2020 Ford Bronco First Look near Chicago, IL

1969 Ford Bronco Lineup

Broncos Past and Present Meet at Baja 1000

Whether you used to own a classic Ford Bronco or only know about this iconic SUV by reputation, Bill Kay Ford has some exciting news to share. In the spring of 2020, the Bronco will make its long-awaited return to the Ford lineup! Although specifics about its engine lineup, interior accommodations, and even its appearance have yet to be released, our staff is here to fill you in on what we know so far with this first-look preview.

History of the Ford Bronco

Before we cover what the revamped Bronco will feature, let’s take a step back in time and relive the storied history of this unmistakable set of wheels. The model first debuted in 1966, with subsequent generations appearing in 1978, 1980, 1987, and 1992, before the lineup was discontinued in 1996. Throughout its time as a proud member of Ford’s arsenal, the Bronco was prized as the ultimate off-roader, providing exceptional handling and cutting-edge capability when SUVs were still mostly niche vehicles. Ultimately, Ford decided to retire the Bronco nameplate in order to make room for more family-oriented options like the Expedition and Explorer, whose four-door designs were more in line with consumers’ changing tastes.

Return of the Bronco

Ford first announced its intentions to bring the Bronco back to its family of vehicles in 2017. Since then, we’ve learned several details about what it’s expected to bring to the table, including the possibility of removable doors and roof, a return to the two-door design, and elements similar to the Ford Ranger midsize pickup truck. As far as mechanics go, it’s believed that the Bronco will either share the Ranger’s 2.3L EcoBoost® system, which currently makes 270-hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque, or the Edge’s 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 powertrain, which generates 335-hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. Finally, Bronco purists will rejoice when they learn that the SUV is likely to have a body-on-frame chassis. You’ll definitely want to schedule a test drive once it’s here!

Final Details

So far, the clearest glimpse into what the actual Ford Bronco will offer comes from a prototype that competed at the Baja 1000. Photos from the event reveal an off-road version with a tailgate-mounted spare tire, retro design elements, and a bold front grille emblazoned with the model’s nameplate. Currently, Ford is expected to officially reveal the Bronco sometime in the spring of 2020 with production beginning for the 2021 model year. However, we do expect additional details to be released in the coming months.

Hopefully, this 2020 Ford Bronco first look near Chicago, IL, has gotten you excited about this legendary SUV’s triumphant return to the roads. Bill Kay Ford is just as eager as you are for it to arrive, so feel free to contact us with any questions on your mind in the meantime.

We have always bought our vehicles here and only had one bad experience. This experience on Saturday was handsdown the best. My mom at 77 needed a car. ( We went to Chevy dealership the day before. And it sucked). Our salesperson at Kaye just listened carefully about what she needed and how much she could afford. Finance and our salesman totally did it unlike Webb Chevy. She left very satisfied. They let her drive the car twice to be sure it was what she wanted. Even finance was amazing. Thank you again for making this experience a good one.

Bought a new Ford Expedition Max from Bill Kay yesterday. I've bought a number of vehicles from different dealerships and have to rate Bill Kay as the best overall experience I've had. The price I received was very competitive & I was treated extremely well by everyone at the dealership. My initial communication was via email thru customer service, Amanda. Amanda was extremely responsive, followed up frequently, and provided me lots of information before I went to the dealership. My salesperson, Dion, was extremely friendly, helpful & worked with me to get a great deal on the new vehicle and my trade in. Really appreciated Dion's low-pressure style, patience & professionalism as well as helping me unload my trade-in in the cold & drizzle for 30 minutes after buying the new car. All around positive experience & would highly recommend Bill Kay Ford for buying a new vehicle.
