New Trademark Filing Suggests Development of New “Baby Bronco”

2020 Ford Bronco | Tropical Ford Blog | Orlando, FL

Recently, car enthusiasts of all varieties have been increasingly excited over the return of the legendary Ford Bronco in the form of the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco. For 30 years, the Bronco was one of the world’s leading 4×4 SUVs, boasting now-classic styling and incredible capability. And now Bronco fans have even more to get revved up about, as a new trademark request filed by Ford might suggest the coming of a new “Baby Bronco” called the Ford Bronco Scout.

Ford recently filed to trademark the “Scout” and “Bronco Scout” nameplates. And while it’s not unheard of for auto brands to apply for trademarks simply to have rights to them, it makes a lot of sense to speculate that a reveal might be close at hand for the Bronco Scout.

With reports that Ford will soon release a smaller crossover styled after the all-new Bronco being dubbed the “Baby Bronco,” it seems likely that the “Bronco Scout” nameplate could be used to designate just such a vehicle. After all, the Scout name is unmistakably reminiscent of the International Harvester Scout, another 4×4 smiler to the original Ford Bronco. For now, though, we’ll have to content ourselves with the coming release of the all-new 2020 Ford Bronco while keeping an ear to the ground for what’s to come next.

Ford has never faltered in delivering on its commitment to American workers, providing good jobs to hard-working folks from sea to shining sea. To this end, the manufacturer recently kicked off Ford Ranger production at its assembly plant in Wayne, Michigan.

This newest round of Ford Ranger production marks an $850-million investment by Ford in the 3,000-strong Michigan Assembly Plant. These 3,000 workers are feeling very merry indeed this Christmas season thanks to Ford’s production move. Ford transitioned from production of the Focus at the Michigan Assembly Plant to open availability for production of the 2019 Ford Focus.

The investment doesn’t end with the Ford Ranger, however. Starting in 2020, Ford will also produce the Bronco once more at the Michigan Assembly Plant.

All of us here at Tropical Ford are looking forward to the return of the Ford Ranger. The 2019 model promises to be a game-changer. It features a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission system, best-in-class payload, integrated Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, plus amongst other safety technologies.

New Ford Bronco Inspired by Brazil’s Troller

New Ford Bronco - Tropical Ford BlogOff-roading enthusiasts and SUV fans are on the edge of their seats awaiting the arrival of the new Ford Bronco. The long-awaited SUV is slated for launch in 2020, but some details are already slipping to the public. For example, the new Ford Bronco will be more like the Troller out of Brazil than the F-150 Raptor.

Most American drivers aren’t familiar with Brazil’s Troller. All you really need to know is that the SUV is off-road capable and offers an excellent utility-driven design. The Ford Bronco, however, will be offered as a four-door SUV rather than a two-door model like the Troller.

The Bronco will offer a standard 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine designed to offer performance and efficiency. Don’t fret, off-roaders. The 2021 Ford Bronco will feature capability beyond measure.

“Bronco will be a no-compromise midsize 4×4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city,” Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, said in January.

While Ford has yet to comment on the leaks, the company did confirm that the SUV will be based on the Ranger pickup truck. Even so, it gives Bronco fans more to look forward to as 2020 creeps closer with each passing day.

We here at Tropical Ford can’t wait to see the new Ford Bronco make its public debut!

New Ford Bronco Confirmed

The Ford Bronco is somewhat of a large icon but it has become harder and harder to find since it left the lineup. Now, nearly 20 years later, the monstrous vehicle is returning to the market. Likely boasting impressive off-road specifications and capabilities, the Bronco will join a lineup already full of capability on- and off-road. As for how capable the Bronco will be is yet to be seen, but with Ford’s engineers hard at work, it’s likely to be a doozy.

The new Ford Bronco will launch as a two-door model with a four-door version coming later. That’s not too surprising considering many automaker’s most popular vehicles fall into the truck and SUV category. Crossovers are popular as well but conventional cars are seeing their sales dip slowly.

The Bronco may boast the design shown as a concept vehicle, the Ford Atlas, not long ago. Known as a rough, tough, off-road-ready machine, the Bronco will likely play host to some impressive specifications. Identifiable by its ride height, massive tires, and powerful engine, this 4×4 will likely go tire-to-tire with the likes of the Jeep Wrangler.

Off-roaders, start your engines! The Ford Bronco is back.

We here at Tropical Ford and pumped for the return of the Ford Bronco!
