Honestly it is almost impossible to tell the difference in color between the original MIC color and the updated version. The thing you really notice is the reduced glossiness. It might even be that they are actually technically the same color. I don't really understand why they didn't just go with a black sheet rather than the weird blueish blackish color.
Absolutely admitting that I may not have seen all of the MIC tops, I can tell you that the one on the black 2-door Sasquatch was black. No hint of blue. The one on the cactus grey 4-door Sasquatch was grey. Not a faded black, but MIC grey.

Based on these pics, does anyone have a better idea what the black rectangular box in front of the inter-cooler is?
Originally it was assumed to be radar, but that was supposedly discredited as radar is near the rear view mirror.
I believe that's the sensor for Adaptive Cruise.

Can someone with a more trained eye tell me what engine we're looking at on the 4-door chassis?

I'm still learning my ecoboost architectures... :rolleyes:
Not sure if someone answered.. Pretty sure it's the V-6 since the intake comes out the front... Pretty positive the 2.3 will be a N/S engine and the Throttle body will come out the passengers side... They are both very busy looking engines so it is hard to tell anymore!

As I just mentioned, as someone that’s changed an alternator at an auto parts store in a different state than my own, that alternator makes me feel sick. That’s not a 1 hour job in any way.

Yeah, agreed! It looks like they moved it for this platform too... On the F-150 it's on the Driver's side still kinda low... Hopefully don't have to look into replacing one during ownership...?

Here's the easy to change alternator. I've changed probably 2 dozen of this style over the years.

Alternator in my H2, have to climb into engine bay but it’s two very accessible bolts and the wires.

Only issue is that you have to wedge it into the cradle. Not hard with normal tools, rather difficult with limited tools I was (thankfully) provided.

The 2.3 actually has the tb on the drivers side. You can see it in the “parts pictures“ package from the Bronco media page (The ones of the Sasquatch chassis)

Not gonna lie, I was previously set on the 2.7 (partially because it’s the engine in my current truck), but the 2.3 is growing in me from a diy maintenance and weight prespective.

Did anyone notice the big red button on the dash? Some sort of kill switch for the prototypes? Seems unusual even for a demo.

Some current photos from the Bronco factory (MAP) showing test units being built.

This is a first look at a 2021 Bronco body in white, along with frame to body decking process, test units and the engine / underhood.

If you're wondering about construction, here's what's aluminum vs steel on the 2021 Bronco.

Aluminum:
Hood
Front fenders
Rear fenders
Doors
Tailgate

Steel:
Frame
Floor
Sport tubes (cage) (boron steel)
