RAY MASSEY: Car dealer to stars Clive Sutton bucks trend with Ford Bronco


RAY MASSEY: Bucking the trend has proved profitable for specialist car dealer to the stars Clive Sutton, and he’s at it again with his Ford Bronco


Bucking the trend has proved a profitable pastime for specialist car dealer to the stars Clive Sutton. 

And he’s at it again with this new Ford Bronco — securing the first batch to arrive from the U.S. where the model is sold out until 2023. Ford has yet to decide if it’ll export the 4×4 SUV officially to the UK and Europe. 

Priced from £45,000 to £85,000 depending on specification and with import paperwork sorted, they come with comprehensive two-year/30,000-mile cover.

Fitted with a 2.3-litre or 2.7- litre engine developing 270bhp to 310bhp and paired with a seven-speed manual or ten-speed automatic transmission, Sutton says the four-door, left-hand-drive Bronco ‘has the grunt to tackle any on or off-road challenge’. 

Based in St John’s Wood, London, Sutton made his name in the 1990s by supplying PM Tony Blair’s family with Chrysler Grand Voyagers.
