Default Ford Confirms Bronco Hybrid

https://www.ford-trucks.com/articles...mpaign=content

Quote:
Ford finally confirms one detail about the reborn 2020 Bronco, but it isnít exactly earth-shattering news.

Weíve known that Ford is bringing back the Bronco in 2020 for, well, what seems like years now. And yet, the Blue Oval just refuses to give us many clues as to what itís actually going to be like. Sure, weíve received a sneak peak at its basic shape. We know that itís going to be built to conquer off-road trails. And we also know that itíll likely pack the same 2.3-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder as its platform mate, the Ranger. But now, we actually have a confirmed tidbit concerning the Bronco to pass along Ė itís for sure going to come in hybrid form as well.

We know this because Ford CEO Jim Hackett said so during the automakerís annual shareholder meeting. And, well, this news shouldnít surprise anyone. After all, Ford is determined to offer a hybrid version of virtually every vehicle they produce going forward. That already includes the all-new 2020 Explorer and Escape, with many more in the works. And of course, Ford is also openly working on building a Mustang-based all-electric SUV. And, as we recently learned, both an F-150 hybrid and all-electric version of their perennial best-seller.

That's not the Ford of Australia way

To be fair to the local FoMoCo team I would bet they would love the petrol hybrid Explorer or the F-150 to be available to sell here however you cannot supply what isn't offered.

So, Bronco drivers will now have to coal-roll other Broncos?

Do people think this will be a better attempt than Toyota's FJ Cruiser that came out about 5 years ago? Retro looking design have maybe lost some of its coolness. VW just killed off its retro beetle.

I did a web search for images or renderings. There are a lot of sketches with round headlights looking a bit like an Escort Mk2, then there are a lot of sketches looking more like a Ranger Raptor, just shorter.
Which one do you think it will be?

Not wanting to sound to blah , but tbh I'm becoming less interested in Fords new model announcements unless it says "coming to Australia"
