It's all just part of the structure. A-pillars also have airbags.

Why does that yellow 2-door have a MANUAL AND THE SASQUATCH PACKAGE???

Also, curious if the front two freedom panels can stay on with the rest of the roof removed? That's how I prefer running in my JL, sun is too flipping hot to not have good shade over my head even if I have doors and back roof off.

Based on a tweet from Mike Levine of Ford they might actually be changing their stance on that not being an available configuration.

Because that's not the Sasquatch package. It's a Ford Performance Parts rig to show off things that are available at the parts counter. If you see a good picture of the interior you can see that it's missing switches for lockers.

Thanks. It looked lifted taller than the normal Sasquatch

Automobile Magazine reports that Ford will offer a Bronco pickup truck by 2024 or so. (Four door, of course). I wonder if it will eat the Ranger? Or will it BE the Ranger?

In that photo it’s not hard to see which vehicle will traverse the tightest of situations offroad. The bronco is just too big! That thing is a boat compared to the wrangler!

It looks like an early Bronco but it's dimensionally bigger than the '78-79 big Bronco!

to me bronco looks like a fat girl next to wrangler.

may be sleeker higher fenders and get rid of the factory bumper [shorter may be], get rid of that factory grille, a few other customizations, may be it will look great.

I think this is somewhat of a setup. Do you really think that someone would have taken that same photo opportunity, trying to make the Bronco prototype (mules) look better if the Wrangler was a Rubicon with 35s or 37s?

I have a Sport S with 35s that I'll bet they'll refuse to park next to. Especially when it's above treeline.

Be careful of the trickery of false impressions. I'll bet that Wrangler Sport they parked next to will still out perform them both on and off-road.

As always, it comes down to looks. Like the wording in your rear view mirror, this photo is just about their perspective of making the Bronco appear bigger or better than it actually is.

Maybe it's tire size, but looking at these photos, and purely from a design perspective I am wondering if the Wrangler is better at appealing to men and women.

Don't get me wrong here...tastes run the gamut for both genders. Some women may even find the Bronco not beefy enough, while some men my find the Subaru Crosstrek all the off roading they need, and some women preferring a sedan to a Wrangler, let alone a Bronco.

But painting in broad stereotypes: which is really what broad scale marketing and sales measure, I wonder if the female off-roading capable SUV segment might gravitate more to a Wrangler.

I have enormous respect for both rigs and genders. Each (vehicle and person) is made better by the presence of the other.

I think Bronco looks good overall. But the 4-door looks too much like a Land Rover Discovery —which is good or bad, depending on your take; the 4-door with the soft top looks like a... Mongolian yurt.

Your absolutely right. My thoughts as well. Bronco needs diet, let me trim it up with my chainsaw
