|BroncoAZ||Iím looking forward to the Bronco, but realistically I probably wonít fit in the ranger chassis version. Iím debating a Raptor as my daily driver, but only the extra cab short bed model, not a crew cab version.|

I don't think they're going to be affordable enough to be worth buying one. Just like the new Jeep trucks, they are saying they are "PURPOSELY" charging an extra premium price for them when they come out, simply because they can. It's a Truck now so they can charge more. Just like all trucks now have more than doubled in price over the past few years.
2 recent examples I know of:
My BIL was truck shopping and went to the Chevy Dealer. He was looking at a the model he usually buys and nearly crapped his pants at the price. He said there was a brand new, nearly loaded Corvette sitting next to it that was $15,000.00 cheaper. He asked the salesman why he could buy a Corvette for so much less than a work truck and the salesman's response:
"More women are driving Trucks now. We can charge more for them since they are better equipped like cars."
A Doctor I work with, just the other showed me his New, fully equipped Ford Raptor he just bought. He was going to trade in his 08 F250 and buy another F250 to replace it but decided to get the Raptor instead because it cost just as much as the F250 would have.
If the new Bronco comes in under $40K in any trim level, I will be greatly surprised.
One more from me. I bought my 08 Ram Megacab new. Special Ordered from the dealer. Cost me about $34,000. Awhile back I went on the build and price website to build as close to my truck now,............
Before delivery. I'll probably never buy another new truck ever again.

|Scoop||If it's truly capable I will trade in my '17 Rubicon daily driver for the new Bronco. May have to wait for a Raptor version if they actually do that! But not holding my breath!|

|Wrencher61||Back when I still fixed cars and trucks for a living full time I used to catch some flak from older guys about my tendency to recommend oriental brands because of their build quality and reliability. Now that is well known to be true. Sadly, most of those old guys are dead now....used to know an old guy who was in the Bataan Death March...pretty sure he would never buy a Jap product,...wouldnít blame Ďim...but time goes by. My dad had a Ď78 dodge truck, maybe Ď79. Nothing but trouble, burnt valves and crappy carburetor and crappy everything...finally he got a Toyota and I didnít have to be helping him constantly... that old guy who called Metric things ugly names , (silly #%*•Ä millimeters),( and worse ), finally had an older vehicle he could afford that wasnít constantly broken. He tought me SO much about dealing with messed-up threads and broken bolt extraction and just plain sitting back and relaxing when youíre stumped with a problem and just have a cigarette and think instead of doing something irreversible...miss him sometimes...|

|445 FE Bronco||Seems you canít touch anything decent for less than 70 grand thees days so it will be priced accordingly. I like the Audi or Mercedes coup, maybe someday if I win the lottery LOL. I like the Ford SD but it is 100 grand like holy crap I could build a house for that. I just donít understand how anyone can afford a new vehicle thees days, unless gas attendants make 400 grand a year now and I did not know it? Of course minimum wage is going to 20 bucks an hour over a 5 year period now so yeah the dollar is worth squat now.|

|makersneat||I'll be shopping for a DD next year. If Ford let's me down with a watered down rendition of the Bronco then I don't know what to buy. I hate crossovers. I do like the 4Runner but man everyone's got one and they are damn expensive.|

|445 FE Bronco||It will be a hardtop four door guaranteed.|

I still don't believe they're going to make a "Bronco"..
for everything that you can say about a Jeep, at least the product has stayed pretty consistent, albeit with improvements..not expecting that whatever Ford trots out to be even remotely close to something I'd consider buying..if it is I'll happily eat my words..

Probably eventually. Depends. Waiting for a Baja edition or something....they'll probably call or the raptor bronco.
Wish they would do a turbo diesel edition but that's the longest of long shots.

|Weber||Not really because the new Ranger frame is much larger than the rangers of recent past, we have pics comparing the new ranger to a bricknose and a newer f150 in another thread...|

Why can't we get something like this? Sick of Toyotas just kicking the crap out of Fords... but these things last forever. Maybe a little beefier with a removable top. This is what the competition is putting out for the same customers. Yes.... less than $40,000 would be nice.

|PowerB||In the words of Bob Dylan.. "Oh the times, they are a changin'." It still has my interest piqued, but I need to see it in person first. I would also prefer that they stick closer to a more truck-like Bronco, but im afraid that's not necessarily going to be the case. Im sure its going to cost a pretty penny as well.|

Not this guy...
In my opinion, the new "Bronco" is just gonna be a H3 with a Ford logo and Bronco label slapped on it.
Since '78, the Bronco has been a shortened F-100 or F-150 with full frame with the exception of the bed area.
What they are going to produce is not really gonna be a Bronco....
