2020 Bronco Wheelbase

In search of definitive information around the all-new Bronco its no surprise I am pulling references from the next closest thing, the new Ranger. From following month of development it seems Ford will do a global debut soon and with that will come specs that could be useful to us. While we wait, some very fundamental but important things can be picked at. Wheelbase is one of them along with proportions of the front end, cabin and bed area. How realistic is it to expect the Bronco to share a lot of this (aside from the bed of course)?

Would the Ranger's wheelbase not be a bit too long for a Bronco? I'm just imagining a rear extending all the way to the end of that bed and it doesn't fit into the more compact styling these days.

Well that depends on many things, one being if its a dynamic platform that allows for changes in wheelbase for a range of models, then there's the fact that China's version of the Bronco that Ford is selling seems rather long.

The new Ranger seems to be of average pickup size and I assume the platform was designed for that, but the Bronco is expected to be a midsize 4x4 utility vehicle. I don't think they will be sharing a platform.

You missed the whole dynamic part, that gave you the answer to why it could work. During this time in the market what they need more than ever are platforms that suit a range a vehicles and not just one or two lower volume models limited to a few markets.

the Ranger's platform is modular? Wasn't aware of that but it would be handy with large full sized SUVs like the Bronco. There's even a Ranger Raptor on the way, perhaps something that can be modified to fit the Bronco as well.

It has underpinned other models like the Brazilizan F250, Ford Transit and even the new Ford Everest. So already that's quite a range of models that get varying powertrains.

Think we'll get a Raptor Bronco since it is physically possible with the same underpinnings?

Yes, in a way this could be seen as the SUV version of the Ranger Raptor. Part of what helps is Hennessey Performance already applied that idea to the F150 Raptor. Most importantly it won't cost Ford that much more to implement.

Hennessey came out with an enclosed F150 Raptor? I meant a factory produce Bronco Raptor from Ford and not an aftermarket company. Or they may think there aren't enough buyers?
