I had the misfortune of watching the movie Rampage on one of the cable channels the other day, and The Rock was driving a new Bronco in the movie. It looked good! Probably the only good thing about the movie. I guess that "leak" of the new Bronco flew under the radar in terms of the timing of the reveal, considering the pandemic and all.

I like the windowed doors. Wish more sports cars would do that outside the Senna.

I dig it, the Black Diamond looks like a stripper version for people that want to modify, which is what Jeep refuses to indulge. I hope Ford kicks the **** out of them and brings Wrangler prices back to earth.

I like the drivetrain options. The styling does nothing for me ......the stuffed wheel well look just throws off the looks even more on top of it. Looks kinda like they were going for the brodozer look. The fender flares could have been done better too IMO.

They did do some useful/cool things like the phone rail and hydraulic sway Barr disconnects.

How, by making an alternative that's almost exactly as expensive?

Do I really need to explain this?

Competition in a segment that Jeep has owned by itself is good for the consumer.

They are apparently removable, and super easy to do so.

It doesn't look as natural without doors as the Wrangler does because you can see the inner door frame. Looks like the two door doesn't come with a soft top. And no manual with the larger engine. I believe that on the Wrangler, manual can be had in all trims.
I want to see what a base 2 door looks like.

Same. I would take the cheapest model with manual and just add those doors.

Yup, that two door is awesome. Would consider one in the future.

But ultimately, it’s not really going to make a huge difference because it’s not a cheaper product. It might force them to make a better Wrangler, but it’s not going to force them to drop prices.

In the segment they’re targeting, it’s not about value. It’s about capability. Mayyybe Jeep might release a true stripper model to grab the folks who just want the open air experience, but I highly doubt you’ll see the Rubicon become cheaper.

Yeah, reading up on the specs, they definitely knew their target demographic. You're going to see a crapload of these things.

2 door or four door Bronco. 4 door Bronco Sport with fixed hard top only for the soccer mom mall crawlers (Looks like targeting LandRover with the sport).

Now I know why they dropped most cars, they put most everything into this, and I can't say I blame them for this, after seeing what's involved.

I like it a lot, but ... I don't offroad, and I put a premium on on-road sportiness and handling... even then, I really like their implementation and careful thought in making it. My only question, so far, is why didn't they put the 2.7 in the Spork? Only 1.5 or 2.0. May be an option once the configurator is online?

Bronco Sport only gets 1.5EB or 2.0EB probably since it's more of a mall crawler, soccer mom type vehicle. I saw nothing on the site about any other engines (yet). Bronco gets 2.3EB or 2.7EB.

Riiiight, I was looking at the 2/4 dr versions, not the sport - The sport is a transverse part-time AWD job; it's basically an escape with a boxy body.

I really like a lot of what Ford did with this vehicle; clearly effort was put in to innovate and not just rest on the Bronco name. I'm not a fan of turbo only, or that the manual is only being offered on the I4T, but I've said it before, if manufacturers build vehicles I want, they will go out of business.
