Please Ford. The Bronco would be a HUMONGOUS HIT in Australia.
Not just for Ford fans, but also:
Youth market who think Ranger / Everest is only for old people.
Jeep, Toyota, Nissan, VW, Mazda, D Max, and other 4x4 buyers who will flock to this Bronco.

PLEASE engineer it for RHD and send it to AUSTRALIA, New Zealand and other markets.
Between the Bronco and the Mustang you could change the whole image of Ford in these markets (which is badly needed) with stupid uncool cars like Fiesta, Focus etc.

DO IT.

I must admit it seems a little unfair that Ford Australia is doing the engineering and development for the Bronco but you aren't going to get it sold there, despite the success of the Ranger Raptor. I know when I was down there for a work trip a month ago I saw Ranger Raptors and Wildtracks all over Sydney. Obviously the high performance offroad market is strong there.

Maybe they'll add a rhd version in a mid cycle refresh or something? Can only hope at this point, unfortunately. Good luck!

4x4 market and aftermarket is strong in Oz but Bronco has huge potential to steal sales from other makes. Bronco has the cool factor which Ranger and Everest lack unfortunately. My own 38yo daughter is looking to replace her Q3 with a larger SUV and will not consider the Ranger or Everest.

I showed her the Bronco renders and she was instantly “YES”

Bronco would steal sales from other makes. She will probably go for 2020 LR Discovery Sport.

junk
I suspect the previous statements about the prospect for Bronco down under had more to do with not negativity impacting the ongoing Everest sales than with Ford's real long term plans for a Bronco offering.

Everest is. Brilliant SUV. I bought the top model Titanium in 2016. Sold it in 2018. But sales are VERY slow. Ford Au marketing is very poor. They never promoted the superior rear suspension and other USP’s over it’s cheaper competitors.

Bronco would sell in huge numbers.much bigger than Mustang.

That would be a great decision by Ford. Mustang has been popular here and Aussies love 4x4 SUV, Pick ups and Tein Cab pickups.
It would build the Ford brand by attracting buyers from other brands because it’s so cool. like Mustang.

I’ve had five S550’s and even Holden fanatics who normally hate Fords love them.
Would be same if Bronco came down under.

Probably very expensive to ship them across the pond.

I would love to see the Bronco sneak it’s way into 4WD Action or whatever the show is called now.

They had a Goodyear rep bring a Ranger Raptor and it was doing really well till it snapped a tie rod. I think that the Ranger Raptor made most of the obstacles look easy that it didn’t make for dramatic off-road content
