Awesome. I had a K-5 Blazer in high school. It was the best all around truck I have ever had. Perfect size. I hope it's true.

Highly doubt this is very real, but thought I'd share. They'd be ugly

Three requirements of the new Bronco or I will be sorely disappointed. First, tight turning radius. My 1990 Eddie Bauer could do a uturn in a 2-lane road without backing up. Second, top must be removable! That's part of the fun when it's warm. Third and possibly most important. Absolutely must have tailgate with power rear window. No Expedition hatchback, no suburban doors. Tailgate and power window only.

In addition the Bronco should sit high, none of this air dam, good gas mileage crap. As much as I like the Ecoboost in my F150, the Bronco should get the 5.0 with 3.73 or 4.10 gears.

If you watch the documentaries on Netflix there is one on the redesign of the 2015 mustang. It's interesting to see how the process takes place and how long it takes to bring a car to production. Somewhere deep in the basement at Ford is the new bronco already. Hopefully the pictures will be out this year.

I agree! It also needs to be almost dangerously top heavy. That's my favorite part.

The new bronco will be based upon the new ranger. It will not be big at all. It'll essentially be a ranger with a shell on the bed.

I've heard it going to be a 4 door SUV based on the new ranger platform. If that's the case, I'm not interested. Now if they bring back a full size, V8, 2 door, removable top, beast... Shut up and take my money.

May be designed by a 14yo but he knew what he was doing. Looks pretty good to this old man. I'd consider driving it.

I don't know about that, look at the new Titan. Same slant up. Same with the Ford, but with a split headlight so its not so noticeable.

Looks like a grocery getter to me like the Bronco II.

I'd like to see one build more off road functional and on the style of the the 74 model I had. That thing would go anywhere and was extremely tuff.

The Cheby is the only one that looks like it could actually go off road and come out without a problem. Dodge is a slim maybe just based on fender wells and available wheel travel.
