Bronco will surely follow suit (since it's being built on the same platform as the next-gen Ranger):

The origins of consumer products are often anything but straightforward, and few get as complicated as the two-ton set of wheels in your driveway. Supply chains for the automotive industry span the planet, and the results can make for a car assembled in one country with parts from dozens of others, plus a badge on the hood from an automaker an ocean away. For shoppers who want to buy American-made products, Cars.com’s American-Made Index delves into such complexities by analyzing a range of factors to determine just how American your prospective car or truck might be.

Meaning IF the bronco is the same platform. And has MORE American made parts and accessories it SHOULD top the list.
2.7 and 3.0eb are made in Lima Ohio

What might hurt them tho.
3.0 Power stroke from UK
7 speed manual (no word yet) could be China or Germany
Hybrid could be from Michigan or Mexico

Isn't the 2.3 EcoBoost and 10 speed auto assembled and made in the USA?

Hard to say since it's a different platform than the current Ranger. For example, Chevy Traverse went from 1st to 50th when it changed generations.

I hope that the 2021 Ranger redesign is a little more masculine. Along with having something like a Tremor package to compete with the ZR2. With sharing the T6 platform with the new Bronco it should not be too hard to have a more off road worthy trim of the Ranger.

most of that was due to the engine and transmission changes.

From what I understand with the Bronco being a wrangler-killer, the new ranger is slated to be a Colorado/Tacoma killer.

Raptor would be the ZR2 competitor. I'm curious to see if there will be a rock-crawling package like the Tremor.

Isn't the transmission the joint Ford/GM one? Pretty sure those are US-built. I have no idea about the engine though.

Yes. The 9 speed is built in South Carolina

I wonder since the Blazer is made in Mexico and they share a platform if that there is some Mexico parts
