This isn't the production Ford Bronco, but this Ford Bronco R race truck strongly hints at what we'll see from the forthcoming SUV.

It celebrates the 50th anniversary of the original Bronco's overall win at the 1969 Baja 1000.

Designers had six months to sketch the SUV and bring it to life, and they worked hard to channel the original Bronco that competed in the Baja race.
