Test Drive of the 2021 Ford Bronco Outer Banks Edition
Thursday on Sunrise LBK with Dave King and Tom Collins, The Car Pro Jerry Reynolds joined Dave and Tom to talk about his test drive of the week, chip shortages, as well as other auto industry news.
This week, The Car Pro was test driving the 2021 Ford Bronco Outer Banks edition, a car that Jerry has been hoping to be able to test for at least a year. There are several versions of this car, as well as 7 different trim packages, 2 different engines, and 2 different transmissions, with the only constant being that they are all 4 wheel drive. Jerry started the review by saying that Ford is "looking down the barrel" of the Jeep Wrangler, which is selling very well, and so they are taking a similar approach with this car by allowing you to take the doors and top off of the car, although it is not particularly easy to do so. The car is a good size, has a really nice interior, a red exterior, has a nice backseat, good cargo area, and has a nice drive and ride although it is slightly loud inside.
Jerry was test driving the Outer Banks edition of the car, which he says is good as a daily driver, as it is less 4-wheel-drive oriented, the tires aren't as big as the other versions, it has nice leather seats, a good navigation system, and costs about $53,000. However, Ford is already sold out for what they can build of this car for the next 2 years. Jerry explained that he just saw one sell at the Dallas Auto Auction for $100,000 when it only had a window sticker price of about $63,000. He's even seen it advertised for as much as $175,000, although that doesn't mean it will sell for that price.
The Car Pro also talked about some stories on his website carprousa.com. One story talks about the Best Back to School Cars for High School and College Kids. Another talks about the 2022 Lexus RX 350 and 450h. Yet another talks about the Best Selling SUVs from last month. And finally, a story about a special that Mazda is running where teachers can get an oil change for free.
