CheatSheet’s 5 Ford Bronco Predictions



While we’ve been speculating on the Bronco’s future engine, infotainment system, ground clearance and even which platform it could be based on, so has CheatSheet. They have put together 5 predictions for the next gen Ford Bronco which they think are pretty likely to appear.

1. V8 engine not in it's future.
While the 5.0-liter V8 is still offered with the F-150, Ford is trying to phase out this engine and replace it with the EcoBoost. For example, the new 2017 SVT Raptor was offered with a 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 instead of the 6.2-liter V8 which was found in the previous generation. We could very well see a turbocharged EcoBoost V6 under the hood of the new Bronco.

2. It won’t compete with the Tahoe-fighter
While the Chevy Tahoe was designed as a Bronco competitor back in 1992, it now sits as a full-size 4 door luxury SUV and weighs a hefty 5,600 pounds. The Ford Bronco is predicted to sit at the sweet spot between the large Tahoe and small Wrangler in terms of size. The Bronco will also be a great deal lighter than the Tahoe with a body that is most likely to be constructed from aluminum.

3. Ford Bronco will be made in America
This is mostly due to the all imposing Chicken Tax levied on foreign made vehicles. To overcome this, Ford will need to build them in America and there just happens to be an opening at Ford’s Michigan plant since both the C-Max and Focus’ production will be moved to Mexico. The plant’s future truck production was also hinted at in the contract between Ford and the U.A.W.

4. It will be four/rear-wheel drive
CheatSheet thinks that the new Ford Bronco will be offered in both rear wheel drive and all-wheel drive; AWD because it’ll still need to compete with the Wrangler’ off road capabilities and RWD because it’s available with the Ranger.

5. Likely to have a Raptor version after the initial release.
They just couldn’t see a reason why Ford won’t come out with a Raptor version. The Bronco’s off road capabilities and ability to change into a daily driver paired with the tough as nails Raptor would make an unstoppable machine.

Do you think their predictions are accurate?

I think at this point people are over the fact we won't be getting a V8 and just care that V6's put out enough power to feel like a V8.

The Raptor version sounds really cool. I would be interested. I don't think a V8 is needed really. Ford has great smaller engines. The rest sounds pretty much like what I'd expect.

Feel like the raptor layout will look like the middle picture. But a bit bigger.

I doubt the new Bronco will resemble that Bronco from the 60s.

Too bad Cheatsheet never really released an estimated time for a new Bronco because we haven't heard much of anything since the initial news came out. Think we'll hear about it in the upcoming auto shows?

Pretty much anywhere between 2017-2020. But it's still not guaranteed. Ford themselves haven't used the name Bronco yet, but they have said that they will be bringing out 4 more SUVs over the next 4 years.

going to be a long wait and so far there hasn't been any information hinting to expect something around this years round of auto shows.

if nothing comes up I will start looking elsewhere, Wrangler might be it.

I doubt anything will be at this years auto show. Nonetheless, that's in what November I think ?

#2 is exactly what I was thinking as much as we all hate to admit it, it won't be the Bronco we've always known but instead something much more along the lines of a Wrangler, Toyota FJ, etc. But as long as it does the Bronco "things" it should do... there should be no complaints.
