Ever since Ford made the announcement that four new SUVs are coming before 2020, Bronco fans have been bucking wild with speculation of a reprisal of OJ’s favorite getaway vehicle.
Talk of a new Bronco has been rampant for some years now, with the Michigan Assembly plant mooted as a possible building location and the Ranger as a likely platform.
Bronco is one of Ford’s most loved nameplates, with forum Bronco6G dedicated to discussing a revival of tough SUV. They’ve put together a very interesting rendition of a possible future Bronco, which pays homage to the original 1965 model, the 2004 concept and other iterations. It fuses them with modern styling elements and rugged off-road appointments.
Tom, of Bronco 6G told us:
“You can see the classic round headlights and square inset front grille evolved from the 1st gen Bronco, which was also showcased in the retro-futuristic 2004 Bronco concept. Our concept features a modern body on frame next generation Bronco that retains a tall, boxy, tough, no-frills design with a strong focus on utility and off-road capabilities. We fitted separate versions with different grilles, wheel fender shapes, varying ride heights, and cargo rack for some different looks.”
Well, Tom we think the rendering hits the sweet spot and if Ford is indeed planning to resurrect the Bronco, they could do a lot worse than to head in this direction. Over to you guys; would you buy a new Ford Bronco if it looked like this?
