2017 Ford Bronco SVT, price, interior, specs – The original Bronco was one of the most appreciated full size SUVs because it was good on-road, great off-road and it was quite a good looking car. However, Ford stopped making them more than 20 years ago mostly because the car was replaced with another model which even though it was still similar in size, but it didn’t manage to catch the spirit of the original. Good news though because there is likely going to be the new Ford Bronco 2017 which is going to be made in cooperation with SVT. This new SUV is going to be based, for the first time in a few years, on a Ford F-150 chassis and it is going to feature similar engines as well as the same towing rating as the truck counterpart.
2017 Ford Bronco redesign
Inside and out, the 2017 Ford Bronco is going to have a familiar yet unique look. The exterior will be similar to that of the Raptor rather than the normal F-150 but at the back, the car will get a unique design with LED tail lights and a dual exhaust right under the trail-ready bumper. On the interior, while it will use the same dashboard and instrument panel as the Raptor, the seats are going to be more comfortable with standard heating and electric operation.

Ford Bronco 2017 specs
Unlike most other SUVs in its class, the new Ford Bronco 2017 is going to use a full aluminum body, similar to what the F-150 has. However, the chassis underneath is going to be lighter thanks to the use of high strength steel which is a first for Ford. On top of that chassis, there are likely going to be three different engines available at launch. The base full size SUV will use a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 that will be able to make around 450 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Further up the range, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost similar to what the new Raptor has will be available, but likely in a de-tuned version with around 420 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The top of the range will use a 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel which will be the perfect companion for people looking to use their car in off-road.
2017 Ford Bronco release date and price
Thanks to the fact that it will be a truck based SUV, the new Ford Bronco 2017 is most likely going to offer great off-road performance and with the help of SVT, great on-road speed as well. There isn’t an official release date just now but it seems that a production model might be ready until the end of 2016. The 2017 Ford Bronco price should be no higher than $30,000 for base model, which is quite cheap for a full size SUV as capable as a Bronco.
