2016 Ford Bronco is possibly just a myth, but anyway it is still a topic worth of discussion and after the joke that was posted on Gerheads.org a lot of people asked what’s stopping Ford from releasing the new Bronco. Its concept became history long time ago, since the large SUVs with body on frame construction are becoming unibody crossovers one by one. New Broncco if the company actually decides to launch it one day might come as a crossover as well. One way or another this SUV will be launched one way or another and that might happen earlier than we thought.
2016 Ford Bronco Concept
Since the old models of this vehicle were based on the Ford F150, new Bronco might also come with the same platform as the world’s most popular pickup truck. Since F150 went through a large update one year ago, next model year will be perfect for a new Bronco launch.
It would come with numerous aluminum inserts like its F Series cousin and also with futuristic steel-aluminum frame. If the company decides to launch a new Bronco with all these innovations it will be the lightest classic SUV on the market. This will also improve its fuel consumption, and F150’s front fascia would be the basic for making this vehicle’s exterior design.
Interior of new Bronco
When it comes to interior 2016 Ford Bronco will come with numerous new features and a very elegant interior design. Same as its F cousin it will come in numerous trim levels which will go from regular cloth upholstery and manually opening windows to some of the luxurious features that are provided with King’s Ranch trim level that comes with 3D navigation, SYNC 2 telematics, MyFord Touch infotainment system and 8 inch touch screen display. The most luxurious trim level would also come with premium leather upholstery, three zone climate control and heated and ventilated seats.
When it comes to performance we still don’t know what to expect, but if ford decides for Bronco to follow today’s SUV and pickup truck performance trends it would definitely come with naturally aspired V6 engine with 3,6 liter dispersion in the base version. This is not going to be the only option since we expect new model to come with at least two turbocharged EcoBoost options, probably 2,7 and 3,5 liter units. Highest trim level will come with 5,0 liter V8 that will come with at least 400 horsepower and the same amount of pound feet of torque.
2016 Ford Bronco price
2016 Ford Bronco is not even a concept yet so we can’t give you the exact price figures. We know that new model is not going to be cheaper than $30,000 and its price is probably not going to be higher than $40,000 at least for the base version, some luxurious trim levels might even cost more than $50,000.
Release date is another big mystery, but if Ford would release this vehicle for 2016 model year, they will need to present it on one of the bigger American Auto Shows in next few months and it would arrive in the showrooms during the fall of 2015.
