UAW Contract Hints That Ford Bronco and Ranger Could Return to the US Buried in Ford's union contract proposal is mention of future plans to build the compact pickup and long-gone 4x4 at a US facility. The new product investments include a commitment by Ford to bring its Ranger midsize pickup back to America and to revive the storied Bronco nameplate. Both would be built at the Michigan Assembly Plant which will stop making the Ford Focus and C-Max families of vehicles there in 2018.Production of the Bronco is expected to start after the Ranger and no later than 2020, according to a person briefed on the agreement who was not authorized to speak publicly. http://www.roadandtrack.com/new-car...tract-hints-at-future-ford-bronco-and-ranger/ So far they've denied they have any interest in bringing the "Everest" pictured below to the American market, but word on the street and from the reps is the new Bronco will borrow heavily from the Everest pictured below. I've been told it'll be handled by the SVT which gave us the Raptor, Lightning, and other fun Ford products, but unlike the Everest it'll most likely be styled as a 2 door, but will have 2 mini suicide doors sans handles behind the primary doors. Full on pick up architecture will allow for easy mods such as lifts and beefy tire combos which don't work with crossover SUVs. Styling is rumored to be straight out of the new Raptor's play book: The platform's already getting a good workout everywhere but North America, as seen in this youbtube video: Keep in mind it'll be much less tame after the Raptor team gets a hold of it. Supposedly Ford's excellent 2.7L EcoBoost is being tapped as the power plant of choice for the US market.
