Last July, The Blue Oval announced that the sixth-generation Ford Bronco would be sold in select left-hand drive European markets for the very first time in 2023, albeit in very limited quantities, though it didn’t give too many additional details regarding this forthcoming launch at that time. The Ford Bronco will be joined by the Ford F-150 – which is slated to arrive in that region soon via an import agreement with Hedin Mobility Group. Now, FoMoCo has shared some additional details regarding the Ford Bronco launch and what customers in Europe will be able to purchase in the near future.
In terms of trim levels, European Ford Bronco customers have just two choices – Outer Banks and Badlands – as well as just one engine – the twin-turbocharged Ford 2.7L V6 EcoBoost mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission. Interestingly, no matter which trim customers opt for, the initial batch of Euro Broncos will be First Edition models, complete with unique exterior details, an interior build number badge, and a selection of accessories that includes neoprene seat covers, door storage bags, and a soft mesh top, depending on the series.
As for tops, all European Broncos will come with the molded-in color hardtop rather than a soft top. It’s unclear what sort of option packages Ford might offer, but the automaker did note that all European models will come equipped with the 12-inch infotainment screen, along with the 10-speaker B&O sound system and 360-degree camera system.
“Bronco is a symbol of Ford’s spirit of adventure, and by blending the latest drivetrain technologies with inspired, intelligent design, the new Bronco takes that passion for exploration to the next level,” said Jon Williams, general manager, Ford Blue Europe. “After a 25-year absence, America welcomed the return of Bronco with more enthusiasm and fondness than we could ever have imagined. Now we’re excited to give European enthusiasts their first taste of the Bronco spirit.”
