You are in the Ford Bronco
What is this discussion about?
Ford Bronco, SUV
Jan 14, 2005 (10:04 pm)
I've showed every pix from car mags(I get 4 every month,way down from 10 before marriage)to the wife, and she says if the price is right! She wants me to get a small suv for my next, with awd or 4X4. That Bronco would look sweet in my driveway, especially in classic color schemes. And probably handle my annual hunting trip to Potter Co. just fine, too!
Wife would prefer a Lincoln version for herself, tho'.

Sounds like a good woman you got there! In my home, we do it the other way around-I drive the Navigator, she drives the Mountaineer, but the principal still applies.

I suppose we could always end up with a Bronco and an Aviator. Then we'd both be happy. She was a little concerned to hear that the Av was going away, till I showed her the pics of the new Av concept. 'Course that would never see the rougher side of driving. But that Bronco....well, let's just say, it would earn it's keep!
Hopefully we can hear something, soon, from mother Ford, about our little Bronco.

The Ford Bronco concept should be built. Ford has hit a homerun with the new Mustang, and if the Bronco is produced it would no doubt very popular. Judging by the ground clearance on the concept, the Bronco should be able to tackle anything a Hummer H2 could. Check out the link. Even if they never produce this Bronco, how about a two door Expedition based version? Who likes that idea?

I like it - but I'm not sure it'll be the hit, or have the mass appeal the Mustang has. There would doubtless be some demand for the two door SUV again, but it's not as practical as the 4 door, and it may have the staying power of the Thunderbird...... But I've been wrong....

Does a Hummer H2 come across as a practical vehicle? No, of course not. I don't see the point in driving a 6400 lbs. monster, that gets poor fuel economy, as well has poor visibility. The vehicle also has a very cheap looking interior. Despite all this, the H2 sells here in the Middle East like crazy! It's not a practical vehicle. Even the Mustang isn't a practical vehicle, yet people are buying it beacuse of the low price, the power and the looks. Similarily, if Ford were to release the Bronco the way it is in the concept, I have no doubt that Ford would have a runaway success on their hands. Anyone can appreciate a tough SUV with real off roading skills. This would probably be Ford's first legitimate off roader. Ford should release the Bronco concept a year from now, when the Mustang mania fades.
However, if Ford were to make the Bronco a two door Expedition, I doubt the Bronco would be a runaway success compared to the concept............

Sure agree with you about the H2 interior - hate it! Hate most GM interiors though....
Not sure that Bronco is going to see daylight though. Wonder if the Jeep Commander is going to make it to the Car lot?
