    First (Actual) 2021 Bronco U725 Prototype SPIED!!

    Outdoorsy stuff. They market the Escape as "the ultimate go anywhere do anything vehicle" ... so I wouldn't read too much into the icons or marketing language.

    Bronco to debut in April prior to NYIAS-Ford Authority

    That seems like an odd pair of things to say, since we have plenty of clues to tell us the baby will be built and sold first already (Oct job 1, further along in development, etc.), the natural conclusion would have been it would also be revealed first -- if it wasn't for the name and potential...

    Bronco to debut in April prior to NYIAS-Ford Authority

    It will be interesting to see where Ford decides to let Bronco get "spied" at between now and then. The parts of the country that aren't buried in snow or sopping with mud will be rather limited. I wouldn't be surprised if a poorly disguised 66 takes a tour along Route 66 shortly before the...

    Visual estimate of 2021 Bronco wheelbase and size (112 inch wheelbase guesstimate)

    If you shovel enough money around I'm sure someone will build a 2-door suv from an F750 too. Hopefully Bronco sales will take off like a rocket and Ford won't be able to come up with new Bronco'ed variants of its tucks fast enough. :champagne:

    Baby Bronco v Body on Frame

    By a few minutes or seconds maybe. Because the classic Bronco nameplate is expected to be used on multiple vehicles the baby can't be launched first (would create unncessary and unwelcome confusion), even though the baby is farther along in the development cycle and expected to be built and...

    Bronco to debut in April prior to NYIAS-Ford Authority

    According to sources familiar with the matter, The Blue Oval is planning to hold the worldwide premier of the 2021 Ford Bronco in April 2020 at the 2020 New York International Auto Show. An exact date has yet to be finalized, but sources indicated that April 7th and 8th are currently in the...

    [Unofficial] Production Bronco Renders based on Bronco R

    Me too, but there are plenty of indications that the spare will be exterior mounted and there doesn't appear to be any additional space or external mechanism to carry the load like the old ones. That translates to a door mounted spare, and for reasons others explained above that big heavy spare...

    [Unofficial] Production Bronco Renders based on Bronco R

    With the spare being attached to it, the tailgate is more likely to swing to the side unfortunately.

    What's next?

    There are a handful of Bronco events in the April-May time frame, that's when I'm expecting to see it. For what's next, maybe a superbowl ad with a glimpse of the hood or partial profile, highly stylized picture not a photo -- anything photography will be heavily hidden some other way with...

    Super Duty Tremor Package

    Lots of Superduty Tremor attention from Mike Levine recently. Hopefully it won't be long before we see some Bronco Tremor info.

    Top Gear Magazine photos

    Looks pretty good. Mirror is still in the wrong place, and I think the lower corners need to be cut Scout style. Wheel wells should probably be a little wider, less "half circle".

    Let’s talk about interior Design and dash board set up

    It's also 79.1 inches wide like a full size truck. That extra ~7 inches makes a big difference inside. No doubt it is also one advantage a ~72'ish" Bronco will have over Wrangler with a 64" body.

    Let’s talk about interior Design and dash board set up

    Using the space between seats in the Ranger as a reference, that seems unlikely. A midsize doesn't really have that third seat position to divvy up for arm rests and giant consoles. I'm with you on the door though, that's one reason I was happy to see the relatively low belt line. It might...

    Let’s talk about interior Design and dash board set up

    I'd prefer a landscape infotainment screen, as its more likely to afford room for some physical controls, upfitter switches etc. It will be interesting to see if Ford goes the same route as Wrangler with controls for the doors/windows.

    The other lift, body......

    In extreme cases both may be needed to manage driveline angles. Some of it is aesthetic. You can fit longer travel shocks in without punching through the hood or interior with some body lift eventually.

    First (Actual) 2021 Bronco U725 Prototype SPIED!!

    Maybe its the perspective, but it seems quite long. Maybe some large tires would bring it back. Or the 2-door. I like the way the fenders are shaping up, particularly the rear.

    The other lift, body......

    That's precisely what it's usually for. Bigger tires without most of the higher clearance. It works for some mud vehicles because they're not really driving over anything, but through it. Even then you're probably still getting more drag than with a similar suspension lift.

    The other lift, body......

    Seems like more of a 'for looks' approach. Nope.

    You think we could get Godzilla?

    Not from the factory, not a chance. Sure would be nice if they gave us something similar in the 4-5L range though.

    [Unofficial] Production Bronco Renders based on Bronco R

    Unless the fenders are meant to be super easy to swap, it seems highly probable that Bronco will follow with other Ford models and have some kind of edge flare.
