There's got to be a market for a small 4x4. Suzuki have done well out of it. My wife had a Rav4...and I ended up driving it more than she ever did! It was a cracking little car. My wife also had a Shogun Pinin, which was incredibly reliable, and I had a Shogun V6 - fantastic. But Mitsubishi have lost the plot now. I didn't realise until the other day that the Suzuki Grand Vitara, which is amazingly small, has a 2.4 litre petrol engine!

^^ And the Skoda Yeti, 4x4 with a 2.5l diesel engine. A very capable car and exceptionally well built.

It's not my cup of tea, as I drive a Fiat van all day, and it's crap. And when it went wrong, Fiat weren't interested...under warranty! I had to threaten to withhold my leasing payments.

I like that Bronco concept. More than the DC100. Nice straight lines and the angled front and rear corners would be great off the road. I believe there was even speculation that had windscreen vents Smile

Ford is bringing the Ranger back to the US. They are going to make some kind of Bronco. Everyone is pointing to the Bronco being Ranger's sibling vehicle, the Everest. If the new Bronco is a rebadged Everest, There will be a meltdown in the Ford enthusiast community.
However, recent news is that it will have solid axles and Ford is now swearing that it'll be a rough, tough, true off-road vehicle. Im not a big Ford fan these days but I am a former big Bronco owner (1994 Bronco XLT) and I would hate to see the Bronco return as a watered down half assed attempt to cash in on the iconic name.

But as of right now, the only people who know for sure what the Bronco is going to be is....the people working on the Bronco. Its not supposed to come out until 2020, so there's plenty of time to get to right.

I tend to prefer the Bronco to the DC100.

About time we have some US vehicles over here rather than Euroboxes. Watts Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts
