Auto and off-road enthusiasts alike have been clamoring for the return of the Ford Bronco and Ranger and now it looks like they’re getting their wish. The American automaker officially announced that the two models will return to the United States at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. While there aren’t many details to go on, Ford did provide some information to put the rumors to rest.
The new Ford Bronco and Ranger will both be produced at the Michigan Assembly Plant. The Bronco is expected to arrive in 2020, preceded by the Ranger pickup in 2019. The Ford Ranger is currently sold in markets outside of the United States, making it likely we’ll receive the new generation when it arrives. Both vehicles will ride on a shared body-on-frame platform to create a mid-size truck and SUV.
Ford brought more news to the Detroit Auto Show though. The automaker revealed a refreshed F-150 and gave more details on 13 new vehicles, including a hybrid model of the Mustang pony car.
The brand also renewed its plans to become a mobility company, citing partnerships with ride-sharing services, as well as plans to develop autonomous vehicles.
