Now that the New Year is upon us, the 2016 Ford Bronco has a little over six months remaining for the vehicle to be launched by the American carmaker, Ford Motor Company. Launching the vehicle after July would already make it a 2017 model instead of 2016.
Thus, the pressure is now on Ford, assuming that the 2016 Bronco is a real deal, to finally unveil the long-rumored SUV, which started way back in April 2014.
However, the 2014 rumors appear to have a good leg to stand on since Ford also launched a concept of the newest Bronco back in 2004 during the North American International Motor Show in Detroit, Michigan.
