Looks different. I like the grille. All in all, it doesn't look that bad, but I don't like the way the drivetrain is set up. It seems like everything is going to front wheel drive these days.

"The Intelligent 4WD System uses a fully computer-controlled clutch that engages the rear wheels only as needed. In normal conditions, the Bronco concept is driven by its front wheels." - that's gay.

"Using the latest common-rail fuel-injection technology, the 128 horsepower (130 PS) engine delivers peak torque of 244" - 128 hp??!?!!? that's nothin, especially if the curb wieght is 3100 lbs. and they shouldn't give it a little 2.0 four banger. that's just not right even if it is turbo.

i'm still not sold on the new bronco. if it does get to production it will not be a truck for romping. it will end up slammed to the ground with 24 spinners by every g-unit wearing, airforce one stomping baller in the show car scene.

Yea, I always hoped they would bring it back one day. I guess my vision was a bit different though. They seem to totally have forgotten about the fullsize bronco in the design. I was kinda hopin to see the engineers come up with a Bronco smaller than our fullsize, yet a bit bigger than the old ones. Would love to have a diesel for torque, longevity, mileage, but a 4.3 6cylinder was more what I was thinking...perhaps 230 hp, 350 lb ft. and mileage around 15/21!!!! It would have the lines of the truck we all love, fantastic approach/departure angles, good solid components from the factory, removable roof/rollbar, winch/locker/gearing meant for use. Combine the old bronco and the fullsize in classic Ford style.

But, what we got was a front wheel drive, computer controlled all wheel drive, mini box that represents the old bronco because it was kinda boxy. BOXY NO = BEEFY, Try again Ford. :boxing :twak :lowblow

its based on a "brazilian built Ford EcoSport" or something, F******CK that

if i had the money to buy a 2004 vehicle and i wanted a bronco that bad, i had in mind buying a f250 extended cab, taking off the bed, cutting the rear of the cab off, and welding a bronco body to the back :goodfinge
