Ford Might Be Working On a New Bronco Pickup Truck

Ford Might Be Working On a New Bronco Pickup Truck Rumor has it that a Bronco pickup could arrive a few years after the new Bronco SUV debuts. The upcoming Ford Bronco's reason for being is to compete with the Jeep Wrangler. Ford apparently has its sights on the Wrangler-based Gladiator pickup, too, because according to a new rumor, the Blue Oval is planning on building a Bronco-based pickup truck to go head-to-head with Jeep's midsize truck. Shown above, a speculative rendering of what the new Bronco SUV might look like, from the fan site Bronco6G.com.

Today, my friends, is World Emoji Day. On this joyous day, emojiphiles from around the globe come together to give thanks for the overwhelming bounty of little cartoon drawings the technology gods have bestowed upon modern society. Or something.

In any case, Ford is getting in on the World Emoji Day action with this: a blue truck. The current bank of nearly 3,000 emojis doesn't include a proper pickup, and Ford is aiming to change that. It seems silly, I guess. But on the other hand, have you ever stopped to count how many weird, useless emojis there are? (I have.) I could at least see maybe using the truck now and then.

Automobile first reported on this model's development citing information from industry research firm AutoForecast Solutions. The Bronco pickup would allegedly have a four-door body with a small bed in the back.

"When customers started demanding a truck emoji" -- wait, really? -- "we knew we had to help make it happen," Joe Hinrichs, Ford's president of automotive, said in a statement Wednesday. The company put together a weirdly overdone promotional reveal video for the truck emoji, which you can watch above. Interestingly, the generic truck emoji doesn't have any Ford branding, which is probably a good thing, lest this alienate owners of Chevrolets, GMCs, Rams or other trucks.

Ford originally submitted a proposal for the truck emoji to the Unicode Consortium in 2018. Now, the pickup has allegedly been short-listed as a candidate for a future round of new emojis. We'll have to wait until early 2020 to see if the truck emoji is actually approved.
