Ford Bronco Hasn't Seen Its Last Rodeo After All
When you are looking for a new vehicle, you have a lot of different styles to choose from. Pinning down the class that is right for you can be confusing, especially when you are married and the vehicle will be used by two different people at times. A sharp-looking muscle car, like the Camaro or Challenger, will always have a certain appeal, but there are also refined, quiet luxury cars that can draw you in from a different direction. Practicality can be a concern as well, and there are many fuel-efficient, relatively inexpensive forms of transportation in the marketplace. Of course, there are also numerous different pickup trucks that many people gravitate toward.
Making the final selection can leave you feeling a bit empty, because you are sacrificing certain things that the other options offered. For many, the ideal vehicle combines many different qualities, and this is one of the reasons sport utility vehicles have become so popular. You have a comfortable, quiet, and spacious interior, a somewhat sporty look, and you have the ability to flatten the back seat so you can have some hauling capabilities. Believe it or not, this automotive class did not always exist. There were off-road vehicles, like Jeeps, that could also be used on the road, but they were not considered to be true multipurpose vehicles like today's sport utility vehicles.
Many would say that the SUV genre got started with the introduction of the Ford Bronco, a vehicle that was first introduced for the 1966 model year. It was technically an off-road vehicle that was intended to compete with the Jeep CJ line at first, but it rapidly evolved. More and more people were attracted to the versatility, and it became a logical choice for families and daily commuters who enjoyed the great outdoors on weekends. The Ford Bronco had a 30-year run, but production was discontinued after the 1996 model year.
Now, the phoenix is rising from the ashes. The Ford Motor Company has announced that the Bronco is coming back, possibly for the 2020 model year. Plus, it will reportedly be assembled in Michigan. This is great news for American automotive workers, and it is poetic justice, because the original Bronco models were assembled in Wayne, Michigan. I'll have my Camaro paid off by 2020, and I will certainly give the resurrected, American-made Ford Bronco a very long look.
