Sounds pretty cool to me!

From Loren Healy:

I’m so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to spend the day in Johnson Valley with some of the Bronco engineers and durability testing team.

All of us future Bronco owners are in for a huge treat! I had expectations going into this, but my mind was 100% blown by the capabilities of this vehicle. I would describe it as a mix of a Raptor, early Bronco, and a SXS all in one. It absolutely rips in the open desert, but is very nimble and agile, and works as good in the rocks as any other stock vehicle on 33’s or 35’s that I have ever driven!

Ford really has one upped everyone with the new Bronco, and I’m very confident in saying the bar has been raised!

"works as good in the rocks as any other stock vehicle"

That sounds hopeful. Personally I have no intention of ripping around in some desert. (Nor do most people.) I will however, be navigating rocky trails with various obstacles, along with some slickrock and mud, in most cases not all that fast, while exploring the mountains, or making my way to various fishing holes, campsites and lakes for canoeing. Will be great if the new Bronco handles that kind of usage well.

It has been in the back of my mind, so i am glad to hear it from somebody in the know.

I’m curious about the ride quality difference between the standard and the Bilstein shocks.

Ford knocked this thing out of the park...
Let’s hope they can get it in the hands of the buying public without too many hiccups...
