    Re: Ford Bronco


    I had the Bronco II for awhile, it was mostly shit but it did have a lot of room. It could make a better than original comeback as an e-Bronco or whatever shit name they want to give it.

    I had a first gen explorer. I’m assuming they were pretty close.

Dodge/RAM cabs are fairly roomy) short or middle length bed full size pickup running at a normal car height. Think like a Ford Flex is relative to an Expedition but with a bed and two fewer doors.

    New Rangers are the same size as a late 80's early 90's full size truck. There really are no options for a small or midsize truck these days. They are all either large or extra large and people call the large the mid size and the extra large the full size.

    I thought reg cabs and short wheelbases were going away due to gas mpg requirements based on wheelbase.
    That theory doesn’t really hold water I realize, with the two door bronco and defender coming out, but maybe they go by the longest of the model, ie the four doors?

    Would you want convertible capability or no?



    Or a wider Honda Element?

    Porsche is a manufacturer. They don't make a 4-door 911 SUV and Chevy has plenty of SUV's to offer.

    Convertible pickups are silly LOL, Dodge Dakota Sport. How would a wider Honda Element address these needs? A Ridgeline would be closer but they are four doors and probably wouldn't look all that good with a lowered ride height.

    Kinda like full size trucks. Lowered single rear wheel, short, med or long bed crew cabs don't look all that good. Drop a dually crew cab with any length bed on the frame rails though and things get drastically better in the appearance department.

    Oh really? They were late 21. Did you just get an email from Ford about the sound deadening and other stuff?

    No I haven’t received an email yet.

    Dual top option and mod top is pushed to 22.

    First editions will not be available with anything but a MIC top, so the people who ordered the mod top to match their black interior either have to settle for the carbonized gray MIC, or “pick another series”.

    I’m really going to be bummed when 22 reveals an awesome dark green with a white hard top a la old fjs and d90s

    Re: Ford Bronco

    I had the MIC top picked all along so it didn't bother me much. And I fully anticipate some cool color combos for 22.

    A green has been confirmed and grabber yellow has been mentioned which almost looks hi viz on the mustang build and price.

    I think the "orange" is already pretty yellow. It sucks that all the high trim people are getting the MIC top now. That'll mean less for everyone else.

    That's because it's the bronco sport.

    Exactly. Lots of people that don't know the Bronco line are making that mistake. That's basically an Escape.

    Kind of annoying. Would have been easily avoided if they used a different name.

    I totally agree. Or bring the big Bronco out first, then add the Sport. Kind of like the old Bronco II was.

    Considering this is a big Bronco thread, that thing is hideous. Looks like something a farm boy took a Sawzall to so he could haul some hay.
