Coupes are all but useless because of their difficult to access rear seat, and a tall SUV is that much more difficult.
Why invest in something few would want.

I'm almost positive they announced it will be 2 and 4 door.

When this topic came up when the teaser image was first revealed, Ford product communications manager Mike Levine replied "Ford never said it would be four-door only."

Style, substance and hopefully, a 2 door and manual option
Ford has never offered both 4 and 2 door Bronco back when they did not have a plethora of other SUV's along side it, and they won't start now with what is a niche product.
The Bronco in the teaser looks like a short 2-door though, based on the position of the side mirrors in relation to the wheel arches.

If it is a 4-door, it must have short/small rear doors.

Imagine front styling not too far removed from this contemporary rendering, but in a boxy more traditional style like old, complete with fender flares.
And Ford has never offered both 4 and 2 door Bronco back when they did not have a plethora of other SUV's along side it, and they won't start now with what is a niche product. Trust me, I have owned Bronco, and jumping up into the back seat is for kids only. However, you may get your wish for a manual.


My uncle was a Cadillac man but always bought Broncos. I loved borrowing his broncos. And he had three young daughters...two doors weren’t an issue but that was full size so maybe the new one will be exclusively 4 door but I think ford would be missing an opportunity to offer something unique and as someone else posted, not everyone wants or needs a 4 door. I remember the popularity of “personal” 2 door SUVs..blazer, bronco II, pathfinder, 4Runner. (I know that the 2dr pathfinder was short lived, but the 4dr retained a sporty look on the same wb) You can’t tell me there isn’t a market for these anymore...people can only buy what is available.
And nearly everything available is soccer-mobiles, so ford has an excellent opportunity to appeal to a different crowd. Let everyone else buy their escapes, equinoxes, crvs and the plethora of boring Nissan suvs.

well there has been a couple of new commercials beside the one mentioned here... they look pretty **** good.. Finally Ford is not listening and watching the other guys knock Ford.. The main commercial doesn't need to show the trucks.. they have their own..

I'm pretty sure that it doesn't look like this. Just wanna do some Mach 1 chops (actually after all the teasers this name looks pretty appropriate).

Nice chop!

We may not see this much Mustang design in the Mach1 but if we do, I wouldn't be surprised. A little Mustang DNA can only help Ford's crossover/sedan redefinition since it is the only desirable/aspirational car they have or had. I like the bit of Land/Range Rover look in their bigger SUVs so, IMO, these design trends hold promise for Ford's future prospects among consumers.

Love seeing that old school Bronco
You know, I was just thinking - the only thing that would've made this commercial better is if they had had 2 vehicles on that trailer - the old Bronco, and behind it on the trailer, the new one, but under a cover, and have that cover start to come off right before switching screens.

Nice chop!

BORG has said it's very heavily influenced by Mustang cues.
