    I vote for ford to re-make the old bronco with the solid axles and a V8...with a good sound system and a bit of chrome and insulation ford would sell a boat load of them.

    The Escape is more capable offroad and has stronger parts than the Bronco.

    Say that to yourself outloud and let it sink in.

    So lets see... the Escape, Frestyle, Edge, Fairlane, and now a Bonco crossover. Gee you think this segment is getting a bit crowded? Its kinda funny in a way. Bill Ford said they were going to focus on cars... now we get a Fiesta based Bronco, an F150 that rides like a car and NO offroad capable SUVs. I know the guy is an enviormentalist, but did he really have to hose ALL our toys?

    I like the H3... very capable offroading. So is the new X-terra and even the Liberty isn't that bad. Toyota has thet old-school land cruser coming. Ford is the only major company not producing an offroad niche product.

    I'm glad I bought my eb already! Even if this does make production, it's going to be the same response in years past from the fsb to the bII. I don't really care, as the bronco name was lessened w/ the b2. Good lil trucks, but i'll stick with my Early Bronco!

    From what I've read and seen, Ford is trying to get out of the niche market for now. Killing off the adrenaline (SVT Sport-Trac) and GT, adding more cars. Yet, with this Bronco and 5-door (Fiesta or whatever they call it) and pricing them low, they are trying to compete with someone elses market (Scion) and all they've got as a sales pitch is the Bronco name.
