  1. One area ford wants to get into is accessories on its trucks, the aftermarket makes a fortune on customising trucks and now Ford wants in
  2. So this is Ford anticipating more activity in the mod area, let’s hope so anyway
  3. I said super low first gear, if it just more overdrives I would have said that.
  4. New 7-speed manual with super low first gear
  5. That was me trash talking but seriously, Wrangler and Bronco are going to be completely different vehicles that have quite a bit of overlap in the middle, the difference is at the extreme ends.. and I mean challenging off roading vs “Raptor” like attributes. You’re already seeing how Ranger is “not quite there” in more challenging off road situations compared to Wrangler but, in most other situations that matter to the majority of buyers the new Bronco (and Ranger) will reset the bar. How well it does in more challenging off road if is anyone’s guess on how far Ford is prepared to go in that direction. A base 2.3 EB kind of matches Wrangler’s V6 performance in open running, from there Bronco engine options should leave Wrangler a bit on the breathless side.....
  6. Bronco and NG Ranger as brothers under the skin, the frame design and power trains similar but different..... maybe whatever high series /HP engineering can be done once and shared......
  7. Wasn’t there something in the UAW contract about a Bronco accessory area or words to that effect?
  8. Best to say what you think and leave it at that.

    Future Edge Replacement

    Stock prices are a lagging indicator, they don’t change until Ford actually delivers something that makes the price increase. All of that because Ford has a plan for increased profits that take years to materialise because the last plan was going in the wrong direction

    Future Edge Replacement

    Add to that $11 billion sucked out of existing product development to go chase EVs AVs and connectivity, add another $11 billion to reform Europe and ROW products Ford is still clinging to F Series paying for everything else that barely covers its own replacement cost.
  11. Did you mean Puma? There’s no automatic models until the end of 2020
  12. There is a two door, they just haven’t shown it yet.
  13. And it wasn’t that Ford lied to the UAW in 2015 contract, they suddenly realised the enormity of the project and how the US had to get the body styling right before anything could start. That 12 months was imo spent wisely and meant that the project then coincided with the start of next gen T6 where they had 100% input on what was wanted.

  15. Gosh, the way folks on the internet have been teeing off at the four door, it’s no wonder why they’re not showing the two door, some might start calling it an Ecosport FFS.
