Ford has played a major role in the SUV market. In 1966, the original Bronco raised 4x4s to multipurpose, highway worthy levels, especially after the introduction of the 289 V-8 option! Sure, Jeep had its new V-6 in the CJs, and I-H dropped a 266 V-8 into the Scout, but each of these vehicles was old news in the handling and drivability department...
I believe that Ford made modern technology accessible to off-road vehicles, upgrading powertrains to levels of performance that make SUVs popular to this day. If you'd like to share your views and get feedback on technology, repairs, troubleshooting and upgrades, I'd be pleased to participate at this forum!
