Bronco, A Classic Suv That Can Handle Anything You Throw At It. — The Bronco for me is a wonderful vehicle. When you need to get away from the fast times in the city the Bronco will take you there. There is a very strong cult following of the Bronco and you can see numerous amounts of them at every offroad rally and meet. One of the top SUV's in the American market in its hey day the Bronco still survives and is loved by many!

Veey Reliable Vehical — Durable workhorse truck. I have the inline V6. After buying it as a toy to drive around and listen to music, i realized what a great buy it was. The gas milage is great after air filter,exaust and TBS (custom add-ons). I recommend this truck to anyone.

Blazers Suck. — Not the fastest thing on the face of the planet, but in something that tall with a shorter wheel base than a honda civic, who needs accelleration and top speed? Ford did a good thing in the 80s, doing better in almost every way than the competition. The standard features, reliability, and modern design of this Bronco towered over Chevy, and had put Dodge's full size SUV out of comission.

Pros

Strong/ sturdy, turning radius, fun

Cons

fuel economy, acceleration

45

1989 Ford Bronco — It is a 302 ci/ 5 liter with a little under average acceleration but the turning is amazing because of its truck turning and car wheel base. I would suggest a 351 ci engine for it but a 302 still does fine for anything from daily driving, off-roading and even towing. The body is built strong and the only rust problem I have had on it was the typical bottom of the tailgate which i did not have to replace even after 20 years but did anyway because I repainted it. The fuel economy is pretty awful: 10 to 15 miles to the gallon. But on the bright side there are so many different things you can do with it, like putting a lift kit on it and going off-roading with it, or towing things.

Cons

nothing

Fun!!! — I LOVE IT!! It can go anywhere,conquer anything,haul anything. The more you throw at it the more it can dish it back out. It's fun to drive in any season!! Load up and conquer the road. The only thing it won't pass up is a gas station. ;)

No Worries Off Or On Road, Its The Best Ford. — I have found my 1989 Ford Bronco with the 5.0 liter in it the best off roader. I never worry about getting stuck, the gas mileage isnt all that bad. It has much room inside, and is very nice both inside and out. A very solid and sturdy truck, on of the finest, I have driven a variety of old Trucks and I have found the Bronco to be the best.

Pros

4x4, over 200hp

Cons

it's not in great condition

25

1989 Full Size Bronco — It needs some tlc, but it's a tank... the passenger window doesn't work, the rear door and windows don't work... but it's lifted and the 4x4 works after 21 years. On top of it, the engine has to be pretty out of spec with no signs of quitting... I love it
