Video of an 'Experimental Bronco Prototype' being tested off-road with pro off-road racer Brad Lovell behind the wheel, gives us an early look at what to expect!

"Ford teams up with pro off-road racer Brad Lovell to test the Ford Bronco in Johnson Valley.* *Experimental Bronco Prototype. Not final vehicle. Professional driver on closed course. Do not attempt. When off-roading, always know your terrain and use appropriate safety gear."

Ford Press Release:
OFF-ROAD TESTING THE ALL-NEW FORD BRONCO IN THE WILD
DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 10, 2020 – While enthusiastic customers await the return of the upcoming Ford Bronco 4x4, engineers are hard at work ensuring it is ready to take on the wild. In the high desert of California, Ford experts are busy testing and proving out the all-new Bronco’s powertrain and rugged chassis, which is based on the company’s fully boxed, body-on-frame global T6 architecture, in an experimental prototype vehicle.

In the Mojave Desert’s Johnson Valley, home to such punishing motorsports series as King of the Hammers, the Bronco prototype is being pushed to its limits off-road in grueling conditions crawling up rocks and racing across sand.

Bronco was built exactly for this.

The all-new sixth generation of America’s original “sports utility vehicle,” makes its world premiere this spring.

Ford is messing with us IMO. Both this and the Bronco R have been disclosed to be “chassis and powertrain parts” but nothing else. What the hell are they hiding???

So I for sure see ifs, and I’m pretty sure I see a solid rear axle with links....

As for what to expect, Ford has been tight-lipped as they should for now. This is all anyone can count on at the moment:

"While the automaker didn’t say much about the highly anticipated model, they noted “experts are busy testing and proving out the all-new Bronco’s powertrain and rugged chassis in an experimental prototype vehicle.” The company also reiterated the body-on-frame SUV will ride on the fully boxed T6 architecture which underpins the Ranger."

I don't mind it though, come Spring, we'll see the Bronco in full and hopefully sometime from now leading up to the big event.
