Good news for buyers not happy with the 2021 Ford Bronco’s power ratings! The body-on-frame SUV is genuinely more potent than what Ford firstly assessed. Noticed by the Bronco6G forum, we now have a new spec sheet from Ford, which shows the Bronco delivers 20–30 more horsepower and 5–15 pound-feet extra torque than before, according to the selected engine.
Ford first evaluated the turbocharged 2.3-litre inline-four to create 270 hp and 310 pound-feet. However, the new spec sheet rates the four-banger at 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.
The twin-turbo 2.7-litre V-6, which was appraised to offer 310 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque, will reportedly generate 330 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.
The four-cylinder engine can pair with either a seven-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission. The more powerful V6 can mate to only automatic.
It is worth noting that these power figures are valid for premium fuel. Those running the 2021 Bronco on 87 regular octane fuel will feel less privileged. On this fuel, the 2.3L mill yields 275 hp and 315 pound-feet, while the 2.7L engine pumps out 315 hp and 410 pound-feet.
