Taking a break from pure performance, Jay Leno checks out something more suited for the dirt roads.
We're normally used to seeing Jay Leno drive more performance-oriented cars. Among the cars in his collection are many Lamborghinis, Jaguars, and even a McLaren F1. Yes, we should all be jealous. But for now "The Tonight Show" host and longtime gearhead is behind the wheel of something different. Speaking with the CEO and lead designer of ICON, a styling and engineering firm, Jay takes a look at an "evolved" 1971 Ford Bronco.
The Icon Bronco is still a 4x4 off-roader, but company founder and CEO and lead designer Jonathon Ward took a creative, yet still somewhat conservative approach when updating one of the best off-roaders of all time.
Power comes from a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 taken from the Mustang GT. Along with a lot of other "geek out" details such as a 50/50 weight balance, the Icon Bronco is quite something. Complete with a matte paint job, Jay is certainly impressed. Check out the video showing a complete walk around along with the always essential test drive.
