2020 Ford Bronco Renderings Show the Shape of Things to Come

From 1966 to 1996, the Ford Bronco spawned five generations. All of them were popular in the United States and beyond, which is curious considering that many people were sad to see the Bronco go to make way for the Expedition. Come on, FoMoCo! You know what we want from a full-size SUV, so give us the Bronco back... or else.

Our prayers have been heard, and yes, a 2020 Ford Bronco is happening. Ford is investing $700 million in the Michigan Truck Plant in preparation for an all-new model slated for 2018. Yup, it’s the Ford Ranger mid-size pickup truck we’ve been waiting for quite some time now. After the Ranger, the all-new Bronco is set to follow.

What the Ford-UAW contract doesn’t help with is what the sixth-generation Bronco will look like. Then again, it has to look fantastic to be relevant against the next-generation four-door Jeep Wrangler, which is slated to arrive by 2018. Thus, our friends from Bronco6G imagined how the 2020 Ford Bronco could look. Two models were used for inspiration when Bronco6G put together these renderings.

Borrow the best design elements from the current crop of trucks (as in the F-150 and facelifted Ranger) and SUVs (like the Flex and Edge), combine them with the first-generation Bronco and the 2004 Ford Bronco Concept, and the final result ticks all the right boxes. It would be extraordinary if the production model looked like the rendered model, yet we all know that’s wishful thinking on our part.

As a retro-modern heritage model, the 2020 Ford Bronco is the reputation-building product the Blue Oval needs to compete against the Jeep Wrangler. Although it’s good at what it does, the Expedition is nothing more than a high-volume product with family hauling credit.

If there is a God of high-octane gas and burning rubber, please convince Ford to offer a Raptor high-performance version of the all-new Bronco as the cherry on the top. Pretty please with sugar on top?
