    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.

    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.

    I hope they bring them both back. The Bronco started as a minimalist utility vehicle. I hope they don't go too far overboard with features and amenities.

    a retro bronco would really be tits. but anything awesome would be appreciated. i'd love to size down from the expedition without going to an explorer, which is now more of a station wagon. :(

    I had a couple of Explorers. They got larger each generation to where the Escape was about the size of the original Explorer. Then they fucked them all up by going Unibody.

    If it's built by SVT it'll be the most capable and powerful Bronco ever built, but it will not be cheap or minimalist.

    It's not nearly as small now. That's really what got it the axe in our market, they didn't want it poaching sales from the highly profitable F150.
