However, what may appear to be a new pickup testing near Ford's Detroit headquarters is actually a cleverly disguised test mule for something entirely different. What we're looking at is a test mule for the revived Bronco coming in 2020 as a 2021 model. Giveaways are the flared wheel arches, generous ride height, 6-lug wheels, and chunky all-terrain tires. In other words, a serious off-roader. You've also got very...

Under the hood is the same 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 found in the Golf R, with output registering at 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It's mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive system and will see the T-Roc R sprint to 62 mph in only 4.9...
