    Looks like a well camouflaged test mule.

    If they want the bronco to compete with jeep and they put anything other than a solid axle in the front, the only jeep they will be competing with is that of the Cherokee and renegade. Both are a laughing stock off the off-road community.

    We shall see. The ranger has mediocre axle articulation with that watts link, and I’d imagine this will be similar.

    This will be a mall cruiser that looks looks the part IMO, which is what the masses want.

    Im well aware, only thing better would be a center mounted 9" IFS KOH style. But that aint happening either.

    Hopefully not. The ranger sucks ass and Ford has a ton of small mall parking vehicles that are nothing more than stationwagons.

    Ford has failed over and over these past 3 years...

    I don’t remember where I read it but someone said it best when they said that Ford is having an identity crisis. Everything they’re making has so much compromise that their target audience is put off by the final product because it’s so far away from what the target wants by then.

    In typical Ford fashion, they will **** this one up too.

    You would think people aren’t clamoring all over the internet of what they want and are willing to buy.

    A turbo GT500 with forged internals. A Bronco that looks like the teaser photos. I mean they keep raising the price on things and not delivering. They’re going to hit the intersection of demand/price and regret these stupid decisions, if they haven’t gotten there already.

    You are still very limited with the CVJ angles if you want to lift it.

    You'd be able to make it plenty tall with the length of cv shaft a center mount gives you. And if you wanted a rolling skyscraper they'd still make drop bracket for it. Not a lot of people are aware but IFS has overtaken solid axles in pure all out rock abilities in the top buggies, (Ultra4) its just expensive, but a favtory effort could make it cheap, no reason it has to cost more than the rinky dink IFS systems in modern trucks.

    Actually a good example is SXS's on the affordable scale

    You won't see that in a factory offering from Ford.

    I would buy one tomorrow. But they won't make this, they will make a neutered looking ranger with a bed cap. I really hope I'm wrong, but based on the ranger, I'm guessing I'm not.

    I'd be willing to bet the test mule is just a chassis test. The official teaser pic from Ford as well as the shadow behind the baby-Bronco still give me hope for a boxy, Jeep Wrangler competitor. ford-teaser(1).jpg

    That teaser shot of it under the cover is the only thing keeping me interested, i feel like it will actually look like what we want but shitty suspension and shitty powertrain options.
