I'm curious to know who else is like me - the 6G Bronco will be my first NEW vehicle!

Why will the 6G Bronco be your first NEW vehicle?

I hardly ever own new things. I have a '79 Bronco, '03 Excursion, and '04 Camry in my stable. All bought used. Lawn mowers, trailers, snowblowers, basically anything I need I typically buy used for cheap or as a fixer-upper. Why now do I decide I need a new vehicle????

Cuz reasons.
  • Kids activities take up more and more time that I used to spend wrenching on the used stuff
  • Wife is an expert at finding new issues with the used stuff
  • No kid remembers how awesome your minivan was when you pick them up from school
  • Our idea of luxury is a Bluetooth adapter plugged into a 12V socket. Oh and heated seats in the Excursion I guess
More seriously, for whatever reason both my wife and I connected to the appeal and design of the new Bronco without forcing either of us to do so. I can honestly say that if the Bronco had not been released, I would still not be considering a new car today. Not even a new Jeep - and I'm heavily involved in a local Jeep Club.

Even the timing makes sense for us. By the time that our ordered Bronco would roll around next summer or fall, we would probably have started the process for looking for another used car replacement. Following this release and the reservation process gives us a common goal to rally around and save our money for. This type of reservation and release gives us plenty of time to get our finances in order. Also, both of us are rather excited to have a vehicle under warranty which is someone else's problem.

I think we also like the idea of being a part of something "new" and novel. We hold onto things basically until they die, so we definitely will have the Bronco for a long time. It'll be fun having the option of "passing on" to kids the Bronco that we bought new back when we were young and dumb. Ok I guess we're not that dumb but you get the idea.

This post confuses me. You ask if it’s your first new vehicle and then add a poll for why it is and don’t even add the option for no?

Anyways, nope.

This will be the 6th.

I've owned 4 vehicles; 2 used, 2 new.

The Bronco will be my 5th vehicle and 3rd new one.

Awesome reason. This is one reason I swear I'll never get rid of my '79 2nd gen. I know I'll regret it if I do...

I have followed the Bronco story since the 1st rumors were floated 5-6 years ago. I have stood by my statement that if Ford builds a vehicle worthy to be called a Bronco i would buy one. Its been a rocky road. I think they did...hoping so, and if so I consider it my civic duty to buy one and so doing vote w/my dollars to ensure the Bronco survives!

Now that is a good reason! I dig it.

although I didn’t follow the entire story as closely as you did, I think I was always “hoping” in my mind that there would be a new Bronco someday.

First new vehicle was a Scion TC when they first came out, wasn't so bad in a manual. After having a modded LT1 Firebird Firehawk it was a dream to not have issues every other week. The tC went 100k without so much as a light bulb change, not a single issue.

I am a fairly recent college graduate (graduated 2 years ago) and am reaching the point in my life where I could use a new car. I have always been a big fan of the Mustang and love the current generation so I honestly thought I was probably going to get one of those. A few months leading up to the launch of the Bronco, as I started to research it more, it really caught my eye.

After I saw the reveal, I was completely sold. While I love the Mustang and will certainly own one someday, the capability and utility of the Bronco is much better. The retro styling is just as good if not better than the current Mustang and the interior/tech is much better.

I've been off-roading a few times and have really enjoyed it. The complete package the bronco offers really made the decision for me.

The Bronco definitely just speaks to me. I’m not a Ford guy by any means or brand loyal either. But man Ford knocked it out of the park with the design.

Additionally, an off-roader fits my lifestyle a lot more than my Charger sedan haha. As much as I love zipping around town with my awesome sounding 5.7L Hemi, it’s time to slow down with something I can take on real adventures again.
