Big Bronco: Slow-Motion Mudding (Video)
In Honor of Ford’s Impending Return of its Iconic Bronco, We Bask in the Beauty of a Big, Badass Bronco Mudding in Slo-Mo
This week’s “Muddy Mondays” video features a full-size Ford Bronco from the fifth and final generation of the big, body-on-frame SUV. With the recent confirmation by Ford that the Ford Bronco will return in 2020, we thought that it would be fitting to feature a Bronco flexing its off-roading muscles.
What we do know is that this badass Bronco was a body-on-frame vehicle whereas the new 2020 Ford Bronco will almost surely be a unibody vehicle. It is likely sharing a platform with the upcoming 2019 Ford Ranger. The 2020 Bronco will be a mid-size vehicle, so it will be smaller than the Bronco shown in the video featured here. But with the new Bronco promised to be a proper off-road-ready 4×4, it shouldn’t be long after it arrives before we see similar action videos with the newest SUV.
Additionally, we can tell from the headlight design that this is a 1992-1996 Bronco, but there are no other details in this video. So, your guess is as good as ours when it comes to what is under the hood. This Bronco doesn’t appear to be heavily modified and it sounds like a V8 before the slow-motion action kills the sound. Thus, it is likely a 302 or 351 V8, but we don’t know for sure.
In the meantime, we can enjoy this video of an old-school Bronco charging through a deep, watery mud hole in super-slow-motion. The slow-mo gives us a great chance to watch the mud and water flip up around the truck as it digs its way to the other side of the pit. Even with the combination of the deep hole at the beginning and the slick climb out at the end, this big Bronco makes short work of the mud pit.
