Ford’s new 2020 Bronco looks right in a way that Land Rover’s new Defender just doesn’t. Who’d have thought that, after Ford mis-managed Land Rover (and Jaguar, Volvo, and Aston Martin…) into the ground only a decade or so ago, before bailing on all of them.
Anyway, Ford seems to have nailed it with their homage to their own classic nameplate, and fittingly today’s bloggee LoMaC has nailed his homage to Ford’s, er… homage.
Capturing the 2020 Bronco in Technic form, LoMaC’s recreation features working steering (by both the wheel and HoG), independent front and three-link rear suspension, a working engine, opening doors, hood and trunk, plus a detailed interior with adjustable seats.
We think the new Ford Bronco would make a fine official LEGO set (which maybe is on the cards with Ford and LEGO’s fruitful partnership), but until then you can build LoMaC’s brilliant Bronco for yourself, as building instructions are available!
Head to LoMaC’s Ford Bronco Bricksafe gallery to see all the images and to the Eurobricks forum for full build details and that link to building instructions.
