As everyone knows by now Ford will revive the Bronco name with the launch of a new generation in the spring of 2020. The new Bronco is supposed to attack cars like the Jeep Wrangler and will be built on the same platform with the Ranger. The new Bronco will also be a global car, which means we will see both gasoline and diesel engines under the hood, but a lot of rumors also suggest that Ford will also offer a hybrid version for it.
And while enthusiastic customers await the return of the upcoming Ford Bronco 4×4, engineers are hard at work ensuring it is ready to take on the wild. In the high desert of California, Ford experts are busy testing and proving out the all-new Bronco’s powertrain and rugged chassis, which is based on the company’s fully-boxed, body-on-frame global T6 architecture, in an experimental prototype vehicle.
In the Mojave Desert’s Johnson Valley, home to such punishing motorsports series as King of the Hammers, the Bronco prototype is being pushed to its limits off-road in grueling conditions crawling up rocks and racing across sand.
Bronco was built exactly for this.
