Bronco looks different:


But the Baby Bronco on the teaser looks different too. It looks like they changed the design of the Baby Bronco a bit since that teaser (look at the headlights area).



Btw Baby Bronco's profile reminds me a bit of Maveric/Escape's one.

Is the baby Bronco going to be RWD?

I am really glad that full Bronco is BOF, while baby is not. Baby reminds me a bit of the Jeep Renegade, a vehicle I rented for 3 weeks in a very mountainous country (Greece). I suspect Ford’s version competes directly with it, and should be just as capable off-road, which translated means, adequate for most. Bronco will be quite capable, and no doubt will be directly compared to Wrangler, and will do doubt fall a bit short in some off-road comparisons. But I guarantee you the Bronco will not fall short where it is driven 99% of the time – pavement.

Styling might be more Renegade-like but I assume its size is closer to the Jeep Compass or slightly bigger since this is Focus-based.

Baby Bronco is Focus-based, so FWD platform.

I'm wondering if its AWD system will have Ford's Technology Terrain Management System.

Ok wasn't sure. It could have 4x4 like the Escape does.

The car looks very good. Rugged, capable, modern but with some retro flavor. If Ford sell it in Europe, will be a great succes here.

About the “pic leaked”, I suspect this picture come from the Ford’s marketing office. Ford needs the customers talk about the new cars to come. Ford is very careful keeping a secret. This is not a casual mistake... This and the double Automobile Magazine’s reviews of the Lincoln flagships, will keep the people talking about Ford and Lincoln for a while

This thing will sell like hotcakes.

It has the same rugged look as the 1st gen Escape with Bronco styling cues.
It has changed quite a bit from what they showed employees. Agreed, it will sell quite well. And alongside the Bronco, which looks much better yet, I hope they steal back customers that Jeep has taken from Ford.
