Those of you who have been pushing for a new iteration of the Ford Bronco in North America be warned, this next bit of news may be a little frustrating for you. Ford has pulled the wraps off of its Ford Troller T4, a boxy, short-wheelbase SUV which is the modern day embodiment of the Blue Oval’s original fun-loving off-roader.
The Troller is the first new vehicle from the Brazilian off-road vehicle manufacturer since Ford scooped the company up in 2007. Under its hood sits a 3.2-liter diesel engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The press release makes no mention of power figures, or four-wheel drive, though were assuming the T4 does send power to each of those knobby mixed-use tires.
Other off-road focused features include a high-mounted intake for wading through water and mounting points for a winch. It also has a new “sky roof” system, a two-pane glass roof which lets natural light into the cabin.
The Troller is only destined for the Brazilian market as of now. Due to the markets and their unique demands, it seems very unlikely Ford would decide to bring the Troller over to North America, but we’d be impressed if they did. As long as we can keep them out of the hands of former pro football players turned criminals, we’d be all for having the Troller in North America badged as a Bronco.
