Might make Ford rethink the Bronco truck (which I would likely add to my stable) sigh...

It will be interesting to see if Ford makes the same mistake with the Bronco.

It's no secret that Gladiator is struggling. Sometimes you get it wrong and from the get go, I felt this thing was wrong from the looks to the pricing.
way over priced! And q4 2019
Gladiator 16k
Ranger 33k
Canyon/Colorado 31k
Tacoma 61k
Wrangler 52k ( up from previous year)
But many people were holding out for the JL.

but definitely makes me wonder about the Bronco Truck and Ford Courior

I’m hoping a bronco truck is just a half cab version of the suv, basically just a different top and rear setup

I think that the gladiator is here to stay but I don’t think it will ever sell over 75k units or so. It’s competing with too many different vehicles

75k? I don’t know if it will hit 60k for 2020. Ands it’s only down hill from here. Hence why they rolled out a new mid trim only 18 months into production.

Interesting. I thought they'd do better than that. To me, the Gladiator has much more appeal than a Wrangler. If Jeep offered a powertrain combo that I liked better I'd probably have one.

lmao that would require FCA to update their Powertrains.
They have the 280hp 3.6 then jump up to the 5.7 with 380hp. Nothing in between.
Even the 2.9 v6TT has 500hp! 440lbft

They desperately need a mid/low 300hp motor.

They apparently have a twin-turbo I6 in development.

meaning the Cherokee (FWD) will never cross 300hp giving ford a Great Opportunity To give the Baby Bronco 300hp and smoke them.

and “insiders” say it will have 380-520hp so replacing the 5.7 (for EPA reasons)

I gave it some thought at the Detroit Auto Show last year... Just two doors to many.
If they'd made it an extended cab like the concept, I might not be waiting on a Bronco.
Oh who am I kidding? I've been waiting on this Bronco for decades and I have Fiat issues.
