  • First Generation Ford Bronco (1966-1977)

The first generation featured a roadster, half-cab, and station wagon design, though the station wagon eventually took off as the main Bronco body. It had a rugged interior and a load of additional accessories, including a posthole digger and snowplow. 

  • Second Generation Ford Bronco (1978-1979)

The second generation Bronco utilized a larger body with a removable hardtop. The lowering rear window was added, allowing the tailgate to fold out just like a pickup truck.

  • Third Generation Ford Bronco (1980-1986)

The third generation Bronco was much smaller and lighter than the second and came with the option of a six-cylinder engine as an alternative to the V-8. This generation utilized an F-150 base and independent front suspension.

  • Fourth Generation Ford Bronco (1984-1990)

The Bronco II was introduced during the fourth generation as a smaller-proportioned SUV. Safety features were also added, including rear anti-lock brakes. The Eddie Bauer trim package was introduced, which included cloth bucket seat and wood burl trim.

  • Fifth Generation Ford Bronco (1992-1996)

The Fifth Generation Ford Bronco used a removable hardtop that was actually illegal, though many people still made use of it. It was finally discontinued in late 1996.
