I'm just a grumpy old person who's stuck in their ways and fear change.
If Toyota does plan on producing a utility vehicle to replace the FJ Cruiser, they could be competition for the Bronco as they have the nostalgia thing going for them too.

A lot of people definitely prefer the old school ways of doing things. As well as a lot of people want the rotary dial shift knobs out too. I personally don't really care.. once it looks good in there. I feel like this whole 2018-2022 is all about nostalgia though. Like.. grand wagoneer, FJ cruiser, Bronco, what else?!

The new models are going in two directions, either aiming for nostalgia or coming out with a very sporty and new age design. I feel like the Bronco should aim for the former and there's obviously a large market for nostalgic cars if so many are being release in the next few years.

Toyota will be bringing the FT-4X off-road concept to the upcoming New York auto show and it could be competition for the Bronco. We only have a picture of an off-road wheel measuring 225/55R18 set in Goodyear rubber from Toyota, but it could steal the scene at New York.

There's going to be a lot getting unveiled at the NY auto show and as much as I am really interested, I can't say that the FT-4X will steal the show. Dodge is introducing the Demon, Jeep with the Trackhawk, new AMG GLC, etc.

The Trackhawk, almost forgot about that Hellcat powered beast. If Jeep every decide to release an off-road version of that with the same engine, the Ford Bronco will have a very hard time keeping up.

It would be great but I doubt they'd do it. They may have concepts but that's as far as it'll go. They had the TRX concept of the Ram that I thought would be ideal to target the Raptor but I don't think there going forward with that either.

The Trackhawk will still have off-road capability but I doubt anything close to what the Bronco will be. Apparently it's going to take the name for the worlds fastest SUV boadsting a 0-60 of 3.5 seconds.

Didn't think Jeep would lave the 707-hp alone in the trackhawk and it has 645 lb-ft of torque on tap. It'll only be a matter of time until someone turns it into an off roading machine. But it's still not really a factory model and will undoubtedly cost more than a Bronco.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the Toyota FT-4X will remain a purely conceptual model with no hope of going into production. Odd decision with how popular the SUV segment is.
