The Ford Bronco was unveiled at the 2004 North American
International Auto Show. This concept version of Ford's
pioneering 1960s sport utility vehicle retains the original
Bronco's authentic, no-nonsense design.
When the Bronco concept was introduced it was a bit of
a revelation. Here was an SUV which didn't try and please
everyone, instead it catered to a hardcore minority who
wanted something which they could use for some serious
For a more open-air ride, the Bronco concept's roof is
made up of two separate sections, the rear portion of
which can be removed. Roll bar accents can then be attached
for a look that recalls a Baja racer or the customized
"Baja Broncos" Ford offered in the 1970s.
The silvery-gray paintwork of the Ford Bronco concept
was purposly chosen to compliment the anodized brushed
aluminium accents and give the appearance of a body which
had been milled out of a single, solid piece of metal.
The Ford Bronco concept is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged
and intercooled diesel engine mated to a six-speed powershift
transmission and "intelligent" four-wheel-drive
Adding to the Bronco concept's power is a nitrous oxide
"boost," similar to the power enhancement found
on traditional hot rods. At the press of a button, a blast
of nitrous oxide is injected into the engine. During combustion,
the gas is broken down into nitrogen and oxygen, allowing
more fuel to burn.
On the inside, the Ford Bronco concept features a pair
of simple round gauges for the speedometer and the odometer/compass.
The lockable glovebox has a solid grab handle for the
passenger. The corrugated interior floor panels are durable
and easy to clean.
