Is the Bronco Really Back?

Well according to some of the most trusted names in the industry, yes it is.

Both the Detroit Free Press and Automotive News are reporting that Ford will use the new found capacity at its Michigan Assembly Plant to build both the Bronco and Ranger.

The Ranger plan is fairly straight forward, build the World Market design Ranger at home, much like GM has done with Colorado and Canyon.

The Bronco however is a more unique situation.

They could build it on the F-150's platform, but that would leave the Bronco in a strange place between the F-150 and the Expedition, how many people need a two-door Expedition sized SUV?

Another potential avenue could be using the World Market Everest truck and sell it alongside the Explorer. It would give Ford a competent rival for the harder hitting Jeep Grand Cherokee and if done well, it could even potentially attack Land Rovers, if the content and capability are there.

What do you think, would you buy a Ford (Bronco) Grand Cherokee?

Makes more sense to build it on the Ranger's platform if they're being built in the same plant.

The best way to look at the Bronco is as Ford's response to the Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Something like the 2015 Toyota FJ Cruiser? That would be amazing! Maybe with a more aggressive bumper but the body shape and 2 door design on the Bronco.

Im not so sure the Michigan plant will be happy with the volume from just ranger and bronco. I would imagine that they might bring some F-150 production over to placate the workers...

Does the F-150 have the same platform as the Ranger?

no but that doesn't mean they can't be produced in the same factory...

Worst time to burst into flames. CarsGuide journalist Peter Barnwell was the one test driving it and I can't wait for his article. :D
