The brand-new 2024 Ford Bronco Pickup Truck will go into production in a two-year time. The Blue Oval manufacturer clearly plans to create a Bronco family. The lineup will consist of numerous versions of SUVs and pickup trucks. Think of it as a more rugged Ford Ranger. Of course, the brand’s plan for the future could easily change. However, many reliable reports are suggesting a pickup that will be similar to the Ranger mid-size pickup.
It should feature a four-door body configuration with a small bed in the back. Interestingly, Bronco SUV will rival Jeep Wrangler. The same story will continue in the pickup truck segment with a new rivalry between Jeep Gladiator and the new Bronco model. We can expect plenty of similar features and stuff from the SUV variant, including a removable roof.
2024 Bronco Pickup Truck is an Open-Air Pickup Truck
The brand-new 2024 Ford Bronco Pickup Truck will be an off-road pickup truck. It will rival Jeep Gladiator that already offers gasoline and diesel powertrain options. However, just like the Wrangler and Bronco SUVs, both pickup truck variants will offer something else. We are talking about removable doors, windshields, and roof panels. For that reason, we can expect an open-air pickup truck that will mechanically be very similar to the Ford Ranger.
According to various reports, a four-door version will first arrive. Right after that, the customers will get an opportunity to buy a two-door variant as well. Unibody structure is certain, but pickup’s styling is still a mystery. Surely, the pickup won’t depart from its SUV sibling in terms of design, but it is hard to predict anything besides that.
Ford Bronco vs. Jeep Gladiator
As we said, the new 2024 Ford Bronco Pickup Truck will look closer to the Ranger mid-size model. However, Bronco will definitely look more rugged and more aggressive. However, the most important thing is Bronco’s possible rivalry with Jeep Gladiator pickup. Gladiator is already available in the United States. It will arrive for the second time in the coming months, and it will offer its first-ever diesel powertrain. By 2024, Bronco could arrive with some sort of electrification.
For that reason, it is impossible to compare the two models and its performances. Of course, both versions will offer an astonishing off-road ability. Furthermore, both models can be used as “convertible pickup trucks.” Four-door configuration is a must for Bronco, and this pickup will surely focus on practicality and a high level of comfort. However, we can’t see Ford beating Gladiator’s off-road capability.
2024 Ford Bronco Pickup Truck Release Date
At this moment, it may sound like bizarre speculation. In reality, the 2024 Ford Bronco Pickup Truck will surely happen. It is too early to say anything about closer details such as rumored hybrid powertrain. After all, Ford won’t show all of the cars in such an early stage.
The production has not even started yet. On the other hand, Ford will focus on delivering a pickup truck that is something between Bronco SUV and Ranger pickup. The ultimate goal is to deliver a rival for Jeep Gladiator that is slowly taking over the markets in the U.S.
