Ford traces Bronco history back to the original military "GP"


As part of the unveiling of the new and sixth-generation Ford Broncos, the automaker has prepared an infographic that shares the history of the vehicles, dating to the original Ford-built World War II General Purpose military vehicle, or “GP.”

Ford launched its civilian version in 1966 but ended production after five generations of Broncos in 1996. In 2004, it hinted at the Bronco’s return with a concept car, and then, on July 13, it unveiled the new Bronco family of 2- and 4-door models.

  1. Great infographic. Our family has owned a few Ford vehicles. My dad used to own a 1973 Bronco. Called it his “sweet ride” and loved to take pictures with it. Told my brother that the Bronco is coming back. We reminisced the times we spent with dad and his beloved Bronco. I got the F150 while my brother is a proud Bronco owner such as my dad. He has a 1990 Bronco. Went to his home before the lockdown and helped him install a few truck parts he swapped and the tires he bought from 4wheelonline.

  2. The New Bronco is really cool. You will have to own a bank to buy one! I still like the 1966 model,now that’s cool Rick.
