Unveiled as part of a larger presentation, the teaser images give us our first glimpse of the all-new Bronco which will be launched in 2020. While the SUV is covered by a sheet, you can clearly see rumors about the model being a rebadged Ford Everest were dead wrong.
Instead, the Bronco appears to a Jeep Wrangler competitor as it has an upright fascia, a relatively flat hood and a rear-mounted spare tire. The model also has relatively large wheel openings which suggest owners could easily swap out the standard tires and wheels for a more off-road focused setup.
Ford didn’t say much about the model but, judging by its size, the Bronco could be a two-door SUV. The model also appears to be relatively faithful to the well-received Bronco concept from 2004.
Besides teasing the Bronco, Ford released the first image of a “yet-to-be-named off-road small utility” vehicle. The company didn’t say much about the model but stated it will appeal to a “growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends.”
As you can see, the model will be a relatively small SUV which features circular LED headlights and a slender grille with Ford lettering. Additional details are hard to make out but the model has plastic body cladding, a roof rack and metallic accents.
Sticking with crossovers and SUVs, Ford confirmed the next-generation Escape and Explorer will be unveiled next year. An Explorer ST will “soon follow” and the company says the model will is one of 12 new Ford Performance vehicles coming by 2020.
The teaser image doesn’t reveal much but reports have suggested the crossover will come equipped with the same twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that resides in the Lincoln Continental and MKZ. It produces 400 hp (298 kW) and 400 lb-ft (542Nm) of torque. This would be a modest jump from the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 which develops 365 hp (272 kW) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque in the Explorer Sport.
Finally, Ford released a new teaser image of the Mustang Shelby GT500. Originally announced in January, the high-performance model will apparently have pre-facelift headlights and a massive grille with a prominent Cobra emblem. We can also see black body stripes and what appears to be a front splitter.
Ford has already confirmed the GT500 will be powered by a supercharged V8 engine which produces more than 700 hp (522 kW). The model will also have “innovative track technologies, performance hardware, plus aggressive and functional track-tuned styling.”
