Ford Bronco Created by Vaccar Headed to SEMA
Dubbed ‘Boosted Bronco,’ the blue and yellow SUV created by renowned builder Aaron Vaccar will rock a twin-turbocharged motor.
It’s hard to navigate the automotive scene on the web or social media without running into at least one Bronco headline every day. While some may think it’s odd that a vehicle that left us a couple of decades ago is still in the limelight, we at Ford Truck Enthusiasts are less than surprised. Furthermore, if you’ve clung onto one of these yourself you should be more than stoked! (Can we say, cash cow?)
Renowned builder Aaron Vaccar from The Vaccar Co. created such headlines this week when he gave us a glimpse of the upcoming Bronco he was chosen to develop for SEMA 2017. The WD-40 Company, as the name entails, is the company that produces the popular multi-purpose lubricant, as well as the patrons behind this badass Bronco. Commissioned for the largest automotive show in the world, but also to be auctioned off for SEMA Cares, this is in more ways than one an awesome project!
Vaccar is no stranger to corporate-commissioned Ford builds, as the Ford Edge below shows. Despite the computer-generated render showing a good chunk of the Bronco’s exterior design, SEMA-builds are very intricate, and we’re sure there are a lot more details hiding in the cabin, underneath the body, and in the engine bay. Speaking of the engine, Vaccar claims there will be a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine under the hood, which is why the “Boosted Bronco” project name. In our opinion, not the most original name but better than “Lubricated Bronco” for sure.
“The WD-40/SEMA Cares Boosted Bronco allows us to pay tribute to traditional hot-rodding standards of execution and finish with a first-of-its-kind vehicle,” said Aaron Vaccar. “The EcoBoost drivetrain will give the cult classic a modern spin and turbocharged power and efficiency for the future. There could not be a more iconic brand than WD-40 brand to partner with on a vehicle sure to generate excitement from Bronco, off-road and automotive enthusiasts nationwide.”
Cheesy name aside, proceeds from the SEMA Cares auction will benefit Childhelp, an organization that provides services to abused and neglected children, and the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which offers scholarships to students entering the automotive aftermarket.
The 2017 SEMA show will take place October 31 – November 3, 2017, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. You can follow Vaccar’s build via #BoostedBronco on social media.
