MagnaFlow Brand Ambassador, mechanic and TV personality Aaron Kaufman was recently in town to work on a few upcoming projects. We took the opportunity to introduce Kaufman to the all-new Ford Bronco that we had in our Tech Center for scanning and testing. His first thought? Those flared fenders “are meant to have a much bigger tire” under them.
Few Frills—All Thrills
Kaufman found many similarities between the new Ford Bronco and the venerable Jeep Wrangler, but he appreciated that the vehicle had been designed “Ford style.” He liked how “basic and utilitarian” the vehicle is, especially the rear storage area and “spartan interior.” Those features are important to him, as it provides the Bronco with the flexibility to go off road or transport his dogs while keeping the interior of the SUV easy to clean.
Speaking of going off-road, Kaufman also liked how the Bronco’s doors were designed to be removed easily while keeping door wiring protected when not in use. That being said, he wasn’t sure about the rig’s side mirrors, which he thinks protrude awkwardly from the cowl. Ford did this to facilitate easy door removal. One aspect of the vehicle which he loves is the front end, where the grill, beefy bumpers, skid plate and headlights make for an easily recognizable, classic mug. He could also tell that plenty of room had been left on the Bronco’s underside to allow owners to upgrade their rigs as they see fit.
Kaufman found the vehicle’s interior to be quite comfortable, and he was intrigued by the potential of the G.O.A.T (Goes Over Any Terrain) driver assist system included with every Bronco. He also liked what he saw under the hood, including the fact that Ford resisted the habit modern automakers have of hiding the engine with a plastic cover. Kaufman positively noted the modularity of the engine bay and the space available for future aftermarket upgrades.
All in all, he seemed impressed by Ford’s successful revival of an off-road classic, but an area he found lacking was the vehicle’s exhaust. He’s looking forward to hearing the exhaust that our team is developing for the Bronco, which will make the truck sound as cool as it looks!
