Favorite Vehicle Of All Time. — Love the Bronco for it's body styling, rugged F-series full size safety and towing ability. The short wheel base makes it turn very tightly and it is a lot of fun to drive. I have 35 inch tires with stock gears and although it only has 210 hp the 328 ft/lbs of torque makes up for it. It luanches quickly onto the freeway and can handle alomost anything the rugged wilderness can throw at it. I also have a full family roll cage in the rear cargo area. This big truck provides protection for my little ones in the rear seating area. It is tall enough to keep your vital organs above most other vehicle impact areas, yet it is just low enough that you won't go over the top of other vehicles. Fits into the garage with a 6" lift (barely).

Cons

nothing

Love It — Its got decent power for how big it is. It is very reliable with the 5.0 and has never given me any issues. It looks unique around all of the 4 door SUVS and is more fun than they can ever be.

Cons

down side- gas mileage

This Is One Of My Fav Fords — drives great, rides good, a lot of room, u can take the top off in the summer... the 5.8L has more power than it needs so stay light on the gas or hang on to something... good solid body not easy to dent...

Pros

Your high up.  Strong and can tow very well.  Even with it's problems runs very well.  It's a Ford :)

Cons

Age has caused some problems.  Gas mileage could be better.

Great Truck! Even With The Problems This Truck Is Very Responsible. — 5.0 Litre V8 Engine MPG - 13-15 Acceleration - Easy even if a little on the slow side. Interior - 5 seater, large cab, large storage space. Exterior - Maroon, has rust patches over tires. Fun To Drive? - Extremely! Even if built in 1996, this truck can take almost everything, smooth road to tough terrain.

1996 Bronco — i love my bronco. i have never had any major problems with it. there are quite a few rattles and squeaks but you get used to them after a while. the cost of ownership is crazy espicially if your talking about gas mileage. on a good week i can pull maybe 14mpg. other than that

It was a great car for driving "off-road".

Cons

It sucked gas and was huge and hard to maneuver.

Beastly Bronco — I got it as a hand me down and it was huge for me. I'm tiny and I felt lost in it. It was wide and hard to maneuver, but it was quite the beast. Drove it in a ditch and out no problem. It was a horrible Turquoise color. I hated that...

96 Bronco — Great utility vehicle. Bronco is great off road (as long as it's not on narrow trails) and outstanding in the snow. Have had mine every where from the deserts of California to traveling the trails of Kodiak Island, AK. It is definitely a TRUCK and not like the car based SUV's made today which can be a pro or con depending on your likes.
