    Yeah but it's kind of a pittance compared to the recall behemoth Ford. Hell, just one recall from Ford dwarfs that.

    Electric car maybe, electric truck no, hybrid truck yes. By the time you get enough batteries on the vehicle for long range towing the truck is going to weigh as much as loaded semi. Just my 2 cents ;). But I did reserve a Bronco and I'm keeping my tundra. Looking forward to a hybrid tundra in the next 5 to 10 years.

    I saw that; one bitten twice shy for me and Ford, but I have to admit that everyone I've ever known who's owned a Ranger has had almost NO issues; and they're doing a bunch of stuff with the Maverick (multi-position tailgate; 1-liter bottle holder in the doors; etc.) that's actually handy as hell.

    Very interested in it but i want to see what real world testing is like. Also interested if the aftermarket will tap into it much. On paper its the perfect truck for someone like me who doesn't tow, uses it as a daily driver, and offroads. But not sure how great it would be offroad or how much bigger tires or a lift would effect range, not to mention if thats even possible to upgrade given the tech in these trucks.

    Sorry but the bronco is fugly also. It’s way smaller than a bronco should be, should have been the bronco mini or bronco jr. then come out with a normal size bronco

    There are several versions. Don't confuse the quasi wanna be 4X4 Sport with the other models that aren't out yet.....

    I want to add...I bought a "new" Bronco in 1976 with the 302 V8. Was that normal size??? Or the lame ass series 2 after that? Or the full size Blazer looking Bronco after that? First thing I did was take a hacksaw and cut out the rear fender wells and put on some ABS flares. 2nd.....Hooker headers and Cherry Bombs with cutouts.....and Armstrong Tru Trac flotation tires....

    Just getting back from Yellowstone vacation and had a 4 runner. The Bronco and 4 Runner are comparable to size. The Bronco is based on the original Bronco. In person they look awesome to me at least and I'm deffenlty not alone.

    I think they look pretty good too and I really like how you can take the doors off and still have your mirrors .

    New and Ford = extended warranty at a minimum. Like others stated not enough range. I use a truck for truck things not as a commuter.

    Dumb question maybe but I don't know. Is 300 mile range at full use, will AC running full blast or running at night with lights lower the range? Also apartment people are out of luck with a 240v charger.

    They are out of luck with 110. I don't think they can run extension cords out to parking lot.
