Seen a bunch of the smaller Bronco Sports on the road. (Its a Bronco II and FORD should of named it so). The styling is good but the drive train makes the Sport seem more like an Escape but in drag.

As long as Ford continues to market the Bronco as a capable, tough, 4x4 ... I could care less about size.

When they come out with a 2wd mall crawler or a lowered Bronco ..... I'm out

Its a Ford Division now (just like lincoln or merc). I still wait for them to put the Raptor underneath ina 90 inch WB - 2dor. We can learn from the BII that ford can lead. 1st w/the falcon alt to the vedub bug desimating the usa auto industry - spauned the SUV'n muscle era (bronk & stang) then the dwn szed suv BII. (Rav4, CRV & the followers). But that is not what's sought. A cj or whatever-called-now beater is my interest~
the cj8 or scrambler (in alsaka postal livery) was abt right too.

I,d like to see a drawing of the Bonco members come up with ,.What they should look like and the innards (motor-transmission-gears. ) I don,t know who designs these vehicles now days,but they sure don,t have any sight for design or good taste. The Bronco was first made for the backwoods . Its ruggedness and dependability. Not a street crusier or drag racer. If we want that. We,d get a car.

The pictures I have seen of them. They can take them to the scrap yard. They don,t look a bit comfortable nor do they look anything like a Ford Bronco. More like a Scout . ,but even the scout looks alot better.
