    Certainly wasn't aluminum and didn't look like it was galvanized to me. It may have had a primer on it.

    I would be beyond astonished if Ford builds a solid front axle Bronco. I'm expecting another crossover SUV thing like the new Blazer.

    Looks like an F150 front end shrunk down a bit. Looks good to me though. I priced out a new one with all the trimmings I wanted for 34k before discounts. Not bad compared to the gladiator or colorado ZR2 with the 2.8 at 50k.

    They keep telling us how much we want 4 doors but I wish they would give us a choice and find out.

    I'll adjust the title. My bad.

    I agree they do look similar, but that is only on the outside, big differences underneath that body!

    Seems to be a lot of vehicle for that little engine.. I still say they need to build a "Grand Wagoneer" on a ram 2500 cummins chassis about the size of an excursion..

    Pretty limited credibility on that article. 4 of the 20 issues are from the same vehicle.
    Then many are issues that are not limited to jeep. Ie airbags. Not saying jeeps aren't good or bad but our experience with our bought new chebby made in Korea aren't good.
    The Steering dithers. Paint flaked off the trunk at 3 years old, Radio always goes back to am/FM and doesn't sync with my phone until I'm already at work or home. The engine is wholly unresponsive and you have to drive like a turbine aircraft. It shakes when the motor turns and makes noise doing so. The tires are too small and it only gets 34mpg.
