ICON Bronco Car of the Year in GQ!

-Best Stuff-Car Of The Year!

 

The Bronco’s Back. You Got a Problem With That?

We’re constantly saddled with remakes no one wants: the 2002 Ford Thunderbird, say, or the Footloose redux. But for years we’ve been jonesing for a revived version of the original 1966 Ford Bronco. Thanks to Icon, an LA-based boutique manufacturer of industrial-grade SUVs, it’s back and more beastly than we remember. The body panels come from slightly worn vintage Broncos, but the rest is all brand-new, including axles from a military supplier and the 420-hp V-8 engine. The cabin keeps with the utilitarian theme: You stare at gauges inspired by Bell & Ross’s pilot watches and sit on woven Chilewich vinyl because, as Icon founder Jonathan Ward says, “Leather doesn’t last for shit”. The result is a reincarnated Bronco with the original’s fuck-you ruggedness racheted so high, you’re not sure if you should drive it to the beach or the front lines.
