here we go again with the half door tease.......as for the 392 really. Just give us a 5.7 with a 6spd anything.....
Imagine the sticker shock if they built this...$75K or higher with 8-10 mpg.

I think it has the absurdly tall gearing so they can get enough factory MPG to be able to sell it. This is of course knowing that anyone that actually buys this is going to rip out the Dana 44’s before even looking at it.

personally I'd much prefer a new turbo straight six or 5.7 hemi and those FKING half doors!! Shit been waiting since the JL launch for the return of factory half doors.. Hopefully with the Bronco release it opens FCA eyes!

When it comes out it'll probably have 4.88 gears, a Rock-Trac transfer case, probably everything that a Rubicon has, just better.

Boy, looks like Jeep is definitely scared of the Ford Bronco being successful! LMAO
It’s not just them, more and more truck drivers are going electric. Electrics are faster, more powerful and make a lot of sense for many whom don’t really utilize offroad vehicles offroad and the gas powered car companies need to be scared.... it’s only a matter of time before phasing out does occur to the gasoline engine.

@JeepCares
Please get corporate to release info that’s concrete faster Bc tesla rivian and Nikola are successfully filling their preorders for electric trucks. Don’t be late to the game FCA or be like Audi and get phased out for being late to the game.

I would be surprised if this ever started production. Jeep already struggles with CAFE numbers and the premium for buyers would make it a niche vehicle. As many have said, competition in the market is good.

You can literally smell the desperation. It took Ford to build a V8 Wrangler.

Jeep: No you cannot have V8 Wrangler
Ford:
Also Jeep: Hey look at THIS!
How many years have the Ford fan boys been waiting for their Bronco LOL
In the meantime Jeep has sold what 600K JL Wranglers. It will take another year before Broncos trikle in to the Ford Dealers and the Ford Fanboys will bring their vaseline in to buy one:)
