OK... IF it looks like this Ford has be back in the Ford Park again and the Toy I was looking at can wait !

This is only a Road and Track Magazine's thought on what the new Bronco will look like, based on some covered up vehicle, thought to be the new bronco.

I for one think this is by far, the best idea to date, and I am hoping the new 2020 Bronco will  look like it !

My hand is on the phone waiting to call the bank, I want one... please Ford make it like this !

I know there have many pictures of this new Bronco floating around, and yes, not all good but some not too bad, but this one is my favorite and if it does happen Ford will have achieved what only Dodge has done, build a Retro Vehicle that so close to the original but with a little refinement and hopefully a load of electronics.

AND if, as Ford stated a while back, the new Bronco will be starting under $30K, if this is true, Ford could have winner that will out sell any vehicle they have had in the past.

Ford owners, enthusiasts, will have a great looking that hopefully will out performance the Jeep !

I for one can't wait, I need a picture !

Looks exactly like the artist rendering I saw three years ago. The biggest question that Ford hasn't answered is will a 2-door be available? Expect a 4-door, that is what sells. But please make a 2-door version as well Ford!

I have not seen this one before, that is why I posted it, BUT I believe you, there has been so many different ones.

The thing I was really in it for is, "It is the best one I have seen and IF it ever came true, that this IS it, then I am on one for sure !  IF we aren't talking $60K.

But knowing Ford's idea of a RETRO VEHICLE and the prices they put on them, we could be in trouble !

Waiting for the outcome.

You can hope.  MAybe if they do a 2-door.  Might be too big and heavy in a 4-door.

I KNOW FORD WILL NEVER DO WHAT THE OFF-ROAD COMMUNITY WOULD WANT... anyone have a thought on that !

I have seen so many different variations on what the new Bronco will look like, and the above picture is by far my favorite and I am HOPING it will come to to be... but we know that the new Bronco has to fit in Ford's product line AND the only way it will fit is to look like either the new F150 coming out next year, which wouldn't hurt too much, OR the new Ford Ranger, which would SUCK ! (sorry bout that) !

As far as a 2-Dr, I'm not holding out on that one, hoping though.  Ford is thinking along the line of the new 4-Dr Jeeps and they are selling two or three to one to the 2-Dr. The removable top, a nice touch, but I think we will be lucky to get something that looks similar to the old Bronco or even like one of the first photos that are out there.

I am hoping the New Bronco is a true Retro Remake, on the early Bronco, like the picture I posted, but not holding out on it.  When the REAL pictures hit the air waves is when I decide if I will be a new Bronco owner or a new 4-Runner owner. 

My old '03 is showing signs of getting old and I need to update... anyone interested in an E4, '03, 4x, Ranger EDGE, with Std Cab and Steppie Bed ?

Thanks for listening, lets hope Ford comes through !

If I was willing to have a payment I would look at the Ranger. I just turned in a 2019 Frontier I was renting while my truck was in the shop. Nice truck, still don't want a payment...

There have been pictures taken of the new Bronco test mule being tested on the road by Ford, and it looks NOTHING like that rendering. It's all much more rounded and frankly, it looks more like an Explorer to me. Just plain ugly.

https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-cars/future-cars/a31079/new-ford-bronco-ranger-details/

"It'll Be Based on the New Ranger
When Ford announced the Bronco was making a comeback, it also confirmed that the mid-size Ranger would make a return. The 2019 Ranger arrived last January, and we've already driven it.

Back in 2017, Ford global operations president Joe Hinrichs confirmed to Road & Track that the Bronco and the Ranger would share a platform."

http://www.trucktrend.com/future-trucks/1708-spied-2019-ford-ranger-and-2020-ford-bronco-mule/



Myself, I really want ford to bring the Troller here!! A small, solid axle 4x4 is what Ranger owners have been screaming for, for decades now. lol

And it could take some sales away from Jeep in the process.

I do not like that troller, I think it is one ugly looking truck. :( The Bronco pic in the first post by Scrambler looks like the old International Scout.

Bronco test mule spotted



https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a26575780/ford-bronco-prototype-spied/

Don't get to caught up in how it looks, it's a test mule.  Body work can and will change a lot.

That looks like a Ranger with a short, short bed.
WTF is Ford doing ?

I guess I better start looking at 4-Runners and if a good deal pops up I should take it !
