Ford begins production of the revived Bronco SUV in SportMay 21, 2020
The plant of the American brand in Mexico began mass production of the revived SUV Ford Bronco in the Sport version on July 18. On the date of the debut of new items is still unknown.
Production of the Ford Bronco Sport 2021 model year began on Monday, May 18, at the automaker’s factory in Hermosillo Sonora, Mexico. This information came from a document that was intended for Ford employees.
The document states that the production of Bronco Sport will last at the factory in Mexico until July 20. Then there will be a seven-week break, and assembly will resume on September 28.
Oddly enough, it was previously stated that Ford intended to launch production of Bronco Sport in the Mexican factory on September 7th. It is possible that now a batch of prototypes of the new product is being assembled at the brand’s production facilities.
If we assume that the Bronco Sport production models will begin to “roll out” from the automaker’s factory in September, then already in the fall they may well appear in car dealerships. Ford has not yet revealed the date of the official debut of the SUV. Rumor has it that this could happen in June.
Bronco Sport will be built on the basis of the current Escape crossover aka Kuga, and will also use crossover engines. The standard engine is a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder unit with a capacity of 180 horsepower (240 Nm). Customers will be able to order a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 250 hp. (373 Nm). Both will work with an eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive.
