The Ford Bronco — A Legend Returns

Like the hero in an old western movie, the reputation of the Ford Bronco precedes itself. The highly anticipated re-release of this American classic will be in the Tri-County Ford showroom right here in Buckner, KY sometime in the late 2020. And if you're considering a new SUV in the new year, this returning legend might just make it on next year's holiday wish list.

Ever since Ford announced the imminent return of the Bronco at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, we’ve gotten a lot of questions from our customers and had fun conversations with many of you speculating on what Ford might be planning. To say that there’s been a buzz here at Tri-County Ford is an understatement.

In all that time, Ford has been very tight-lipped and hasn’t released anything official on the new Ford Bronco that will make its appearance in our showroom in just a short while. That is until they debuted the Ford Bronco R Race Prototype in the desert in November 2019.

Ford has confirmed that the racing prototype has a similar body style as the production model, will be built on a modified T6 frame, and that they have been making the off-roading capabilities of the production model a top priority.

The silhouette of the Ford Bronco R Race Prototype has a front end that is reminiscent of the first-generation Bronco, which Ford confirms is the inspiration for the production model. The rest of the profile appears to be leaning modern, but with the boxy back end that Bronco fans expect.

The most exciting thing about the debut was the footage of the prototype’s driver demonstrating its off-road performance capabilities by cutting tracks through the desert terrain. While we know the showroom model might not have the same off-roading chops as the prototype, the possibilities for weekend adventures are exciting.

Although we can’t confirm any rumors or speculation, we’re just as excited about the upcoming Ford Bronco as you are. While we wait, we’d love it if you’d stop by our showroom and test drive the 2020 Ford Ranger, 2020 Ford F-150, or 2020 Ford Super Duty. We here at Tri-County Ford have been speculating how the Ford Bronco will compare to our latest Ford pickup trucks and SUV, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy the ride when it arrives at our dealership near Louisville, KY next year.
