that vehicle is not even close to a real production vehicle, when they release one that actually has a chance of being released to the public, then i will comment on it

I dont think it looks bad, at first glance it made me think of a land rover or something. Its like with all the other car companies going nuvo-retro with all their styling and concepts. Chrysler has the 300 series, Ford with the GT and this Bronco, Chevy has the Nomad, Toyota had the Fj Cruiser. I'd rather buy that an Escape, though I dont know what the dimensions are right now.

I already responded to this in another thread, but I'm more than happy to bitch about it again. :thumbup

This quote is from MSNBC's web site about the concept Bronco debut.

"The Bronco concept unveiled Sunday is a two-door, rugged-looking sport utility based on the Brazilian-built Ford EcoSport. Ford executives have said the EcoSport could be brought to the United States as a competitor to the Chevrolet Aveo, a Korean-made car targeting entry-level buyers."

This concept is not even a bastardized Expedition. It's being designed to compete with what I assume Ford thinks the Explorer is supposed to be competing with?

A knock off Brazilian import is exactly what this country does not need. As described it is nothing but another junk soccer mom car. The most off road action it would ever see is someone's dirt driveway.

If FoMoCo wants wants to bring back the name Bronco. It should be a vehicle that is a companion to the 4WD F-150. FoMoCo needs to build a Bronco that rivals or surpasses where Jeep is taking their 4wd's. Let's face it. The American automotivce industry is crap.

If Ford, Dodge and Chevrolet are not careful, Toyota is going to move up and on to where they are the only competition for Jeep. If Ford is serious about bringing back the Bronco name, then they really ought to bring back what the Bronco was. Make it the leading competitor for the "trail rated" Jeep!

If they can't do that, they need to just leave it alone.

Gave my opinion too. I said put a V8 in it, a removable top and make it as capable as a Jeep.

Ohhh no........now Ford is actually talking about putting it into production.
I wish they would make a fullsize Bronco based on the new F-150. Just continue where they left off in '96, but modern. Anybody have any photochops of such a truck?

Anyway, here is a link to the bad news.
