Ford Bronco is one of the Ford SUV models that had been discontinued and then released again after years because of consumer demand. However, you can still find it on the roads and markets. It is a model line of sport utility vehicles and the first SUV model manufactured in 1966.
History of Ford Bronco:
Ford developed Bronco to compete against the Jeep CJ-5 and IH scout. Ford enlarged the Bronco in 1978, bringing it with a short wheelbase version of the Ford F-series truck. The full-size Bronco gave tough competition to the Chevrolet K5 blazer and Dodge Ramcharger.
As we talked about the discontinuation of the Ford Bronco in an earlier section, it is noteworthy that Ford discontinued the Bronco manufacturing in 1996 because of a decline in demand for two-door SUVs. However, Ford replaced it with a four-door Ford Expedition SUV which was a huge success. Ford Bronco reappeared in the market after 25 years. However, it was a full-size 4-door SUV, this time with a longer wheelbase. It was released against the Jeep Wrangler. The models were produced at the Ford Michigan truck plant before the initial discontinuation.
What were the Changes in the 1993 Ford Bronco?
The fifth-generation Bronco is based on the ninth-generation Ford F-150. Based on the chassis in its 1980 model, it showcased many other aerodynamic features, including a front bumper, headlight units, and a larger grille. The front fascia came up with a slightly rounded design.
The Powertrain of the Ford Bronco 1993:
The fifth generation of Bronco carried the powertrain of previous models’ 5-liter V8 engine, 5.8-liter engine, and 4.9-liter inline V6 engine. The 4.9-liter inline V6 engine was withdrawn from the fifth-generation models after 1994 and was replaced solely by V8 engines. The last model of the fifth generation, the 1996 model, contained two V8 engines that were OBD-2 compliant.
Exterior and Interior Changes:
The interior of the SUV saw significant changes in its fifth generation, starting from the 1992 model year. The dashboard and instrument panel saw a significant update, and the leather front seats were added as an option in various stream levels. One could also get an optional package with remote keyless entry and an anti-theft alarm.
People buying the 1992 model could choose from blue and maroon colors for the leather seats. Moreover, the power windows were also offered as standard for the first time with the 1992 model. Nonetheless, turn signal lights were not incorporated in desired mirrors until 1996.
The fifth generation came up with a lot of changes in the safety features. For example, a four-wheel anti-lock braking system year in 1993 models as it replaced the rear wheel antilock braking system. Ford Bronco Owners Manual for the fifth-generation models can be beneficial in elaborating all the safety features that were updated and added to the new models. There was an addition of a safety front crumple zone into the frame, and the hardtop got an update with a center-mounted brake light was updated to be the mounting point of three-point seatbelts designed for the rear passengers.
However, the safety upgrades made Bronco unable to come with a lift-off hardtop. Ford kept the owners from removing the hard top by excluding the portion that included literature about the hard top removal from the service manual. Moreover, the hardtop was secured in place with #40 security Torx bolts that were firmer. Hardtop removal could lead to a traffic citation that could tamper with the center brake light or inoperable rear seatbelts.
The Monochrome Nite edition came back on the market but didn’t come beyond the 1992 model. Monochrome paint versions appeared on the market starting from 1993 models, with the XLT sport trim level of the Bronco available in white, red, or black. A two-tone light teal green and white was introduced in another variant of the XLT trim. Six hundred of these limited editions were produced each year.
The 1993 Bronco from its fifth generation is particularly important for how various celebrities and prominent figures have used it. Around 22,281 units were produced for the 1993 model, much more than the 25,516 units produced in the previous year.
