1989 Bronco History

The Ford Bronco first roared into the world in 1965, specially designed for off-road exploits and overland adventures. Ford captured the American spirit of exploration and combined it with classic muscular design to create the timeless Bronco truck, an icon stunning in both appearance and performance.

The Bronco is no stranger to history. The infamous O.J. Simpson police chase in 1994 took its notoriety to an unparalleled level. Driven by his friend Al Cowlings in the 5th generation Bronco, they fled across the Los Angeles freeway on live television while the nation watched in fascination. The Bronco was forever stamped in the annals of popular culture.

Over the years, the Bronco saw five rich generations, each with its unique flavor while remaining true to the spirit of the original. The 1st generation (1966-1977) exhibited a compact design, compact but spirited - the perfect balance of brute strength and elegance. In the 2nd generation (1978-1979), the Bronco grew bigger, reflecting the American penchant for size and power.

The 3rd generation (1980-1986) saw a significant redesign with increased efficiency and better fuel economy. In contrast, the 4th generation (1987-1991), where our beautiful '89 Bronco belongs, continued the legacy with enhancements in comfort and performance. It was a perfect blend of the past's wild spirit and the future's tasteful sophistication.

The 5th generation (1992-1996), the last before the hiatus, took comfort and luxury to new heights, with a plush interior, increased legroom, and an upgraded suspension. It wasn't until 2020 that Bronco enthusiasts saw the much-anticipated return of the Bronco, with the 6th generation reflecting an infusion of present-day technology while staying true to the original Bronco's soul.
