Ever since the Ford Bronco was unveiled for the American market, Europe has been lusting after the retro-modern Jeep Wrangler rival. Until, finally, in early 2023 Ford confirmed that it would bring the Bronco to some European markets – albeit, sadly only a few left-hand drive countries, with France and Germany likely to be the biggest markets.
But, the good news for those in the UK lusting after a Bronco is that you can get a new one (unofficially imported) here if you ask the right dealer: London’s Clive Sutton, which is also big into the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Corvette.
Unveiled in 2020, reviving a grand old name, the Bronco is a separate-chassis 4x4 that comes in two-door or four-door forms. There’s also the Bronco Sport, a very different, smaller, more road-focused unibody SUV, although this model won’t be coming to Europe, which will only get the four-door version complete in Outer Banks or ultimate, hardcore off-roading Badlands spec with a 2.7-litre V6 petrol engine.
Still, if you’re importing from America rather than Europe you can – of course – take your pick from the entire, full-fat, Bronco range. Even so, it is worth noting that there are persistent rumours of Ford making a right-hand drive Bronco for Australia (and other potentially relevant right-hand drive markets). For now, it’s a left-hooker or nothing.
