PostHeaderIcon Ford Bronco Wagon by Jay Leno, Ford Performance, LGE-CTS, and SEMA Garage

With a modern Ford Bronco just around the corner, TV personality and car collector Jay Leno gave new life to a first-generation Bronco Wagon with help from Ford Performance and various aftermarket tuning shops. Shown to the public at the 2019 SEMA Show, this Bronco retains the looks of the original SUV, but it features modern underpinnings with a supercharged V-8 built by Ford Performance. The story behind the vehicle is quite interesting, as it was left for Jay Leno as a joke by fellow TV host Craig Ferguson. Leno kept the vehicle in his garage unrestored until he decided that it deserves a new life.

Various companies and shops contributed to the project, starting with Ford Performance, FoMoCo’s very own performance division. Kincer Chassis, Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts, SEMA Garage, and LGE-CTS Motorsports.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Bronco R Race Prototype

The 2020 Ford Bronco R is a concept vehicle that Ford created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first-gen Bronco’s historic Baja 1000 win from 1969. Unveiled ahead of the 2019 SEMA Show, it’s the first real life incarnation of the modern Bronco and it previews a production crossover that will arrive in 2020.

The 2020 Bronco R was unveiled alongside the first-gen Bronco that Rod Hall and Larry Minor drove to an overall win 50 years ago at the 1969 Baja 1000. It features a similar livery, so it makes it easier to draw a design parallel between the two. The concept is fully functional and will be used as a test bed for the Bronco’s production drivetrain. The 2020 Bronco R will also be raced by Shelby Hall, the granddaughter of the late Rod Hall, at the 2019 Baja 1000.

PostHeaderIcon Screw You Jeep, The Ford Bronco Will Have a Removable Roll Cage

Don’t lie; you expect the new 2020 Ford Bronco to have a removable roof. The Jeep Wrangler has one, and so did the old-school classic Bronco. With that in mind, it’s damn near a necessity that the new Bronco features a removable roof – and the rumor mill seems to agree that it will happen. However, Ford may be taking things one step further, and has patented a
design for a removable roll cage – something that would give the new Bronco an airy experience, but would also harken back to the days when you could very easily die in the event of a rollover – the old-school Bronco with the removable roof didn’t have a roll cage at all.

PostHeaderIcon Word Around the Campfire Is That the 2020 Ford Bronco Will Have 33-inch Tires and a True-to-Life Manual Transmission

There is no denying that the upcoming Ford Bronco is the most anticipated vehicle at the moment. It has been in thr news constantly for almost a year now. The Corvette C8 kind of stole its thunder, but now that the mid-engined car’s hype has died down,the Bronco is back in the limelight in all its glory. From all the rumors and leaks surfacing online, it seems as though Ford is investing a lot in the Bronco so that it lives up to its credibility. When it comes to a hardcore off-roader, there are some things we purists can’t compromise on. And, it looks like Ford, too, knows this. This news will make a lot of you grin ear-to-ear. The new Ford Bronco could be mated to a manual transmission! Ford could also offer 33-inch off-road tires. Could our day get any better?

PostHeaderIcon Ford Takes a Page Out of Jeep’s Playbook; Will Launch the 2020 Bronco With Tons of Accessories Available

The return of the Ford Bronco is a big deal to everyone who has fond memories of the nameplate. Turns out, eager-beaver customers aren’t the only ones gearing up for the Bronco’s arrival in 2021. Aftermarket company and longtime Ford running mate Yakima is already hard at work developing post-production bits and accessories for the returning off-roader.

It may seem strange that a company existing outside of the Blue Oval umbrella already has access to something as important as the Bronco’s developmental plans, but for those who are unfamiliar, Yakima and Ford have a shared history that includes the tuner building accessories for several Ford models, including the Ranger pickup. So with the Bronco’s arrival on the horizon, Yakima’s already in its own lab creating all the aftermarket goodness future owners of the off-road SUV would possibly want in their rides.

Ford seems to be investing heavily in the upcoming Bronco. It looks like the Blue Oval is expecting the Bronco to be a runaway success, and to make sure that happens, the automaker is leaving no stone unturned. Ford has declared war on the Wrangler, plans to introduce a Raptor version, and now, has filed for multiple trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, that could hint at different trim levels, special editions, or even concepts. If everything goes according to plan, the new Ford Bronco could become the most badass SUV on the market.

The ’Raptor’ moniker is well on its way to becoming a legendary status in the Ford lineup. First it was the F-150 Raptor, then we heard about the Ranger Raptor, and now, the Bronco might get hitched to it as well. The Bronco itself is being hyped for a comeback, and the Raptor news has gotten us all the more excited. According to TFLnow, a source that monitors the new Bronco very closely, has said that the Bronco will receive the Raptor treatment. Well, that helped my mind get off the Corvette C8 excitement for a while!

Already confirmed for a 2020 debut, the upcoming Ford Bronco is still a mystery, but various leaks have already provided info on its exterior design. Now, another leak confirms that the SUV will arrive with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine under the hood.

