    I hope so, but you can never tell what the car buying public will go for. A few years ago Nissan discontinued the Xterra, another tough body-on-frame truck-based SUV because the soft Pathfinder was outselling it something like 4:1, so maybe there isn't much of a market for something like that. Time will tell.

    I'll agree that the buying public are frequently a fickle lot. However, the Xterra really didn't have any legacy product to tap or build upon. Bronco, on the other hand, has solid history and a robust fan base. The new Bronco fills a void in the Ford product line between pick up trucks and the au courant, pussified SUVs.

    I agree. Hot running 4 squirrel engine with a turbocharger. What could possibly go wrong? Same deal with the new Ranger pickup.

    "On the same night the 2021 Ford Bronco was revealed and the reservation site launched, the one-year-only First Edition sold out. That was 3,500 vehicles reserved in one evening. Obviously demand was high, so Ford saw fit to go ahead and double production of the First Edition. However, it's still sold out."

    Reservations are not a contract to buy, but still a decent measure of interest. I have wanted offroad vehicle for a while. Owned two Broncos in the past. '70 and '86. Enjoyed them both. I think the basic model with Sasquatch Package would be sweet.

    It's pretty amazing what sells these days. Not so long ago folks were crying about gas-guzzling SUVs being crammed down our throats. Now we can't get enough of them.

    Meanwhile the fuel-efficient models that some of us bought are being penalized because state fuel tax incomes are well below exceptions. We bought a 50mpg+ hybrid a few years ago and our annual assessment has doubled because we don't contribute enough to the tax coffers. It's almost cheaper now to buy a gas-guzzler again. :(
