Throw that beautiful new Ford Bronco on the list of things that have officially been canceled by Coronavirus this year. And at this point, we’re not even sure when we’re going to get to see it.
According to The Drive, the new Ford Bronco will not be hitting the road at all this year due to delays in production.
“We’re not going to do any additional delay to these launches beyond the impact of Covid-19 as a mechanism to conserve cash,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s head of product development and purchasing, during a conference Friday. “Given our inability to work in the assembly plants during the shelter-in-place restrictions, it will have an impact to program timing, in terms of the launches. But we expect the launch delays to be commensurate with the duration of the shutdown period.”
Many of their models, including the F-150, the Bronco Sport, and the Mustang Mach-E, are more than 2 months behind. Although there may be some good news.
According to the Road Show, Ford IS planning on debuting the new model this spring, whether it be in person or virtually, is yet to be determined.
Images of the highly-anticipated new Bronco were leaked a couple months ago.
