If Ford ever did this, Jeep would be forced to up their QC

2016 Ford SVT Bronco Coming Soon

This thing would be a beast and I would be first in line to buy one.

Re: If Ford ever did this, Jeep would be forced to up their QC

Yes, it was an April Fools joke. BUT, I WISH Ford would make this damn truck. Part of the problem current owners have is that nothing out there really compares. So we have to put up with what I believe is a blatant lack of QC. If FC knew there was a direct competitor out there, maybe they would pay a bit more attention to detail.

Re: If Ford ever did this, Jeep would be forced to up their QC

Ford is considering producing the Everest - just not for the North American market.



That's where the danger lies for the Grand Cherokee. Not in the Bronco.

That's ugly. I like the Bronco concept better. I just cannot believe that we have no other options. Nothing in the market compares to the GC other than the LR4, I guess.

I agree. I feel this is more of a threat than a Bronco. This Ford is built for tougher terrain like the Grand Cherokee. It would kill some Explorer sales though.

I had a 1995 Explorer, 2-door...absolutely loved that thing...in fact, after my two year lease was up, I got another one.......that was a tough truck....but what do I know....

Re: If Ford ever did this, Jeep would be forced to up their QC

That would have got a serious look by me when I was shopping. The GC is basically in a field of 1 in the US right now. The FJ and XTerra are just too rough and tumble, the US Explorer simply has no capability, other comparable SUVs are more "AWD" than "4WD" and everything else is upmarket (WAY upmarket).

The Mall Crawler and Soccer Mom crowd have overwhelmed the market. The GC is the only "Gentlemen's SUV" left that can actually do anything.

Of course, if Ford brought over the new Ranger, I would have given it at least a look over. F-150 is a great truck, just too big.
