Bronco and Bronco Sport World Premier-Who knows when!

Everything is different compared to CD2 Escape, the 330/Territory is longer, wider and longer wheelbase.

Could it be that Yusheng changed the old platform enough in size shape and toolkit that it's now unique?

 

I was remembering ford was sending the platform to JMC after escape production ended in the US.

 

Found an article here:

 

https://www.autoevolution.com/news/ford-maverick-to-be-produced-by-jiangling-motors-in-china-21803.html

 

Escape production ended in 2012. Landwind X7 production started in 2015. Seems kinda far, but who knows.

One problem it is going to have is that big C-pillar for visibility.  

Thank God for BLIS.

There's no way they're about to pull an FJ Cruiser?

Surely that thing has a purpose.... maybe the back opens up and converts into a pickup bed?

They're not sacrificing visibility for style points... I hope.

Something going on with the rear glass for sure.


Maybe there’s a large opening on the front of the roof that requires more than normal support on the back? Just guessing

I'm not gonna lie... I'd have to at least check this thing out if I went to the dealer to look at the big Bronco. Even in camo this thing looks good.

I'm actually going to go ahead and predict that a high-end version of this could sell very well!  If not a Lincoln Bronco... What about a a Lincoln Bronco Sport??  Maybe this could slot below the Aviator.

From the back and side views it kinda looks like the roof has several separate pieces... is that just because it's a mule?

 

There might be a surprise and the Bronco Sport might have a removable roof or something.

The roof looks solid all the way across on the profile view so I don’t think the roof will come off. Also, the antenna is pretty far back on the roof, so I don’t think the back will come off either. I think what you might be seeing are the panels of the lift gate where they meet the roof.

This isn't a mule, it's a full blown prototype

Thanks for digging up that link, we know that Ford and it's Chinese partners were reusing older Ford/Mazda platforms,

the fact that they're lengthened and widened with new top hats, different power trains and electrical systems can all

be put down to an evolving of the Maverick into new affordable products for China.

It seems to be a mixing of C-Max with Escape to bundle up more of those buyers with more car like attributes

Yep, looks just like an Escape.

Yes, I think it does... but in a good way. I think it took everything I liked about the first generation Escape and modernized it, and added the Bronco's DNA in a creative and desirable way!

I'm not sold on the Escape's new styling, but that angle doesn't make it look bad at all. I kind of like that picture.

 

The only new escape I saw in person was in white which looked kind of "blah". I'd like to see black or this color to pass judgment.

The back is the best part of the new escape
