Brainwashed Crossovers That Think They Compete with the Bronco

Brainwashed Crossovers That Think They Compete with the Bronco
By Geoff Castaneda

The closer we get to 2020, the easier it is to speculate about the upcoming Bronco. While we await the return of the king, let's take a look at some of the posers that have been masquerading as off-road worthy SUVs.

I’m not sure the Bronco ever was the “king”... actually I’m sure it was never the “king” but I’m really hoping it’ll check a lot of boxes once it returns and that yes maybe it can become the “king”

Jeep will always be the king, period.

What surprises me is with the resurrection of the Bronco is that GM hasn't announced any plans to revive the old amazing K5 Blazer on the Colorado chassis.

I have a feeling this will be a copy of the Jeep Wrangler 4 doors, only without the quirkiness, **** poor ergo's and leg room, and lame axles. Dana 44's with lockers would be nice.

The Wrangler Unlimited's have a pretty good formula. And an easy one to improve on.

It's not hard to compete with a Bronco that is not yet here... But this article is silly. The Honda CR-V is a mainstream compact sport ute that sells in huge numbers and has no off-road claims made about it. On the other hand, a Subaru with a bit of lift and some gnarly tires can do amazingly well off-road unless you really want to go bouncing off boulders, in which case you need a Wrangler with a bunch of armor on it. We shall see what the Bronco ends up being. I used to think it would be an Everest with restyled front and rear ends, but am now thinking that Ford will go a bit wilder on the bodywork--but they will have to be careful how much they invest in it.

The percentage of SUV buyers who seriously go off-road is very small. I would bet that 80% or more of the Raptors that Ford sells are barely used for any serious off-roading. They exist for people to "wear". My dentist, a 45ish outdoorsy woman, drives a Wrangler, probably mostly to get to hiking trailheads and campsites with graded roads.

If the Bronco ends up like their latest Thunderbird debacle, then we're screwed. At least the Bronco will share a chassis with the Ranger so we know the bones will be strong.

Looks like a Toyota fj cruiser or even a Dodge Nitro. Bronco was only king of one thing... most heavy removable shell.
