From last month...


Take a gander at the exposed sheetmetal pictured above: you're looking at the rear end of the upcoming Ford "baby Bronco" SUV, albeit in unfinished, body-in-white form. Our spy photographers managed to get a shot of the new crossover's production body, which—when combined with earlier spy photos and leaked images of this new model—give us a pretty good idea of what the car will look like when it debuts in the near future.

That sheet metal shown looks exactly like the cell phone images on page one of this thread,

And it looks great.
The baby Bronco is going to look amazing based on the leaked images and spy photos we've seen.

You guys in North America and South America are lucky since the baby Bronco will be exclusive to your regions.

Here in Asia-Pacific (now part of Ford's new "International Markets Group") we might get a C-segment Ford SUV based on the upcoming Mahindra SUV seen in the link below.

Ford wants to challenge Jeep but refuses to sell the same vehicles globally like Jeep. "One Ford" could have worked if managed properly like many of its rivals.

Still hoping by some miracle Ford decides to offer it in other left-hand drive markets outside North & South America.

So they took a Defender and put a Raptor front end on it?

When we 100% know it looks nothing like this? Good work, carscoops.

I didn't bother to click the link, as such an off rendering doesn't want to give them clicks for it lol.

Good lord. Musk will have people orbiting the moon before Ford gets the Bronco out, right in time for a big recession.

Yup, they are having a heck of a hard time making this work on top of the Escape/Focus platform - lots of chassis issues and durability of parts are showing up...leadership is a POS!

And reminders:

- interior is exactly the same as the Escape, with minor changes to materials, etc...
- slight modification to chassis to accommodate for different parts

And I warned before, this was not coming out this year...

Is there proof and a credible source for this?

In March 2018, when Ford announced that a "Yet-to-be-named off-road small utility" would join the SUV range, it had NO launch date.The two new SUVs announced for 2019 were the all-new Escape and all-new Explorer.

The announcement of a second compact SUV (baby Bronco) was made just one month before the first Escape prototype wearing its final body was caught testing in April 2018.

The first baby Bronco aka "Yet-to-be-named off-road small utility" prototype was spotted in July 2019.

in November 2018 leaked images showing computer generated images of the baby Bronco being presented to dealers only meant the SUV's design was finalized at that point.

If there is durability concerns for small Bronco, that is a good thing.....meaning Ford did not just throw new sheet metal over existing Escape platform, which is what you would expect from the Asian competition. Instead, Ford is developing new or heavily modified underpinnings capable to be adequately rugged for medium off duty use, well above the Escape. Timeline remains unchanged, from what I know. So if the 6 or 8 months post Escape launch increase by several months, so be it. What matters is the product. Reveal has always been 1st qtr 2020 however.

Timelines changed significantly, the Bronco Sport or Adventurer should be on sale in Q1 2020, now they are presenting in Q1 2020 lol

In March 2018, Ford only announced two new Ford SUV launches for 2019, the all-new Escape and all-new Explorer.

Ford NEVER Said the baby Bronco aka "Yet-to-be-named off-road small utility" was going to be launched in 2019 or go on sale Q1 of 2020. They never gave a date.

They'll also be launching a Crossover EV next month.

Rumors from publications are not always accurate, follow what's on the press release.

Ford now said that the Bronco will be released first (1st quarter 2020), follow by Bronco Scout(July-August 2020). Possibly in dealerships November 2020 for Bronco, March 2021 for Bronco Scout. Why to long for me! Going to look at alternatives now!

Ford is pulling all its energy on the Mustang EV crossover release in L.A. Auto Show. EVs are not selling unless it is a Tesla model!
