2021 Ford Bronco Will Get A Hybrid Powertrain Option, Too

Ford’s continuous push for electrification and new high-riding vehicles will meet each other in the form of a hybrid Bronco. The model was confirmed by the brand’s head honcho, Jim Hackett, at the annual shareholders’ meeting, according to AutoNews reporter Michael Martinez on Instagram.

No details are being known about the electrified powertrain, but rumor has it that it will probably join a couple of gasoline-powered internal combustion engines.

The 2.3-liter turbo-four, as well as the 2.7-liter V6, are expected to power the ICE versions and will likely be coupled to a 10-speed automatic transmission, with a possible manual gearbox joining the range later on as an option, although nothing’s official yet.

Poised to take on the Jeep Wrangler, the all-new Bronco is believed to arrive in late 2020 after a 24-year hiatus. The rugged off-roader will feature removable doors and hard top that can be stored in the cargo compartment, as dealers have confirmed after reportedly being shown a two-door variant, while a four-door will also be available.

A few months before dropping the veil off the 2021 Bronco, Ford will reportedly uncover its smaller sibling. It will be based on the all-new Escape (Kuga in Europe), but will look nothing like it, as it will get a boxier styling. The engines will come from the Escape, which will go on sale this fall with a 250 hp 2.0-liter EcoBoost, a 180 hp 1.5-liter EcoBoost, a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid.

Ford will also put some pressure on the Tesla Model X and other electric SUVs with a Mustang-inspired electric crossover set to arrive in 2020.

        did i ever say it was someone’s fault, sweetie?

        • Zandit75

          No, but it seemed like you were not trying to take responsibility for your own lack of understanding.
          I’m guessing you’re the reason we have warnings on aircraft doors to not open them during flight,

    Of course it will.

    The renders are fanboy wishful thinking. For example, they show a solid front axle when test mule spy photos clearly show independent suspension.
