Ford has huge plans for the upcoming Bronco SUV. The 2020 Ford Bronco will look to rival Jeep Wrangler in every possible way. In order to accomplish that challenge, Blue Oval carmaker need to deliver everything in line with the Wrangler model. And even more. One of the main goals is to offer a serious off-roader like the Wrangler actually is. For that reason, Ford will most likely offer both two and four-door models of Bronco.
And while the 2019 Ford Ranger is the most anticipated model for the next year, Bronco owns 2020, no doubt about it. Blue Oval promises to provide the same level of off-roading as the last Bronco from the previous century. Moreover, Bronco will arrive in all possible variants, diesel, hybrid, Raptor, anything you can imagine. The last category is the battle between the two-door and four-door rumors. Sure, four-door Bronco is certain, the question mark stands above the two-door model.
2-door vs 4-door Bronco
For real, it is one of the big questions about the 2020 Ford Bronco. Will the utility vehicle arrives as a two-door or a four-door model? Will Ford offer only both body configurations, or only one? In the past, two-door Bronco played a huge part in the world of off-road SUVs. The Bronco’s identity was a shorter wheelbase and two-door body style. So, what we know about the two different setups? Typically, two-door models are more expensive to insure. The main reason is that those models are classified as sports models.
The insurance companies are saying the sports cars and SUVs are more likely to be in an accident. Or even stolen. Two-door Bronco will be lighter and it will offer better handling and better performance. On the other hand, four-door Bronco acts better on the roads than off the roads. Moreover, better for cargo carrying than the two-door models. The same situation is with the Bronco’s biggest rival, Jeep Wrangler. If you are looking for a family vehicle, opt for the four-door Wrangler. If you are a fan of off-road adventures, the two-door model is for you.
Will We See a Two-Door Bronco?
Although there are no words about this topic, we can take some clues from Ford’s history. We already mentioned the Bronco’s identity in the past was a shorter wheelbase and two-door body style. Literally, every carmaker that revives the iconic old-school model is offering the same variant as in the past.
We know, in modern days there is simply no room for experiments or uniqueness from the past. However, Blue Oval is a well-known carmaker that likes to stick to the tradition. For now, the 2020 Ford Bronco is coming in a more passenger-friendly variant with the four doors. But Ford experts are 100 percent sure that the two-door body style will become available in the near future as well.
2020 Ford Bronco Competition
We can talk about the numerous Bronco’s rivals. The four-door version will compete with the Toyota 4Runner, Land Rover Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz G-Class etc. However, there is only one real competitor and it is the Jeep Wrangler. In order to deliver a competitive vehicle, Blue Oval must deliver a two-door version.
According to American automaker, the 2020 Ford Bronco will be a complete package that will beat the competition with ease. If that’s the goal, then a two-door variant is a must. It is not just about delivering rugged SUV to the markets, it needs to be capable as well. And the Bronco is exactly that. We are convinced the two-door Bronco will appear at some point in 2020.
