201X Ford Bronco

Postby Escape94 - December 30th, 2013, 6:27 pm

Anyone hear any gong about a new bronco for the '15/'16 MY? I've heard some chatter about it but the concept photos of the bronco I've seen have been around since the early-mid 2000's. Heck. I've got a hotwheels Ford Bronco concept car.

As you said, the concept has been around for years. As cool as it would be, it wouldn't sell well enough. The price point of such vehicle would be near the Raptor, and that truck is doing too well to mess with. All opinion, of course.

It seems like there's been chatter about this every time someone discovers the photo of the concept. I did some searching and couldn't find too much current chatter. The one article I did find made it sound like a new concept would be built, but maybe I misunderstood. This is the article I read:

The rumors seem to be that there will be a new Bronco show vehicle this year. Sort of makes sense since there will be a new F-150. Guess we'll find out in a few weeks at the Detroit auto show.

If Jeep goes to IRS in the new wrangler and Ford released a Bronco with solid rear...they could kill it. As long as it is an actual off road capable unit. It should be good.

FWIW, Ford did all right with certain vehicles in a rear solid axle application...

PM with wheel questions.
