1996 Ford Bronco Overview

The 1996 Ford Bronco was the last of its line produced with the exception of a concept car that made an appearance at shows in 2004. The Bronco would give way to the Expedition.

The Bronco would go out in style, with an available TV and VCR available for its top trim (the Centurion) for its final model year.

The Bronco remains a favorite of off-road enthusiasts and tuners alike, even after a decade out of production. There's much to love in the '96 Bronco; its Twin Tractor Beam suspension, high ground clearance, and solid 4-wheel drive make it much better at taking on tough off-road terrain than a lot of later 4x4 vehicles.

People looking for a project find the Bronco to be a great base for experimentation; its two-and-a-half tons of solid Detroit steel mean you can jack it up or low-ride it to your heart's content and still have a rugged, durable ride.

Yes, it's basic, boxy, and a little bouncy in the interior, but that's part of the Bronco's charm to many drivers. Even after all the fancy SUVs that have succeeded it, the 1996 Bronco remains a popular American classic.
