How big will the next Ford Bronco be? Here is how it looks on a public road with a Jeep Wrangler and a Toyota T100 next to a prototype. This new Ford Bronco prototype was caught high altitude testing in the Colorado Rocky Mountains by @TheBigKlosowski (twitter). Big thanks to Allen for sending the images to us.
2021 Ford Bronco
We know that the next “midsize” Ford Bronco will share much of its chassis and platform with the Ford Ranger. The prototype you see here appears to have a unique wheelbase, but it’s still using a Ford Ranger front clip and cab underneath the disguise.
We do not have many official details about the upcoming Bronco, but rumors suggest that it will have a squared off style and two and four door versions. There is also a rumor of a specialized Raptor version of the next Bronco, allegedly to compete against the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and the Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro.
If the next Bronco will share the platform with the Ranger pickup truck, then it will also likely share the 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with approximately 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly enough, the current Jeep Wrangler JL can be had with a 2.0-liter turbo gas engine.
Below is a video of a similar prototype that was caught testing in Dearborn, Michigan. It also has a short clip of this test vehicle driving by the camera. Check it out.
