If one considers all the power and efficiency robbing BS manufacturers have to add in order to meet emission standards, including adding ethanol to fuel, I truly wonder if we are actually ahead. Sure it all looks good on paper, but when you get 10,000 miles down the road, I find it hard to believe we are actually winning anything.

In addition, engines don’t last nearly as long without major overhauls and that also costs a lot in energy and resources which only adds to greenhouse gas emissions. I believe the government has us running in circles all in the name of saving the planet.

Considering that man only adds 3% to the total global carbon dioxide cycle, we sure are pissing away a lot of time and money trying to cut emissions by fractional percentages which at the end of the day doesn’t amount to a fart in a hurricane.

Anyhow, back to the OP... Will be interesting to see how offroad capable the new Bronco will be.

Everything needs a Ford inline 6 240/300 with a one barrel Carter YFA. Economy, good torwue, and only needs to be rebuilt about every 300k.

I think the Bronco is going to be cool, and I think it will be a hit in the market it's headed into. One thing I have really liked on my past two Ford's was electronic lockers in the rear. I would assume this would be standard on the 4x4. Did I read correctly that it will be offered in 2wd like the Jeeps?

Lots of hype.
My guess, shortened all-metal Ranger 2.5T
2wd is usually an option like most SUV's.
G'night.

Ford has one simple rule don’t mess with the f-150.

The single product and its derivatives (f250/f350) is the core of the ford franchise.

I just hope it's [at least] a 2 door Ranger version. The F class width seems a little to wide for a 2 door.

Your wish came true. The Bronco is built on the mid-size Ranger frame which is 72" wide and not the full sized F-150 frame which is 80" wide. The Bronco is supposedly coming in both 2 and 4 door versions.

We get what we get. I heard the Baby Bronco will be the first to hit showrooms.

Well the 4 door looks like just another Explorer. Hope the 2 door looks better. Glad to hear that a V-6 is an option.

If anyone cares, the 2021 full sized model is called the Bronco. The smaller Escape-based model is called the Bronco sport.
May have to drive one of the full-sized ones.

After much artificially induced fanfare, I predict the same success as the Thunderbird II attained.

What's the expected mileage until the first tow truck call?

coffee

At least these days, FORD doesn't have to give their customers a good set of walking shoes with each vehicle. As long as they have a cell phone to call for help, they're good to go!

I predict the full sized Bronco will do better sales in the first 6 months than the late model Tbird ever did in sales. Aftermarket parts should do well.

450 - 500 miles on the stock tank. 300 more with the two Jerry cans.

Impressive. That will certainly get you in and out of most wilderness areas with plenty to spare.
