Still looking good autogeek. I would not change much. I miss my Bronco II Eddie Bauer. I had slightly oversized tires....31" if I recall. Had a very similar stance and could go anywhere a Jeep could go.It's been more than 30 years yet this truck of ours still works, but I feel like it is time to change the wheels. What do you guys think?
Cool part is the "Sasquatch Package" with 35" tires can be had on the Base version.Bronco “Badlands” is top of the line with 35” wheels! Price will be around $55K! Bronco “Badlands” Sports is guessed at $40K!
I think that the Bronco doesn’t need a V8. A big V6 can give enough power for a future Bronco Raptor. More than 450 HP, for sure.Many would love to see a V8 in the Bronco, no doubt. But honestly, do you want more weight top side on an already top heavy vehicle? That said, Ford will sell every single Bronco they make, without the cost of modifying it to allow for a V8. So why bother.
I read that Ford is developing a Hybrid powerplant for the next Ranger, chances are, it willl also end up in the Bronco.The greenie-weenie, climate alarmists are all up in arms that Ford rolled out a Bronco without electrification. So I guess we have to listen to them whine a bit longer, until Ford mentions they are already planned. As if a Bronco will be any worst than an Edge....or F150 for that matter, which uses the same V6 engine.
True. The 400hp 3.0L V6 EcoBoost of the Explorer ST could probably fit (similar to a 2.7?) if they needed a hotter model.I think that the Bronco doesn’t need a V8. A big V6 can give enough power for a future Bronco Raptor. More than 450 HP, for sure.
A bit off-topic...Bronco will be getting more power and electrification as well. I can't sepeak to what and how. I am betting it will be impressive.
In the link below, Jalopnik really looks into the details of Bronco, while also comparing to Jeep.
To get an understanding of how the 2021 Ford Bronco will stack up against the undefeated Jeep Wrangler off-road, I had to get nerdy. I interviewed the Bronco’s Chief Program Engineer and Vehicle Engineering manager, reached out to other engineering experts in the auto industry, visited a Jeep...jalopnik.com
