If only it were true, but everything on this day contains a grain of salt or two:

"One thing’s for sure, if you’ve gotten this far into our story and are as excited about wheeling in this new generation Ford Bronco as we are, this minor detail might just make your blood boil. This was all part of an elaborate scheme for one of our biggest April Fools pranks ever."

Ironically, it probably would sell.

Ironically, a huge truck based classic 2 door beast would also seem way more honest and sympathetic than the 768th cross over variation that is neither SUV nor minivan. At least to me. But that's probably because of childhood memories of my dad's 2 Chevy K5 Blazers back in the early 80ies ;-)

For the love of god build it and make the rear canopy removable like the old ones (won't happen but wishful thinking). The F-150 front end on this works well with the look.

Were you in the states or Europe? K/5 Blazers in Europe would have been quite the attention getters.

Actually my father was working in various Arab countries back then (mostly Iraq), where gas was basically as good as free. Not too bad. but nevertheless, in Austria (as well as some othe non EU countries - AUstria didn't join the EU until the mid 90ies) US Cars were rather popular, and you still see some Landyacts and K5 BLazers occassionally here (in my neighbourhood there is a K5, a late 60ies Olds Tornado and FIrebird, plus a ca. 75 Chevy Caprice, and I live in a smaller suburb of Vienna, to ut that to scale). Even the 2004 - 2013 Mustang has been comparably popular here, as well as many Chryslers before their uglifying ca. 2007.

Shows promise...could be a decent challenger to Jeep actually.

Oh yes, a two door off-road car that hopefully looks good, like 2 door Mitsubishi Pajero rather than 2 door Toyota Prado.
