Exclamation Waiting for New Full Size Ford Bronco's !

The soul purpose of me registering, and typing this post. Im waiting for the ford company to bring back the FULL SIZE FORD BRONCO, with a V6 engine, tow package, and the body as original as the last model that came out on the market in the 90's. I love this vehicle, and so far have not had a chance to own one myself. I would be happy and proud if Ford would bring back the original ford bronco, where the back roof was able to come off, with 3 seat bench, 4 wheel drive, a V6 engine would be nice, with alot of the new options out there today. Im a family man, and having this vehicle would be the bomb. Haveing a flex-fuel vehicle, or something that would be good on gasoline, and / or something like a hybrid, where you can use electric / gasoline driving, and possibly be able to switch over to full gasoline for an option on a hybrid for the offroad enthuseist's.... Any more help on these options would be helpfull, but affordable to the everyday consumer. I have never believed in paying over 10,000 dollars for a vehicle, and probably never will. My wife always gets the new vehicles on the lot, and I always get the used vehicles... and mostly thats because she is a nurse, and needs a nice new vehicle thats dependable to get to work. With myself being laid off, 3 kids and a great dane to transport around. On top of that, I need something to work on the farm... I am also interested in my next vehicle possibly being a full size dually with 4 doors, or 2.... Im mostly interested in the bronco though, because I would be able to have a dually for the farm, and a bronco along side of it because one I can use for working the farm, and the other for transporting the family while the wife is at work....
I am mostly hopeing that the Ford company would possibly look into something like this, because the Ford bronco in my opinion was the best vehicle they ever had before the rest of the SUV's. And the ford bronco was just wrong...... Please bring back the FULL size Ford bronco. This is one 34 year old's dream.... There would just be nothing better than to see a FULL size ford bronco come off that line, Especially if it would be called the Ford Bronco TC......lol
I would like to know who else would be interested in this, and if anyone from the ford company views this, please, let me know if something like this is in the plans, I will save myself from buying another new vehicle until one comes onto the market....
Thanks.
TC

Re: Waiting for New Full Size Ford Bronco's !

The FSB never had a V6, so that can't be brought back.

Centurion Conversions built MANY 4-door Broncos with Ford's support, so you CAN have both. Check the classifieds on Fourdoorbronco forums - Powered by vBulletin .

A new Bronco has been a pipe-dream for the past 13 years; there's no market to support its production, and the diehard Bronco fanatics won't tolerate that name being used on the crappy concepts Ford has shown recently.

If you want one, it's VERY easy to build one. Get whichever parts you like & put them in it. Quint has built a '78 with the engine, trans, & dash from an '04 F150 5.4L. My black & tan '83 is pieced together from 3 decades of vehicles - click it in my signature for more info. I've built a '75 for a friend that's as comfortable & modern as most trucks on the road today. And there are plenty of others out there that have been customized, modernized, & personalized; most of them, on VERY tight budgets. Do some searching & a LOT of reading.

Re: Waiting for New Full Size Ford Bronco's !

I had an 89 Full size green & tan Eddie Baur Bronco. I LOVED that truck. It was a real fun truck to drive,it turned on a dime.

Mine had the 302 and it could have used more motor IMO to pull a trailer or whatever.

Draw backs to the Bronco were. 30 gallon tank that rots out every 4yrs,rear quarters that rotted easily, and my truck ate rotors, & pads.

The calipers were a poor design,they had pins that the caliper moved on and once the caliper wasn't lubed properly it would stick and wipe out one side of the pads faster.

If they fixed all that and got a vehicle that got 20 miles to the gallon instead of 10-13 I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

My gas tank has never rotted out (I actually sold the original tank when I swapped to the EFI version ~12 years ago), and those caliper pins are stainless. They don't need any lube, so if you were putting something on them, that's why they stuck.

But a 3-ton brick with a V8 will never get 20mpg.

The truck that I had,I bought as a salvage titled vehicle.It had been rolled over by the previous owner.That may have played a roll in some of the issues I had with it.

Yep. There are a few a right ways, but PLENTY of wrong ways, to repair anything. Click my black Bronco in my sig & look thru the Rollover album.

I prefer to think of myself as "smart enough to drive a fullsize cab-on-chassis vehicle", rather than just "lucky".
