Is This What Could Become of the 2020 Ford Bronco?
An Artist Rendered Bronco Leaves Us…Underwhelmed
Updated August 29, 2017
We have seen some awesome digitally created designs for . While the concept art is nothing to laugh at, we’re still waiting to see what Ford is actually going to deliver. Now, the car world has been more than eager to see more of the next Bronco, but apart from , we don’t have a lot to go on.
So while we sit in our garden of speculation, let’s talk about another design we’ve recently caught wind of.
An artist by the name of Kleber Silva developed a new look for the 2020 Ford Bronco and it is very different from some of the designs we’ve been drooling over. In a word – pedestrian.
Silva took a less extravagant path in creating the next gen Ford Bronco. The car actually features modern styling touches which are only slightly inspired by the robust and elegant lines of the old truck. Silva crafted two versions – a five door and a three door. If we’re to believe the rumors, however, we may not be seeing the three door version once production starts. According to some previous information, Ford’s Chief Technical Officer Raj Nair stated that the Bronco will ride on Ranger chassis. Despite the truck chassis and, obviously, part sharing between the models based on it, the Bronco will still be “it’s own car”.
EcoBoost Heaven For The 2020 Ford Bronco
As it turns out, it may even see a real competitor against the Jeep Wrangler. In that case, the car should receive a 2.7-liter EcoBoost. Possibly a very similar one to the motor currently . High-performance version? Probably. And that with the high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost. Honestly, we do not expect N/A engines. It will be a 2020 model after all.
A Hybrid? I wouldn’t rule it out.
Overall, Silva’s design is a very practical take on the monster Bronco we’ve all been dreaming of, and as unfortunate as it may be, he’s probably not far off from what a suburbanized Bronco would look like. Hopefully Ford decides to stray away from the cookie cutter for this one, but let’s not forget that their ultimate goal is to sell cars. If they can sell more Broncos by dumbing them down into neighborhood grocery getters, you’d better believe we’re getting an EcoBoost grocery getter.
