Ford trademarks ‘Bronco Outer Banks’ for possible use on vehicles


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Someday in the future, you could be driving a ‘Bronco Outer Banks’…to the Outer Banks.

Ford Motor Company has trademarked ‘Bronco Outer Banks’ as a standard character mark according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s filing database.

The move looks to be something that could set up Ford to use the name on its vehicles.

Under the Good and Services entry on the filing, it said the name would be associated with land motor vehicles, namely, passenger automobiles, pick-up trucks and sport utility vehicles.

North Carolina’s Outer Banks area is known for its beach access to vehicles, something that off-road enthusiast thoroughly enjoy.

Ford recently started designing a new line of Broncos after cutting production to the iconic SUV in 1996. The new Ford Bronco is set to debut in 2020.
