    Over the years, different types of vehicles fall out of favor (sedans, station-wagons, convertibles, 2-door coupes, etc.) - but are replaced by a different type of vehicle. I suspect the new Bronco models will help create increased market volume for that type of vehicle.
    I suspect you are right, I am curious to see how the sales volume story goes. Sporty cars used to be the image cars everyone wanted, my gut tells me Wranger type vehicles have taken over the image car role as the desire for sporty cars appears to be waning.

    An electric version maybe.

    Yet another boring grocery getter designed for housewives who think missing the driveway is off roading. Once again, GM defiles a storied nameplate. Ford and Jeep get it. GM again sucking hind teat. Fire Mary Barro.

    As I've said before, was really hoping the Blazer or Trailblazer would be a suitable replacement to the former S/T Blazer/Jimmy.
    However it is not the case.

    This thing can barely blaze a speed bump let alone a trail. It should be called the Chevy LotRoamer or something.
