  1. Indicating the NG Ranger will follow suit?
  2. Some full size GM wagons from the 70’s offered this clamshell tailgate - glass disappeared into the roof and the bottom section slid underneath. (I know this has nothing to do with Bronco but it shows some of the “interesting” engineering that went wagons).
  3. Accord and Camry sold in large part to their reputation (deserved or not) for superior quality relative to the competition. Escape doesn’t have that. I disagree that Escape “is the boring segment for people buying appliances” but it appears Ford is banking on that being the case.
  4. You may be right but I don’t think any market demographic will react favorably to bland.
  5. The 2013 Escape was not bland and boring. You’re OK with a this type of an effort? I’ll bet you that Escape sales will suffer significantly without substantial rebates.
  6. Kudos to Hackett and Farley for transforming a “blandly styled but competent enough, absolutely generic” vehicle, but what happened with Escape? Those words describe it to a tee. What excuse is there to allow such a mediocre effort to see the light of day when it should be one of Ford’s best sellers?
  7. Good question. I thought the Baby Bronco was supposed to be released about 6 mos. after the Escape which would be February 2020.
  8. Ford has indicated the Mach E (or whatever it will be named) will not be available until late 2020.
  9. How about negotiating a deal to trade the EV for a nice ICE vehicle that doesn’t force you to waste half a day charging every time you want to get 150 miles down the road?
  10. I wonder how much of the rapid draw down of ‘19 stocks was due to the large price increases on the ‘20.

    Fusion styled crossover?

    I see. It’ll be interesting to see how well it works in the F150.

    Fusion styled crossover?

    You don’t think the hybrid systems will be virtually identical on both vehicles?

    Fusion styled crossover?

    If a Bronco hybrid isn’t any more efficient than the Explorer hybrid, I don’t see much reason to offer it.

    Fusion styled crossover?

    Yes. I’m referring to the “Fusion Active Width” vs “C2 wide chassis” bzcat mentioned.

    Fusion styled crossover?

    I would think a Fusion “replacement” would be on the same chassis as the NG Edge. The current Fusion is just 1 inch narrower than the Edge.
