Show Summary

Jonathan Ward of Icon Motors returns and brings his long-awaited re-engineered Ford Bronco.

Featuring a fresh Coyote V8, the new Icon Bronco packs a punch, especially considering its weight. Design-wise, every inch of this Bronco has been thought about. From CNC milled door lock pulls to the customized interior to the radiator hoses, Ward leaves no stone unturned. Icon’s one-off re-engineering somehow finds the perfect balance between rugged and refined.

Tune in and hear Adam drool over Jonathan’s attention to detail and good taste. Has Ward possibly created a car that Adam can’t complain about? Maybe not, but he probably comes as close to that as anyone ever will.
