Good! Bring it on, I'm rooting for Ford to bring the fight to Jeep. Unfortunately he said it will be Ford Ranger sized pretty much confirming no two door version.
The only way to do it would be if Ford brought its Troller T4 from Brazil to the states. They had to shorten the T6 Ranger platform to accomodate the 2 door Troller so I dont think it will happen. There's going to be a lot of pissed off Ford guys I tell you that. Good for FCA the only one with the balls to continue building the 2 door off roader here.I'm not a 2 door buyer .... but I do hope they offer a 2 door just to support the legacy.
Article say if the Bronco's roof has just a few removable panels like the Renegade then it won't have a chance to truly compete with the Wrangler -- that fully removable top is just too huge part of what Makes the Wrangler so attractive to its buyers. Definitely agree with that but they don't consider that the JL Wrangler may not as fully removable a top as before and may end up being a bunch of removable panels too no?Here's what the auto press thinks the Bronco has to do do compete with the Wrangler.
You're overlooking one major factor - reliability and build quality.On the surface, the Wrangler's blueprint of a rugged, capable, configurable, body on frame SUV seems easy to copy but can the competitors capture the enthusiast's heart like the Wrangler has been able to do continuously for decades? That's the magic ingredient that you can't engineer in.

Supplier Dana has revealed that it's working on the driveline for the new Ford Bronco and that both the Bronco (and Ranger) will have "front and rear axles featuring our latest AdvanTEK gear technology." That means solid axle for both front and rear!
Dana also makes the solid axles for the Jeep Wrangler, and here's the kicker -- the Bronco's solid axles will also be made in the same new plant in Toledo, Ohio that will begin making axles for the next generation Wrangler (JL) later this year.
Sounds like the JL will have a decent competitor for once. Interesting the axles will be made by same manufacturer.Automotive News is reporting that the new Bronco will have solid axels. I would say thats pretty big news:
