I wish they had gone with the more squared look of the wheel arches on the originals (the cut originals in the rear), but overall I'm impressed with what they've put together.
I honestly think they look really good round. It matches the rest of the Ford lineup. It helps the Bronco look more like a Ford than a jeep or a older GM Truck

The new Silverados have round wheel wells...

The tires are round. The fenders are not as square as the past 40 years, but i wouldn’t say round.

I'm confused - you're talking about a truck but you posted a picture of a Gillette Fusion 5 razor?

Yeah the 2500 is still square but look at the 1500. A coworker has one and they look much more circular in person.

Thanks, so I still don't understand the B pillar, why bother having frameless windows and then have a ginormous b pillar, spoils the totally topless idea.
I absolutely love the frameless doors, they aren't for visibility, they are for removing. When you remove the door (window rolled down) the door will practically be half the size, and considerably lighter. Much more practical for the application in my opinion.

Edit: As I read I saw others basically answered this already.

First, I'm buying a Bronco, period. I am a little disappointed that it looks like Ford did not fulfill some 6g fantasies. A Wrangler like tailgate instead of some amazing swing gate tailgate hybrid, but a rear mounted spare delivers some tough design limitations. I was hoping for some totally modular top, where any or all panels could be removed independently, but it looks like a Wrangler like "Freedom" top. And despite all the GOAT talk, it looks like regular IFS. Reality sucks. I did design work throughout my career and it seems every time I thought I had discovered the answer to a Holy Grail, something popped up to burst the bubble. Maybe I wrong and the reveal will show they beat reality, or future models or the after market will address these issues, but in the meantime bring it on I'm ready!

Oh absolutely. My first car was a 2500 Silverado. It was a hand me down from my Dad. It was a nice truck but I just can't imagine buying a new one. The exterior is atrocious and the interior is 6 years behind the times.

You are ON your game, mister. Now, has everyone received their e-condoms for the reveal? Wouldn't want any accidents! :oops:
