Ford dropped  the ball on this. Putting such a small power plant in a American classic redo is ridiculous. This thing is screaming for a 5.0! Not a Jeep killer and never will be.

Have you ever rode in their competitor (Wrangler)? Trust me, the 2.7 is far more potent. I own a Ď15 with the 3.6 and that thing is a gutless wonder.

I never mentioned a thing about the Jeep being a hot rod. I simply think they could of offered another power plant for it. The early bronco offered a 289 (V8) so if they are going to bring it back why not do it some justice and offer it with a V8 ?!

Emissions standards. Fuel economy.

The 2.7 makes more power than any engine a bronco ever came with, it just doesnít sound right. Really thatís all it comes down to.  Iím not a big promoter of the 2.7 ecoboost, but for those of you who havenít driven something with that engine in it, itíll surprise you. It wonít sound right, but the power it makes will surprise you guys.

I love it. I told the wife it's time to sell the 4 door Wrangler and get a four door Bronco. Those eco boost motors are pretty impressive.

Wow that is a cool rig! I haven't been following it, but here is a Doug DeMuro video going over what is known, but a 3 cylinder on the sport base YUCK. Other than that this is car will sell!
I am not a Ford fan, but this one has me interested...

The 3.5 L ecoboost would be perfect for the lil bronco.  Never mind the twin turbo.    Drove the single turbo 3.5L in new f-150 and it hit 90 mph in 4th quite rapidly.  It had 6 gears left !!!!

I have 2 buddies that have F-150's.  One has the 5.0 and the other has the 3.5L with the twin turbo.  The 3.5L hands down gets up and goes like no truck I have ever been in.  The 5.0 is way behind the times.

The sport will be in next spring. The other 2 mid 2021.

 Iíll bet they come out with a Limited Edition V8 version at some point.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I read the production models wonít have Wrangler on the side walls. I agree with throwingsticks about the 3.5 being the limited edition.
