Ford Motor Co. teased four exciting upcoming models this week; 2020 Bronco, 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, Explorer ST, and a new small-sized SUV with off-road capabilities. The small off-road sport utility vehicle (Seen above) will give Ford a model to compete against Jeep’s Wrangler and Renegade.
The first look at the upcoming two-door Ford 2020 Bronco doesn’t give you too good of a look at the reincarnation of the classic SUV. However, it does reveal that the new Bronco will be very boxy and upright. There is a spare tire on the back of the beloved SUV that hasn’t been made since 1996. Ford president Jim Farley said the 2020 Bronco will come in two-door and four-door variants.
Ford also shared an image of the sporty Explorer ST variant, which is one of the 12 new Ford Performance vehicles slated to be offered between now and 2020.
Another highly anticipated car that was teased on Thursday is the 2020 Shelby Mustang GT500. The upcoming speed demon is said to be the most powerful Mustang ever, packing 700 horsepower from a supercharged V8. Ford hopes to grow its Performance division’s sales by 71% by 2020.

Ford is also focusing in on making more hybrid vehicles and announced that a “new performance battery electric utility” will arrive in 2020. You will see hybrid versions of the F-150, Mustang, Explorer, Escape, and Bronco in the near future. Ford is so committed to alternative energy vehicles that the company expects to surpass Toyota as the #1 automaker in hybrid vehicle sales by 2021. Let’s hope that Ford gives us more sneak peeks at these and more models at the New York Auto Show that runs from March 30 to April 8, 2018.
