Are We Looking At The Upcoming 2020 Ford Bronco?

Ford earlier said that the Ford Bronco would arrive in 2020 and the new Ranger a year before that. And though we’re all excited on what could possibly be in store for us in the next two years, no details have been released and we’re left to imagine how the Bronco would look like.

You can’t really blame car enthusiasts because this is the first time Ford is diving into the new midsize trucks competition. The Bronco will give the Chevrolet Colorado, the Toyota Tacoma, and the Jeep Wrangler a run for their money… and yet, that’s not until 2020.

We kept on thinking how the new Bronco would like. Would it be similar to the concept Ford showed off in 2004 or how about the Brazilian-market Ford Troller, which has a boxy and utilitarian off-road look? Then again, there’s the Ranger-based Everest, a family-friendly SUV.

The spy photos shown here look like a warmed-over, right-handed Everest, which is why a lot of Bronco enthusiasts are scared that it is what exactly we might be getting in 2020. Raj Nair, Ford’s chief technical officer, was quick to clarify these reports. Back in January, he told Autoline that Ford does not plan to make the Bronco similar to the Everest.

The new Bronco will be completely “unique” from the Everest, he said. The front end was covered in checkered camouflage, so we’re thinking Ford doesn’t want us to see something new on the front. But since most of the SUV is undisguised, we’re sure the production model would look very different.

For now, as mentioned by an “inside source” a few months ago, we can assume that the new Bronco would look similar to Brazil’s Troller, albeit the former will be a four-door version. Although we would love to see a two-door Bronco, there’s not much market for a two-door midsize SUV, so we’ll be contented with a four-door version if that’s what it takes.

Top 3 Features Of The 2018 BMW M5 Sedan’s New Powerful Engine

German automaker BMW finally unleashed its 2018 BMW M5 in all its glory. Though looking very similar to the regular 5 Series, it now has larger grilles, trademark vents in the fenders, an aggressive rear valance with a faux diffuser.

Once you enter the car, you’ll find the same luxurious BMW setup—special-power heated sport seats with illuminated M5 logos and two bright red M buttons on the steering wheel.

If you want to be wowed by the new M5, you’ll have to pop open the hood. Underneath, you’ll find a plethora of amazing specifications.

1. Produces 600 Horsepower

The 2018 BMW M5 will have the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 engine, but it can now produce 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, an increase of 40 horsepower and 53 pound-feet of torque from the previous generation (that’s not counting the fact that a limited edition producing 600 horsepower was also released).

2. Paired with a Unique All-Wheel Drive System

Impressed with the power and torque? That was paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system, which was a first for an M5. Don’t fret, the unique system will also allow the M5 to function on purely a rear-wheel-drive setup, one of the car’s three driving modes.

The all-wheel-drive system will keep the stability control from intervening in the driving mode. It will instead provide more traction and control from the first drive. And thanks to the unique system, the car will also be able to hit 60 mph from 0 mph in just 3.2 seconds. The top speed is 189 mph when paired with the M Driver’s Package. Without it, it can still go to 155 mph.

3. Improved Handling Experience

The 5 Series traditionally has the double-wishbone front setup and the multi-link rear suspension. This has been revamped on the 2018 M5. There are now firmer anti-roll bars and loads of chassis bracing. It also boasts of 19-inch wheels, which count for the wider track.
