this come out in 2026 as a 60th Anniversary Edition. I am waiting on my 2 door but will definitely add the 4door truck to my stable.
Oh No!! A bronco is an SUV, not a pickup. Bronco Sport was bad enough, now this? How about staying true to the iconic roots of the Bronco!!
