First making its appearance in 1965, the Ford Bronco became an iconic American vehicle that roamed the streets for decades. While the original Bronco's time came to an end in the late '90s, Ford has announced a revival for the new millennium.

Unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco will be built, per Ford, as a "no-compromise midsize 4x4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city." Constructed on the same base frame as the Ranger pickup truck, the Bronco is expected to sport novel features that allow it to stand heads and shoulders above the rest of the pack.

Aside from external appearance, which is still sketchy at this point, the new 2020 Bronco is expected to have serious power beneath the hood. Its suspected that Ford will elect to use its popular EcoBoost engine, which is capable of producing 325 horsepower and substantial torque. If the powertrain is anything like the Ranger's, we can expect a Focus RS-derived 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. One thing that we do know for certain is that the new Bronco will sport a hybrid variant, which is keeping with Ford's focus on more environmentally-friendly design.

Price has yet to be determined but estimates place the new Bronco somewhere in the low to mid-30s, keeping it comparable with its competitors. While details on a release date are still sketchy, its suspected that the Bronco will launch sometime in January 2020, with subsequent release of variants throughout the year.
