New Ford Bronco Review: Meet the new Top Dog
The Ford Bronco came back with one job: to beat the Wrangler. And it delivered. BIG TIME.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you a review of the new Ford Bronco. And let's get one thing straight: Ford got this right.
The teases and delays have only amped up the hype for the highly-anticipated release of the new Bronco. And this is one of the few times that all the hype delivers, and even over-exceeds expectations. At this point, I've reviewed 14 cars, and there hasn't been a single one that has left me as impressed as the Bronco did. My particular loaner Bronco was had the Badlands trim, which is the most capable Bronco in the business. The massive 33-inch mud tires capsuling the equally impressive 17-inch beadlock wheels immediately sets the tone for what this new Bronco has to offer.
Our test Bronco started at $57,655, and that's partly due to the $11,500 in options that our Cyber Orange Bronco was equipped with. One thing that surprised me the most is the sheer size of the Bronco, and while part of it may have to do with the flared fenders, the rest of it just has to do with the sheer girth of the Bronco. And thus, a girthy turbo-four cylinder is what powered our Bronco. That engine is good for 300 horsepower (on premium fuel) and 325 lb-ft of torque, a really healthy number for this truck.
The technology on our Bronco was rather impressive too, with a massive 12-inch screen being the focal-point of the interior. However, the G.O.A.T drive-mode selector is also impressive. Oh yeah, and don't forget that it's essentially a convertible.
