One of those legendary sports cars that should return to the market with its major redesign has definitely been the new Ford Thunderbird. Namely, the recent rumors and speculations about this coupe have been really loud so the fans are keenly waiting its great come back as a 2020 Ford Thunderbird model. Although the company hasn’t officially confirmed its arrival, the new Thunderbird should bring some serious changes and updates.
- a possible new transmission,
- more power,
- more spacious interior.
- not officially confirmed yet.
Since there aren’t any official or spy photos of the 2020 Ford Thunderbird, we can only guess what this sports icon should look like. Things shouldn’t change much when it comes to its traditional and recognizable race-inspired design. You will probably see a long and aerodynamic hood and a shorter rear end. According to some rumors, the new Thunderbird should get a longer wheelbase, but when it comes to platform, it hasn’t been certain yet whether this car is going to share its architecture with the Ford Fusion or get a brand-new one. On the other hand, it seems that lots of exterior features will be inspired by the powerful Ford Mustang. You should definitely expect some dynamic and eye-catching styling if the new Thunderbird hits the market in two years time. A new exterior color choice, named Satin Steel Gray, has also been speculated.
As we have already mentioned its possibly longer wheelbase, the 2020 Ford Thunderbird should definitely provide more space inside its sporty cabin. Lots of details will be race-inspired but also combined with some luxurious ones. The carmaker will use high-quality materials such as leather, aluminum and wood. The seats will be comfortable and supportive while the driver’s seat should come as power-adjustable. Besides its overall comfort, other updates are expected in terms of technology and safety. The driver will probably get an 8.4-inch infotainment touch-screen with some of those latest high-tech features such as navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, climate control, premium audio system, Android Auto and Apple Car Play.
More than one engine choice has been speculated to be found under the hood of the 2020 Ford Thunderbird, although none of them has been officially confirmed. The first option could come with either 2.0-liter or 2.3-liter Eco Boost that should hit around 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The other includes a more powerful 2.7-liter or a 3.0-liter V6 with more than 300 horsepower. However, we are waiting for more exact numbers and details at the moment. It hasn’t been certain either whether the upcoming Thunderbird will be paired with a standard nine-speed or it will get a brand-new ten-speed automatic.
