Ford Bronco 2024 will be the fourth year of production for the revived generation. It looks like they are already planning a mid-cycle refresh. The Blue Oval Company is looking to continue the trend of frequent updates and make this SUV more appealing. The upcoming updates will be mainly in the aesthetics department, but a longer list of standard features is also possible.
The layout will remain the same, so we can expect to see all the pros and cons that the Wrangler has. You can expect a great off-roader with surprisingly good on-road manners. The cabin is also very nice and has a lot of technology and convenient features. Its passenger and cargo spaces are generous.
2024 Ford Bronco Redesign
We could see a mid-cycle refresh in the coming year, bringing mainly aesthetic changes. Details are not available at this time, but we assume we will see some minor changes to the front and other areas. We assume we will see new headlights and grilles. We would also expect new colors, new wheels, and perhaps a special appearance package. The next-year model would be available in the same two body styles as the current one, either a 2-door or 4-door SUV.
The mechanical aspect will not change. Even the basic version will have independent front and rear suspensions, as well as at least 8.3 inches of ground clearance. You can also upgrade to locking differentials, all-terrain and oversized mud tires, bumpers with winch compatibility, intake snorkels, and bumpers with winch-ready bumpers.
There aren’t likely to be any major changes on the interior, but there is a chance that we will see new color schemes. The overall layout of the cabin will be the same with a rugged dashboard and durable materials. The 2-door model has a relatively small second row but is still quite practical thanks to its 22.4 cubic foot cargo space behind the rear seats, and 52.3 cubic feet when these seats are folded. This is more than the two-door Wrangler which only offers 34 cubic feet.
The cargo space is very spacious, and the four-door model can accommodate passengers in the second row easily. The space behind the rear seats is 35.6 cubic feet and there are 77.6 total cubic feet.
Tech and Safety Features
This is also a possible area for innovation, but remember that the current model does a pretty good job in this regard. Base models include an 8″ touch screen, Bluetooth, Bluetooth with four USB ports, and an analog speedometer. They also come with a 7-speaker stereo with HD Radio. Upgrades include a 12-inch touchscreen, navigation, a 10-speaker audio system, wireless device charging, and auxiliary switches. There are also two USB ports and a 120-volt power outlet.
The current model is equipped with several safety features, including a rearview cam, automatic emergency brakes, automatic high-beam headlights, rear seat alerts, etc. Upgrades include parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, lane departure warnings, lane keep assist, surround-view cameras, and more.
There shouldn’t be any major changes to the engine, so we can expect three familiar options. The base models will still have a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that produces around 300 horsepower. There is also an optional 2.7 liter V6 that produces about 330 horsepower. The 3.0 liter V6 is the highest-end option, reserved for Bronco Raptor. This engine produces around 418 horsepower.
All three engines are available with an automatic transmission with 10 speeds, whereas the turbo-four base engine is also offered with a manual gearbox with 7 speeds. All models come with four-wheel drive as standard.
2024 Ford Bronco Price & Release Date
We assume that, due to the possibility of an update, the 2024 Ford Bronco will arrive a bit earlier than normal, but still in the second half. The price of the current model is around $33.000 for the two-door model and $37.000 for the four-door model. We don’t think that next year’s version will be more expensive.
