I wouldn't be surprised if they bought it back when they move the Expedition over to the new F150 platform in a couple years.

Defenders, nice ones, are upwards of 30,000 dollars for trucks going on 20 years old.

If you buy a Defender at this point, you're a connoisseur of automobiles, and a bad ass.

If I had that kind of change to swing on a toy i'd use infrequently, i'd buy a defender in a heartbeat. Ultimate badassery in 4WD form.

I present thee, the ICON Defender

You could always get a 2door Land Rover Evoque and pretend you have a badass old school offroader.

So, it looks like the Bronco is going to be a real thing in a few years:

Quote:
Will retro ever go out of style? We think not—and based on the teaser image we’ve seen, the 2021 Ford Bronco will have a boxy body that pays tribute to its classic forebears. It won’t be the first off-road SUV to take this design approach: Toyota’s FJ Cruiser wore sheetmetal inspired by FJ40-series Land Cruisers from the ’60s. And, like its muse, the FJ Cruiser had trail-ready hardware to back up its rugged looks. As Ford prepares the new Bronco, here are some lessons from the FJ Cruiser we hope the engineering and design teams have drawn on as they set out to rebuild an icon.

https://www.automobilemag.com/news/2...ta-fj-cruiser/


Quote:
The Ford Bronco is finally coming back next year to enter the (relatively) affordable off-road SUV space largely dominated by Jeep’s Wrangler, and it will headline an eventual family of off-roaders that will include two- and four-door Broncos, a front-drive-based baby Bronco, and—as we reported last summer—a small unibody pickup. The latter two will be revealed soon enough, but for now here’s what we know about Ford’s reborn icon:

Two- and four-door versions will be available, as will rear- and four-wheel drive. According to Automotive News, FoMoCo revealed a two-door Bronco prototype at a shindig last month for top dealers in Palm Beach, Florida, and confirmed to its franchisees that a four-door model is coming, too. The dealers also saw the so-called “baby Bronco” (below) and Ford’s Mustang-inspired EV crossover that will offer 300 miles of range.

Revival of the small off roaders?
Jeep Wrangler gonna get some competish?

We know the Bronco is coming, they have a test mule out there and it looks like its using a Ford Raptor chassis with a shortened wheelbase.

Theres also a new Land Rover Defender coming out as well (mule also exists, I think on a shortened Discovery Sport Chassis?)

Toyota is making interesting products now so I can see them getting in on this at some point...probably not until they get their trucks on the TNGA platform at the earliest (plus the FJ cruiser was kind of big and fat, so maybe they could do something a bit smaller if they go for another shot at the segment?).

Hmm not sure what other manufacturers actually made small off roaders...Suzuki comes to mind, but they're gone from North America. However they do have a small one called the Jimney.
