    Saw one of those in a parking lot just today. Nice looking but smaller than I was expecting.

    I had a 96'
    It didn't look like that.

    I had a Bronco II years ago so this looks big to me.
    Cloth seats, don't eat anything inside it.
    Never owned the big Bronco but did have a Ram Charger.

    Id guess the build quality, mechanical efficiency, and occupant comfort are light years beyond Bronco past.

    My wife was thinking about using her bonus to get a two door. They are so delayed now, won't have a chance till next year..... at least

    The Jeep forums are just having kittens over the new Bronc. But I wouldn't want one, nor a new Jeep for that matter.

    I want to drive one of the non-Sport models when the come out. Looks good though, you are lucky to get one, all the ones at our dealership have been spoken for

    I had a black '82 4-speed. V8s in our market are uncommon with our overtaxed gas prices but when that engine roared.....oh my!
    Best truck ever!

    This is the only one they have and was surprised to find out nobody else put money down to hold it. We have been waiting about a month and a half for them to release it. Salesman told us that if we ordered one it could take till 2022 to get it.

    From what I understand the interior and features are spartan, which is fine for me. I wonder what you take is.

    Nice looking seats. My 96' had a split bench front seat. It was the most comfortable of any vehicle I've owned. The multiple ajustments of modern seats are a life saver for long trips.

    I had a '84.... 302 w/ automatic. Was just a little cancerous when I got it in '91-'92, but it was only $1200 so.....

    Wow! Looks pretty much like mine, less the red lines. I inherited it from my dad who replaced the original side mirrors for smaller car-like ones after he "slapped" a couple of imprudent pedestrians that miscalculated the truck's size before jaywalking. Got it and installed a whip antenna in the rear panel and a couple of round Hella headlihgts with a foot switch.

    Got it in '89 and sold it in late '91 because the then-new government drop the gas subsidies from previous administrations to combat the 6-digit inflation, so prices skyrocketed and I couldn´t afford filling the 30 gallon tank of the thirsty 302 engine with my salary. Ironically it was bought by a congressman who got fuel assignement from the State....with my taxes!. 
    Went back to a 4-cyl Nissan pickup.....boy, what a difference in power!!

    Barrett-Jackson sold a special edition #1 of a 1000 with the Sasquatch package for over $1million last night, money goes to an outdoor charity Ford supports

    I haven't had a Bronco since about 1990 and even though a lot of people didn't like the Bronco II I enjoyed mine. I am sure I will like this one even more.

    Was  next to one last night at a red light.  They have nice lines

    Thanks Vic, the Bronco rides nice, suspension is stiff but not overly so. The seats are very comfortable, I like the seat height. For a four cylinder it has good power, of course it is turbocharged. We have only put about 120 miles on it so far.
