What if 2-door Bronco is longer than it looks?

Looking at the images, it is clear that the 2-door and 4-door have different doors. However, it looks like the 2-door might have a longer door. If that’s the case, then combined with the larger wheels, it might not be as stubby as it looks? 100in wheelbase?

Roughly 2.75 tires for the WB so a 35” tire would mean 96”WB

Felt like adding this here:

Just for comparisons sake, I made the post below in 2016. I updated the specs to the 2019 model year:


--------------------------------
What the intended goal seems to be is a Jeep killer, much like the 1G Bronos were, slightly bigger, very utilitarian in their base form. I'm not certain they can get much bigger than the current Wranglers though and still be highly mobile on the trail.
Per very little research, the Wrangler is already bigger than the 1G Bronco.
So who knows, it's all speculation at this point.

Well, it is certainly a different part than the 4-door version, the beltline bump over the door handle in the sheetmetal is a giveaway. I'd like it to be a longer wheelbase, but we've measured it lots of times on prototypes already, so it really isn't going to change at this point.

The perspective makes it hard to judge the length for now.

Take a look at these posts to explain that it only appears shorter due to the angle of the photo.

I hear ya. It's just that the perspective and wide angle lens distortion from the photo, makes the front appear significantly longer than the back. Both red lines below are same length, and I don't think the back end of the Bronco is that much shorter than the front. The camo version, even if the bumper accounts for some of that length, still seem more even front/back. But we'll soon see ...

Side view appears more similar in length front to back:

I stretched out the 2D photo to give us an idea of proper proportions (I know the wheel ratio is off...)

Was going to say there is a lot of perspective angle in the original picture so what is 17” on the front wheel is more on the back and any estimation of length using know dimensions and even trying to scale them would be inaccurate. That and this is a model, and who knows how much different the production prototype is. For example, we don’t have a good view of the rear quarter of the two door, if it overhangs as much as the 4 door, the picture of the model is misleading.

Yeah, the door is a good 5" longer than an EB door, which could be a good thing. But perspective aside, it still just seems too short back there. The rear windows should be about 1.3 times longer than the door windows. The proportions just don't look right. The rear windows are about the same size as the door windows. I think 4 dr Jeeps are dumb and have been waiting to see the 2 dr Bronco, but now I feel like the 4 dr Bronco looks more balanced. But, if it has similar wheelbase to the JL, it will be too long for tight trails. That's where the stubby one would shine. You just have to trade looks for function.

The two door will look fine. Its just a perspective thing in the photo that makes it look a bit weird. You can see this very clearly by looking at the different shape of the front Wheel compared the rear Wheel in the original photo.
