PEKIN, Ill., – In the midst of the North American International Auto Show comes multiple exciting news announcements from Ford Motor Company. We learned of the revival of two popular Ford vehicles and were introduced to Ford's "City of Tomorrow." It also appears that the Ford-owned ride sharing app, Chariot, will continue to grow during 2017. We're happy to report on the big news for Ford Motor company, and are excited to see what the next few years have in store!

The Ford Bronco fell off the map in the late nineties and has been rumored for a revamp in the past few years. With little details to share, we can officially confirm, the Ford Bronco will be back in 2020! It was introduced at the auto show as "a no-compromise midsize 4x4 utility for the thrill-seekers who want freedom and off-road functionality, with the space and versatility of an SUV."

Another sorely missed Ford vehicle will make its return in 2019, the Ford Ranger will be back on the market! This midsize truck promises affordability, functionality, and maneuverability for drivers.

Ride sharing applications have been on the rise in cities across the world. Ford announced that their Chariot app will continue to expand this year. It is already available in San Francisco and Austin, Texas, and is expected to reach 8 more cities in 2017.

Probably the biggest and most exciting news from Ford this week has been the introduction of Ford's "City of Tomorrow." In an attempt to address the growing concerns of mobility across the globe, Ford City Solutions team is working to combat challenges seen in urban settings. This includes solutions for things like gridlock and air pollution, utilizing green space and fully autonomous vehicles. This very futuristic seeming concept plan is not so far off, as Ford expects to introduce autonomous vehicles by 2021.
