I would be ok with an FJ(ish) new Bronco. They work really well in the dunes and are at least different. I also like its a 4 door but looks like a 2 door. Much like the newer extended cab trucks. The FJ's also had real options, at least the TRD edition did.

Here's a bit of industry cliche: Copying (A design) is the sincerest form of flattery.

History lesson on Ford copying successful designs:
My favorite race cars of all time are Ford's historical mid-'60s race cars, the GT 40/MK II/MK VI, was a direct design copy of a Lola race car. Furthermore; The Shelby Cobra and Daytona Cobra Coupe that were raced under Ford factory sponsorship were a collection of British designs (As well as Ford parts) put together to make race cars for specific race classes.

There's nothing wrong with copying a good/sound design.

I wondered about the Ranger and if it was something similar to the Canyon and Dakotas in size but with the F150 powertrains.

I could possibly see getting something like that. I still have my old 92 Dakota in the family.

You're missing the best part of this.

In 2020, we can look down our noses at these new Bronco owners the same way the Early Bronco owner do us.

AND!

Now we can finally say: "That's not a REAL BRONCO."

Exactly my thoughts. Then our values will go up even further on our real Broncos as the appetite for people's schematic of a Bronco is not satisafied by the "new" Bronco and will therefore flock to the 78-96. That is, if anyone is selling.....

Apparently, internal conflicts were happening at Ford because some people felt this new vehicle shouldn't be called the Bronco. That isn't a vote of confidence.

If Ford made an actual two door only, V8 solid axle front/rear and removable roof Bronco, how many people here would actually go out and buy it NEW? Keep in mind, it would probably cost at a minimum 40 grand.

4 door JK's have been selling like they're on fire since they came out, of course this is going to be a four door.

Besides, the early bronco wasn't based on a fullsize pickup.

Where have you been, in a vacuum? They've been calling for a new ranger based vehicle for over a year now.

People have no idea what a Bronco even is... was. I get asked a lot "what kind of truck is that?" The guy at the tire shop that mounted my BFG's had no idea how to open the tailgate even when i lowered the window. Ford can slap a Bronco name badge on a mini-van and people will applaud for the name alone. They have no idea what the linage is and god forbid they get the rims dirty.

A mid-sized four wheel drive four door off road "capable" vehicle ALREADY EXISTS in Ford's lineup. They call it the Expedition. No longer the same as a full size truck. Why would the build a completely new vehicle to directly compete with an existing product? Everyone just needs to calm down and relax a bit, let us at least see some "official" Ford details, renderings, pictures, or specs before we start this all over again. I mean, for crying out loud, we have been hearing about a new Bronco for what seems like a hundred years. New "Bronco" is confirmed. Let's just relish in that for a while, take a deep breath, drink a beer, and relax. Just calm down, back away from the worry wagon, and see what comes. I agree, as do most, with Pepe's sentiment that the top needs to come off. Other than that, I see no reason to suspect that ANY unofficial news or details are just exactly what we have been hearing for at least 10 years now.
