If the pics are real I like it but it also means no SFA so it's likely a poser. IF they put a great motor in it that would help it's shortcomings with many. So they can get to the trail faster on pavement but will get dusted on anything technical. Hope pics are wrong in this department.

I would not blink a eye if this were a FORD enthusiast form. What's concerning is this is a JEEP Wrangler forum and the views are for a FORD product.
I agree and I found his statement quite confusing. Can you imagine a bunch of Harley enthusiasts on a Harley forum having a thread talking about the new Honda Gold Wing coming out, no, ain't gonna happen!

If Honda quit making the Gold Wing for 20 years and then came out with a new one there wouldn't be a thread on it?

That's ridiculous.

LOL. I didn't care for any of the JL colors either. Not so much that I didn't like some of them, I just didn't want a bright color for a hunting vehicle. I really wanted that tan color the JK came in. I was all set to buy a tan JK when the JL hit the streets. Glad I have a JL, but still like the idea of a tan Jeep. I'm seriously thinking of wrapping my JL. Wrapping would serve two purposes: protection and the color I wanted.
I was holding out for gobi. I couldn’t wait any longer so I went white. I’m happy with the color ( or lack there of ). I live in AZ where white paint won’t burn you when you carelessly graze it with your unprotected skin in the summer.

It 100% looks like the Wrangler and a Land Rover Defenders love child!
You must be talking about Bronco sport (which is going against Renagate)
Real /fullsize bronco does not borrow any styling from wrangler or Landrover - it's pure 60s revival.

Side profile of the front of the big B might remind you of Disco 2, but that's because Disco 2 borrowed it from Broncon inthe first place.

I like it, but I bet its going to be between 40-60k and that's way more then I want to spend.

Nope, talking about the bronco pic. I definitely wouldn’t compare the beautiful wrangler to the bronco sport (no offence to it)

the actual bronco pic and NOT the sport is nice looking. And imo looks like a wrangler and defender put together.

Why is it concerning ? I'm an enthusiast period who likes all kinds of vehicles . My Wrangler and Mustang GT cohabitate in the same garage :)

Yup, I've owned in order:

1986 Chevy Van (Trans Air Conversion)
1994 Camaro V6
1999 Chrysler Sebring JXi Convertible
2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-v
2006 Honda S2000
1998 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 4WD
2007 JKUX
2011 Chevy Camaro 1SS
2008 Honda Element
2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium
2015 Chevy Silverado 4WD Dual Cab
2017 Mazda Miata RF
2017 Subaru WRX STi
1998 Pontiac Trans Am
2019 JLUR


So, I'm not very brand loyal - and I can tell you that from the above list the the Sebring and JKUX were terrible in quality and I said I'd never own another. The Cherokee was impressive for its age and what I paid, though. The only reason I went with a JLUR is because nobody else makes anything comparable where the doors and roof come off.

However, my mustang was the most impressive when it cam to fit, finish,and little attention to detail - user selectable steering stiffness, ability to change gauge and ambient lighting colors, etc. I am certainly not brand loyal, and if Ford does it right, I could cross over ;)

All I see is pure 60s revival, no jeep what's so ever. Might be difficult to see /understand complete design with a hood open for those who are design eliturate.

The more the four door silver Bronco picture gets passed around, the more the front end looks photoshopped. The silver body doesn’t seem to match the aesthetic environmental reflection of the entire black front.

Ive been a Ford owner my whole life, stopping when I get my 2020 jeep. The Bronco wont have appeal outside the off-road enthusiasts (people here) and will take a bit out of that market, But 90% of Wrangler owners this will not effect. Maybe some from Cherokee and Gladiator business and of course the other manufacturers too, but I think it will be a failure. The Wrangler is huge success because of the suburban driver.I dont say that hoping for failure, I like Ford but it failed before and I don't see what changed. My guess is they want Wranglers core business and they won't get it.

I want to see how they handle the convertible top. The Wrangler hard top is poorly designed. There shouldn't be markets for hoists and pulleys to get your top off. The Soft Top is better but could be more intuitive.
