Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were seen cruising with the family in the actor's electrified Ford Bronco over the weekend. As it turns out, the Bronco restomod was his 50th birthday present.
The Shotgun Wedding actress reportedly wanted to surprise her husband for his 50th birthday. And since Ben is a big car fan, she could not go wrong with a brand-new vehicle. And so, she went for an electrified Ford Bronco.

The power couple was seen out on Saturday, January 21, riding in Los Angeles, California, in the off-roader, along with their blended family. They enjoyed the sunny weather in the Seafoam Green vintage Bronco with the black soft top down.

This isn’t the only all-electric vehicle Ben Affleck was seen driving recently. In late December, he was spotted behind the wheel of another EV, but this time, a Rivian R1S SUV. That is the second model from the American electric car manufacturer, offered alongside a pickup truck called R1T. And, of course, Ben has often been seen behind the wheel of his Tesla Model S Plaid, which is one of his go-to cars.

But his and Jennifer's garage doesn't include just electric cars, as they also own a few luxury cars on gasoline. Among them, a Bentley Continental GTC, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, and a Mercedes-AMG S 63. Ben owns a few motorcycles, as well.

Coming back to their most recently used vehicle, the Bronco restomod is the work of Gateway Bronco, which takes vintage off-roaders and gives them a modern-day powertrain.

The company, based in Harmel, Illinois, offers electrified versions of the Ford Bronco, replacing the old engine with electric motors. The one Jennifer Lopez bought for Ben Affleck is reportedly the all-electric Luxe-GT Ford Bronco, which features an electric motor rated at 400+ horsepower (406 ps), enough to reach 60 mph (97 kph) from a standstill in approximately 4 seconds. It's also able to drive up to 300 miles or 483 kilometers before needing to be plugged in.

Besides its powertrain, the electrified Bronco includes modern features like Apple CarPlay, Gateway Bronco's exclusive electronic ride control, and heated and cooled seats. Affleck's unit also comes with a custom all-electric power folding convertible roof. According to the manufacturer, the Luxe GT's starting price is $465,000.

Ben Affleck was first spotted behind the wheel of the electrified Bronco back in late December 2022, but he's had it for a bit longer.

The owner of Gateway Bronco, Seth Burgett, shared with Motor Biscuit in December that the vehicle was, indeed, a Gateway Bronco build. And he added that “Jennifer Lopez bought the Bronco for Ben for his 50th birthday. (It) arrived the day before Ben's birthday.” Affleck celebrated his 50th birthday in August last year, and this seems to have been a great birthday present.
