QOTD: What Do You Want to Ask Ford About the Bronco?
I’m currently sweating my you-know-what off somewhere near-ish to Austin, Texas, in order to drive the Ford Bronco, which is probably the most anticipated vehicle of the year, and I want to give you the chance to play journalist.
If you have questions you’d like asked of Ford (preferably about the Bronco, of course), insert them in the comments below.
If this sort of interactive post works, we might use it on future car launches, or at least select ones. Should this idea work, credit the bourbon I had after dinner. If it flops, blame the bourbon.
Here are the rules of engagement: I’ll check in when I can and relay questions to the appropriate Ford people. We won’t break the embargo, which is set for next week, so don’t try to trick us into spilling driving impressions. Be patient — the day is busy and I might not be able to reply quickly, and I probably won’t be able to reply to all questions. Off-topic and obvious joke queries will be ignored.
Bonus Internet points will go to those who ask questions that we in the auto press tend to inadvertently overlook.
So, fire away. What do you want to know about the big Bronco?
I'm starting to think Ford shoulda styled the front of the Maverick more in line with the Bronco, or made it a submodel.
Does Ford have the ability to manufacture Bronco at Ford Thailand Manufacturing in Rayong? Would Bronco manufactured in Thailand be subject to significant tariffs if imported to USA/Canada? Will Ford sell Bronco in Australia, in Asia, in Europe? If so, will these units be assembled in Michigan?
The Wrangler is great for towing, since the Transfer Case can be put in neutral and steering wheel doesn't lock - will they do the same for the Bronco? Will the Bronco have a roof that can easily be opened and closed, or will it be more like setting up a tent?
Ask them with all the trouble with hard tops, why don’t you just have all the Broncos have connections (power, water etc) for the hard top..that way the customer can order a soft top and buy a hard top later. As it is now, if you order a soft top it doesn’t come with connections for hard top. This is a deal breaker for so many who would order a soft top now and buy a hard top through parts
