Ford Motor Co. is putting a V-8 engine in a production Bronco, but it's going to cost more than any vehicle except the GT supercar.
The automaker late Monday unveiled the Bronco DR, a desert racer based off the four-door Bronco and meant for extreme off-roading, at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Ford intends to run a prototype of the vehicle at the 2022 SCORE Baja 1000 late next year, but it said it will also build a small number for sale for the 2023 model year.
Only 50 units will be built initially by Canada's Multimatic, and the trucks will be available for sale in late 2022. Ford says the price for the Bronco DR is projected to start "in the mid-$200,000 range," although exact figures were unavailable.
