Yes, today is officially another day and we have another Bronco story. BUT — stick with us for a moment — we have another sighting of the so-called “Baby Bronco.” This time, a TFLcar reader sent in photos of the car testing outside Phoenix, Arizona. The Bronco’s baby brother is set to debut sometime in 2020, though we’re not exactly sure when just yet.

The bottom pic is old, but they've got some different wheels on the top two. Maybe testing with production size now?

I was excited for gold/bronze wheels at first then I realized they're just dirty.
Hey, whoevers the spy here on the forums, we'll take Dirty Bronze as an option!

First pic seems to explain the odd oval shape in the previously leaked grille photo. Looks like the round headlights are recessed back behind a curved clear lens with the turn signal projecting forward and in towards the center of the grille.

I just went back to take a look at leaked pics from the old dealer invite sneak peak event and If the "baby bronco" looks anything like those pics (and by the recent spy shots it should) Ford is gonna sell a SH*T TON of those IMHO. I predict the baby is gonna very big hit!!!
Already believed they would, but its nice to get confirmation

If there is an actual Bronco in Phoenix I'm definitely going to try and see it in person.
Before camera phones we pulled the old black vinyl Velcro crap off of Contour SVT when they were using my shop as a stop off in the middle of the pre-production prototype testing like you’re seeing here. I rode in one where the driver blew the radiator hose somehow and we had to hoof it back to my office. That car was an animal in the early phases of testing. By the time it hit the road it was pretty tame. You couldn’t do any of that now, especially since they wrap the cars and it doesn’t look to be easily removed.
See if you can find a Bronco and pull the wrap off and break the internet.

I wouldn’t want to do that, now that it’s obvious we’re going to see it soon.

I’d just be interested in talking to the drivers, and seeing if they’d reveal anything to me. There was a Toyota test mule (some sort of hybrid car) parked at a QT right by my house, and the driver was smoking a cig. He wouldn’t tell me SHIT about it, not even confirm the brand or anything.

Yeah, test drivers won't say anything at all.

I get why they are trying to hide the roof on the "Big Boy" Bronco but is there a reason this roof looks like they are trying to hide something still? Looking at the dealer images it looks way more rounded than these and all the spy shots of his vehicle......

... or my eyes could be playing with me and it is correct....

There is more than meets the eye...
