He hopes the introduction of the new SUV will show car enthusiasts the company’s endeavor in refreshing its development process by applying more flexible architectures and boosting parts commonality to release their new products more quickly.
It was revealed by a source of news that the 2020 SUV will emulate much of the classic design of the Bronco back in the 60s.
The North American fans are surely the ones who are longing for the SUV the most when the demand for sedans has been vastly declined in recent years with their interest geared to crossovers. Grasping this change, Ford has also decreased their production of sedans to pay more attention to bringing in new SUVs to the market.
