    Looks pretty slick! Hope they stick the general styling there.

    Yeah, the big questions is, how much of the Bronco R will actually show up in the stock models come 2021?

    I showed the video to my wife with the vintage Bronco shown first. She didn't realize it was an old vehicle. Her initial comment was that Ford was copying the Jeep Gladiator. Wait just a doggone minute. Which came first? I guess that means that Jeep copied Ford.

    As much as I love off road racing and this truck, it does nothing to give me confidence in Ford to build a Bronco badge worthy truck as of yet. They have had a prototype for 15 years. Huge let down. First it was supposed to debut in 2018 then 2019 and here we are.

    That release in 2020 will be a Jeep Renegade at best! #notabronco

    She's right, one of the older Broncos really does look like the Jeep Gladiator, that is, an SUV with a truck bed tacked on. The Jeep people would never admit it, but it may be that the Bronco "inspired" their thinking on the Gladiator.

    It really depends on what kind of truck really shows up in 2020, which is hard to say from the racing videos they are releasing now. A 2.7 boosted SIX would be really interesting, depending on what the whole package looks like....

    Of course she's right. She tell's me that every day....

    But, yes, I found it striking how they really copied the styling.

    Looks like they’re using the flex body on a different frame. Must save a lot of money.
