It may be part of the video presentation of the reveal. It is silly to keep the trucks in a trailer sitting in Texas if the reveal isn't soon. Ford is really acting like A holes with this reveal. Just show the freaking thing!!!
I Believe it will be in the reveal video as well.

also note Ken Block said he was going to a ford test facility this week. Remember he was in a video testing the “Mach E” at the launch presentation. I be he’s doing the same for the bronco. And the Mach E still had camo on in the video.

the way I see it. After the holiday weekend we MIGHT get a hint of a reveal date from ford. But odds are it will be the second week of June If I were a betting man.

The one thing I see with most of these photos is some serious slant towards the front from the rear. Enough that water would run over the front windshield if it rains on the bronco sitting still. I hope there is a fox for that. Would be nice if they sat more like the photos Of the black bronco with an exhaust hose on it. I really hate the forward slant on new vehicles.
The roof has major camo padding on it. If you look at the pictures of the 4 door with just a wrap on the roof, driving the handling course, you'll see that it slants down from front to back.

I personally have never understood why people like having the front end of their truck up higher than the rear. Even to the point that they sell leveling kits to raise the front only. It reminds me of people driving with their seats laid back. But everybody else these days likes sticking their nose in the air all I can do about it is chuckle.

I have no idea why people like the Carolina Squat, but in this case I'm just talking about the gentle slope of the roofline.

You have every right to think this, but I am not a fan of your perspective.
  1. Ford and the Bronco team have a duty to take their time to ensure the reveal goes well and everyone stays safe, especially now.
  2. You aren't obligated to watch their every move as they prepare. Maybe these small releases are more out of kindness and understanding that people outside the circle want to know what's going on. They aren't trying to tease, they're trying to update without spilling too much.
Above all, they're teaching us patience and analytical skills, aren't they? I love the way this is being rolled out.
Maybe if we lived forever and time had little value. The initial Bronco concept vehicle was shown 15 years ago. Come on Ford.

I beg to differ.
I'm thinking part of building up the excitment again is the tease ...... kinda like sex, hopefully you know what I mean. ;)

I think they lost the timing on what excitement there was the first time around, now it's just down to a bunch of die hards that still care.
The same unenthusiastic exec who insists on the $1.10 metal antenna is probably the same person who is slowing down the excitement of not showing us this model yet....wtf!!!

With this extremely drawn out reveal, it makes me wonder if it took them several “do-overs” to get designs, features, and everything sorted and tested first. It seems like they’re trying way too hard to play this close to the vest just for what we’ve seen so far. I hope there is some legit news come reveal date.

I agree but there is STILL a lot of TIME between NOW and when PRODUCTION will START.

This may get me banned :p ... but since the advent of this new virus age, maybe Ford is deciding if a limited appeal vehicle is even in the cards at this time.

Considering the wranglers success idk if I’d call it limited appeal...

If that were the case we likely wouldn’t be getting new pics of less camouflaged Broncos being dropped to us.
