    Here's an interesting article by Chad Kirchner making a case for a Bronco GT Supertruck.

    Realistically, the likelihood of a Bronco GT super truck isn't high, but we think there's lots of merit to the idea of making a high performance model for the 2020 Bronco.

    As Chad points out, people want big cars, as evidenced by current truck and SUV sales figures. Enthusiasts' desire to have a fast and powerful car isn't limited to sports cars. Us folks like to go fast in whatever we may be traveling in. So, we think a Bronco GT would absolutely sell... including non-GT models. It's a fact that halo models help sell the models positioned lower in the lineup. And just the F-150 Raptor has undoubtedly helped general F-150 sales, a Bronco GT/Raptor/Whatchamacallit halo truck would absolutely help promote Bronco sales and image.

    I don't know about a $400,000 Bronco but look I could see them selling every single one if priced $100-200,000. There's already plenty of high end SUVs in the six figure mark - Cayenne Turbo, BMW X5/X6 M, Range Rovers. The demand for silly fast SUV's is clearly out there.

    I give it an A for creativity but if Ford ever decided to build a go fast SUV it would never be badged a Bronco. A higher trim Bronco would be more not less capable off road and a Raptor version is as much as we can hope for. Ford isn't going to be pulling away any G Wagon buyers let's face it. It would greatly outplay its card and fail miserably if it tried.

    Are we assuming the 3.5L Ecoboost from the F-150 wouldn't fit under the hood of a new Bronco? Not sure if I am missing something why it would need to be mounted behind the driver. I'd think the 3.5L would be the perfect candidate for a Raptor Bronco if they ever made one.
