Many people absolutely loved the Ford Raptor and I can agree with the fully. But what these people don’t know it is the fact that this is the last year of the Raptor. It will be replaced by the 2016 Ford Bronco which is probably going to be a much more appreciated car thanks to the heritage that lies behind it. The Bronco is going to feature a wider selection of engines, even a more aggressive look and more usability for people who don’t need a pick-up truck.
Let’s start with the exterior of this brand new model. From the prototype photos Ford showed us so far we can see a car that is closely based on the new Ford F150. The entire front of it is new which means LED and Xenon headlights and also LED tail lights. The car that we saw as a concept offered only two door but reports suggest that we could be getting wagon which can accommodate up to 8 passengers. This should be more than enough for those trips to the mountain with your friends.
2016 Ford Bronco Interior
We expect the interior of the car to be somewhat similar to that of the Ford F series with a few modifications. For example the car will most likely feature leather interior and quite an impressive list of equipment. There will be both climate control and a satellite navigation system as standard which should make the driver’s life much easier and trip much more pleasant.

Performance wise this car will most likely be a monster. The base engine is the 5 liter Coyote V8 in naturally aspirated form. This will provide the driver around 450 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque which should be more than enough for almost anyone. There are also another two engines available. A 4.7 liter diesel V6 which should have around 300 horsepower and more than 500 lb-ft of torque and there will also be a 5.8 liter supercharged V8 with over 650 horsepower. The latter will most likely be available in the rear wheel drive form while all the others will be available with four wheel drive.
Ford Bronco Engine
As we said, the car will be available with either rear wheel drive, which is standard on all models while the four wheel drive system will only be available on the base model and the diesel one. Gearbox wise, there will be a standard 6 speed automatic or a 6 speed manual, both of which should be pretty good if we take a look at the current Raptor.
2016 Ford Bronco Back
One of the things that we could not hear in previous rumors and reports is the info related to EcoBoost units and possibility for those to enter the engine lineup. We are pretty sure that the 2016 Ford Bronco will also come with this type of engines and most likely it will bring both 2.7 liter V6 and larger and more powerful 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost units. This is done to significantly improve the fuel economy of this model.
2016 Ford Bronco Price
In conclusion, the 2016 Ford Bronco is going to be the next super SUV from Ford with a wide range of powerful engines. The base price will be set around the 30.000$ mark while the availability of the car is yet to be announced. We do expect to see it officially presented during the 2015th, most likely during the summer and that it will come to the market before the end of the next year.
