What To Expect

The 2025 Ford Bronco may receive the first significant refresh of the current generation, which debuted in 2021. Rumored changes include revised front and rear styling and a new 13.2-inch touchscreen. The Bronco could also gain an available plug-in hybrid powerplant, adding some much-needed efficiency to the line.

We expect the current model range, configurations, and gas engines will carry into the new year. Some trims will likely see minor equipment adjustments. The two-door Bronco seats four and offers up to 52.3 cubic feet of cargo room. Four-door models ride on a longer wheelbase, allowing five-passenger seating and up to 77.6 feet of load space.

The Bronco currently starts with a 12-inch touchscreen, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, and four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case. Buyers can select from numerous options to enhance the Bronco's off-road capability and customize its appearance.

2025 Ford Bronco Engine & Specs

The standard engine for most trims will likely remain Ford's turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder with 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. The 2.3-liter comes with a seven-speed manual transmission or an available 10-speed automatic. The optional 2.7-liter V6 turbo, matched exclusively to the automatic, produces 310 hp and 400 lb-ft. The high-performance Raptor model packs a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 good for 418 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque, along with the automatic transmission.

According to reports, the new Bronco PHEV will be powered by a 2.3-liter turbo and an electric motor, fed by an 18 kWh battery. If it materializes, the PHEV will have an all-electric driving range of about 30 miles. There's no word yet on fuel efficiency, but the PHEV will certainly surpass the gas model's highest EPA rating of 19 miles per gallon combined.

2025 Ford Bronco Safety

Due to its off-road mission, the Bronco carries fewer standard driver-assistance features than other Ford SUVs. We expect all models to come with automatic high beams and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and parking sensors will likely remain optional. Buyers will again have access to adaptive cruise control and surround-view cameras on the higher trims.

The current Bronco earns a five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA. IIHS withholds its top rating due to issues with headlight effectiveness and front-head restraints.

2025 Ford Bronco Price

Gas-powered Broncos may receive a slight price increase associated with the expected fresh, plus the usual annual adjustment. The rumored PHEV powerplant could add a few thousand more to the starting price. The standard Bronco line is currently priced from $41,025 including destination to $71,580. The exclusive Raptor is priced from $91,730.

The Bronco competes with dedicated off-roaders like the Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Defender, and Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro.
