Ford Bronco Timeline & Generation History

First Generation Ford Bronco

First Generation (1966-1977)

Lee Iacocca and Donald Frey, credited with designing the iconic Ford Mustang, teamed up to design the Bronco as a direct competitor to the Jeep CJ. Classified as a compact SUV, the original Bronco helped many first-time owners experience the freedom, versatility, and off-road capabilities of an SUV. First-gen models were available in 3-door station wagon, 2-door pickup, and roadster variants.

Second Generation Ford Bronco

Second Generation (1978-1979)

Due to the fuel crisis of the 1970s, production of the second-gen Bronco was delayed until 1977 for the 1978 model year. Now exclusively a 3-door SUV, the Bronco also had grown in size to join the full-size SUV segment. Now based on the Ford F-Series line of pickups, the second-gen Bronco also saw the debut of the iconic rear window which lowered into its rear tailgate.

Third Generation Ford Bronco

Third Generation (1980-1986)

The third generation of the Ford Bronco quickly addressed the shortcomings of the prior model. Now more lightweight and equipped with more fuel-efficient powertrains including a six-cylinder engine, the third-gen Bronco was a more attractive option for potential SUV buyers. Its new independent front suspension made the Bronco more comfortable on the road without sacrificing off-road abilities. In 1984, the compact Bronco II was also launched as a smaller alternative for young couples and single drivers.

Fourth Generation Ford Bronco

Fourth Generation (1987-1991)

As the Ford F-Series truck lineup began to evolve, so did the Ford Bronco. The updated pickup served as the basis for the fourth-generation Bronco which was introduced in 1987. Notable updates to this model included electronic fuel injection and rear anti-lock brakes. Special edition variants included the Eddie Bauer edition, a Nite option package, and the Silver Anniversary Edition which helped signify 25 years of production.

Fifth Generation Ford Bronco

Fifth Generation (1992 - 1996)

The fifth-gen Ford Bronco was produced until 1996 when the model went on hiatus. Significant safety enhancements found on these versions included front crumple zones, a driver-side airbag, and three-point seatbelts. As market interests shifted towards four-door SUVs with two or more rows of seating, Ford decided to discontinue the Bronco.
