Ford announced earlier this year that it will add four SUVs to the lineup, and it was widely assumed the Bronco would be one of those four. The theory stems from the latest contract between the UAW and Ford, and what happens to the Michigan Assembly Plant when the Focus and C-Max production move south of the border.
Confirmation comes from Bill Johnson, chairman of UAW local 900, speaking to the Detroit Free Press last week. “We hate to see the products go to Mexico, but with the Ranger and the Bronco coming to Michigan Assembly that absolutely secures the future for our people a lot more than the Focus does.”
Yes, he did just say that. The Bronco is coming to Michigan Assembly. Which means the Bronco is coming back. This is one thing America can come together on.
