Whats The Bronco Like?

Well if it's anything like the Global Ranger, not bad at all...

Quote:
Our off-road-only drive is hardly extensive enough to come to a concrete conclusion, but the Ranger's continued prowess on the rough stuff, its generous towing and hauling limits and comfortable, well-appointed cabin mean it should certainly be on your shopping list.

Just bear in mind that this range-topping Wildtrak still looks a little pricey next to an equivalent Mitsubishi L200 or Volkswagen Amarok, so the cheaper but similarly well equipped Limited model will be the better option for most buyers. We'll have our final verdict after a proper on-road drive early next year.

FFS, not this again.

Global ranger and Bronco are said to be coming to NA.

Ranger does far more volume then a hypothetical bronco.

Ranger has a platform developed for global construction, the Bronco is vapor ware ATM.

Would it not make sense for Ford to base a lower volume Bronco on a higher volume platform from the ranger, especially if they're to share an assembly line

Couple with the Fact that Ford sells the Everest SUV based on the global ranger. Everest is likely what becomes Bronco in the US.

Yup.

If it wasn't for the Ranger, future Bronco would only remain as a dream and a micro-niche that may never emerge. Along with the platform they should be sharing some component and parts, best way to get cost down as much as possible.

And I think the Everest (based on World Ranger) as Bronco makes the most sense, because then Ford has a viable RWD passenger platform they can put to use for Lincoln.

Bronco is ford, but then they could use the RWD platform under say MKX or add another CUV between MKX and Navigator.

So they'll keep the Everest platform and change out the skeleton and design?

Will be great if the Bronco also has this as standard:

The Ranger comes with an electrically controlled transfer box, which gives the driver the option to select rear-wheel drive and 4x4 high range ratios on the move. There's also an option to select low-range gearing, which gives extra traction in difficult conditions or when tackling steep inclines and declines.
I want the option to switch the driving mode depending on the road surface.

drive modes on the fly is typical. its the locking low gear on the move thats nice. Typically you had to come to a full stop and shift into park/neutral.

I can understand shifting into neutral while you're on the move but park?
