    Ah, that makes a bit more sense.

    ... except that it makes very little sense in terms of branding. Would Jeep do a "Wranger Sport" that was so far from Wrangler in off-road capability? (Don't get me wrong - I really like Renegade, but it's primarily a car, whereas Wrangler is a true 4x4)

    That’s assuming Bronco and Bronco Sport will be as differentiated as Renegade and Wrangler as far as performance. Former posters here described Bronco as a “show pony”....don’t know if that’s still true since Bronco has been under development so long everything could’ve changed since then. If Bronco is on the level of, say Cherokee Trailhawk and Sport is on the level of Renegade or Compass Trailhawk...perhaps that’s a better comparison? No idea...just speculating. And this assumes Ford ever reveals these two vehicles, they’ve been stuck in “coming soon” for quite a while.

    Edit: The Bronco will be RWD based off of the Ranger platform, and the Bronco Sport will be FWD and is based on the Escape platform....yeah, my comparison to Cherokee and the others is probably way off. It’s been a looooooong day.....

    To get back on topic....as far as a Dakota...if they built one, I’d definitely be interested. I’m a Jeep guy, and I love the Gladiator, but you never know by the time I get around to actually purchasing something.

    The “real” Bronco seems like it might be at a similar level of capability as the 4-Runner. Just a guess though.

    edit: forgot a word.

    Yeah, we’ll see. It certainly has the potential to be an interesting vehicle, but we won’t know until it is finally revealed. This darned virus has pushed back a lot of product for everybody I’m sure. I guess even if stuff is revealed, nothing will be hitting dealer lots anytime soon until the factories are able to start running again.

    Hurry up and wait. Ugh.

    It is the smaller Bronco Sport which will be more Renegade sized.

    All of the issues I had with my Renegade were electrical and transmission related.

    I can confirm that the original Grand Wagoneer plan will come to fruition as the 3 row Grand Cherokee.

    What? I thought the 3 row GC was unibody and the Grand Wagoneer was BoF?

    Yes, the original Wagoneer/Grand Wagoneer plan was unibody (a Durango-sized Jeep, if you will).
    Now the Durango-sized Jeep is inside the Grand Cherokee family with the ever-upcoming Wagoneer products being BOF.
    The change of Wagoneer from unibody to BF was way back in Nov. 2016.

    It makes complete sense if you look at the fact that Ford is making Bronco into a sub-brand within Ford. Think of the Bronco name being the same as Jeep.

    At this rate every vehicle in Ford’s lineup will be named either Mustang or Bronco.

    Taking a page from FCA NA, every new product is named Jeep or Ram. :D

    At one time. Chrysler tried to make every vehicle some variation on LeBaron, while at the same time Oldsmobile was making everything a Cutlass.

    True. I remember the Cutlass, Cutlass Supreme, Cutlass Ciera...among others.

    That's the one! And the new Defender, below, for the fake vents details...

    In fairness, that old Disco was based on a Ford Focus/Mondeo (Ford's EUCD unibody with additional cross-members underneath), so what goes around, comes around...

    From the spied pics it's looking more Compass sized than Renegade.

    You're thinking of the Freelander. The Discovery was a big RWD unibody with a ladder frame attached. The Freelander was the small front driver based on a Ford chassis.

    Thank you. I was about to say, this doesn't look like a unibody:
