The more likely explanation would be that Dearborn wants to fulfill delayed orders in the United States first. After all, we can’t imagine waiting customers would be too happy if units were shipped abroad and not delivered here first. But there is a possibility that Ford is delaying the European introduction to accommodate a potential facelift or update.
Production of the Bronco kicked off more than a year ago and, by the time it arrives abroad, Ford will have likely planned a trip to the automotive plastic surgeon. Speculation aside, Ford of Europe’s Matthias Tonn is excited about the off-roader’s arrival. “Following the huge success of the new Bronco in the US, we are thrilled to be bringing some of the spirit of adventure to our customers in Europe.”
Our continental contemporaries will only be able to select the four-door model but will receive the same extensive array of accessories available in America. Adventure-minded extras such as roof tents and light bars will be made available.
