Re: BRONCO ...thread continued

Bronco shares Ranger specs and thus similar results would be expected, so I thought I would put the official Ranger MPG ratings here.



Ranger 4x2: 23/21/26 mpg (combined/city/highway)
Ranger 4x4: 22/20/24 mpg (combined/city/highway)


I was expecting closer to 30mpg, perhaps 28. But still, this is not an under powered I4 Ranger. It will tow 7500lbs.

I've been thinking the same thing. It really feels like Ford kinda knew 2018 would be a festival of pain, and has been working toward big reveals/models starting early next year.

Bronco...GT500...Explorer...likely some of the hybrid tech....

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

Don't forget new Escape. And Lincoln has new MKC replacement too.

Yeah, I'm curious how those will do. Those vehicles are in hot spots in their respective segments, so Ford/Lincoln has a lot riding on two of the less-discussed new arrivals.

It looks like Ford is working toward a 2015-esque model blitz.

Really curious to see if the MKC/Corsair gets the performance based hybrid setup. It'd be cool to see it with 325+HP and 400+ of that torque stuff! It could be a contender!

Baby Bronco will be out after new Escape. I am curious how sales will play out for both.
The Corsair looks meh to me. I expected much more.

Have you seen the production Corsair?

I was expecting the baby Bronco to be revealed first because it was presented at the dealer event (where the leaked photos came from). Did they also reveal the 2020 Escape at that event?

I saw both the Escape and baby Bronco at an employee reveal many months ago. Their roll out timing should be close, but I don't know which is first. The baby Bronco has been altered from what I saw to what was recently shared. The Lincoln was not shown then, only recently. Don't get me wrong, it looks good, but I may have expected too much.
