    General shape and look, IFS suspension, 5 link rear, ecoboost V6... Are you in line? Just curious.

    I was on the fence before because I didn't know the specs. Now I'm basically 100% on board unless something changes drastically. SFA would have been a dealbreaker for me. Everything we've seen about this is perfect for what I was hoping for so far, assuming that the Bronco R was the 4 door wheelbase and there will be a shorter one available.

    It looks badass. Not pretty, but very racy, a productionized version with a grill and the tires actually inside the fenders is looking good to me.

    I haven't a clue. I'm all about the L/W/H proportionality of the 2-door. I might be a hair disappointed about how much #2069 seems to dwarf the EB. I did however watch the TFL video Playboyshiredhand posted & that reporter could not have been more excited if he'd been standing next to Neil Armstrong as he took his first steps on the moon

    I was pretty much always in so long as it wasn’t too tiny. I had major doubts with all the frankenbroncos looking like tiny little go-karts, but I’m solidly in the ‘buy’ category after seeing the video released today.

    If anything, this pushes the Mach-E out of my garage unless/until I can convince my wife to get both and share.

    I don't think there's sufficient data from this prototype/desert racer to draw a clear picture of what the production vehicle will look like or come equipped with. I'm going to have to see and drive pretty much any new production vehicle before I commit $45k+ to it.

    Looks cool, maybe gives a hint of what is to come. I'm not completely in love with it and I don't hate it - but there just isn't enough stock on that truck to form an opinion on what is going to roll off the production line in 14 months or so.

    Hard to say just from the R, but it’s not looking good.

    I’m betting the JLUR would serve me better as far as off-road performance, durability, modifications... Just wish Jeep offered a TTV6.

    I Think In Midsize SUV’S Width Is More Important Than Length. The More Interior Space And Leg Room The Better. That’s Where You Have The Others wanting And Wishing.

    A lot could change in a year but nothing I've seen would change my decision. I like the ease of SFA(lift ease) but I won't be doing much if any rock crawling and certainly nothing where IFS becomes a concern. The overall styling is going to be great but I look forward to the details on roof panels and overall interior design. Mines going to be a fun machine so styling and overall fun factor are key. I want quality and creature comforts but its sure as hell going to get muddy!

    I’m buying it as long as it fits in my garage, which my Escape fits in with about an inch on each side.

    I was always in.

    don’t care what it has ffor front suspension.
    My Bronco will just be a garage queen for the most part.
    Mine will never see hackberry trail or even table Mesa. Most it will see is broken arrow or box canyon and it will perform fine for that.
    My Bronco will remain bone stock. My days of wasting thousands on lifts, and tires and spending entire weekends in the garage tinkering are over.
    Not that I’m old, I’m just sick of having too many projects..

    I'll admit it: I only really care about how it looks, and we're just now getting a little more information in that regard to have me 95% convinced it's going to be awesome.

    I'm certain it will offer all the performance I need for daily driving with occasional off road excursions. Sure, SFA is cool and a V8 would be an absolute deal-clincher, but I'm mostly just so stoked it's coming back that I'm a likely buyer anyway.

    I've been in since we first saw the 2004 concept (which I thought looked pretty sweet itself). My biggest concern is all the talk of a turbo 4. And yes I've seen the output numbers, but I will use it to tow a 12 foot trailer with 2 quads, and I don't want it to struggle like my wife's Jeep. Would feel much better with a V6, sadly it'll never see a 351 (my preferred engine) dropped in it.
