Well, first, we have to bring the Cornbinder Company back (International Harvester for those of you with no farming background whatsoever)!Yeah , I know... I'll probably be waiting a long time........But we can dream...............
The second picture looks a little bit too much an Explorer for my taste. I’ve been waiting for the Bronco to get released. The first vehicle I bought new was a bronco ll in 1986. I loved that vehicle so much I bought a second one in 1989. I ran both of them for several years, both in excess of 250,000 miles. I’m not crazy enough to think the new bronco will last that long, but I will take a hard look at it when it comes out.Judging by the spy photos...Closer to a Jeep and off roading but I don't think "small" will be able to be used as a discriptor.
4 door version
I think there will be a 2 door version also but haven't seen any good photos yet.
There will also be a Bronco "Sport"
You're better off with higher trim level and get a set of steelies for snow tires. Also, that picture is obviously a rendering that took some liberties with body lines and stance making it look far better than any production vehicle ever will. The actual base vehicle will look cheap and rubbery with undersized wheels and tires.I have a soft spot for steelies. Give me the base model.
One of my FB friends is totally into Jeeps. Her husband is the service manager at a Jeep dealer and she has a really nice custom, lifted Wrangler 4dr that will never see mud or cross any water deeper than a puddle in the mall parking lot. Every time she posts a picture I tell her it would look better with some mud on it.The market is huge for this type of "truck". In the last 18 months, there have been six 4-door wranglers purchased or leased by neighbors within 100 yards of my house. I am pretty sure not one has been off road yet. They do look cool with the top and doors off.
I think you will find that honour goes to the Toyota CorrollaFunnily enough I though Ford would be more into true 4x4 offroad capability from their time owning JLR but they didn't seem to ever leverage that. With the F150 being the bestselling passenger vehicle in the world maybe can see why.
