Where's the Online Petition (not a poll just on the forum)?

We used to do them to get a good read of what the Public Preferred...... just saying......

Wouldn't this suggest that BRONCO is the well-established name, i.e., it will not be called the Ford Warthog? Their examples don't seem to backup their case: F-150 Lightning, MUSTANG Mach-e.

It seems the Bronco Raptor will have 37s as an option like the GEN3 Raptor. Spy photos shows 35 and 37s. Here's the photo that shows 37s.

The sheetmetal is looking more and more like a standard Bronco with larger flares.

Why are they quoting 35" tires, I thought we had seen 37" tires in some of the other photos?

You missed the part where it was supposed to be call the "Bronco Warthog", Ford even trademarked the name Warthog.

That’s the point. Wouldn’t that be consistent with the naming methodology? Just seems like a lot of speculation over nothing.

per article in today’s Ford Authority:

https://fordauthority.com/2021/05/ford-bronco-warthog-might-launch-under-different-name-exclusive/

Sources familiar with the matter have told us that Ford’s current leadership favors powerful, well-recognized names over new names that would need to establish recognition in the marketplace. It is precisely for that reason that two of the newest Ford products rely on existing names with plenty of history, cachet, recognition.

We’re of course referring to FoMoCo’s decision to name its first dedicated EV as the Mustang Mach-E (rather than just “Mach-E”) and its first electric pickup the F-150 Lightning (rather than F-150 EV or F-150 Electric). In that light, the Warthog name has no recognition beyond those closely following the latest Bronco-related news and developments. In fact, it’s not even clear which of the four warthogs inspired the Warthog name to begin with.
Pretty sure the real reason they aren't going with Warthog is because people like me said it's a stupid name! 😄 :LOL:

Either give it a name like Bronco R or Bronco RS like Ford has done with other sport-upgraded models, or go with Raptor. Or maybe another horse-inspired name that could work with Bronco. But of the three (or any choice, for that matter), which one tells people what it is without any further discussion?

Well with the Ranger Raptor allegedly coming in another year (or twenty) they are definitely building out the Raptor line. I'm curious how this will go though if the Bronco brand is supposed to become it's own standalone entity like Jeep and Ram how will the Raptor versions fit in?

The more the Raptor Warthog progresses along the more I like it and the less interested I am in it to add to my stable. I need the Marine vinyl and washout floors in my life, not Recaro racing seats which the Raptor variant will likely have. I like Recaro/racing seats in my cars but want something extra comfy and easy to clean in my off roader. Also I'm leaning towards the 2.7 as my preferred engine option vs the Raptor's alleged 3.0 as the 3.0 is an aluminum block and not as strong/durable in my opinion and doesn't have as low or as fat of a torque curve.
