100% believe there will be no Bronco truck. I think all rumors are actually the next Ranger.
I'm all for them stepping up the game on the ranger... for me it's plan B. I'm actually waiting to see the new Ranger before I buy anything.

But if they do a Bronco Pick Up that was benchmarked using this...

and add a bit of that...

I won't be able to get off my wallet fast enough.

Ever wonder why Bronco6G has a Bronco Pickup forum? I sure do... they wouldn't... would they?

One of the insiders also said after the release of the 2/4 door and Sport.... "you haven't seen anything yet.... the plan is to keep the Bronco Buzz going for years.

To me a Bronco Pickup makes sense if you consider Bronco as a Brand.

I would love to see 5/8 or extended Cab version built on the current 4door platform. I just need some space behind the seat for stuff. Like the picture of the JK with the GR8Tops conversion above.

I think as long as they have Factory utilization, they should use it.

A short while ago KIA /Hyundai were in trouble. Now they've got SUVs for every shoe size and they are rolling in the profit. Commonality of parts, platform sharing and Bam they are back in the Black.

I'm all in on the pickup. I currently daily a screw F150 and love the versatility and space it offers. Room for the family, and all the stuff that comes along with them. And while it's perfect for dealing with any surprises that pop up throughout the day, it is certainly not engaging to drive. (See the mini in the sig for fun :D)

Now a daily driver that is convertible, has a standard transmission, and a utility bed would be ideal for me. More than enough fun factor to keep the daily commute enjoyable, plus a bed for whenever the need suddenly arises.

I absolutely love my Screw Platinum for the same reasons. It's like a Mercedes S class room and comfort wise, and has a bed! i would love a Bronco-Up!

Yeah, I still wonder why they even brought the Ranger back to begin with. You can get an F150 for very little more $ than what a Ranger is. If you want a truck, get a TRUCK! lol 😅
One reason to get the ranger might be that the ranger fits in my garage whereas the F-150 doesn't. However, I'm getting the 4 door bronco and not a ranger or an F-150.

THIS!!!!!!!!! but bronco styling.... they would sell hundred of thousands of them!!!!!!!!!!!!
make the roof and upper portion of the rear cab removable......... if they didn't do the extended cab keep the bed interior dimensions 4 foot by 4 foot. Perfect. Dont need a 6' bed, if you did get a larger pickup.

this one looks good. just wish it had a lot shorter rear overhang. reminds me of the gladiator and the gladiator is the ugliest looking 4x4 ive ever seen. Cut that last 10-12" off the bed.

2 door half cab bronco, dont change the wheel base drastically, The new 2d bronco is longer already. Dont extend the bed to make most of it hang behind the rear axle.......
Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i bet if ford designers did this, have an option for stiffer rear springs to up the payload, Overlanders would go crazy building custom bed inserts with rooftop tents and maybe even a real small pop out with stove. This would easily kick the 4 runner and Sequoia to the curb.
If the did a 4 door version make sure you dont extend the bed far past the rear axle like the gladiator

If Ford doesn't do it... I'm certain the aftermarket world will.
Might be a little far fetched because the current bronco has C-Pillars and no roll bar right behind the driver. Real large expensive cut and weld modifiations would be needed, maybe wont be to far fetched......

Why not kill off the Ranger design language and use the Bronco's to replace the Ranger in the compact pickup line?
Ditto.

Always been a Ford driver- several F-150s and classic Mustangs. Moved to LA and needed a smaller truck but found the Ranger to be pretty bland and uninspiring. Gladiator was the option that checked most of my boxes in the segment. I absolutely love the new Bronco design and if they can build a smaller truck that looks as good and has some solid off-road chops, I'll be first in line to trade in my Gladiator.

Side note: The Gladiator has been a pretty great little truck. While I miss the interior size of my F-150, I haven't found the bed size to be a problem at all. I still make my Home Depot runs, I fit full 4x8 sheets of plywood, MDF, drywall etc with no problem. I was able to spend most of quarantine camping off grid in Arizona and had an absolute blast. Crossed a few rivers, crawled up many mountains, and then made the 6 hour drive back to LA without issue.

Assuming the economy isn't totally decimated by next summer, the new Bronco is going to be a smash hit. The design instantly made the Wrangler/Gladiator design feel dated. If I didn't need a truck for work, I'd be a Bronco buyer.

Kudos to Ford and can't wait to see some of your Broncos out on the trails next summer!
