I like the 2 door. The sport is a different drive train I bet. I have a feeling the sport is a transverse mounted engine with some sort of active driveline. Ford owns the technology I'm sure. I think it's probably like the Discovery sport

My initial impression of the Bronco is much higher than it was for the Defender. You can see the Ford & LR partnership still in there from some angles. And the Sport should be LR vehicle.

Definitely interested in seeing the 4 door in person and the sport has Ford/LR DNA all over it. From initial impressions it's going to kick the defenders ass.

You know who is going to benefit from this release as much as anyone? Jeep owners/enthusiast. Gone are the days of Jeep raking in the money because there is no competition in the marketplace.

I had almost talked myself into somewhat liking the new Defender and this makes me hate it all over again. Not that I needed it but all of talk from Magovern was bullshit. Realize the markets aren’t apples to apples but thi thing is square as a brick and is available with 16” wheels.

You haven't driven either one. You watched videos.

The Nufender was irrelevant even before it hit US soil. Land Rover makes chick cars and has been for quite some time.

35s and lockers out of the showroom, how much effort does it take for a Land Rover to accommodate 35" tires. Ford knocked it out of the park with the Bronco
