Yeah, but they look like sh!t.
That's just Toyota being Toyota. They manufacture appliances.
Latest rumor on the front axle is that all production versions of the Bronco will get IFS but there will be a solid axle conversion for the hard core off-road crowd available through Ford Performance. The rear axle will be solid but will use the Watts link w/coil-over setup from the Everest SUV and Ranger Raptor, neither of which are currently sold here. The body will also have a removable top and doors, similar to the Wrangler and the original Bronco. No real info on drivetrains but there has been talk that the T6 frame has been modified to accept a V6 as well as a hybrid setup, similar to that planned for the next Explorer and F-150 which place an electric motor between the engine and 10-speed auto that works in conjunction with the torque converter. BTW, the next Explorer will also be RWD.
Is that supposed to be new news? The 2020 Explorer heading to dealerships now is a RWD Explorer.
No way is Ford performance offering a solid axle swap.
Agreed. It's pointless. If it is so important than they would have justified it for production. If it can be done then they will just let the aftermarket offer it.
Just having to R&D IFS AND solid axle mounts and the definite need of cutting/welding and entirely swapping the steering rack out for a box... I mean, who comes up with this shit? Lol
Apparently Dana does well with the crate axles for the wrangler, but yeah with all the work involved here i can’t see it...just not a “simple” swap like it is for jeep
Seems hodge podged to me. All of these rumors circulating are why I bought a 2019 Rubicon three months back instead of waiting for competition for the 4runner I already had, that left me wanting due to the IFS, and other aspects that made it great on and off-road, but mastered non. Just being able to run 35's without a lift on this Jeep made it worth it to me due to a lot of the trails I have to run for work, and of course play. Heck, 37's only require a minor 2" lift.
Ya know if your only goal is to discourage open discussion in this forum and keep it stale you're doing an awesome job.
Huh? So, if I don't agree with you, then I am discouraging open discussion? Again...Huh?
Fake news isnt open discussion
What was the fake news? Maybe I missed it.
Ford performance offering a solid axle swap as an add on
Posting year old news is not open discussion either.
I’m lost also.
This Sure Looks Like a Full-Size Ford Bronco Test Mule
If they brought back the BRONCO...just as it was but updated everything but the body..it would sell.
Very interesting pic above, but a pre-runner type Bronco just doesn't seem logical. You would think ford would aim it more towards the rock crawling bunch.
Just can’t visualize someone jumping one at the dunes. I can picture the rear side windows shattering when the frame twist or stress fractures on the body though.
Didn’t some come with TTB axles and got turned into Baja-mobiles?
It won’t be much for crawling without a solid front axle IMO
