I stumbled across an article this morning on fordauthority.com confirming the launch of manufacturing in the Mexico plant for the Bronco Sport on Oct 26th. Check out the comments from someone who worked there regarding a secret surprise Bronco coming from Ford. Legit?

His comment is below:

I personally built that line! Hernosillo is the HOTTEST place in all of Mexico, but the trade off is the people are some of the kindest! The next statement is True ask anyone from Mexico, the women are some of the most beautiful! Better than Brazil!!! An yes I’ve worked there for months at a time.
Theres also going to be a surprise Bronco…thats all I can say for now. I know the new back to roots trail monster Bronco with a 2.7 wasn’t enough of a shock. Ford hasn’t released all the secrets.. keep watching i think all trail/outdoor enthusiasts will be pleasantly surprised

I think he's talking about the Warthog. Which we will be pleasantly surprised when they take the camouflage off. I'm Hoping for a First Edition without Navy Pier interior. 😆

That would be my first guess due to all the early testing pics floating around.

With this coming from the Mexico Plant where the Bronco Sport is being built, I'd speculate that this is about the Sport-Hog and not the Warthog.

Have to include a picture for reference for those that don't browse the Warthog sub-forum. While the image is a render, there was a member here in the Arizona area (I think) that had spotted one that looked like the rendered photo. They were certain that it wasn't the camo-Warthog.

Interesting concept. But I think a price tag on a rig like that might be putting you into a Badlands Bronco, which most folks would probably prefer.

The current Badlands Sport with Badlands option package (yes, confusing if you aren't familiar with Sport line) is $40K after DD. Yet, they are still selling plenty. As much complaining about the interior here on the Bronco, the Sport doesn't have the same blowback. The Sport has a nice interior. It has a small engine and dated tech for MY21. But it will continue to evolve. If the rendered BS does become available, I'll have one sitting next to my Bronco.

Put bigger than a 2.0 in it and I'm cancelling my 4 door preorder. That thing is awesome.

I'm not a fan of the (Escape retrofit) Sport, but I gotta admit....I'd drive the heck out of this just as it sits. Maybe add a rack and some lights but that's it. Pretty cool.

That looks like a 4 runner with a lift and a new grill. Very unimaginative render lol.

The person that made this can only work with so much. It's a Sport with a lift. It looks exactly like what it's supposed to look like. It's not their fault that, to you, it looks like a 4Runner or that SUVs all inherently look the same. I wouldn't call it "unimaginative."
