The Ford Bronco is one of the most loved vehicle that was produced by Ford from 1966 to 1996, with five distinct generations. The first generation (1966-1977) was introduced as a competitor to the small four-wheel-drive compact SUV’s that included the Jeep CJ-5 and International Harvester Scout. It was originally known as an ORV (Off-Road Vehicle) and the idea behind the Ford Bronco began when Ford product manager Donald N. Frey, who also conceived the Ford Mustang; and similarly, Lee Iacocca pushed their idea into production. In 2004, at the North American International Auto Show, a Bronco concept car was unveiled, but due to release of the new Ford Escape, the project was dropped. Now after more than 20 years of waiting, the company plans to introduce its newest 2018 Ford Bronco. The company hopes to once again conquer the markets with this vehicle as they’ve done it in the last 5 decades. In that purpose the Ford invested $700 million in renovating Michigan assembly plant where the 2018 Ford Bronco will be manufactured.

Possible Engine and Transmission of 2018 Ford Bronco

Up to this point, there aren’t many information about the engine and performance of the new 2018 Ford Bronco. Reliable reports say that the base model will have a diesel engine, capable of delivering up to 300 horsepower and 450 pounds-feet of torque. However, some other engine choices are also expected, most likely two petrol engines. For example, a 2.3-liter engine that produces 280 horsepower and up to 340 pounds-feet of torque, and a 3.5-liter Eco-Boost engine which can deliver 340 horsepower and more than 420 pounds-feet of torque. All engines will be paired to a 10-speed programmed transmission. When it comes to fuel performance, there are many people who are worried about the fuel economy of the new Ford Bronco, which is understandable, since it is known that Ford vehicles, especially off-road consume lots of fuel. The potential customers will feel relived, knowing that the new 2018 Ford Bronco will have an improved fuel economy compared to the previous models.

2018 Ford Bronco Exterior

The exterior of the 2018 Ford Bronco will probably be inspired by the 2004 Bronco concept, and there are couple of things which are similar to those of Ford F-150 model. The measurements are not known yet, but we expect that Bronco will be absolutely huge. It will feature boxy, but muscular shape, and the conclusion is that Bronco leaves a lasting impression. It has such unique and powerful design, which leaves the impression that you can easily survive the apocalypse once you enter inside. The company will use top quality materials in large quantities, such as high-strength steel in the frame and aluminum in the body structure. This resulted in reducing significant amount of weight, which improved fuel economy and dynamic of its engine.
