The Ford Bronco has not been on the market since 1990, when it was replaced by the Ford Explorer, but that is not keeping consumers from wishing for bring back the heavy-duty, four-wheel-drive Ford Bronco.

When the Ford F-150 for 2015 was announced, many of the consumers and rumor sites speculated that that could be a truck based on the Ford Bronco.
