Bronco world premier Spring 2020! Now with photos!

Recommended Posts

A couple things I picked up in the C&D article was the 35" tires and rear leaf springs.  My 2019 Wrangler Rubicon comes with 33" tires but can handle 35" (BFGs which are more like 34s) without a lift.  It'll be interesting if the Bronco comes out of the box with that capability.  I don't think the rear leaf spring assumption is correct.  I'm betting coil springs with training arms etc.

This looks a bit too much like the Flex for some reason.

 

Huh?

I wonder if the Troller T4 will eventually be replaced by the 2 door Bronco in South America... Producing it alongside the Ranger and Amarok could be viable

I thought the same thing.  Just a general resemblance.

MAP is supposed to be the only source globally for Bronco, and word is its no longer a global program.

I see. It's just that the T4 is, at the same time, so close to the Bronco and so disconnected from everything else at Ford that it's hard to see it in a big picture of the company.

Ford finally just put an automatic transmission in the Troller T4. Up to this point it had been exclusively a manual.

Trust me, T4 is not even on the global radar, it's a local project intended to fill a need in South America.

Cool to see Ford is going big on the tires.  I don't think Ford ever offered anything bigger than a 31" tire stock on the 90s trucks.  33" would be awesome to buy stock.

It doesn't have leaf springs or Watts link.

So we have now seen 2 different prototypes in action, both of which share no actual components with the Bronco other than chassis and power train. So Ford is just trolling us, or more importantly trolling Jeep at this point right?

It does have Watts link. (wink)

In the pictures of the chassis mules last year you can see

the trailing arms and partially concealed cross links.

It's a drip feed promotion that's designed to make you scan social media for any further updates.

You'd think they'd start with something a bit more inspiring than an ultra ugly mule failing to do anything off road that an Escape couldn't have done.  Most peoples first reaction to that thing is already repulsion.

Infuriating isn't it.....but I bet you'll keep watching for the next tidbit.

For once there are no leaks of images months or years before Ford is ready

and it's killing some people...

I'm not the average consumer, I'm highly motivated, and I'm no brand fanboy.  My response to that isn't very flattering.

Yeah, I can't buy the Wrangler I'm interested in yet either.  I want to test drive the 3.0L diesel before I order one.

Why does the boxy hood hood riser continue to show up on these concepts?  I don't get it.

Because there is on nearly all of the vague tarped and shadowy images Ford has given us of the Bronco.
