I dunno, I'd like a fixed-roof 4x4 SUV with an available manual. Since the FJ's demise, there haven't been any options on the market. A used FJ would be great, except they didn't depreciate, so like hell if I'm going to pay new prices for an outdated vehicle. Dealers always quickly sold every FJ, Toyota just didn't put any effort into it (few updates over its life, no marketing support, special editions, etc). Styling/practicality/interior were also way too quirky; Bronco looks to be more mainstream in that regard.They'd have to be stupid not to. Toyota proved with the FJ Cruiser that people wanted a removable roof more than anything else in a sporty offroader lifestyle vehicle. It's the only reason the Cruiser failed so badly. This vehicle will probably fail as well if it's permanent roof only.
I wouldn’t be surprised a bit if it was an updated Troller.... it’s been discussed for awhile as a candidate that Ford already had in its arsenal to use, since it’s so damn close to being the “look” people would recognize as a classic Bronco shape.With some tweaks that thing could look okay.
