This rendering for the reborn Ford Bronco demands your attention

A quick glance at these images and you’re feeling things you never thought you’d feel about a Bronco, I know.

Sure, maybe the original from the 1960’s had that timeless boxy look and the 90’s version rocked high school parking lots everywhere, but if this rendering from Bronco6G.com is any indicator of what’s coming with the reborn Bronco in 2020, you may have a new 4×4 fantasy.

We’ve had years of teasers and vague concepts from Ford, but recent news suggests the automaker is preparing its Wayne, Michigan truck factory for the utility vehicle’s production. The Bronco fan forum is getting a bit antsy to see what Ford is cooking up, so they went ahead and designed their own vision of the next-generation model. And hot damn does it look fine.

“For our Bronco concept, we fused styling elements from previous Bronco generations, the 2004 Bronco concept, and modern Ford trucks and SUVs,” Bronco6G.com administrator Tom told Road & Track in an email. “You can see the classic round headlights and square inset front grille evolved from the 1st-gen Bronco, which was also showcased in the retro-futuristic 2004 Bronco concept.”

“Our concept features a modern body-on-frame next-generation Bronco that retains a tall, boxy, tough, no-frills design with a strong focus on utility and off-road capabilities. We fitted separate versions with different grilles, wheel fender shapes, varying ride heights, and cargo rack for some different looks,” Tom said.

You might call the site’s members experts on the sixth-generation Bronco (it’s in their name), but ultimately, Ford has yet to confirm the Bronco nameplate will revive on a set date. Still, Bronco6G.com claims their sources point to production in the next few years, with the vehicle targeting Jeep’s next-generation Wrangler.

When all we had to sculpt our imaginations was Ford’s 2004 concept, it was hard to get overly excited about the redesigned truck, but now we must urge Ford to hire the masterminds behinds these works of art and get to work!
