This can't be the 'Baby' Bronco, Can it?

So Top Speed just posted this article up on Friday, which I'm hoping isn't accurate. There are some new spy shots of a CUV test mule and they seem to think that it could be the smaller Bronco. This doesn't look anything like the teaser Ford released, and imo it looks way more like an update for the EcoSport. https://www.topspeed.com/cars/car-ne...-ar182430.html

You would be surprised by what gets reskinned. That being the case, the only reliable feature we can take from these shots is the wheelbase and ride height. At that rate we're easily looking at a Jeep Renegade rival.... aka Baby Bronco.

There is no way that this will be the final production body of the smaller Bronco. If anything they are just using this shell to test out the powertrain that will be used. Enthusiasts wont be happy to see this thing wearing a Bronco badge.

remember, this is what they want us to see all while masking what's underneath and these days releasing something that goes viral is how they win at gaining attention.
in this case it should be incremental steps that lead to the real deal.

real question.... when last has Ford let you down on a production vehicle?

This article was 100% clickbait, and there is no way that Ford will tarnish the Bronco name with something that looks like that. Whatever this is, it looks hybrid/electric because I don't see any exhaust ports.

Look close at the right rear wheel I think ya can see the edge of a muffler??

I'm 99.9% sure it's not the BB.

The BB, as well as all soon to be released next-generation vehicles, will be road tested in different locations, some with the usual computer-generated camouflage some W/O. Been that way for many years. Ford does not slap on a completely different body to try and fool the Car Spy paparazzi/photographers. They do make a few alterations but basically, test mules are very close.

Chances are its a refreshed Ecosport or an unannounced new CUV. Ford has said that there will be at least 4 new vehicles joining the lineup by 2020.

If its an EcoSport successor then I don't know why they would use such high profile tires, doesn't make any sense.
