A Coyote V8 with 460 hp is a start, but this Bronco restomod has so much more going for it.
Kindred Motorworks has unveiled a new version of its vintage Ford Bronco restomod: the Trail Edition. The new edition offers customers looking for a little more capability another option over and above the company's line of vintage Bronco restomods. The Trail Edition is available for pre-order and will add $10,000 to the build, but is only available on the gas-powered models.
Kindred's regular Bronco build only debuted last year, but it seems the company is wasting no time in making a name for itself in the booming Bronco restomod market.
"Customer interest in the Kindred Bronco has been excellent," said Kindred Motorworks founder and CEO Rob Howard. "We're thrilled to showcase the Trail Edition, which adds even more capability to our already outstanding and comprehensively modernized Bronco."
The Trail Edition includes a front bumper with an integrated Warn Zeon 10-S winch and a rear impact bumper with an integrated hitch and tire carrier.
It's not a ton of additions, but the features do a great job of making the old Bronco look rugged, and we all know just about anyone that can afford one of these restomods isn't taking it off the pavement.
Fortunately, the edition builds upon the long list of standard features like the 460-horsepower Ford Coyote V8, four-wheel disc brakes, and 18-inch forged aluminum wheels with BFGoodrich all-terrain tires. On the inside, the experience is much more modern, with Recaro leather seats, cupholders, a backup camera, Bluetooth, and a new sound system.
As for the colors of your new car, you can choose from 10 standard ones with matched wheels, interior, and badging. The model shown here is painted Muted Gray with a black roof and interior. If you're going for an old-school white roof look, that will bag you a tan interior, and if you want something truly bespoke, that can be customized for the right price too.
"Every Kindred Motorworks vehicle is designed to be approachable and user-friendly-combining iconic design with modern power and amenities," said Rob Howard. "The Trail Edition offers customers an easy way to level up their Bronco's capability if they plan to venture a little further off the beaten path."
Kindred's whole aim is to make upgrading one's vehicle easier and thus will offer different options much like a normal manufacturer. By standardizing things, it can keep costs down and save buyers time and money in an industry that's known for long wait times and high prices.
It's also working on other vehicle upgrades like electrifying the original VW Microbus and cramming a 700-hp V8 into a 1969 Camaro. The company is trying to expand fast and catch people's attention, and offering a varied portfolio is a great way of doing that.
