About time the bronco returned. Now, if they will just tone down the clown in the front end design...

I don't hate the front end, but it is a little "busy." Overall, I think it looks rugged.

I am glad to see the Bronco coming back. This is a vehicle I would consider purchasing, but yes the front end could use a little "mellowing".

Is this just a prototype or is Ford really going to produce it?

It is a concept vehicle, now that the production of the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will be ending in 2015, Ford SVT said they will produce the Ford SVT Bronco for the 2016 model year. It is based off of the 2014-2015 Ford F-150 Atlas Concept vehicle.
Here is a picture of a 2014 ford F-150 Atlas Concept vehicle.

That Bronco is nice looking. The 2015 f150 is also supposed to have an aluminum body. Ford is really on the ball right now.

Ford is also having to train all of the bodyshop personnel in every dealership about aluminum panel repair. Read an article from Ford that they had not completely thought that aspect out until someone yo-yo'd up a tester.

Personally, other than the difficulty of washing the front end of the Bronco, I'd leave that styling alone. Big, bad, brute. As a longtime owner of Bronco II's, I love the look of a modified, bada$$ menacing full-sized Bronco. No one else will have a version of it, and bring on a 4 door to replace the Expedition. Every soccer mom will want one to deliver little Sue and Johnny to school, get her groceries and drive to work. Every businessman will want to drive up to a customer in one, every red-blooded male will have a poster of one on his door.

In my line of work, a large, boxy, strong looking (and performing) truck is a must. Something that looks as if it would crush a Prius. My customers and prospective customers do not consider talking to you unless you are in something that looks the part. My Titan looks like a battering ram so they accept it, but if I showed up in a car, a smooth SUV, or a small truck, they would show me the door. Immediately.

This Bronco will be a hit, but a 4 door will be even better.

Yes. I have hauled WAYYYY more than, and gone in areas my truck was never, ever designed for. Stupid weight that the DOT would crap about, but it has to be done. I know some people raise hell with folks that drive pickups, admonishing them for their carbon footprint, but mine has a load every time it moves. I use mine and would go to war in it if needed, because I trust it. It is my friend, my partner and has gotten me out of terrible situations that we encounter in the field.

If you truly use your truck, you know what I mean by that. Have I thanked God, and then kissed the hood of it after it got me and a co-worker away from some inbred, backwoods idiots shooting at us? You betcha.

I like the idea of Ford using Aluminum on the new truck to save weight, but is it as durable? I'd be rather embarrassed if I drove up in that Bronco, bumped a pole and it caved it the fender.

The Audi A8 has been manufactured with an all aluminum body (and aluminum body parts) from June 1994 up until now.
 
The newer Jaguar XJ8 models that have been on sale (brand new at Jaguar dealerships) from the spring of 2003 up until now also have an all aluminum body and aluminum body parts.
 
You would have to talk to people who own them (or have owned them) and repair them to find the answer.
 
A spokesperson for the ford motor company had said that: "Their goal is to reduce the overall weight of the 2015 ford F-150 by about 700 pounds, by using the new all aluminum body and aluminum body parts, when compared to the weight of the 2014 and older (Metal and Steel Body) ford F-150's".

Too much Judge Dredd in these type of newer styling exercises. Any updates on the durability of these aluminum bodies (F series) GM seems to be hammering them in recent ads with videos of concrete blocks being dropped into the bed.
