This 1993 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer edition has been given plenty of recent investments to make sure this is a nicely presented SUV that's loaded with all the best features. And since it remains quite affordable, this makes for the ideal V8-powered 4x4 that's both capable and classic.
The Eddie Bauer Broncos were the top dog, and this example really shows you why. The Medium Cabernet with tan accents and pinstripe gives this the sophisticated look of an Arizona summer sunset. Even the tan on the removable hardtop fits in with this desert scene. It has the gloss and depth of a quality respray that likely happened within the last year and has only been responsibly enjoyed since. There is an overall well-respected feeling all over this Bronco that you understand everywhere from the shine of the chrome bumpers to the way the doors close with confidence. And the upgraded clear headlights and tail lights look great without looking too flashy. After all, a proper Eddie Bauer Bronco is about style and function. That's why you have a proper trailer hitch and a full-size spare tire on a swing-away mount.
Inside is more of the premium Eddie Bauer experience. It feels inviting inside with new carpeting, a taut headliner, a smooth dash, and tan leather on the seats. The front buckets have fold-down armrests and a cup holder center console in-between for easy long-haul comfort. There's even a power lumbar adjustment. The rear has a wide bench seat with plenty of legroom that sits three across. And behind that is enough cargo space to carry everyone's gear. This is loaded with the best features, including power windows (including the rear one), power locks, keyless entry/alarm, tilt steering column, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and Bluetooth. And if you ever do decide to take the removable hardtop off, the open-air experience is still a comfortable one thanks to cold-blowing R134a air conditioning.
Under the hood is a blue oval legend. It's the 5.8-liter (351ci) V8. A history of stoutness and modern fuel injection makes for a terrific combo. This has also been given the right recent attention to make sure it remains a strong and smooth powerhouse. There's even a nice tune from the new cat-back exhaust. It's a proper 4x4 with a push-button two-speed transfer case and manual locking hubs, and so it's a useful machine for places like slippery boat ramps or getting to the campsite. This is an all-around nice driver with power steering, power brakes, and front discs. It's even a proper long-haul machine with cruise control and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
There's a new Bronco here, and the more we all talk about that, the more we get nostalgic for these classics with proper V8 power. This generation is now earning the same kind of appreciative nods that Jeep people give when they see a CJ. So to find a classic 4x4 that can also still be so useful and luxurious delivers an awesome total package. Call today!!
