    To understand where I'm going with this we must go to the past. Back to 1966 when a small sport ute was born called the Bronco. Now this truck pretty much unchanged untill 1978 when a new bigger Bronco was interdused on a 150 frame. This truck stck around until 1996 when the Bronco was lost forever. (very sad) Now back in 1983 The Ranger was born and its cousin the Bronco 2 was also born. Similer in size to the orignal. Now the B2 was replased in 1991 by .......The Explorer and Explorer Sport. So now with the sport going away I think they should build a short '02 explorer with retro body and call it ........the Bronco!

    I have also heard Ford is gonna build a new truck to compeate the Jeep Wrangler. Then they would call that the Bronco I would hope and let the Sport go.

    ford doesn't need to build anything to compete with the wrangler.. we can already haul 3 or 4 more grocery carts full of stuff in our explorers.

    So you're saying take a 4 door '03 explorer, and make it a 2 door? It will still be totally incapable off road :rolleyes:

    Also, Ford is NOT building a vehicle to compete with the wrangler. Why would they do that when they make more money by building glorified minivans?
