Rumors: New Bronco to Resemble Troller and Powered by EcoBoost V6

An article from Gearpatrol purports to reveal some new Ford Bronco details directly from a Ford Engineer familiar with the development of the 2020/2021 Bronco. Here’s the summary of the claimed details:

— Bronco is in 3rd design phase (typically, there’s only one phase). Another design study has been commissioned because it looks too much like a Wrangler.

— Basic concept is that it will look like a Ford Troller with 4 doors

— No 2 door version because “there’s just no market for it”

— Removable modular roof that comes off in three sections (only top section removable, not back)

— “They want it comparable [to the Wrangler] in every way, except rock crawling.”

— Will meet water wading depth requirements of 500mm

— Raptor Bronco is not in the works yet

— Powerplant will be similar to the 325 horsepower 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 found in Fusion

— Hybrid version being discussed

— Starting price in the $30,000 range

— Still on track for 2020 release
