Interesting. But why do I not really trust Fords?

This article was linked in your post. This version looks interesting. (Wife doesn't like the skid plates)

15 years ago, I was a big Ford fanboy. I made a lot of money owning both their debt and stock. Their decision to stop selling all cars in America, except for the Mustang I feel will end up being a huge mistake for them.

The Focus in our garage, which was bought to be towed behind our RV, will probably be my last Ford product for a long long time.

(But if the Bronco ends up looking anything like the article I linked above, I might have to take a closer look)

There is a company in Denver that imports Holden Ute's, and converts them to left hand drive.

If I have to drive a funny looking small pickup, it might as well have a V8 in it

When I was last in Australia, I saw several left hand drive Suburbans/Tahoe’s,,, I guess a Ute getting the same treatment makes sense,,,
