ICON 4×4 introduces the latest rendition from its iconic New School Edition Bronco line. Reimagined for the modern age, this ICON Bronco is reconfigured to the highest degree for on-road performance and off-road formidability, according to the company.

Completed with a high-quality 3M satin military green wrap and a stealthy two-stage gloss green finish underneath, the classic sport utility vehicle is accented with blacked-out trim running from the grille to the rear bumper and covering all exterior embellishments in between. Platformed on a 1975 Ford Bronco, the new ICON Bronco’s starkly modern aesthetic is synergized with the high-performance modifications which landmarked the ICON 4×4 brand and founder Jonathan Ward.

“The New School style has become a hallmark of ICON because it’s designed for the person that absolutely, positively wants the most unique vehicle in town. If you’re living the coastal life that many restored Broncos are destined for, you’ll more than likely come across someone else driving one that looks just like yours. With ICON, there won’t be another one in your state that looks anything like the one that you designed for yourself,” said Ward.

The latest ICON New School BR started life as a 1975 Ford Bronco. For starters, a custom chassis with coil-over suspension all-around, a powerful 5.0L V8 engine mated to a 5-speed Aisin & Warner AX15 manual transmission with an Atlas II twin stick, two-speed, shift-on-the-fly transfer Case for maximum control and versatility when on the open roads or climbing hills in the backcountry. 

The Mustang GT 5.0 V8 engine outputs a formidable 440 horsepower and 440 torque, while the proprietary chassis keeps it all under control, and the Brembo brakes match the go. The manually activated front and rear ARB locking differentials built within the Currie Industries ICON-specific Dana 44 high-pinion front axle assembly and Dana 60 high-pinion rear axle assembly.. The rubber meets the road with Standard Fair BF Goodrich All-Terrain K02 Tires and ICON New School Forged 18′ Aluminum rims with floating center caps and ICON lizard etchings.

The New School style of the ICON Bronco flows throughout the interior with the headliner covered in all-black Alcantara. Front and back seating is upholstered in matching black sueded leather with zero sheen to ensure a supple cabin experience with an added laying of durability for the more adventurous excursions. The front seats are integrated with carbon fiber seat heaters while the rear bench seating is foldable and fully removable for cargo versatility. Floor is lined with removable rubber-backed wool square weave carpeting lined in Dynamat for soundproofing. 

For security and convenience, all doors are integrated with power double tap windows and power door locks with factory style smoked glass for all side and rear windows contributing to the stern aura of the vehicle from inside and out. The climate control utilizes Vintage Air’s latest Gen 5 air conditioning system with anodized aluminum in-dash vents for superior comfort and minimal noticeability. 

The New School Bronco includes machined ICON Everlast badges on all seating, Redoxx ICON branded recovering gear bag, and a rifle action Boker pen with ICON Lizard etchings affixed to the center console. 

Commissions from ICON’s New School Bronco line start at $275,000 with numerous customizable options available to potential clients.
