New Baby Bronco Will Be Called Bronco Adventurer

Recommended Posts

 Luckily it won't be called Maverick.

Adventurer was a model line for Dodge trucks in the 60's and 70's, possibly into the early 80's.

Terrible name. Too many “er” sounds at the end of adventurer. Maverick is 100x better. Scout was the perfect name for this. Wonder why they didn’t go that route? The article says they haven’t even trademarked adventurer yet so there’s still hope that’s not the name.

Yeah Maverick just worked...

 

"Adventurer" is boring and forgettable. I hope this isn't official or factual. 
If not Maverick than something else! Hell Bronco Sport (though it was a trimline) and Bronco II (though it has some bad history) would be better choices than Bronco Adventurer.... ehhhh

I bet most people in the baby broncos target market don’t even know what that is. The escape was also called maverick, so it’s not a huge stretch to call another compact suv maverick as well.

Never cared for Maverick. Mostly because my grandfather had an ugly 4 door maverick.  Scout would've been better than Adventurer.

Scout is the best name and it definitely fits on a small, rugged, off road capable vehicle.

Bronco Scout works as well! I'm going to give Jim a call...

😶

My guess now is that the Bronco pickup will be called that.

I'm meh on the name.  Seems too long, I liked Scout better, but perhaps they'll use that on another model.  I could take or leave Maverick.

It conjures up 3 images for me and 2 aren't good (for a vehicle).  I'll let you figure out the good one.

It would make more sense the base Bronco would be the 2 door. Maybe they'll have the different trim levels and different door levels.

No that's way too confusing. Just do it the same way Jeep does it with the Wrangler, there's no reason it needs to be more complicated than that.

Sorry I was talking about his list as the Bronco being a 2 door not a 4 door and that reminded me of how other manufactures make their trim levels. I agree they should do it how jeep does it.

The article in the OP implied Bronco Scout is still coming as a even smaller vehicle.

I'm not sure how it will play out but Bronco Adventurer is not as catchy as Bronco Scout.

If the product is good, the name will catch on. If the product sucks, the name won't save it.

Based on what I've heard and what I know to be true about it, without being able to go into much detail I can tell you it definitely won't suck

I liked the Maverick. The two door would have made a better Mustang than the Mustang II did while being related to the generation one Mustang. The four door should have just used the Falcon name and considering what other cars looked like at the time, the four door Maverick was in my opinion better looking. Can anyone honestly say the Plymouth Volare looked stunning?

And to make matters worse, here's what the Pinto should have looked like instead of the blob it was.

This could have made a nicer Mustang II.

In deference to the late, great James Garner...I like this Maverick more than yours....

My parents inherited my grandfather’s 4 door poop brown Maverick and I was forced to drive it in high school.  Therefore the coupe doesn’t exist to me!
