My wife's nephew bought one. I believe it is the Sasquatch package. I have ridden in it once, and that was enough. Nice vehicle if that's what you're looking for, but was too road noisy for me. I drive nothing but Fords, but will pass on buying a Bronco.

IDK, MSRP in '73 was $3760. Avg retail now according to JDPower is 72,400. Seems like it might work out if you buy and hold...

I have driven them and really like them. There is lots of road noise especially from tires.

At freeway speeds they're noisy. Not a whole lot of sound-deadening in the body, and of course it's about as aerodynamic as a brick.

The older Broncos were built on a 1/2 ton truck chassis

What chassis is the new Bronco built on???

It's own body on frame.

Substantially similar to the new generation Rangers. Which, by the book specs, are rated at over 1/2-ton capacity.

Aren't you a little bit past that? If not then color me impressed.
Real Bronco owners know you flip the seat and remove the top so she can see the stars. That is an area the old XLT shined against these new ones. The seat folded and flipped for a flat bed, just avoid the latch on the seat and latch catch in the floor. The new bed is obviously smaller, seat back doesn't flip forward for a flat bed, removing the seat completely still doesn't reveal a flat bed.

I concur, POS.

What new equivalent vehicle would you suggest? A Toyota...
