Re: Looks like ford is targeting jeep?

I'd agree that it looks like their design is inspired by Jeep's "ruggedness" but that interior looks straight out of an F150 which I think is hideous. I'm really digging the 2-door version though....

Re: Looks like ford is targeting jeep?

It's awful, but sort of cool at the same time. I would take a Wrangler or GC over that all day.

It looks like they used the steering wheel from the '95 era F-150's kinda.

Re: Looks like ford is targeting jeep?

I didn't do any research but that CAN'T be a real design. Ford has some decent looking cars now I just don't understand how this would fit in.

Re: Looks like ford is targeting jeep?

Coyote V8 is superior to the Chrysler/Jeep's V8. You all need to go this thing called the internet as use this thing called a search engine from Google. Search for "Ford Bronco" and see what pops up. Not bad looking rif on the original. Lets hope its based on the Ford Ranger rather then some POS car FWD based platform like the Explorer. Anyone catch the 4.5l diesel?? Does Chrysler jeep have anything to compete with the Ecoboost? If its based on the Ranger platform I take it over a Cherokee anyday. I am guessing the will run Baja with it just like the original.

Re: Looks like ford is targeting jeep?

I suggest you use this thing called the internet, then use this thing called a search engine, and look up the word "hideous". You'll probably find a picture of that Bronco there, along with its Coyote V8.

That's what you get when you give kids modeling clay and two days off school.

Google can also double as a spell check for him... Why is this guy a member on here? He obviously hates Jeep.
