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
