I always read TRD Pro in my head as "Turd Pro"

Also that's how I say it out loud, to people.

Yup.

But I'll be driving one if the Bronco isn't up to snuff. There really isn't much out there with the reliability and resale of a 4Runner.
I agree about the resale. I can't quite figure it out. I can't stand to drive anything Toyota makes, yet it's a cult like situation. They're terribly uncomfortable, cheap on the inside and feel flimsy in my hand, very plasticy and yet they're treated as the second coming of Christ himself in terms of resale, it's hilarious.

i think the Tacoma resale is going to drop like crazy for the 2015+. the previous gen is better in almost every way IMO.

HAHA. I have a 2nd gen Tundra (2013). The interior is hot garbage awful. But the resale is better than the big 3 (except Raptor) and I've replaced...A battery. That's it. Just oil changes for 120k miles.

And I don't really care about the 'why' its resale is so good. Because it works to my benefit HAHA. But yeah. Makes no sense to me.

That pretty much sums up the cult following of Honda and Toyota. They were making 300k mile vehicles when the Big 3 were still deeply entrenched in the "planned obsolescence" era and built their vehicles to be garbage and badically worthless at the 100k miles mark.
That 100 deadline still lives in the mindset of Americans to this day.

"Planned Obsolescence" .....a term created by American companies to ensure repeat customers, the epitome of American corporate greed.

If it weren't for the imports, we'd still be untangling 300 miles of vacuum tubing to change a pcv valve in a 4 year old rust bucket.
Rant over.

So I may have sold a bronco, talked to a guy at the gas station. He said he was looking to trade in his car for a suv. But the only one he likes is the jeep, but hates FCA. I told him about the new bronco coming out, rattled off what we know/expect to see. Said that fits the bill for him. Asked when he can order it. Lol, so if we do have a ford insider here. When can I expect my free hat and/or hoodie? Its the least you could do, my family currently owns over 25 fords, and 3/4 of them are less than 10 years old. Lmao. :crackup: :crackup: :crackup: :crackup:
