2020 Ford Bronco

Ford isn’t quite ready to take the wraps off its forthcoming Bronco just yet, but the company issued this teaser photo that reveals a rugged-looking boxy profile, a high-riding stance, and what looks like a rear-mounted spare tire.

Ford Motor Company today unveiled its plans to replace more than 75 percent of its model lineup by 2020, and is aiming to have the “freshest” product roster in the North American market by that time. The manufacturer will focus heavily on trucks, SUVs, and hybrid vehicles in the next 24 months. More pure-electric vehicles are slated to follow starting in 2020, with six battery electric vehicles (BEVs) planned for introduction by 2022.

New Car Colors

Check out our gallery of the most eye-catching colors at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.

There’s no better place than an auto show to see a broad range of brand-new vehicles up close, and there’s also no better place to check out the latest trends in factory paint-color offerings. One of our Chicago Auto Show traditions is to scour the show floor on the hunt for interesting new or recently introduced colors—“double-take” hues that are more eye-catching that the usual whites, silvers, blacks, and grays (and, for that matter, straightforward fire-engine reds).

2018 Detroit Auto Show, NAIASDETROIT—Hyundai took the wraps off a redesigned version of its unconventional compact sporty hatchback at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Hyundai is also using the new Veloster as the inaugural vehicle of a planned “N” lineup of high-performance Hyundais.
