    I think Ford (and most car manufacturers) do pretty extensive testing nowadays before they release a new vehicle (or gen). With internet reviews a regular part of business now, a few bad reviews on a new car could be its demise. Of course there will always be car companies that are better about this than others, but for the most part, I'd be a lot less worried about purchasing a first year model nowadays vs the old days.

    I was talking in general (to the conversation above about engines). Why I have my 2004 v8.

    Gotcha. I misunderstood your post. Those V8 4runners were nice!

    I just meant to point out that the EB V6 actually has (a lot) more torque than the old 4.7 V8's did, so there's no need for a V8 option in this new Bronco.

    Dont fret though. There will be an SVT version in a couple years time, maybe we will get lucky and it will have a v8.

    For sure. T4R will have better reliability, less depreciation and maintenance costs

    Okay, been watching up on the Bronco.
    1. 3,500# tow capacity...?
    2. No rear window roll down...?
    3. Can this IFS support a snowplow?
    All practical questions (I know I just want a roll down back window).
    A bit more towing and it is a real workhorse again (no pun intended).
    I want a 2 door! I would need to drive one but to add to the wife's T4R...:devil::headbang::spy:
    Is that bad?

    3500 tow is same as Jeep (more in some cases)
    No rear window roll down same as Jeep

    Just from the rear design, you can tell they are targeting Jeep owners. Tough to compare against 4Runner since it's a different class.

    I still can't get over those fender flares. Total fail, IMO.

    Why didn't they just make the body wider?

    Now, if you can take those fenders off and run a tall skinny, that wouldn’t be bad.

    I would have those things ripped apart in the first month. Scrub Oaks are almost as unforgiving as a boulder out west.

    If it hasn’t been said already, Sasquatch upgrades are legit, that’s what’s the TRD Pro should have been.
