The Next Evolution In Ford Design

Ford is set to release an electric SUV sometime around 2020 which comes during a time that they're due for a new take on design. Already the conceptual rendering below gives some insight into what might happen. Having seen other Ford SUV concepts and production models it might be safe to say some of this might rub off on the new Bronco. Some might even suggest it already has some Bronco boldness going on.

What are the odds we'll see some of this some of this design come to market in a production Bronco?

No doubt Ford will use electric power in some package of the new Bronco, thats been said already. Design wise.....gawd I hope not. Although thats not a bad looking vehicle for what it is, but what it is...is NOT a Bronco.

I'm excited as the next person about the benefits that come with electric/hybrid systems, but I really hope that Ford doesn't go overboard with modernizing classic designs. I have no problem with the styling of this vehicle, but its not worthy of a Bronco nameplate. A new Edge or Explorer sure.

Considering all the new models that Ford hopes to release in the next few years, I would expect that the vast majority of their upcoming electrics will be all new. I do wonder how they are going to stack up to competitors though, seeing as how Ford hasn't really had the opportunity to work on and improve an electric platform. By the time we saw the Focus EV hit the market, it was severely outclassed.

They do have some catching up to do with their EV tech, but I'm sure they could call upon a third party company for some more comparable components. Really all they would need is a better battery, and most automakers aren't manufacturing those in house anyways.

Luckily Ford already offers some impressive driving aid tech across their lineup, as that's become a pretty common feature with new EV's. And I think that Tesla's gigafactory is putting out more batteries than all other EV manufacturers combined.

I like the new styling direction that Ford seems to be headed in. They have made some incredible improvements to the Focus and Fiesta in the last couple years, which makes their decision to move away from cars even more odd. I felt like they were really starting to hit their stride.

Tell me about it because my confidence in the new design direction grew once I seen products like the new Edge come out. Unfortunately its a vehicle that can't get too crazy with bold design, sporty is more its identity. The next Taurus (or its successor) however, will give Ford a chance to bring more of the concept to a mainstream model.

Well the repurposing of discontinued nameplates, could mean that we'll at least be seeing some original designs. I personally don't really like this growing trend in the industry, as I feel like it disregards the heritage of these well known models.

Yeah I was pretty disappointed to see what Mitsubishi did with the Eclipse, and rumors are that they'll be doing the same thing to the Lancer. I don't know why they wouldn't just relaunch them as electric models instead. Imo the new Blazer doesn't really live up to its legacy either.
