The Bronco has finally been released into the wild."The Broncos are out of the gates, out of the corral," Erik Williams, Ford plant manager at Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, told a handful of reporters on Monday during a tour.Take a step back in time: This bestselling SUV was last built in 1996, the year that the Fox News Channel debuted, "Independence Day" dominated the box office and "Macarena" topped the music charts."There’s a lot that has to go right every minute in order to assemble a vehicle," Williams said, having worked for the automaker for 24 years. "I’m still amazed at the process."
