    Ford 'baby Bronco' to be called Maverick?

    Ford 'baby Bronco' to be called Maverick?
    Parts catalog shows components for a 2020 Maverick

    After a wait of three years and counting, the Ford Bronco launch is nearly upon us, rumor saying we'll see the Blue Oval's Jeep Wrangler fighter at the Chicago or New York Auto Shows. Sometime after that, the summer season will welcome the Bronco foal colloquially known as "baby Bronco" for now. A new member on the Bronco6G forum who goes by the handle Ford Parts Guy thinks they discovered the baby Bronco's actual name during a part search in a Ford database: Maverick. The circumstantial evidence comes in a list of eight parts on a spreadsheet for key fobs or fob components for various Ford vehicles; the eight fobs in question are grouped under the heading for a 2020 Maverick.

    Maverick is one of the names Ford applied to trademark in December 2016 for the rugged crossover that will sit on the Escape's C2 platform, just a month before announcing the Bronco's return at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. The company used the Maverick name most recently on the Escape sold from 2001-2005 in Europe, and calling up old names is a popular marketing tactic of late. Ford also sought to protect the names Scout and Bronco Scout, but the automaker abandoned the Bronco Scout application. Filed paperwork also includes the names Bronco Big Bend, Bronco Outer Banks, Bronco Sport, Adrenaline, Badlands, Timberline, and WIldtrak, but it's hard to tell which truck those might apply to and whether they apply to the truck itself or truck accessories. On top of that, Ford Authority has heard from sources that the Bronco Adventurer was also in the running before being dropped for Bronco Sport.

    First Bronco, then Maverick. Which name Ford will bring back from the dead: Fairlane? Falcon? Galaxie? Pinto? Capri? Cougar? Torino? Fairmont? Granada? LTD?

    I've seen and heard, maybe here even, or elsewhere that this was just a code name for the project while under development and not the name of the final product. Who knows, it may well be but I guess we'll all know soon enough.

    Strange considering the leaked reveal of the compact to dealers last year was referred to as Bronco

    Perhaps Maverick is something else coming, maybe the pickup based on Transit?

    That's an interesting angle. I've been thinking about that myself for a couple of days. "What about that upcoming pickup smaller than Ranger" they said was in the works hmmm.

    The Granada was the worst car I've ever driven, a 1987 Dodge Colt a close second. I think they should use the Falcon name again

    Falcon has only been gone a few years

    If you bring it back it had better be a 4 door semi performance RWD sedan or don't bother at all

    I beg to differ.

    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    No one else excited about the more important spy shots of the two door actual Bronco floating around now??? I didn't expect Bronco to aim THAT direct at the Wrangler line.

    *sigh* Meanwhile at GM...

    Same era, same nameplate; two vastly different design philosophies.

    Ford's other Granada was a styling stunner imo.

    Hopefully GM now has a reason to answer Wrangler and Bronco

    I wonder if it's the smaller pick up Ford has been working on

    I wonder if they have to clear Maverick through the "Top Gun" movie.
