2017 Ford Bronco

We all remember this legendary SUV, which was produced from 1966 to 1996. During these 30 years, we have seen five generations of it. The last-generation Bronco was produced from 1992 to 1996, when it was replaced by Expedition, which is still on the run. Although this model wasn’t produced for almost 20 years, company seems to have in plans to once again start the production of Bronco. There were already some attempts in early 2000’s, when 2004 Bronco was presented, but it ended only on a concept. Nowadays, there is a high possibility that sixth generation will finally come. According to the rumors, new SUV will probably come in 2016 as 2017 Ford Bronco, 50 years after its original launch.

2017 Ford Bronco design

The last model was launched in 1992 and the concept was presented in 2004 so it seems that this is pretty much very fresh start. The 2017 Ford Bronco will use most of the technical solutions from 2013 Atlas Concept, which was used as a base for new F-150, which came last year as new-generation model. The most important is that new model will use the same technologies that include massive use of lightweight materials such as aluminum in the body structure and high-strength steel (HSS) in the frame. Thanks to use of these materials, new F-150 came about 750 pounds lighter than its predecessor and we have no doubt that 2017 Bronco will be very light too. When it is about SUV’s look, it is expected that new model will be inspired by 2004 Bronco Concept. It will feature things like box-like roof line or round headlights, but will also have plenty of modern design solutions which will make it more up-to-date. Interior will definitely follow the standards of modern SUV’s, so expect to see 2017 Ford Bronco with very car-like cabin, with comfortable and full-of-high-tech features.

Although it isn’t official yet, it is pretty much for sure that 2017 Ford Bronco will use company’s new EcoBoost units. Those will be 2.7 liter V6 with 325 horses and 375 lb-ft of torque and also 3.5 liter V6, which will have an output of 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of twist. It is also rumored that there will be a V8 variant in offer too. It will probably be the same 5.0 liter V8 that is used for 2015 Ford F-150. The 2017 Bronco will be equipped with 6-speed automatic transmission.

2017 Ford Bronco release date

At this point, it is hard to say something more precise about 2017 Ford Bronco launch date. For now, it is known that it will probably come somewhere in the second half of 2016.
