Yes, I have an irrational disdain towards them.
Agreed.

My Jeep will be somewhere around 150k miles by the time this is released, so V6 or V8 + removable roof and good suspension travel and I'm sold.
I don't even care if it has IFS.

Generally the Wrangler's lower tow capacity is due to the suspension load capacity and engine options. Not towing well is related to the short wheelbase and lower total vehicle weight allowing the tail to wag the dog more often.

Jeep sells 190k Wranglers a year and it really has no true competition. There's room for at least two in that segment.

I'd sort of like to see something just as capable as the Wrangler, but better put together with a higher quality interior.

Hybrid powertrain planned

Ford has said a hybrid powertrain will be offered on the new Bronco. An electric motor's low-end torque could definitely aid tough low-speed off-roading situations, and an electric power take-off feature would prove ideal for camping. Four-wheel drive will almost certainly be standard.

It really does seem like Ford is bringing the fight the Jeep and I'm looking forward to seeing how they do.

By the time the Bronco is released the Wrangler should have a 4 cylinder, 6 cylinder, diesel, and Hybrid, so I hope Ford is looking at a V8 option.

doubt they will bring a V8 to the table - more likely a turbo 2.3, bi-turbo 2.7, and range topping bi-turbo 3.5. Full eco-boost lineup, no NA motors.

The way the US is increasing its share of the oil market, we should V8 all the things.

The Everest is a nice masculine SUV and been out overseas for years with TDI.
Divide by 50 to get USD. Think be even lower here as no taxes added.

Nope. The Everest is a mini Sequoia. It's a lame SUV design in a sea of lame SUV design. The retro Bronco in that image above is actually cool and looks better executed than Toyota's meh attempt with the FJ Cruiser.

In our family it's the exact opposite.

My wife is the type of person that thinks a vintage Land Rover or old Suburban would make an excellent DD

Ford Puma Trademark Application Could Be For Baby Bronco
The mountain-dwelling cat might be a perfect fit for the little off-roader.

Chris Bruce
Ford will allegedly revive the Puma model name, but it won't be for a small sports coupe this time because the moniker will possibly appear on the Blue Oval's baby Bronco. The evidence for the company potentially using this trademark comes from filings first discovered by Go Auto.

2020 Ford Bronco leaked images
3 Photos

There are two trademark filings from Ford for Puma that the World Intellectual Property Office currently lists as "Pending." One of them applies to the Australian market as of October 26, and the other is for New Zealand as of November 1. Both applications cover "motor land vehicles, namely automobiles, pick-up trucks, utility trucks, four-wheel drive vehicles and sports utility vehicles, and parts thereof."

The Bronco and its baby brother are coming:

The original Ford Puma was a small sports coupe that launched in 1997. The platform came from the Fiesta, but Ford gave the little car a sleek body. Production ended in 2001.

Further research shows that Ford still holds the trademark on Puma for automobiles in Europe through 2025. However, the automaker doesn't yet appear to control the moniker in the United States.

Because we know that the baby Bronco is coming to America, it's possible that the company might be considering using a different model name there. Alternatively, the recentness of the applications in Australia, the Blue Oval might be preparing a filing for the U.S. soon.

Previous trademark applications from Ford suggested the possibility of the baby Bronco using the Maverick or Timberline model names for the vehicle. According to Go Auto, the Blue Oval has withdrawn its filing for the Maverick moniker in Australia, suggesting the automaker might have decided to pick a different name.

Whatever Ford calls it, we know that the baby Bronco shares its platform with the next-gen Ford Focus and shares suspension pieces with the next Escape. The company promises the vehicle is “designed to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends."

Puma trademark registration could point to badge for Ford’s Baby Bronco


FORD appears to be preparing to resurrect the Puma badge, lodging a fresh global trademark application under that name for a future model that conceivably could be the upcoming compact SUV dubbed – in the absence of any official name – the Baby Bronco.

The company previously used the Puma name on a Fiesta-based small coupe made in Germany between 1997 and 2002, but as Ford is largely walking away from passenger cars, especially in North America, it is unlikely to be planning a new version of that slow-selling sportscar.

Lodged on October 26 by Ford Motor Company’s head office in Dearborn, Michigan, the trademark application specifically mentions “four-wheel drive vehicles and sports utility vehicles”.

For Australia, the application has been lodged with the Federal Government’s IP Australia.

Ford earlier this year confirmed that it was planning an off-road-focussed compact SUV, showing a sketch of the car in a briefing about its future model strategy.

The vehicle will sit below the all-new Bronco that is also in the pipeline for launch in the next year or two. The Bronco will be based on the Australian-developed T6 platform that underpins the Ranger ute and related Everest SUV.

Like the Bronco, the Baby Bronco is expected to be a more hard-core off-roader than other Ford soft-roader SUVs such as the Escape/Kuga and EcoSport, and will likely target the market segment dominated by smaller Jeep models such as the Renegade Trailhawk.

Some American pundits have speculated that the Baby Bronco might be called Maverick, as that name has been trademarked in the US.

Maverick was used by Ford in Australia for re-badged Nissan GQ Patrols in the 1980s and 1990s.

However, the original 1984 trademark for Maverick in Australia has been withdrawn by Ford and not renewed, making it unlikely that the name will be used globally any time soon.

Speculation about the Baby Bronco reached fever pitch in the US media earlier this week when images of a Ford SUV – purportedly taken at a Ford dealer conference in Las Vegas – were published by Off-Road.com.

Some sections of the media speculated that the images were of the Bronco, while others suggested it looked smaller, and so could be of Bronco’s baby sibling. Ford was not saying.

Ford’s top dealers got a sneak peek at a prototype 2020 Ford Bronco last month, and the details—revealed by participants to Automotive News—sound glorious. Some highlights: The Bronco will be available with two or four doors, it will have a removable top and doors, and it will be part of a new family of off-road vehicles.

We’ve been waiting for the 2020 Ford Bronco since The Blue Oval brand revealed at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show that it was reviving the iconic nameplate. And while details of the upcoming off-roader have been scarce—save for a teaser, an apparent mule, and some info from sources claiming to have knowledge on the project—we’ve now got juicy information thanks to reports from folks who attended what Automotive News describes as a “gathering of [Ford’s] top-selling dealers” in February.
Quote:
Dealers, after relinquishing their phones, were shown an early build of a two-door Bronco and told that a four-door version also would be offered, according to multiple sources in the room. The Bronco is designed to be customizable, with a removable hard top and removable doors that can be stored in the vehicle’s cargo area, the sources said. The side mirrors will be attached to the front pillars so they remain in place when the doors are taken off, unlike the Jeep Wrangler — one of the chief rivals Ford is targeting with its Bronco revival.
Quote:
Those in the room said the SUV has a retro design, featuring a rectangular grille, round headlights and the word “Bronco” stamped across the front.
Quote:
Another revelation from this dealer meeting is that Ford is allegedly building a “’family’ of rugged off-road vehicles” according to Automotive News’ sources—a family that will include the two and four-door Bronco (set to launch in late 2020), the Baby Bronco (set to come out a few months prior to the Bronco), and a “small unibody pickup” (set for 2021 or later).
Give me some power and some decent suspension travel and this might be my next vehicle please dont F this up Ford......please!
