Actually 1978 was when the full-size Bronco debuted.

cieraguy's right, you know. In the DVD narrative of "American Pie 2" Jason Biggs referred to that early-1980's Ford Bronco as a "seventy-something model. If that were true, it would either have bee this one, or the full-size models for 1978 or 1979.

The very first Ford Broncosí first showed up in the late Ď60s, but they were not considered (full-size) at the time. The (full-size) term came along when Ford introduced the smaller Bronco "II" along side the standard size Bronco to prevent confusion (although it didnít help much) Ford also added the "II" at the end of the smaller Broncoís name to help distinguish the two, but again, it didnít help much.

1966 Ford Bronco (introduced in 1965) the first year for the Bronco.

1995 Full-Size Ford Bronco

This was the typical Ford Bronco of the late Ď80s and mid Ď90s. Although the Bronco "II" was discontinued at the start of the Ď90s due to the Ford Explorer, Ford still recognized this Bronco as (full-size). And so it was still referred to as the (Full-Size Ford Bronco) although it didnít need to be, there was no need to call it that.

This is a perfect example as to why car companies should not name two vehicles the same name.

Yeah. Chrysler was notorious for that. (i.e Dodge/Plymouth Neon, Colt)

Another point of view is continuing with a successful name...like the Bronco, Impala, Mustang, Corvette etc...
and this is not a '77 as it has fuel doors and therefor no exposed fuel cap.

Yes, but itís not logical to manufacture two vehicles with the same name, at the same time; like the bigger and smaller Bronco were. The names caused problems with consumers, who would get the two vehicles confused.
