What does the front of the Escape resemble the closest? Will it be longer and offer more rear legroom and cargo like the CRV?

I think it's more (new) Focus looking.

Reports suggest that Ford won't be exporting the Bronco twins to markets outside of North America.

If it's true that the Bronco and baby Bronco will only be sold in North America, then Ford is making a very very big mistake.


-roadandtrack.com

If Ford wants to "BEAT JEEP", they should start making its exciting new SUVs available outside North America.

Jeep's lineup is available around the globe, yes that includes the Wrangler and the Trailhawk variants.


Ford's car models are slowly being killed off one by one outside the European and Chinese markets.

I think those other markets about to lose their Ford car models should be getting the new SUV models North America will be getting soon. Not everyone wants a Ranger and EcoSport, Ford needs to offer more models to global markets.

The upcoming Bronco can literally be the Mustang of off-roaders/SUVs.

Beat Jeep?
Great aspirations, impossible aspirations?


Bronco no for outside North America? Maybe a small mistake. Baby Bronco no for outside North America? Big, really big mistake. Ford Europe needs desperately new crossovers, and the Baby Bronco could be a hit here.


I canīt understand some Ford decisions...

Ford might not be able to beat Jeep now but making a dent in Wrangler sales would be a good start.

Ford needs it in Asia too. Like the US and Canadian market, Ford is slowly phasing out car models in Asian markets except China. The only difference is here in Asia there are no new SUV models being added to the Asian lineup. On the bright side, we do get the Ranger Raptor here (but those who want something more compact want the Bronco).

Same here, Ford has great new/upcoming products, they just don't want to sell them to everyone.

Re: BRONCO ...thread continued

The way i read it, Bronco was to be a North American market only but maybe read that as LHD markets only. I think Ford wants to keep going with Everest in Asia Pacific mostly RHD markets or at least not change anything this side of CY2021 (NG Ranger)

My guess is that it will launch in the North American market and the following year, expand.

The Everest is more like a Non-TRD Pro 4Runner than a Wrangler.


For more serious off-roading it usually requires a lift to improve its approach and departure angles and rugged tires like this military variant modified by Arquus for the French Military.


The Jeep I usually see being compared to the Everest is the Grand Cherokee.

If Jeep can sell both the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler in Asia-Pacific and most global markets, Ford should be able to sell the upcoming Bronco alongside the Everest in Asia-Pacific.

Bronco is an icon. If they don't want to sell it globally because of Everest it's like saying they shouldn't sell Mustang because Mondeo comes in a liftback.



Everyone is going to WANT a Bronco. They're dumb. They should sell it everywhere like Mustang. It's another image-builder for the brand that I'm sure will be a hit anywhere it's offered.

I really don't know what they have planned for expansion of a more global Bronco, but regardless of what happens, they can always increase. I really think that Bronco, and even the baby Bronco, will be massive hits for Ford.
