Ford Bronco reportedly looks retro, has removable doors

According to the attendees, who spoke to the news outlet on condition of anonymity, the Bronco will also have a fully-removable top that can be stored on board, and will be offered in both two-door and four-door models, which Ford hasn't yet publically confirmed.

It was previously rumoured the new SUV would be available only in four-door guise, which pretty much goes against everything the Bronco stands for.

In states where it is illegal to drive without side mirrors, Wrangler drivers have to install aftermarket mirrors when they take the doors off. This, more than anything, proves Ford is taking direct aim at Jeep, trying to break the Wrangler supremacy that has reigned since the Bronco's departure in 1996. Dealers said it has round headlights and a rectangular grille with "Bronco" written across the front, and from the teaser we know it will have a rear-mounted spare tire.

The event centered around a two-door Bronco that will be sold with a removable hardtop and removable doors that can be stowed inside the cargo area, sources tell Automotive News. A hybrid option will also be available. Dealers were reportedly excited, one proclaiming the prototype was "twice as cool" as expected.

This Ranger-bodied prototype is likely the new Bronco in disguise. Apparently, Ford will be marketing all four vehicles as a utility-focused almost-subbrand, but the automaker is not going so far as to label the models as such. Ford teased the Bronco's shape a year ago.
