If you loved the Ford Bronco, get your garage ready. Gateway Broncos and Ford have reached a licensing agreement to build a limited number of 1966-77 Broncos. Gateway will be building these trucks with Ford backing, and a five-year bumper-to-bumper warranty. Seth Burgett started Gateway in 2016, as a Bronco restoration company. The Icon Bronco is one build that came from Gateway. These trucks are going to be crafted, rather than restored, with new metal construction. Gateway will have the capacity to build clients an entirely new body and frame. Clients will not need a donor or scrap car to get this project going. However, the option of restoring an existing vehicle or putting a new body on a vintage frame is open.
Gateway will offer three models of the Bronco called the Fuelie, Coyote Edition and Modern Day Warrior. The Bronco price tag will range from $120,000-$180,000. Gateway will be adding technology upgrades to compliment the original appearance of the Bronco. The Coyote Edition and Modern Day Warrior get a Ford 5.0-liter V8. The Fuelie will get a 347 Stroker. Willwood four-wheel disc brakes will make stopping easier on the now faster Bronco. The new model will also include engineered noise and vibration reduction.
The new Bronco is creating a beastly buzz of interest. The Gateway Bronco price is steep, but the company expects to build four vehicles per month in 2019.
