The 2017 Ford Bronco is generating a lot of interest. The first Bronco came out in 1966 and it has an impressive history. Over time, this full-sized sports utility vehicle has become a favorite in North America. This new offering from Ford rides on the same platform as other Broncos. The nice thing about the Bronco is that it is lighter than earlier models and this low weight may well translate into improved acceleration and improved fuel efficiency.
2017 Ford Bronco – Technology Suite
The new Ford Bronco will ride on new 21-inch wheels. These wheels are larger than the wheels on earlier models. It will also be available as a 4-door vehicle. The bigger wheels will give you a different ride. Other changes to the exteriors of the Bronco include new headlights and taillights, which are more rounded than earlier on. The use of lightweight materials to build the Bronco’s body means that overall weight of the vehicle comes down.
Within the cabin, the carmaker has introduced standard features like a nice GPS navigation system. Bluetooth connectivity and automatic climate control are other features that are offered as standard features. The carmaker has chosen not to introduce any stunning or staggering features in the cabin, which however is nice and spacious and there is lots of leg and headroom at the back.
2017 Ford Bronco – Engine Specs
Ford has done everything in its power to introduce a fuel efficient Bronco. Though it is rather early to be discussing the exact fuel economy figures of the vehicle, we do think that when the company finally provides these figures that they will be very interesting. The carmaker plans to offer more than one engine option with the new Bronco. A 2.7-liter turbo 6-Cylinder engine that is capable of outputting 325 hp and 375-pound feet of torque will power the base model. A second engine option is also available in the form of a 3.5-liter V6 engine that is capable of developing 365 hp and 420-pound feet of torque.
We believe that Ford will definitely also offer a more powerful engine option. This engine may well turn out to be the 5.0-liter 8-cylinder engine that will produce high power and torque. The exact figures regarding the power output of this engine are yet to be provided by the company. Each of these engines will probably be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
2017 Ford Bronco – Price and Expected Release Date
At this time, it is a bit early to be discussing the official release date of the new 2017 Ford Bronco. The carmaker has not provided any details about this and nor has it provided details related to the price of the vehicle. However, experts are of the opinion that the 2017 Ford Bronco will not cost less than 45,000 dollars for the base model. Other models will probably cost a lot more. Since the Bronco is a very popular vehicle but the new offering from Ford is going to exceed expectations. This new model from Ford performs well, looks good and is sure to prove itself to be a very capable vehicle.
