During the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, Ford revealed that the Ford Ranger Pickup and the Ford Bronco SUV will be revived for the US market.
Although the US version of the Ranger will not differ much from the global-spec Ranger Pickup, the Bronco will be staying “true to its heritage,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s American president.
What this means is that the latest Bronco will be an off-road capable SUV. The executive failed to provide any hints on whether the model will be coming with two or four doors but said that it’ll be instantly recognizable as a Bronco, as reported by Automotive News.
Ford’s executive chairman, Bill Ford, confirmed at the show that the Ranger and Bronco will be employing body-on-frame built based on the T6 architecture, produced in the land down under.
Ford is basically saying that the Bronco will be a capable off-roader that will be recognizable to fans. Does this ring a bell?
Well, this is the exact thing Jeep is saying about the upcoming Wrangler. So, just like the Wrangler, the Bronco will be going on the route of achieving the “heritage 4×4” appeal.
