Ford recently confirmed motorists who haven't reserved their 2021 Bronco yet will need to wait until 2022 to take delivery. Although it hasn't published the number of reservations it has received, an enthusiast forum keeping track of where and how customers are buying the off-roader pegs the number at nearly a quarter of a million.
Looks like a pregnant roller skate…:tsk:

I see a throwback design. It looks good up close and in person
It still looks like a pregnant roller skate up close, would rather have retro sheet metal on it because that's what people liked about it to begin with. If they had gone retro hopefully they would have made it a bit more rust resistant... :thumb:

When they quit making the Ranger here after 2011 they kept making them down under. And the current Ranger looks like what they kept making down under until they decided to pull out, it's design/styling is almost 10 years old...

I'll just keep driving my 88 until it chucks it's guts which may be awhile, still starts as soon as I hit the key and doesn't use any oil between oil changes leaks a bit though... :thumb:

I had a 86. Can't say it was much for longevity

Which engine did you have???

I've got the 2.9 and have been using synthetic in it since I bought it in 89 from a friend, we were both being assigned to Texas and his wimpy ass needed A/C so he got an 89 and did me a good deal on this one. I need to go thru the whole suspension and axles cause of the dry rot, worn ball joints and worn out bearings...

I don't recall what it started as but it ended up being blown. Threw a rod
It was a 4 cyl with a 4 or 5 speed manual

That was the 2.0L they were a bit weak so you had to wind the rubber band real tight to get anywhere this week. If it was 2 wheel drive the tranny was a Toyo Kogo if was 4x4 then it was a Shitsubishi (I'm on my 3rd one they don't like anything over stock horsepower) :tsk:
