Debut of Bronco took place in August 1965. The car was offered in three versions: wagon, half-cab and roadster (the last one was not very popular, and in 1968 was discontinued). It was a practical vehicle with a fairly simple configuration and no frills, but at the same time Bronco was very adaptable to a range of activities. It was equipped with 107-horsepower 6-cylinder engine with three-speed manual transmission. In 1966, about 18,200 cars have been sold
The energy crisis of the mid-'70s played a fateful role in the history of Bronco. In 1977, production of the first Bronco was stopped, now all the cars of 1966-1977 model years are considered to be classics.
Concept of Bronco which was represented in Detroit, according to the plan and the company should look like the first models of Ford: high and flat roof, square shape of the body, round headlamps and a sign with the name of the car integrated into a modern radiator grille. Despite the past heritage the car has many new exciting concepts, such as LED and halogen light sources that have replaced conventional lights, 18-inch aluminum wheels with a nice six-spoke and divided into two parts roof. Asceticism of appearance of the model should serve its customize at the SUV market.
Interior is made in monotone colors. Warm gray colors with aluminum inserts in the tool bar give the car a modern look. The front passenger seat is covered with suede and leather inserts of the same color.
Such a conservative cover hides a modern transmission, two-liter turbo diesel engine with intercooler (common rail Duratorq TDCi ), six-speed manual PowerShift and four-wheel drive with the trade name Intelligent. PowerShift with double clutch can transmit up to 450 Nm, what opens a wide scope for tuning enthusiasts. The engine has a capacity of 130 hp and 330 Nm at 1800 rev. / min, what is well suited for both off-road, city drives. There are two interesting additions of the engine. The first is overboost - transient increase of boost pressure that increases torque up to 350 Nm. The second is a tank with "Nitro" (nitric oxide) and the corresponding red button, by pressing and holding it the one can add 50 hp or 20 km / h.
