Ford finally unveiled the Bronco Family of three, new off-road SUVs on Monday, resuscitating the Bronco nameplate after more than 20 years in the wilderness via a series of videos. Here’s how Greg Migliore, editor-in-chief of Autoblog, described it to us: “It was genuinely an exciting moment for Ford, for enthusiasts and for the auto industry. I think almost everybody I know who is into cars, trucks, vehicles of any sort was excited about the Bronco last night. You don’t always see that.”

We speak with Migliore about the reimagined Bronco’s nifty new features, how it stacks up against the venerable Jeep Wrangler and more.

We also hear from Dave Battagello, the veteran Windsor Star reporter, on how people on the other side of the river are receiving the news of the death of Ambassador Bridge owner Manuel “Matty” Moroun, what’s going on with his former company’s efforts to build a twin span and the latest on the Gordie Howe International Bridge. He also tells us about how the coronavirus has affected Windsor.

Also, we have updated coronavirus numbers from the state of Michigan, plus news about a possible lawsuit by the Warren City Council against Mayor Jim Fouts over alleged unilateral changes to an approved budget. We also tell you about Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan’s proposed $250 million home-demolition bond, and the cancellation of this year’s Tour de Troit (though you can sign up for a virtual ride).
