    Rumorpile: Ford Australia Handling Development of Bronco


    • Ford's Australia office will take on the work of the Bronco

    It is no secret that Ford is working on new Bronco that will go into production at Ford's Michigan Assembly alongside the Ranger in the coming years. But it seems that Ford's American branch will not be doing a majority of the engineering work.

    Motoring has learned from sources that Ford's Asia-Pacific Product Development team based in Victoria will be handing the development of the Bronco. This is because the Bronco will be using an updated version of the Ranger's T6 ladder platform - a platform that the Asia-Pacific Product Development team designed and developed.

    The Bronco is expected to use a shortened version of the T6 platform and share the running gear from the Ranger - four and five-cylinder diesel engines paired with manual and automatic transmissions. Expect a gas engine for the U.S.-spec Bronco.

    Production of the Bronco is expected to being in 2020.

    Very Cool :metal: 

    Good that they are using the team that designed the original platform to build the new Bronco. I am very excited by this and look forward to seeing what they do with it.
