When the Icon Bronco was first manufactured in 1966, I’m sure few foresaw its future in the realm of “niche transportation,” yet in its current restomod state, as fashioned by ICON, that is just what it is. No longer does it simply put the “utility” in “Sports Utility Vehicle.” It’s become a fashion statement.
Boasting LED lighting, stainless steel trim and a Volcanic black powder coating, this $150,000 feat of engineering is a statement piece. Its Warner five-speed manual transmission offers an effortless gear shifting experience. Its Coyote 5.0-liter V-8 engine sourced from Ford is the same as those featured in the Ford Mustang GT. No doubts in my mind that 412 horsepower gives it the kick it needs.
