The all-purpose vehicle was first manufactured in 1965, and it was released as a 1966 model. It quickly became a staple for those that wanted to live an adventurous life. That was due to its off-roading capability, CB radio, extra gas tank, and winch.
The car saw five generations over the following 30 years. Those generations each brought something new to the vehicle and it slowly grew from being a compact SUV to approximately roughly the size of a Ford F-150.
The final generation of the model was released in 1996 when Ford decided to switch its focus to the Ford Expedition. From there, everyone thought the car was done. Then, over a decade later, Ford announced that it would be releasing a new version of its classic vehicle in 2021.
The first 1966 model wasan off-road, all-purpose vehicle with a six-cylinder engine and 105 horsepower at 4,400rpms. There were three body types available in the first release, a two-door wagon, a half-cab pickup, and an open-body roadster. The base price was about $2,194 (today that equals $18,524) and 24,000 of them were sold in the first year.
The first incarnation of the vehicle was made until 1978 when the second generation was released.
The company announced its plan to bring back the classic Ford Bronco in 2017 at the North American International Auto Show. At that point, they said the tentative release date was sometime in 2021.
In Canada, there'll be up to six model options sold by Ford Canada. The company has stayed true to the vehicle's off-road history, the new model features a solid rear axle, removable doors, and countless customizable options.
The exact details of the hybrid are still a subject of speculation but there are a few items that are highly expected in the revolutionary vehicle. Consumers and experts speculated that a 3.0 litre EcoBoost V6 engine with an electric motor and 10-speed transmission.
Those expectations changed slightly when people got a glimpse of the owner's manual. It looks like the vehicle could be a plug-in model, which is exciting for those in the market for an electric car. If this is true, drivers can expect to go a whole day's drive without producing any emissions.
It's also expected to come with a solar roof option, which could improve the car's fuel efficiency by up to 7%. This is a great eco-friendly option for those living in sunny areas, if you choose a bright enough parking spot you can even have the vehicle charging while you work or shop. Ford reports that roughly five hours of daily charging will result in an increase of about 800 miles early.
TheFord Bronco Sport is the G.O.A.T. of the new line. It stands for Goes Over Any Type Of Terrain, which should give you a fair indication of what it's capable of.
It comes with a turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder, an eight-speed transmission, four-wheel drive, LED headlights, frontal collision mitigation, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and a host of other features that make it a top of the line sports vehicle.
The features of the new release vary depending on the model you pick and which upgrades you choose, but let's discuss some of the best features.
