Personally I think the 2dr is way too small and the look is a bit cartoonish. But I feel the same about the 2dr Wrangler to be honest.
Size is comparable to the Wranglers - which is exactly what they wanted to do. The 4dr seems like a nice size to me, I don't think I would buy it if it were any bigger or smaller. As for the looks, I still dig it - although I do not like the darker colors at all. The dark colors make it look dated and don't have enough contrast between the grill/mirrors/etc.
I keep trying to like the 2 door but the more I look at it the more I think it looks goofy. The proportions just seem off to me.
I'll get hate for it but I consider the 4 door the better looking one.

Using this from the engagement story, the 2 door looks great. I wish the rear was stretched a couple inches where the back fender flare starts, but they nailed it regardless.

If that guy doesn't get her a Bronco the engagement is def off!!:rolleyes:
You can't just tempt a girl with a diamond Bronco that size and then not give it to her!!:ROFLMAO:

A couple real concerns I have:

1. This vehicle is small. The two door is especially tiny.
2. The looks are starting to fade on me.

Maybe it’s that we keep seeing black Frankenstein pre-production models with mismatched parts and colors. Or, every spy shot we see has Broncos that are beat to hell. Or the grey hardtop. Not sure, but I’m definitely not as excited by the looks as I originally was.

Im sure I’m not the only one feeling this way, and this is the big risk Ford takes by taking FOREVER to get it to market. If they were available, one would be in my garage already.
Two door is tiny because it’s meant to be an off roading machine. The smaller the better depending on what extreme trail you are on.

Watching the videos of them off roading doesn't have me convinced the 2 door is really that much more capable. More capable, yes, a lot more not necessarily.

I am reserved for a 2-door for the $$$ difference at the moment not necessarily for the edge in off roading.

Remember a lot of those videos were on wide open trails with no trees. So it all depends where you off road at. If tons of trees I would personally want the smallest length possible to maneuver in tight spots and rock crawling you want shorter wheel base too. For other purposes the 4 door will do the same on trails.

Is this the standard hard top or modular? The back panel seems large.

I think it is the lens that makes that back panel seem so big. I do like seeing that you can lose the front panels while keeping the back on.

Am I the only one that has been underwhelmed by the color Shadow Black? Ever since Ford replace Tuxedo Black with Shadow Black I haven't been a fan of and Fords in that color. Maybe because Tuxedo Black was a metallic paint and Shadow Black isn't.
I wish my SHO had been a straight black. I am not a metallic fan, especially on a trail rig that may need paint repairs.
