Report: New Ford Bronco Still a Ways Off

Ford enthusiasts can’t wait to see the hotly-anticipated returned Bronco, but the wait may be a little longer than originally expected. New information suggests the Bronco may not be revealed until 2020.

The folks over at Off-Road.com have uncovered information regarding Ford’s product launching timing. The information states that the Blue Oval brand plans to reveal its all-new 2020 Ford Explorer next, followed by a new version of the F-Series Super Duty truck. After the new Explorer and Super Duty, it will be the Bronco’s turn in the limelight.

From a timing perspective, the Explorer is rumored for reveal next month at the Detroit Auto Show. Given Ford almost always has a big announcement at this show and the fact the 2020 Explorer is getting close to production, the timing for this one makes sense.

The new Super Duty is slated for reveal sometime in later 2019, meaning the new Ford Bronco may not be revealed until 2020. It’s unclear if the Bronco will be a 2020 or a 2021 model, but Ford originally implied it would be a 2020.

After the Bronco announcement, Ford is expected to pivot attention back to trucks. A new version of the F-150 is slated to arrive in 2021. Ford has said the new F-150 will be able to reuse nearly all of the manufacturing equipment used by the current truck, suggesting the new one is going to be a fairly mild redesign from the current truck.

Although it isn’t known which auto show venue Ford will select to reveal the new Bronco or 2021 F-150, next year’s Detroit Auto Show for the Bronco intuitively seems like a logical pick. Ford did use the show to announce the Bronco’s return.

    Bronco will be the first vehicle on the T6 replacement platform.

    New platforms take time.


    True, but that said it can't get here soon enough IMO.

    Not sure why the hold up. I'd imagine it will sell well.
