Big promises ...insiders say it delivers, in a big way!
I'm getting pumped.

Damn that was a really long article. Forgive me for skimming across it all. I was just looking for some mention of a tailgate 😂
Or for the purists the hidden SFA 👌
Does this mean the reveal is gonna drag on through history? We know where it came from. We know the different generations... Just show it to us and tell us about the cool stuff we wanna know... Like the 351 under the hood! Didn't really like how he talked up the Mustang's 4 banger.

I mean the 2015+ Mustangs are by FAR (like zero contest) the best mustang we've had since 1973. And this is the same guy who helped design the current mustang generation. They aren't about us "making do" it's more so that you may have to change people's perspectives as to what will work the best in a certain role. An example he doesn't give in the article is the independent rear suspension in the Mustang. People were SO damn mad when that news first came out. But now? It was 110% the right call. I'm sure Bronco will have many things just like that where it won't even be discussed in a few years because it was so obviously the correct thing to do.

The one thing this article made clear is they listened to owners in the design process. They voiced our concerns i'm sure, and Ford either took them into account or assuaged their fears.

They went deep into that about what fans want on “A faster horse.” And the last generation F-150 when the mew 2.7 ecoboost hit with the Aluminum body.

they went to car shows, they went to meets, they went on forums. Ford does their homework.

And I would agree. This Chief engineer knows his stuff and knows the enthusiast market. Everything about the 2015 mustang makes it the best since 73. Ecoboost engine. IRS. Computer controls. 10spd auto. Safety features. And more!

Interesting, if so that validates that the leak photo was not someone stumbling upon the photo shot.

Then the photo was intentionally leaked, oh wait, that would never happen.
Yeah no, this isn't a thing. I know you guys on the forum like to talk about intentional leaks and everything, but we don't do that. Upper management has made it very clear on multiple occasions that leaks are not endorsed by the company in any way. The only things released by the company are the things on official Ford websites and social media sites.

Any random person with a drone could have taken the photo. Holly Oaks is surrounded by a freeway and several high-traffic roads. It is also next to a ski resort with a huge parking lot. Anyone could have pulled off a nearby road and flown a drone over.

They can not condone leaks all day and still “leak.”

Better fitment of larger diameter tires from the factory, based on user experience over the last few generations.

Also aesthetically matches the Ford family of vehicles better with round arches.

This was good to hear. I think it’s really important for a design team to search out what purist want and have a full team of different thinkers have input.

This Dave Pericak had a really tough job of balancing all the pieces to make this right and it sounds like he did it the right way. All the news up to now point that his team nailed it. With our almost impossibly high hopes and bars to uphold its pretty safe to say at this point that they are going to deliver and even surpass a lot of our expectations.

A lot of us had our doubts but I am thrilled to see what we have seen so far. I’ll wait for the real thing to give anymore praise but if this Bronco is what its hinting at then this man will hit legend status.
I was ready to go full Karen if this Bronco wasn’t done right but I don’t think I’ll need to speak to any Ford managers come revel time.

Reading through the interview and scrutinizing it for new information, I found where it said “Ford has told dealers it will offer removable doors that can be stored in the back.”

Though we knew about the removable doors, this is the first time I’ve heard the doors can be stored in the back. This will be nice for removing the doors on the fly and having them with you instead of leaving them at the house.

Thought that was well known. 🤷🏼‍♂️

There was a Patton Patent on the Door Storage months ago...... we just hadn't had any official confirmation until now on it actually being available in the Bronco
