Ford Bronco Sport production start delayed by almost two monthsApril 12, 2020
Ford was supposed to show the smaller of the two planned versions of the revived Bronco SUV at the New York Auto Show this week, but you can forget about it. The fact is that the car dealership was postponed to August due to an outbreak of coronavirus.
Despite the fact that a smaller version of the Ford Bronco SUV was never officially presented, although thanks to images that leaked to the Web, we already have an idea of what the new product will be, which is built on the same platform as the Escape crossover, same KUGA new generation.
According to the reputable foreign publication Automotive News, the Bronco Sport series production has also been delayed due to the current pandemic.
This information was obtained from suppliers of the American automaker. On July 13, Bronco Sport was due to roll off the assembly line at the Ford plant in Hermosillo, Mexico. This plan was canceled – according to available data, the first copies of the new items will be fully delivered on September 7 this year. As always, the automaker declined to comment on the information.
Ford did not announce the official debut date of the Bronco Sport SUV, however, it was previously assumed that the car will appear earlier than the larger Ford Bronco. If the initial plan is implemented, we can expect the presentation of a smaller version of the SUV at the New York Motor Show rescheduled for August of this year, which should be held from August 28 to September 6 – if the situation with the spread of coronavirus improves by then.
As for the larger Ford Bronco SUV, it is expected to be introduced by early 2021. Given the current situation with the pandemic, Ford has enough time to prepare the car’s debut at this time, although we won’t be surprised if these deadlines are eventually postponed.
