    "First Photos of Real 2021 Ford Bronco Appear to Confirm Removable Doors, Roof"


    So in. A really big part of the Gladiator appeal to me is a multi-use vehicle which I can have as a regular daily driver SUV, do some moderate towing, some moderate off-roading, and then still have it as a family fun vehicle which can get the top and doors yanked off in the summer and we can goof around in the back country.

    BUT I'm extremely hesitant to spend Jeep money to get Fiat reliability.

    If the Bronco has Ranger towing capacity, it'll be more than my 4runner, which is technically able to move my boat but barely and if I take the wrong fishing lures it's probably over the limit and feels really, really sketchy. The EcoBoost engines seem to be really proven. And if the doors and roof come off and the whole thing is fun, then why not? I probably won't buy the first year but I could totally see this as my next vehicle.

    I checked out the Gladiator online. Optioned in a way that seemed reasonable to me, it was ~$48k MSRP.

    Well, that didn't take long.

    I'm sure modern materials are lighter, and these vehicles are smaller, but as the former owner of a '75 Blazer and. '71 Scout I'm not in love with removable hard tops.
