We think this is pretty much the 2020 Ford Bronco’s final design

LISTEN 02:51

2020 is the year that will finally give us the new Ford Bronco, after countless rumors and information leaks that preceded Ford’s decision to revive the moniker it killed in 1996.

Renderings of the 2020 Ford Bronco have been popping up on the internets with regularity, but none of them match the accuracy of a particular set concocted and improved by Bronco6g’s member TopRecon.

The internet’s latest love affair with the Ford Bronco started when FoMoCo launched the Baja-ready (well, not really) Bronco R prototype. Aside from its early unlucky breakdown that stamped every chance it had of finishing the race, the Bronco R inspired some forum die-hards into coming up with pixel-manipulated, production-ready versions of the 2020 Bronco ‘for the sake of beating Road&Track’s photoshoppers to market.’

TopRecon’s first rendering was a two-door, hardtop Bronco would-be, followed by an updated version with tweaked A-pillars, side mirrors, and front grille. This too, was then given the Raptor-y flavor via blackened-out headlights with round LED graphics and Ford Performance Blue body paint. Needless to say, these renderings look spot on and since the artist took inspiration from the Bronco R, we have reason to believe that the production version of the Bronco will a lot like them.

Those of you who have been following the Bronco rumour mill know that it’s one of the most anticipated cars of 2020.

What’s more, a lot of buzz was enveloped the topic on every level you can think of. People started wondering what will power the Bronco, what sort of gearbox it is likely to use, and just how much will the Blue Oval ask for it. One thing’s for sure: the new Ford Bronco is set to make a debut in spring 2020, and Automobile Magazine says a Bronco Pickup will come in 2024 to do battle against the Jeep Gladiator.

Here’s a short list of the most significant Bronco-related rumors that popped online over the past year:

  • it will come in both four-door and two-door guises, according to Automotive News
  • the doors and the roof will come off, Wrangler-style, according to patents published by Ford
  • it will share the same platform with the Ranger (officially confirmed to Road&Track by Ford global operations president Jon Hinrichs)
  • one possible engine is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline-four found inside the Ranger, which is good for 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque
  • a 10-speed automatic is in the cards, but Jalopnik reported that the Bronco is also a candidate for Ford’s 2.7-liter V-6 bolted to a seven-speed manual ‘box
  • the V-6 could crank out north of 300 horsepower and up to 400 pound-feet of torque
  • don’t rule out a hybrid version mixing a 3.3-liter V-6 and an electric motor
  • an all-electric Bronco sounds nice, but it might steal customers from the Mustang Mach-E. We’d really like to see one, though.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
