The Ford Bronco recently made a comeback on to the new car market and enthusiasts and the general public welcomed it with open arms. After a 24-year hiatus, the Bronco is all-new with a few different body style variations and loads of technology, but there are plenty of older ones still in the used market. And while you can likely depend on any of them to last for years, you might be wondering how many miles will a Ford Bronco last?

With proper care, a Ford Bronco can last a long time

The Ford Bronco has come a long way since it made its departure from the market in 1996 and we have no doubts that the new model should last any owner a long time. However, if you’re looking to buy an older generation model, then you’ll have relied on a good inspection or some knowledge of them in order to squeeze every last mile out of it. A nationwide search on Cargurus reveals that there are plenty of Ford Broncos from the third, fourth, and fifth generations will well over 100,000 miles on them and we wouldn’t be surprised if there was a lot more life in them.

In fact, there are plenty of owner reviews for the 1995 Ford Bronco on, all of which add up to a 4.6 out of 5-star rating, with many of the owners stating that their Bronco has over 100,000 miles on the clock with no issues to speak of. Even if you did have to repair an older Bronco, the good news is that the repairs might not add up too much as Repair Pal estimates an average repair cost of $502 per year. Also, there aren’t many complaints logged on Car Complaints regarding the last few Bronco generations, which is a good sign.

The new Ford Bronco has a lot to offer

However, if you would rather stay away from the used market, then you can always opt to buy a new Ford Bronco and not worry about any potential repairs after you drive it home. The 2021 Ford Bronco is available as a two-door and a four-door model and offers six different trim levels to choose from. There are two different turbocharged engines to choose from: a 2.3-liter four-cylinder or a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6. And there’s plenty of room for five passengers and all their stuff.

Needless to say, the new Bronco has enough technology, ground clearance, and the capability to get you almost anywhere you want to go with ease. But what we don’t know yet is how reliable it will be. However, Hot Cars thinks that the new Bronco will withstand the test of time thanks to its tech-savvy engine options and new electronics.
