Leo Sfikas served as a general manager with Currie Motors Auto Group in Chicago from 2003 to 2020. He previously served in management positions with Elmhurst Dodge, Schaumburg Jeep, and Arrow Chevrolet. Leo Sfikas is also knowledgeable about the Ford Bronco line of off-road vehicles.

Following a 20 year hiatus, the Ford Bronco returned to the market in 2021. Key features included removable doors, several drop-top options, and a wide array of off-road features. Drivers were pleased to learn that the Bronco would come back with power in the form of a 310 horsepower engine. Furthermore, drivers could select between two and four-door models of the 2021 Ford Bronco.

Ford’s official announcement unveiling the Bronco’s return caused industry analysts to consider a legitimate rival to the Jeep Wrangler for the first time in decades. Above all else, the 2021 Ford Bronco was hailed as a return to form: a rugged body-on-frame sports utility vehicle with shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive.

The Bronco returned with several iterations. The high-end Bronco Badlands, for example, allows drivers to maximize suspension travel by quickly disconnecting the front stabilizer bar. The Sasquatch Package, meanwhile, provides a number of turn-key off-road driving features. Ford continued to improve the Bronco in 2022, adding a manual transmission option for the Sasquatch Package.
