The Mustang has shown it, now the Bronco comes: Ford wants to give its model program more contour sharpness with icons. We show what the new Ford Bronco has as a cooler off -roader and why it has to come to Europe as quickly as possible.

The two mid -fifties at Oceanside fishing port in southern California are completely out of the house when they see the bright red bronco in the parking lot. “Is it finally on the street?“, Says the gray -haired fishing fan,“ looks great. I wanted to order one too. But none of the dealers could tell me whether it would have been available in spring.“The other sun worshiper also pulled out the smartphone and took photos of the new US boy all around. "I would take it immediately," he beams under his baseball cap, "if I have 100.$ $ $ – how about? Give me it?"

Ford Bronco: Cult model in the USA

The Ford Bronco arouses desires that did not exist for many years; If at all at the Blue Oval. For a long time, the Ford fans had to wait for the Bronco.

"Want to continue to lead people into the wilderness"

“We founded the Bronco family to improve every aspect of the off-road adventure, and equip it with first-class chassis hardware and exclusive technologies in order to put the bar in the robust 4×4 segment and further in the wilderness to lead", So Ford CEO Jim Farley.

The customer has the choice between a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbo with 270 hp, which was discontinued in the Mustang due to perseverance and the much more suitable 2.7 EcoBoost, which provides an impressive 228 kW / 310 hp and is linked to a well -coordinated ten -speed automatic. The new Bronco has kept the charm and design of the old model. He drives himself like a modern off -road vehicle with admittedly noticeably high focus. So you shouldn’t be on the road too quickly on winding roads. But you can, because depending on the tire, the bronco is up to 160 or 180 km/h fast and offers a practical consumption of 10.8 liters super at 100 kilometers.

The stately ground clearance of around 30 centimeters ensures that you can also be on the move away from paved roads. The basic version can also be obtained with a seven-speed manual circuit, but this should hardly have a chance against the automatic versions. Different driving programs ensure that the bronco comes through scree fields, snow slopes, mud or sand. The wading depth through water is over 85 centimeters. “Similar to the first generation model, the square proportions, the short overhangs and the wide keeping of Bronco are optimized for off-road adventures", So Bronco chief designer Paul Wraith, “The side profile has a flat, straightforward surface with clear edges and robustly exhibited fenders."

Lego and Playmobil feeling

The Ford Bronco has something of a Lego or Playmobil model in details. Switches, operating modules and body settails – everything is like a cast and perfect for an American leisure vehicle. The Bronco as Badlands or Wildtrak can even be obtained with off -road tires up to its size of 35 inches.

With a few simple steps, the roof modules can be removed in individual segments for two- and four-door drivers and stowed in the back a little in the back, where the rear seats are more fold up, because for real personal transport is more suitable. But on request it can also be done above without. In addition to this multi -part hard shell roof, there is also a soft top on request, whereby the frameless doors can also be removed with a little more effort – just like the Jeep Wrangler. The two also play in a league at the price. The basic model of the Ford Bronco 2.3 starts at 28.500 US dollars. Purchase tip is the Outer Banks with the 2.7 Ecoboost V6 engine, which with partial leather seats, the luxury package along with sound and navigation system as well as a few nice details instead of the 38.000 then almost 51.000 dollars costs. So the Ford Bronco would also be a hit in Europe – bring it down.

    And the jeep is not a G-Class. And now? Nobody said that these two vehicles would have to be played against each other. The Bronco is another off -road vehicle, not as ugly as many other cars, for example the Jeep Renegade. Which is ultimately just a copy of an off -road vehicle. In this respect you are right, the bronco is not a jeep.
