This 1989 Ford Bronco II XLT 4×4 has originality, style, a ton of features, fuel-injected power and overdrive transmission

It makes for a great premium and vintage machine. But the real reason you’re looking at this is that the Bronco II also has a reputation for being one of the most useful classic SUVs you can get your hands on right now.

The two-tone Sandalwood Metallic and brown are a good-looking color combo on this Bronco and it’s the kind of style that harmonizes with nature. So that gets you thinking about how far you’ll go in this 4×4. And while it’s unknown if the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, the body has the clean look of good respect. The distinct later Bronco II grille, bright chrome bumpers, and distinct 15-inch alloys all make for an attractive style. There’s also a versatility that has kept them desirable for all these years. The short wheelbase and tall 4×4 stance make for a great off-road combo. And this also has features like wide towing mirrors and a proper trailer hitch. It makes for the kind of vehicle that can define a weekend warrior. After all, you can launch the boat on a Friday and hit the sand dunes on Saturday. Plus, this classic looks good enough to drive to Sunday dinner.

The interior continues with the timelessly attractive earth tones. The factory velour upholstery factory velour remains looking good and feeling comfy from proper care. Plus, this upper-level XLT is loaded. So you get power windows, power locks, cruise control, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. The full-size spare is on an exterior swing-away mount, and that means plenty of cargo room behind the rear hatch. There are some distinct features, and they have to do with the center of the SUV. First, most Bronco IIs have front bucket seats, but the front bench here allows you the option to carry one more person or just fold down the armrest for individual comfort. Also, there’s a floor shifter for the two-speed transfer case. Some of us prefer the manual shift and locking hubs to the electronic variety when utilizing the 4×4 system often and/or looking to make hardware upgrades.

Under the hood is a fuel-injected 2.9-liter V6. It’s a torque-filled powerhouse with a long and hardy reputation at Ford. This one fires up eagerly and it is ready to hit the road. The four-speed automatic transmission is built for true SUV duty so you can let it deliver easy overdrive comfort, or select to go without during hauling. And power steering, power brakes, and front discs make any journey an easy one.
