The overall look is very similar. There were numerous "Bronco" sightings early on that turned out to be old Scouts.
Thats actually kinda hilarious! Funny people would think a vehicle that old is new.

"But to connect this pragmatically realistic perspective of the future, with the notion of launching a new product line under the Scout nameplate, is truly speculative and at this time, not reflective any plans, real or imagined. "

If VW wants to bring anything back to the market then they need to bring back the Type 181 aka "The Thing".

Friend had a Thing growing up, everybody thought she was crazy and freely gave unsolicited opinions on how terrible it looked. But we had a blast in the car.

Well they can't do any worse then GM did to the blazer....🤔
if its EV only with an automatic, then other than coastal yuppies and greenies, who’d get it over a Wrangler or price gouged 4dr?

I currently drive a 1980 Scout II with 285k miles. Doubt VW could match that even with EV. But if it looks like a Scout I may be on for one.

I remember seeing an interview with some scout collectors/experts. One guy SWORE he had literal proof ford copied the scouts overall design. Not knocking either, just a little tidbit I saw. Both are really cool vehicles. Competition makes better vehicles for us all.
And I thought Jeep did with the Renegade. All it needs is fold down windshield, removable doors and an open bed version

I think folks could be forgiven if they confused this with the new Bronco back in 2020...lots of variations, but the general shape and stance is very similar.

I think the 4-door Bronco looks more like a Scout than a Bronco. The bolt on plastic grill of the new Bronco is much more like the Scout than the EB, round wheel arches, windshield shape and frameless window. Just move the rear axle of the Scout further back. I had a full cage in my '77 Scout II and never had the top on. It looked A LOT like the 4 door Bronco with the top off. Maybe I'll remove the trail sights and put IH badges and a fat rallye stripe on it.
