    Good they didn't go the whole retro thing, too.

    Here's a new/old Bronco for comparison

    Although Ford claiming it was the first SUV will have Jeep a little cranky as the Wagoneer pre dated the Bronco by two years.

    I reckon Ford Oz would be pushing hard for supply, the Bronco would be regarded as a halo car, like the Mustang.
    Bronco Sport might be a competitor in terms of sales/market. I can see some people who might like the idea of off-roading being attracted to the Bronco Sport instead of the new Deefer because of the inevitably cheaper price tag.

    But to say a car based on the same platform as the Focus is a rung above the Everest and a direct competitor to the Deefer is stretching it a bit Disco 4 vs new Defender comparison

    So it isn't the same platform as the 'proper' Bronco?

    Speaking of the Bronco Sport I'm guessing that it might have a chance of coming here, especially if there's RHD versions available for the UK.

    But the big Bronco is definitely LHD only so no chance of coming here.

    If there's enough clamour for it, Ford might do what they did with Mustang and make the next version a global product rather than US-centric.

    No, proper Bronco is on a development of the Ranger's T6 platform, body on frame.

    The Bronco Sport is on the C2 unibody car platform, same as the Focus, Escape etc.
