I wonder if they will use the bronco as the basis for the next gen Ranger...

If they made that with a coyote and great handling it would be hard to resist.

Yep, but it’ll probably have a 3.5L ecoboost (not bad to drive but terrible exhaust note) and mediocre handling.

Looks too soft. I feel the same way about the current ranger too fwiw.

I feel the main competitor for the Everest is the 4-runner, which is much more angular and masculine looking.

The original still looks cartoonishly good. Low expectations for this Bronco. Very low.

I'm thinking Armada, QX80, & Sequoia when I see the softer lines - not 4Runner. I know it's smaller than those, but that's what I see in the design language, which may helpit sell when trying to make it seem like some sort of luxury (mall-crawling/rug rat hauling) SUV and not for it's offroad capability.

Quote:
Every once in a while, a set of spy photos comes across our desks that force a double take. Or, in the case of the photos you see just above, a triple or quadruple take. We still can't say with certainty that we know what we're looking at here, other than the fact that it was screwed together by engineers at Ford, but we'll make some educated guesses — and they all involve the exciting word "Bronco."

We'll start with the obvious. Most of the bodywork comes from an F-150 Raptor, including the bulging fenders, the aggressive front fascia, and the flared truck bed. In profile, it's possible to just make out blue-topped Fox Shox ahead of the rear wheels, just like you'd find on a Raptor and confirming that it's not based on the Ranger platform, which has a different rear shock configuration. But that's not the end of the story — this mule, or prototype, or whatever it is, is much shorter than even the stubbiest Raptor's 133-inch wheelbase.

More to the point, it's shorter than any F-150, period. Ford doesn't offer any configuration of the F-150 with a single-cab and a short bed. The shortest wheelbase F-150 overall is the single cab with the 6.5-inch bed, at 122.4 inches, and this looks like its wheelbase is more than a foot shorter. We think it's unlikely Ford will produce a single-cab, short-bed F-150 Raptor. And this clearly isn't the Ranger-based Bronco we've seen in other spy shots. Which leads us to the exciting but slightly confusing prospect that this could actually be a prototype for a new full-size Bronco.

Ford has previously said it wants to build a family of Broncos, including the Ranger-based Bronco and the "Baby Bronco" crossover (that could be called the Bronco Scout). But we haven't heard anything serious about a full-size Bronco in recent memory. Ford hasn't sold a full-size Bronco in America since 1996. While it's not beyond the realm of possibility that Ford has such a vehicle in the works, we're left with lots of questions.

Whatever we're looking at, it certainly looks intriguing and we can't wait to find out what Ford's plans are for this vehicle.

yeah, I expect it to be a hit. Too bad you have to buy it from a Ford dealer.

Is it though? My neighbors Jeep just bolted on a log. Eventually the bark fell off and he had to tighten the bolts up again. Used pine so it would still pass 5mph law

2021 Ford Bronco Engine Tipped By Canadian Tire Store

One of the most highly anticipated new Ford models in a long time is the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco. We know that there will be a version of the truck that is based on the Ford Ranger. A Canadian tire website called CanadianTire.ca has caused a bit of a stir with Bronco fans when it was recently discovered that it had added the 2021 Bronco to its website as a drop-down list option for choosing wheels and tires.

The drop down calls out the “2021 Ford Truck Bronco, 4-140 with a 2.3L DOHC.” Whether or not Ford has given details early to the aftermarket so parts can be ready for the Bronco when it launches or if the website is adding a place holder for the vehicle we don’t know. We do expect that Ford is eyeing a two-vehicle strategy for the new 2021 Ford Bronco and expect a two-vehicle approach from the start. With that in mind, we would expect the Ranger-based vehicle to be the “baby” Bronco expected to be called the Bronco Scout likely making this a place holder that is incorrectly named.

We have seen a few Ford Bronco test mules, and while initially the test mule wearing the Ford Ranger bodywork was thought to be the 2021 Ford Bronco, the thought now is that is the so-called baby Bronco. The larger version that has been spied wearing modified Ford F-150 Raptor bodywork is thought to be the actual full-size Ford Bronco. The baby Bronco is expected to get the same 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that the Ford Ranger uses, matching the engine listed on CanadianTire.ca, but we doubt the name the website uses.

Sometimes I think the US market is the short bus of the large markets. At least bring the everest while you finish the bronco, get the jump on GM, you know theyll bring a colo-everest too. GM got the jump on you with the truck already....

GM always copies Ford. That is the natural order of things. Mustang then Camaro, El Caballero then El Camino. Bronco then blazer.

But in this case you are right, the blazer is here now, but it is a laughable and the door is left way open for Ford to pounce with a real off roader.
