New Bronco sighting


Recommended Posts

I've only seen the extremely disappointing Bronco Sport which has been driven by a teenage looking girl every time. Looking forward to seeing the real Bronco.

I’ve seen a few.  I was next to one with a young lady driving at an stoplight recently.  I asked her if that was the bigger size or small one.  She said the big one.  It was a Sport.  I knew the Sport was a little smaller, but apparently she didn’t, lol.  There one that lives in my neighborhood too.  Pretty car.  I’d want the bigger one.  Seems more substantial as well as capable.

My nephew told me that they were piping in "V8 motor sounds" over the stereo to offset the sounds of the 2.0 liter engine - and I thought he was pulling my leg.

Alas: https://www.motortrend.com/news/2021-ford-bronco-sport-badlands-v-8-noise-speakers/

I don't even really know what to say.

This isn’t new. All of the big 3 have done this. Modern engines often don’t make the noises American consumers want.

They make them look good in the commercials but I know about 3 guys that have test drove them and none bought one but 1 of them did buy new Jeep. 1 is still looking for something and one is considering a new Blazer.

We get what we deserve I guess.

My solution is simple.  I never buy anything that isn't a V8 ...

I know a guy who just moved from Knoxville to Texas to lead trial rides at the Bronco Off-Roadeo course there near Austin.  He's a very discerning off road enthusiast and he says they are really great and capable off road vehicles.   Its a true contender for the Jeep in the "off the lot off road capable options". If the fords have any level of better reliability than Jeep they'll see good sales

I've seen several, it's everything that I expected out of a tricked out Ford Escape.

That's the Sport. The big one is a whole different animal.

Oh No you Didn't!!

My truck just turned 79k today, no problems so far, 8yrs old

I have a 2006 F-150 with 226k miles. Drove it three years now. Haven’t turned a screw.

Reportedly, the F150 with the 3.5 EB twin turbo engine has the "V8" sound enhancement thru the radio speakers as well.  I have a '18 F150 3.5EB, and can't hear that V8 growl thru the speakers.  Don't particular care either, the truck does what I need for it to do, and has been very dependable to date.

My brother had a 2000 F-150 that made it over 300k before he sold it. It required quite a bit of work to get there though. Overall, it was a good truck for him for nearly 2 decades.

I still think Toyota builds a better vehicle. We have numerous members on the Tundra forum over 300k with nothing but routine maintenance. A few over 400k and even 1 over 500k. 3 of them have hit 1 million miles on the 4.7L 2UZ-FE.

I have a Toyota as well, and I agree with you.

That said, find me a comparable 4x4 Toyota for $2700.😎

On my 3rd Toyota and my 2nd Tundra now.  I have a hard time being interested in much anything else.  Just wish they would produce a true 3/4 or 1 ton.
