YouTuber Doug DeMuro pointed out the biggest mistake with the 2021 Ford Bronco as the car company is getting ready to revitalize a treasured name for old-school sports compact SUV enthusiasts.

Full details for the first new Bronco in 25 years has been coming out in droves, and DeMuro broke down everything he likes about the upcoming vehicle and, for him, there wasn’t much to hate about it.

The new Bronco’s design, its utility capabilities, the ability to take off the roof and doors to give it a much more rugged appeal, and all of the smart accessory designs that have been laced around the frame of the SUV.

The YouTuber hasn’t even gotten into the car and is already fawning over all of the intricate details that Ford has teased for its future release.

The Bronco will give drivers a ton of options to tailor their driving experience.

“The camera system can act as a spotter for the tires, you can take off the bumper caps for narrow trails so they don’t get scraped,” he said. “Needless to say, this thing will be a gold mine of quirks and features.”

But Ford’s greatest flaw in coming out with this restyled classic is its timing in the market, according to DeMuro. He found that the demand for the Bronco is already turning up for every model, and there’s a reason for it.

“Ford is insanely late to this party,” Demure said, pointing out that competitor cars in similar classification like the Wrangler, G Wagon, or 4 Runner already has a command of the market.

“The Raptor came out a decade ago,” he said. “Its early success early on should have clued Ford that ‘hey, people are interested in off-roading vehicles like this, larger ones: You can bring back the Bronco.’”

He says that the company missed out on a lot of money coming out with the Bronco in 2021, and believes that it could have drawn on the same hype train it’s on right now in, say, 2015.

In either case, it is already shaping up to be one of the most popular releases for consumers in quite some time as wait lists for this car are already filling up.

Musicians have one of the most intensive lifestyles in the world, touring the globe to promote their work to millions of people. Thankfully, hard work brings rewards, which rappers often spend on incredible car collections.

Luxury items such as exotic cars are seen as a status symbol. They’re a fantastic way to not only ‘flex’ wealth, but also make a statement wherever they go.

Successful rappers such as Drake and Travis Scott love nothing more than showing off their success with ultra-expensive cars, but they’re far from the only ones. Below, we’ve rounded up five of the most expensive cars ever to be owned by rap artists for your enjoyment.

Travis Scott has one of the most incredible car collections of any rapper. Featuring Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Bugattis, one of the rarest (and most expensive) cars is his Maybach G650 Landaulet.

With only 99 built, the G650 Landaulet is based upon the Mercedes G Wagon. Featuring a custom extended body with convertible rear section, the G650 puts out over 600hp from its V12 engine.

3. Post Malone’s McLaren Senna XP – $1.7 million

Post Malone is known for his keen love of custom and exotic cars. With his fleet ranging from a custom 1992 Ford Explorer (which he named a song after) to Rolls-Royces, the jewel in this rapper’s collection is undoubtedly his McLaren Senna.

His Senna is no ordinary hypercar, however, with Post having one of the ultra-rare prototypes from McLaren themselves. Dubbed the Senna XP, Master of Monaco, this one-off prototype is worth significantly more than a standard McLaren Senna.

Kanye West McLaren SLR Stirling Moss

Kanye’s McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is one of only 75 in the world.

2. Kanye West’s McLaren SLR ‘Stirling Moss’ – $2 million

Kanye’s collection is an eclectic one, but the standout car has to be his McLaren SLR Stirling Moss. Based on the already legendary McLaren SLR, the ‘Stirling Moss’ edition pays tribute to the legendary racing driver of the same name.
