FORD DESIGNER’S THOROUGH RESEARCH:
Director Landin revealed that while the new Bronco was in the process of remaking, the designers observed every little aspect related to it by taking it for a test drive with some customers. They took it on ‘snowboarding, off-road adventures, hiking and bike trailers, and camping’, in order to pinpoint every little flaw in it so they can work on it to avoid any future inconvenience.
Landin further said that they are working to fix the mirrors on the removable doors, also the main issue of ‘removable doors’ themselves because buyers were not comfortable in leaving the doors at home while going on long road trips.
