Everyone has expectations, everyone can expect and certainly everyone has a dream. Apparently, there are so many people out there who expect Ford to bring back the Bronco to the production line, please say YES if it’s true and say NO if you don’t agree! Perhaps this expectation is like a dream in broad daylight, but I’ve recently seen a lot of discussion on various community forums and social media such as Facebook and Reddit. I’m probably not going to mention one by one, because I don’t want this article too long like a history book. :D LOL…
As you know that there is no any confirmation from Ford so far regarding the sixth-gen Bronco. Some people may not like rumors, they even treat it as nonsense, but all can be started from here, a rumor which they describe as nonsense. Ford may be releasing the 2018 Bronco as an off-road vehicle (ORV) in the future and enjoy great cake in its specific market which is currently still dominated by the Jeep Wrangler. But it’s only a matter of time to uncover the truth.
There’s no official word on specs, but the upcoming Ford Bronco allegedly will offer three different engines, two gasolines and one diesel. Both gasoline powertrain will reportedly borrowed from the current Ford F-150 pickup, although we understand that it’s just a rumor. The twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine is expected to be the first option, with its peak output at least 365 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.
The 5.0-liter V8 engine will likely be available as well, which is good enough to generate 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. The last one, the 2018 Ford Bronco rumored to get a 4.5-liter diesel engine. Regardless of which engine is selected, the next Bronco may be available with four-wheel drive setup that can be paired to either a newly-developed six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
So I have one question to you, should Ford bring back the Bronco? Let me know what your expectations and let’s end this rumor. Please send your vote in the poll below or share your opinion in the comments field. Your comment is appreciated here.
