Instead of a 3-door configuration, the new Ford Bronco is a 5-door SUV. The retro-styled SUV features round LED daytime running lights, which resembles the design of headlights of the first generation SUV. The massive grille comes with “FORD” name right at the centre. The side profile is particular plane and boxy, though it has strong character lines for aggressive looks. The SUV has a contrasting white roof. The rear pictures are yet to arrive, but it is expected to feature a large vertical LED tail-lights and massive bumper. The SUV rides on large black alloys wrapped with chunky tyres.
The SUV is expected to feature a new 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbo-petrol engine. Power will be transmitted to all-4 wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox. The SUV is not likely to arrive in India. For instance, the brand is preparing a mid-life facelift of its popular Endeavour SUV. The company is also working on an all-new C-SUV, which will be based on the next-gen Mahindra XUV500 platform.
