    Very cool.
    Unfortunately I don't think the Blazer will make a showing.

    there is a teaser of the SIZE of it and it LOOKS wider and SHORTER than a Wrangler unlimited BUT once "cut down" to street width should be almost the same as the Wrangler OR Tacoma

    I like what I see in "rough" dimensions and proportions

    I'm liking what I'm seeing from the TLF video I was watching. Looks like production rear taillights and production grill piece.

    Bronco is shaping up to be the most important product launch in years at ford. Hopefully it isn’t plagued w quality and value issues like the recent explorer and aviator.

    It seems I’ve been waiting for a decade since the announcement of bronco returning...I don’t think I’ll be disappointed. *cough* blazer.

    Meanwhile at GM, they decided the BOF GMC midsize SUV wasn't a good idea after all...

    GM could have come up with another name for its mid-size crossover. Many people didn't like the idea of slapping the name "Blazer" on a crossover.

    GM should have treated the "Blazer" name the same way Ford treated the "Bronco" name.

    There's a two door and a four door version, the latter is about the size of Edge.
    The rear d pillar and hatch are missing off the Bronco R for obvious reasons.

    The Bronco R Prototype's body seems to be based on the design of the 2-door version, that's why there's no D-pillar, just the shape of a long "faux " rear side window.
