The legendary Ford Thunderbird is one of those major novelties that have been recently rumored and anticipated among the fans to hit the market as a 2020 model. Although its arrival hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, it has been speculated that we should expect some serious changes and updates for 2020 Ford Thunderbird in terms of design, technology and safety, but also under the hood.
The Ford will probably make this iconic model even more appealing to the younger population thanks to upgraded and innovative exterior features, leaving at the same time those classic and traditional ones for its faithful fans. The perfect combination of retro and futuristic is what makes the 2020 Ford Thunderbird so unique. It has also been speculated that the chassis of this muscle car should be made of some lightweight materials, which means that you can expect even better acceleration, fuel-efficiency and overall performance. A rumor has it that the new Thunderbird could also get a longer nose with an improved aerodynamics. Such a longer wheelbase can only allow more space inside the cabin, especially legroom. Speaking of the front end, the most distinctive feature will probably be its wide and square mesh grille, but the fans will also notice its thin and modern headlamps that use the latest LED technology. All in all, this sports coupe will come with some great equipment and eye-catching styling, but we hope for more information soon.
If the 2020 Ford Thunderbird actually hits the market, you will also find some upgraded interior details. We are used to its sporty and a bit race-inspired look, but if the recent comparisons to some Lexus models are true, then we can also expect some luxury inside. Due to its longer wheelbase that we have already mentioned, the new Thunderbird will provide more space for you and your passengers. The cabin will be spacious, comfortable and improved, using some high-quality materials, such as leather, aluminum and wood, to cover the seats and other interior parts. When it comes to technology, the center console will probably reveal a larger infotainment touch-screen so you will be able to enjoy features such as navigation system, climate control, sound system, Bluetooth connectivity and Wi-Fi hotspot.
Since the details about the 2020 Ford Thunderbird have been based on rumors and speculations, it means that the engine choices haven’t been officially confirmed either. However, it has been quite possible for this model to get the base 2.0 or 2.3-liter Eco Boost engine and a brand-new nine-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, another possibility that have been considered includes either a 2.7-liter or a 3.0-liter that would deliver more than 300 horsepower. Finally, quite probable option might use a 4.0-liter V8.
