The Ford Bronco is an off-road oriented sport utility vehicle that is produced by Ford Motor Company. It’s traditionally been a body-on-frame, truck based vehicle, but has taken forms ranging from midsize like the original Bronco, to full-sized Bronco built in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The smaller Ford Bronco II attempted to compete with the Jeep Cherokee as a smaller entry during the 1980’s, but didn’t catch on the way the automaker had hoped. By 1996, the last Ford Bronco rolled off the assembly line. Fifteen years later, Ford is building an all-new Bronco, once again truck-based, but more adventure-ready than ever before. For those looking for something smaller, there’s the Escape-based Bronco Sport.
