    It looks like one of the plastic tonka trucks I used to play with when I was little. That does not deserve to have the title of "Bronco".

    Well, I'm gonna go against the responses so far and say I like it. I'd chop some crap off the front bumper, but other than that I like the way it looks. I saw the 2 liter turbo-diesel w/nnnnaaaaaaawwwwwsss and the variable tranny, but any news on the suspension or power ratings?

    I like the look of Mercedes G500, and I LOVE this one. I hope they don't change much when the actual production comes out.

    I also like it but I would need to see the specs on suspension etc. But from the looks of it, there would be a winch and that is a real good sign.

    [pre-rant] i like the styling. it looks good, the front is a little over agressive, but overall i dig the look. the little diesel on drugs is also cool as hell. with that said... [/pre-rant]

    ITS M****R F*****G ALL WHEEL DRIVE!!!!
    :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire: :fire:

    its built on a front wheel drive mini-ute platform! they added a diffy to the rear IRS to make it AWD! this is all fine, BUT DO NOT USE THE ***DAM BRONCO NAME ON IT!!! if this thing goes into production as a Bronco, i will NEVER buy another Ford again. period. it is worse than a slap in the face, it is a slap in the face to the ground, pee'd on, and then teabagged.

    un-f****n' believable.

    I know why doesn't ford try to go grab the Jeep market sare and throw some 60's under front and rear. I hate it that Jeep builds what people want.

    You know...

    I heard a while back that ford was working on a wrangler fighter. Wrangler basicly has there market tapped. There really isn't anything like it. This shows promise I think. I think ford really wants to bring back the Bronco, and I think the public also does. But hopefully Ford rembers why thet we're and still are so wanted. Capability! I don't know if you will see soild axles though, there becomeing a thing of the past. But I think IFS/IRS is the future, as soon as they can get travel problems fixed. After all, if you build it they will come!;)

    (and for god sakes put a V8 in it!):D

    I dont think there will ever be an IFS on a factory car that can flex at all.
