Now here is the next question.


Does anyone thing the revitalized interest in the Bronco, especially when they launch, will help our resale values go up even further? Or will it be the opposite and make it tank because people want new stuff.


I guess that also depends if the new Bronco is a sales success or not.

I'm hoping people see the sticker price and say "F THAT!", then come and buy my 90' and restore it for a fraction of the price. But I am curious what it does to the market.

just my thoughts...

folks who can afford it... will. folks who can not, will turn to our rigs. 1st gens... they already cost damn near what the new one will, so no big change for the classic crowd.

and... IF THE TOP DOESN'T POP, IT'S NOT A BRONCO!

Look what happened to the 'beloved' Toyota FJ Cruiser.

The original icon was bigger than the Bronco yet when the FJ Cruiser came out it lasted only 8, low-sales, years.

In 2018 Ford says they will put a diesel in their F150. Could that 3.5 Powerstroke find its way under the hood of the 2020 Bronco?

i like the rugged off road vehicle for city commuting and gravel roads and boulders sales pitch
my minivan can do that!

sounds like a pansy truck to me
it doesn't say anything about mud pits, dune running, mountain climbing etc

heard it was size of the dodge Durango/boxy jeep Cherokee
I would be really surprized if the roof comes off, my bet it is just like new version of the bronco II

Well as of today, Ford is officially putting an EcoBoost Diesel in the F150, so that much is coming true. Don't hold your breath for a diesel powered Bronco. Not a chance in 2020, if ever.


Some other interesting tidbits from BOF:
  • The Bronco is going after the Jeep Wrangler
  • Design based on 77 model
  • Expect at least a rugged no-thrills model (hose out the floor deal)
  • 4-door primary model, 2-door model under consideration
  • Raptor becoming a Sub-brand (Bronco Raptor, Ranger Raptor, F150 Raptor, etc
  • SVT/ Ford Performance model in addition to RB?

I suppose it is just much like the Jeep wagoner incarnation, it started off as a tank and ended up a beer can. Let's face it things aren't going to revert back to the way they used to be, things like leather seats, blue tooth and automatic opening doors sell. Strait axles, big V8s, big tires and rubber floor liners don't. I have to admit having a Mercedes would be nice but I would trash it anyhow with what I do so a cushy vehicle just is not practical for me, an old pickup fills the bill fine for me. I am not sure how many people on this site would have the income to throw down on a $60,000 + vehicle but I certainly do not. I find it hard to get excited over something I can't get under the hood and play around with, I would take that big wad of cash if hypathetically I had it and build my own vehicle to fit my own desires rather than buy a cookie cutter knock off vehicle that everyone else has. I bought a Jeep Wrangler and drove it a couple years and discovered that I was driving a bland vehicle regaurdless of what I did to it. I look now at parking lots and one out of every five vehicles look just like my old Wrangler and I don't even notice them anymore, they have become the VW bug of 4WDs. It's kinda sad that the old uniqueness of cars and trucks have gone to the wayside and you can't tell the difference between a KIA, Ford, Chevy or Dodge anymore, they all look the same to me.

It would be awesome if it had the same , or similar enough, offroad capabilities as the Toyota FJ Cruiser.


I'm afraid it might end up like the 'new' T-Bird; a very sporty body with the performance of a worn out Ford Escort .
