Rumors of 2015 Ford Bronco

I'm sure some of you guys have heard rumors and read articles about this. All the articles still have the old 2004ish Bronco concept vehicle shown as the pictures. The articles also say it would be built on the F-150. It would seem once again LR will be late to the game of putting another vehicle on the market that will be over priced after competitors have put nearly the same thing out for public consumption. I doubt they will ever be leading the way in the SUV market. It really seems like their lack of Defender replacement is a lost opportunity to capitalize on the folks who want something quasi capable but more with just a rugged look. That's really what the turd burglars who buy new SUVs are after... a rugged look with a useful station wagon sized interior.

Anyways. http://www.associatednews.com/headli...and-specs/6637

This youtube has an interesting picture of just an F-150 front with a 90s style Bronco back end.

Personally, I dig this far more.

I agree. I've given up thinking the LR lineup will bring back masculine lines and functionality. They seem happy to leave that to the American truck makers. LR's marketing strategy seems to have gone bi. Their products appeal to both sides which I assume reduces the market risk. Seems the female buyer/partner/spouse has a hell if a lot more say in how the money is spent then maybe it used to. I've mentioned before in another post that I've ironically had three potential buyers get vetoed by their spouses in the 11th hour. I find it ironic but I'm sure this is more reality then I'd imagined.
