It's been nearly a year since Ford revived the Bronco and they have been making noise about it ever since. However, they didn't immediately put the new SUV into production. Thankfully, that's about to change as Ford has finally begun rolling it out.
According to Ford, the all-new Bronco is already on its way to dealerships across North America. They better hurry up those deliveries, too. More than 125,000 Bronco orders have been placed, with a total of more than 190,000 reservations in the U.S. and Canada to date. That means the plant will be working overtime to satisfy the demand.
That got us thinking, though. Does Ford have any plans to export this rugged 4x4? The American automaker isn't mentioning anything about it at the moment, but there is a possibility. After all, there are several U.S-made SUVs Ford exports all over the world. That includes us in the Philippines as we get the Explorer and the Expedition.
So what are the odds of the Bronco coming to the Philippines? To answer that, let's rewind to February. Earlier this year, the CEO of the Autohub Group, Willy Tee Ten, asked for help in deciding what models they should bring in soon. The Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Ford F-150 Raptor, the all-new Ford Explorer, and the Ford Bronco were among the options. His post garnered a fair bit of attention with most saying they want to see the Bronco in local showrooms.
At the very least, Autohub is giving it serious consideration. If this pushes through, it will be interesting if they offer both the three-door and five-door models. Fingers crossed we get an allotment for the Bronco. After all, there is a growing market for recreational off-roaders in the Philippines.
