Default 2016 Ford Bronco

No way - it's back; and this time with a diesel option



Quote:
It’s finally happening: after waiting 20 long years Ford is bringing back the Ford Bronco for 2016 and it’s not the Early Bronco concept that was unveiled to the world in 2004 like many believed. This all-new Ford Bronco is based off the highly popular Ford Atlas and if history does indeed repeat itself, this could kick-start the 2-door 4x4 SUV market once again.

The 2016 Ford SVT Bronco is available with three different engine options from a base 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 that pumps out 420 hp to an optional 4.9-liter Powerstroke V-6 diesel engine that is based off the revised 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel. The 4.9-liter Powerstroke delivers 330 hp as well as 645 lb-ft of torque.

That powerstroke will be a BEAST in that truck.

Jesus that looks awesome. Even reminds me of the last generation Bronco.


But looking at the article, it's a god damned April Fools joke.

After the wife and I buy our second home in the next couple of years, I already told her that I will be buying a truck because Lord knows when you own a home you need a truck. What she doesn't know is that I am buying a military truck that I will also convert as a simple camper to take the family camping.

Also when it snows and I call everyone of my co-workers that I will be picking them up and taking them into the office, whether they can work from home or not.

Why a military grade truck? Because F-you that's why. That and the ability to carry a platoon of combat troops is also a plus.

I have not made up my mind yet though on which one. I am leaning more toward the M1078 and the Unimog.


M1078




Pinzgauer





Unimog



Gaz 66

Boo.

Honestly... ****ing yuck.

It's like some sort of standard cab shortbed f250 with a cap on it.

The bronco concept was way better.


Incase anyone forgot about it.




It's cool they want to bring it back but make it more like an original bronco... a jeep fighter. This thing... it's a behemoth.

That thing looks awful. Where's the rest of it?

Love the version in the OP. It's beastly.

It looks like a bronco to me. The truck in the OP looks like some sort of f250 crossover wagon thing. Nothing in the new bronco says "Bronco" to me.

Keep in mind that was a concept from 2004, the general idea of the truck and styling is more what I prefer. It needs updated for today but more along the lines of that, than what we got.

The problem is a 2dr SUV just won't have the wheelbase for crazy towing capacity. Trust, I'm there with ya as I don't want a truck, but it's not going to happen.

The last gen Bronco could tow a decent amount. My uncle used to tow his 26ft boat with his 96 Bronco.

A lot people never actually figure out what they can tow "safely". However, it really depends on the boat. The Bronco II doesn't seem to have official towing capacity listed anywhere but it seems somewhere in the 4000-5000lb range which is typical for a vehicle of it's size. 26' boats range anywhere from 4000-7000lbs depending on the boat and boat trailers are usually around 700 lbs. If the boat was on the lower side of the spectrum, that would put it likely within a normal towing capacity range for a Bronco II (and any current mid-sized SUV). I highly doubt the boat was on the higher side, but people have been known to ignore vehicle ratings.

Correction to that, a 96 Bronco (which I wouldn't call mid-size to today's standard) is around 7000lbs towing capacity:

5.0L w/3.55 rear:Max GCWR is 11,500 lbs.; trailer wt is 0-6600 lbs.

5.8L w/3.55 rear: Max GCWR is 2,000 lbs.; trailer wt is 0-7000 lbs.

I wasnt talking about mid-sized SUVs, I was talking about a 2dr SUV built on a 1/2 ton platform, which makes it a full size SUV.

For reference, my Explorer can tow 6,620lbs and it's a mid size. The BII was limited by engine. My Explorer was built on almost the same platform as the BII.

Yes, the older generation Explorer has more towing capacity than the newest generation. It was also a larger vehicle as well (as was the older Bronco). Today, they aren't making them in those sizes which I'm assuming it due to gas efficiency. Today if you want that type of towing capacity, you have to go with a more expensive diesel based SUV (for those makes which have them), one of the very large SUV's (which there are only a small handful of them today like the Armada), or a truck.

There are mid-sizes that can tow a good amount. A HEMI WK2 Grand Cherokee can tow 7500lbs.

My Explorer is smaller then the current gen and the 2 gens before that. The current Explorer can't tow for **** because it's built on the Taurus platform.

Yes, which goes back to the "more expensive" part I mentioned earlier (as those can be close to $50k). However, you'd be better off with a diesel Jeep as the gas mileage will be much better. A friend of mine averaged around 19 mpg towing with his diesel Jeep. I would still question the stability given the wheelbase, but he was only towing a Spec Miata (which he is now towing an Exocet in a small enclosed trailer) so not a ton of weight.

Looking around $50k, you are better off just going for a Tundra or F-150 and calling it a day.

50K gets you a very nice jeep and an OK F150. Most people dont want to DD a pickup.

Those people aren't serious about towing either... That's the thing today, if you are serious about towing, a truck is the best option. I'm not serious about towing, which is why I'm towing with a FJ Cruiser.

I don't think you could afford a defender. I don't think most people who would buy a bronco would be able to afford a defender either.

New bronco might cost more than a used "okay" defender, but a 5 year old bronco would definitely cost less than a 15 year old defender.
