People are constantly speculating what the new Ford Bronco is going to look like, and there have been numerous renderings that have shown up online. In the beginning, I myself speculated that the new Ford Bronco would be nothing more than a re-badged Ford Everest. The renderings shown here are a great combination of modern design, and the classic 1966-1977 Ford Bronco style.
When the Bronco was first introduced back in 1966, it was designed to compete with the Jeep CJ-5. In 1969, Chevrolet introduced the Blazer as a fullsize SUV, and began outselling the Bronco. Ford designed a larger Bronco to compete against the Blazer, and planned to introduce it in 1974, but held off until 1978 due to the 1973 fuel crisis. Heck, when Chevrolet introduced the S-10 Blazer in 1982, Ford countered with the Bronco II in 1984.
In the meantime, Jeep pretty much went unchallenged for decades.
I don’t know if the new Bronco will look like these renderings, but I like what I’m seeing. The vehicle is long overdue.
I love the open top, doors, and integrated winch in this rendering.
And how can you offer a new Ford, and not show it in blue?
Although we’re not sure what the new Bronco will look like, we do know what the colors will be:
- Antimatter Blue Metallic
- Cyber Orange Pearl
- Fighter Jet Gray
- Carbonized Gray Metallic
- Oxford White
- Race Red
- Lucid Red Pearl
- Area 51

There is a rumor that the new Bronco will debut at some point later this month (March), so we will hopefully see the real thing in a few weeks!
