Check this out, was posted up in Expo Portal.

I think this is their 2014 offering, Ford Troller, made in Brazil and it is a Diesel...

Looks like an FJ Cruiser on steroids, doesn't it?

Funny you mention that because this is supposed to be Ford's answer to the FJ Cruiser in that market.

Too bad they didn't take styling cues from the early Bronco (like FJ Cruiser did from FJ40). Looks way too cartoonish for me.

it's still just a "FORD"

The headlights looking Camaro-esque, but I really dig the integrated snorkel up over the windshield and the built in winch. Would be cool if the top was removable!

I thought this was the last year for the FJ Cruiser. :confused:

Yep in the US market. Not sure about Brazil and Australia, I think they just got the FJC a few years ago. Can you imagine buying an FJ in Australia vs a 79 series.... No way would I do that.

That has a couple nice elements to it but as a whole is really ugly. A "new" early Bronco would be uber cool. But I suspect it would have the same short comings as the FJC did to the FJ40.

Yeah...would've gone more retro Early Bronco and less cartoon/robot.

I'm not a Ford guy by any means, but I will own an EB one day...all stock, orange or red, not cut up with a canoe on top. :-)

I wonder if the winch and snorkel are fake/simulated - they look it. And who came up with 'troller'? - it sounds like a creepy guy in your neighborhood or someone with bad Internet manners. Maybe it has a better meaning in the country in which it's sold. At least it's diesel!
