For almost anything, popularity grows and wanes over the years. This was true for both the Ford Bronco and Ranger, and, as their popularity dropped, their production was eventually cut. However, fans have been clamoring for their return and Ford has officially announced that both will be making a comeback.
From 1987 through 2004, the Ranger was the best-selling compact truck in the United States, and now the Ford Ranger will be reintroduced as part of the 2019 model year lineup. Ford will announce more details as we get closer to its release date, but we do know it will be produced at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan.
As for the Bronco, it will be included in the 2020 global Ford lineup. From 1966 through 1996, the Bronco was loved for its adventurous spirit and capabilities.
“We’ve heard our customers loud and clear. They want a new generation of vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of The Americas. “Bronco will be a no-compromise mid-size 4×4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city.”
