Ford Introduces City of Tomorrow as Ranger & Bronco Return

Ford Introduces City of Tomorrow as Ranger & Bronco Return

Both vehicles will be manufactured at Ford's Michigan Assembly Plant.

Fiat Chrysler has also been adjusting production, but while Ford will go ahead with plans to shift Focus to Mexico, the smaller maker recently halted production of its two small, American-made cars, the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart.

Ford had sold the earlier iteration of the Ranger in the U.S.in the 1983 to 2012 model years.

"There's a differentiation in the customer looking for that different size of vehicle [compared to the larger F150], and so we believe there will be an incremental sales boost there for us".

Ford has announced the return of its Bronco badge on one of five new SUVs that will go on sale globally by 2020.

A special black Harman Kardon Edition, which promises superior audio via an additional 2-inch sound cavity, will cost $179. The speaker is also created to work with Lenovo smart home devices, as well as a slew of other third-party gadgets.

O.J. Simpson is up for parole next year, so it seems only fitting that Ford is bringing back the Bronco. "They want a new generation of vehicles that are incredibly capable yet fun to drive". In 1990, the Twin Cities plant turned out 164,000 Rangers and F-series trucks, averaging 900 units per day, according to McMahon. It was built at Ford's Michigan Truck plant in Wayne, Mich. Of course, the decision to return the Ranger to the U.S market is made by the automaker and that means they probably have something in mind for it. The new F-150 arrives with bold new front and rear styling, advanced technologies - including available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection - and improved engines. "Now, we want to work with communities to offer even more transportation choices and solutions for people - for decades to come". It's due to hit showrooms in 2020.

The shuttles, which now operate in San Francisco and Austin, Texas, aim to fill the needs that bus and taxi services can't, and Ford said it will also help reduce traffic congestion.

President-elect Donald Trump is touting decisions by Fiat Chrysler and Ford Motor Co.to expand plants and create new jobs in the US, as the auto industry gathers for its annual show in Detroit.

The 2017 Detroit Auto Show photo galleries are sponsored by Lexus.

At the show, executives from General Motors and Volkswagen said they have no plans to change production plans despite the Trump border tax threat. In 2015, both Bloomberg and The Detroit News reported that Ford's product planning team was considering the two models for a comeback.
