    Ford Bronco officially coming back, will be made in Michigan

    [​IMG]© Provided by AOL Inc.You can credit (or blame) Donald Trump for this one. The presidential candidate has been relentless in attacking Ford for moving jobs to Mexico throughout his campaign. Ford has fired back, both with CEO Mark Fields on CNN, and on Twitter during the first debate, citing massive investment and job growth here in the United States. And now, because of this fight, we just got confirmation that the Bronco is coming back. Whether or not it looks at all like the rendering above remains to be seen.

    Ford announced earlier this year that it will add four SUVs to the lineup, and it was widely assumed the Bronco would be one of those four. The theory stems from the latest contractbetween the UAW and Ford, and what happens to the Michigan Assembly Plant when the Focus and C-Max production move south of the border.

    Confirmation comes from Bill Johnson, chairman of UAW local 900, speaking to the Detroit Free Presslast week. "We hate to see the products go to Mexico, but with the Ranger and the Bronco coming to Michigan Assembly that absolutely secures the future for our people a lot more than the Focus does."

    Yes, he did just say that. The Bronco is coming to Michigan Assembly. Which means the Bronco is coming back. This is one thing America can come together on.

    We've known for a while, but they aren't showing their hand at all.

    Saw this the other day. I was really stoked until I realized it's just not practical for me anymore.

    I was comparing all of the bodylines to the old style though. :wub:

    I personally think it will be a 4 door, 2 full size front with 2 small suicide doors rear, but it's just speculation on my part.

    We were actually discussing it at work today, and I think it will probably end up being a SVT vehicle.

    Their SUV lineup is almost too crowded for it not to be with the Expedition, Explorer, Edge, Escape, and EcoSport (coming soon). I have a sneaking suspicion it will join the the Raptor, GT, and GT 350 in the SVT stable.

    All I know is I will be getting one as soon as they hit the lot, if the price isn't just fucking retarded.

    If it is an SVT it be be an incredibly kick ass ride. Part of me wants it to be affordable to the masses, but the other part wants it to be a no holds barred beast.

    I think I've done a couple threads about its return in the past. I seems like I had some lurker tell me I was an idiot and didn't know shit, and that there was 0.0% chance it would return. :jj:

    So, what's the markup like in your neck of the woods for the Focus RS? Been reading some insane stories about 10k or more in different parts of the country.

    I think it will most likely be based on the Ford Everest that's available in most of the rest of the world. It's the only full frame SUV in their stable left other than the Expedition which is just too large.

    The other reason I say that is the Everest and the "new" Ranger are built on the same platform. When the Ranger was confirmed to make its return to the US market, they said there would be a companion SUV based on it to be released the following year (2018). According to our owner Mulally confirmed it would be in some way, shape, or form, Bronco based.

    This is the Everest, keep in mind it will be heavily restyled in Bronco trim:

    I don't pay much attention to the little cars so I don't really know, but a 10k side tag on an SVT isn't uncommon.

    I love the thought of zipping around in a hot hatchback, probably for the same reason @Lemmy had a John Cooper works Mini, wasn't it? I think the Top Gear review was what made me want it, just looked like a fun as hell ride, without breaking the bank.

    Oh I think it would be a blast to drive, but I'd save the cash and buy an ST. : oy:
