Ford announced that next year we will have the opportunity to see their new SUV mid-size vehicle. It’s Ford Bronco, which represents the return of a well-known vehicle name that was produced from 1965 to 1996. Ford announced the production of this vehicle in the year of 2017 in the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In the following text, we have prepared all the details that interest you on the upcoming 2023 Ford Bronco. Well, if you’re ready, let’s start.
Expectations from the new 2023 Ford Bronco
As for the exterior, the 2023 Ford Bronco is a mid-size Sport Utility Vehicle and will have a length of 190 inches. Since it is designed to fight off-road surfaces, its design is in line with the type of vehicle, so it will be tough. All in all, the new 2023 Ford Bronco will be a four-wheel drive vehicle able to fight with a variety of off-road conditions.
In the interior, two rows of seats are expected, so this vehicle will be able to receive 5 passengers. Split-folding seats will be installed on the rear, which is a very useful feature if you need additional space in your trunk.
The platform on which Ford Bronco 2023 is based, is similar to other Ford models, such as the T6 Ford Ranger produced for the world market, the 2019 Ford Ranger for the United States and Canada, as well as Ford Everest, which is also sold internationally and which appeared in India under the name of Ford Endeavor.
However, although it shares the same platform with some Ford-made vehicles, it does not mean it will be completely similar to the aforementioned vehicles and just be relaunched under a new name. According to Raj Nair, the former Ford technical head, the new 2023 Ford Bronco will be a unique vehicle.
The platform should be body-on-frame, which means it will become the only Sport Utility Vehicle next to the Ford Expedition that uses this platform. It would also be the first vehicle after Ford Explorer which used to use the same platform earlier, but was replaced in 2011 with a unibody construction and it became a crossover utility vehicle. Thus, the platform on the new Ford Bronco will be positioned as the SUV version of the 2019 Ford Ranger.
Production of the 2023 Ford Bronco
The new SUV will be assembled in the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan, in the United States. We earlier mentioned the 2019 Ford Ranger whose production is also taking place in the same factory. Also, the production of the Ford Focus and Ford C-MAX, which also takes place in this plant, will be discontinued, so that the new Ford Focus will be manufactured in the plant in China, and only the Focus Activ model will be produced.
The 2023 Bronco platform will be the same as Ford Everest from 2015 and later, the 2011 Ford Ranger and later, the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor and later, the 2019 Ford Ranger as well as the 2023 Ford Bronco.
As for the drive, the new Bronco will be equipped with a turbocharged engine that will be available in two versions, as a four-cylinder and six-cylinder version. The gearbox will be automatic with 10-speed transmission.
We have to state that the 2023 Bronco will be available in the next trim levels: Bronco, XLT, Limited, Platinum and Bronco Raptor. Unfortunately, there are currently no information about packages and features that will be available.
Competitors and the price of 2023 Ford Bronco
Currently, the main competitors of the new Ford Bronco are similar SUVs on the market. First of all, we mean Jeep Wrangler, Future Chevrolet TrailBlazer and Toyota 4Runner.
As far as his price is concerned, it is expected to be around $ 30,000.
