“We created the Bronco family to elevate every aspect of off-road adventure and equipped them with class-leading chassis hardware and exclusive technologies to raise the bar in the rugged 4x4 segment and take people further into the wild,” said Ford CEO Jim Farley. “They’re built with the toughness of an F-Series truck and performance spirit of Mustang -- and come wrapped in one of the most stunning and functional off-road designs that’s true to the original Bronco design DNA.”
