1993 Ford Bronco 2017-06-27T10:59:47+00:00

Project Description

OVERVIEW

The 1993 Bronco might be most famous as OJ Simpson’s vehicle of choice when he attempted to run from the LAPD. While it does make a great getaway vehicle due to its powerful V8 engine, high ground clearance, and 4-wheel drive, it’s much better put to use as a fun, commanding weekend cruiser. While “luxurious” is a relative term when talking about the Bronco, the interior is spacious and airy, the leather seats are supple, and the ride is buttery smooth, especially compared to the original Bronco.

Power comes from the venerable Ford 302 CID V8 producing approximately 185 horsepower. While that may not sound like much in order to propel the almost 4,600 pound Bronco around, with 270 lb-ft of torque on hand, it never feels like a slouch. Of course, with that much torque under foot, in addition to 4WD, the Bronco is great for towing or getting through just about any kind of terrain. With the big, knobby tires, the Bronco makes you feel like you can tackle just abut anything!

A LOOK IN THE REAR VIEW

While most people associate the Bronco nameplate with OJ Simpson and his desperate run from the police, the first generation Ford Bronco, built from 1966 until 1977 is definitely the most iconic. Put into production during Ford’s hey-day alongside the Mustang, the Bronco was to off-roaders what the Mustang was to those looking for a sports car. In fact, the Bronco and Mustang were both designed by Donald Frey and developed by Lee Iacocca. Both vehicles represented new frontiers at Ford.

While later models eschewed the round headlights and curvier body panels for hard, crisp lines, the fifth generation, built from 1992 to 1996 did the best job of tying those hard lines together into a cohesive shape. Similarly, Ford used bold colors and two-tone paint jobs for various special editions to make keep the Bronco looking fresh.

WORD ON THE STREET

“The 1993 ford bronco is great for pulling and goes through almost anything. It’s alot of fun with friends and will turn heads. The ride is very smooth on and off road. The bronco has a very sturdy or strong body and frame.”

Michael, CarGurus.com

“The Ford Bronco remains to this day one of the sturdiest full-size SUVs around. Well-maintained examples would be a good choice for off-roading duties, although its now-ancient underpinnings make it a lousy choice on-road. The numerous paint options (including two-tone and monochrome Sport options) mean that finding a relatively unique Bronco should be fairly easy.”

Unknown, Edmunds.com

“The XL Bronco was offered with a standard 5.0-liter EFI V8, making a not-astounding-by-today’s-measure 205 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque when fitted with a manual transmission. I will take this opportunity to mourn the mid-90s, when one could stroll into a Ford store and sign the note on a row-your-own, full-sized SUV. Opting for the four-speed automatic more than doubled the Bronco’s towing capacity at the expense of ten horsepower, while the optional 5.8-liter served mostly as a vessel for burning extra fuel. The 300 cid inline-six was dead and buried for the Bronco by ’95, so I’ll take mine with the base drivetrain, and so should you.

Choosing manual locking hubs on the base XL leaves little to chance, and so far as I can discern, were a no-charge option over the heave-it-into-4×4 hockey stick poking out of the transmission tunnel between the front seats. Standard skid plates over the transfer case and gas tank mean drivers can bash their way over rocks with little concern.”