PostHeaderIcon Zero Labs All-Electric Ford Bronco Restomod Is the Best Bronco

We get it; you’re eager to see what the 2020 Ford Bronco will be like. Yet, somehow, the idea of an all-electric Bronco restomod is making our hearts beat faster. Zero Labs’ plans in this direction are, at this point, a string of nicely worded phrases backed up by a video and a photo gallery that, in all fairness, left us asking for more.

The company also claims that the finite product is “restored and handcrafted to show car quality” and powered by a “covert, all-electric drive system.”

That’s why we dug deeper to see what hides behind the marketing blah-blah.

PostHeaderIcon Ford’s Latest Patent Filing Hints at the Name of the New Baby Bronco

.split833630

The Ford Bronco is the next hot thing in the world of SUVs. Relying on the cache built up by the original Bronco that was discontinued in 1996, the new model is tipped to sell in big numbers if Ford gets the recipe right and revives an off-roader revered for its no-nonsense attitude. We’re now hearing that the name ’Scout,’ along with the ’Bronco Scout’ moniker are in the process of being trademarked by Ford through the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The ’Scout’ name can either refer to the upcoming ’Baby Bronco’ or just a trim level of the Bronco itself.

Information has been thin regarding the 2021 Ford Bronco, which is set to go into production this year. We’ve heard a lot of rumors, but few can be checked and considered as facts. For instance, we’ve heard that the Bronco will come with either two or four doors and a removable soft top option will be available as Ford plans to take on the Jeep Wrangler – a rumor backed by these patent fillings. We also reported that the 2019 Ford Ranger and the 2021 Ford Bronco will sport the same underpinnings and that the Bronco might be fitted with a seven-speed manual after all. Let’s let the rumor mill spin a bit more and talk about the Scout.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Ford Bronco Could Have a Retractable Cloth Roof and Removable Doors – A True Jeep Wrangler Competitor

Life for the Jeep Wrangler might become more difficult and complicated as there are other manufacturers out there plotting its demise by launching competitive alternatives to it. Land Rover is on the final stretch with its all-new Defender, as is Ford with its upcoming Bronco, a model that, according to some recent patent filings, is apparently going to have many of the same party pieces as the Wrangler. It may not have the folding windshield, but a removable top and removable doors are certainly on the list of goodies for the Bronco.

Ford’s best-performing dealers were reportedly given an early look at a prototype for the upcoming 2020 Bronco, a model that’s been in the works for a few years, but just like Land Rover’s new Defender, the project is and has been shrouded in secrecy. It’s quite clear that the Blue Oval intends for it to fight not the hugely capable and successful Jeep Wrangler, but the all-new Defender as well. Rumor says that it will be offered with a removable top and could be offered in two- or four-door form!

The new Ford Bronco will arrive in 2020, but those who can’t wait that long now have the opportunity to have their fill with the original Bronco courtesy of a company called Gateway Bronco. The Illinois-based outfit has been restoring the first-generation Bronco since it started operations in 2016. But thanks to a partnership with Ford, Gateway Bronco has announced plans to go beyond restoring original Broncos and will build brand new, old Broncos under license from Ford. Mind you; these aren’t Gateway’s “interpretation” of the original Broncos. These are original Broncos that Gateway will build with the blessing of Ford. They even come with a five-year, bumper-to-bumper warranty. Gateway plans to build three versions of the original Bronco, all in limited quantities. The price range of these models goes from $120,000 to $180,000.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Bronco II aka “Baby Bronco”

In March 2018, Ford unveiled its plans for the next two years, which includes many new models and a shift toward crossovers in the U.S. The bigger news includes dropping most cars in favor of SUVs, a hybrid version of the F-150 truck, and a revival of the iconic Bronco. The latter will be joined by a smaller sibling with similar boxy cues. A baby Bronco!

Described as a vehicle “designed to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends,” the compact SUV was partially revealed in a teaser photo. In November 2018, photos of the actual vehicle leaked onto the web following a Ford dealer meeting. And based on what we can see, it’s aimed directly at Jeep. Specifically, while the new-generation Bronco will go against the all-popular Wrangler, the smaller crossover will take on the Renegade. There’s no official name for it yet, and details remain a mystery, but it could roll out by 2020.

Update 09/26/2019: Our spy photographers finally caught a real-life look at the all-new Ford Baby Bronco – possibly known as the Bronco II, if Ford decides to revive that name – so check out the special “Spy Shots” section below to see the new shots and learn more about it.

The Bronco is coming back, and we’re still waiting with bated breath for all the juicy details from Ford. Luckily, it’s looking like we won’t have to wait too much longer, as a full debut is expected early next year at the Detroit Auto Show this coming January. However, before then, we’re picking apart all the rumors we can get our hands on, including the possibility Ford will source the Bronco’s underlying structure from the new Ranger.

PostHeaderIcon Is This the 2021 Ford Bronco II, aka “Baby Bronco?”

As Ford moves away from its line of sedans, it’s instead focusing (perhaps “concentrating” is a more appropriate word) much more heavily on its crossovers and trucks. As such, the Blue Oval has a swarm of fresh prototypes out on the road, like this recently spied compact crossover – leading us to ask, is this the new Baby Bronco?
