  1. Drag Race by TFL: Bronco First Edition 2.7L vs. Jeep Wrangler 4XE vs. Toyota FJ

    This, at $50k+ I expect/require a V8, at $38k my expectations aren’t as high.
  2. A Wrangler Owner/Enthusiast/Builder honest review of the 2021 Bronco -- long...

    A lot of cope here for someone that was wrong in so many ways. You might want to re-read the document you linked to earlier. You’re judging engine weight by entire vehicle weight when you can full well see the larger engine options use beefier components which account for that added weight.
  3. A Wrangler Owner/Enthusiast/Builder honest review of the 2021 Bronco -- long...

    Except you are incorrect, the 5.0 weighs 430lbs with accessories while the 2.7 weighs 440lbs. This is easily verifiable if you took a couple minutes to look it up. https://www.autoweek.com/news/a1907731/ford-27-liter-ecoboost-v6-deep-dive/...
  4. A Wrangler Owner/Enthusiast/Builder honest review of the 2021 Bronco -- long...

    It’s not really just this thread, it’s really any enthusiast forum. People get blindsided by a product that they really love and cannot look at it objectively. I get it, the options on the market for real SUVs is extremely limited, you have the Bronco, Wrangler, 4Runner and GX, and when the...
  5. A Wrangler Owner/Enthusiast/Builder honest review of the 2021 Bronco -- long...

    Except, at least in Fords case, the 5.0L weighs less than the 2.7L. There’s a lot of V6 cope on these forums for what is really a less than stellar engine, and I have quite a lot of seat time behind it.
  6. Would you want a V8 Bronco?

    Yes, absolutely the 2.7L is a dog and unfitting for a $50k vehicle. An off-road open top and a V8 is a match made in heaven.
  7. Wrangler Rubicon 392 "Hemi"

    I think the price is a bit crazy but the idea is exactly what the off-road community has been needing for the past 10 years since the last V8 offroader left the stage. Realistically this should be a $50k Jeep for the Everyman, paying $50k to be stuck with a 6 cylinder is laughable at best.
  8. Yikes, my dealer has two Ranger Tremors in

    I don’t see the point in spending so much money and still being stuck with a small engine. I didn’t put myself through college and work my self up to where I am today to settle for a 4 cylinder. But the difference is I’m an enthusiast, so I would be frustrated and disappointed in myself every...
  9. Yikes, my dealer has two Ranger Tremors in

    I don’t mind spending money for a vehicle I want, but a 4 cylinder is an entry level engine whether it has 200HP or 800HP, so $40k for a 4 cylinder? Hell no, even if it had decent sized tires.
  10. Is anyone else cancelling and getting the F150 Lightning?

    I suppose if you don’t ever go places and do things with your life, but for the majority of Americans that just can’t cut it. I don’t know what I’ll do tomorrow, I could end up two states away if that’s what the day brings. I think I took 12 vacations last year alone, and that does not scratch...
  11. Is anyone else cancelling and getting the F150 Lightning?

    But an ICE vehicle does 100% of an ICE vehicle and can function as an only car - something an EV, at this time, cannot dream of doing. Especially not with 300 miles of range. I’d have bigger things in life to worry about if I couldn’t afford the cost of gas, and buying an EV would be at the...
  12. Ford should of not made so many bronco models

    Honestly I feel the exact opposite, I thought the Bronco would have had more options and availabilities than they did.
  13. Official MPG figures: 2021 Bronco 2.3L and 2.7L fuel economy

    I filled up a 32 gallon H2 that at the time only achieved 10.5MPG (pre regear) the whole way through that $3.50/gal phase. Getting 17MPG is a humongous increase, should feel like a Prius. My only two complaints with the MPG are the lack of a V8 that would likely do just as good on fuel...
  14. Official MPG figures: 2021 Bronco 2.3L and 2.7L fuel economy

    F150 weighs between 4-5,000 lbs, the Bronco is between 4-4,500lbs. Base Bronco and what they put on most F150s have about the same tire size. So yes probably 1,000lbs from each extreme. I don’t disagree with what your hitting at. Maybe Ford is being conservative with their ratings. It’s quite a...
  15. Official MPG figures: 2021 Bronco 2.3L and 2.7L fuel economy

    F150 has tiny 255 tires, 3.15 gearing, active aero shudders, air dams out the arse, plastic cladding under the truck directing air flow, the tires are tucked into the body and air is directed away from them, the truck has tons of little things that add up. The Bronco doesn’t have those things...
  16. Official MPG figures: 2021 Bronco 2.3L and 2.7L fuel economy

    How are they impossible? They seem quite reasonable if it were a V8, and being that the smaller engines will likely spend their lives in boost it makes sense to a degree that MPG would be in the high teens.
  17. Official MPG figures: 2021 Bronco 2.3L and 2.7L fuel economy

    I agree they’re lower than one should expect out of such tiny engines but I think you’re going to be disappointed if you expect those figures you posted. These are real true SUVs not the mommy minivan crap you see rolling around with front wheel drive and and plastic panels adorning the...
  18. You won’t like this.. but hear me out

    Bronco has no option for AWD, auto 4wd engages a temporary 50:50 split after slip has been detected, its reactive, different than a proactive AWD system.
  19. Toyota Tacoma .. issues

    Ehh Toyota’s not made in Japan have been trash for a long time, hardly surprising. OTOH the Japanese built trucks are very good quality, my mother has averaged 19.1MPG on her 2016 4Runner which has been flawless
  20. Sasquatch in the snow

    Idk about the Goodyear’s but I’ve driven 37” KO2s in the snow since the year they were introduced and I can hardly even make them spin from a stop in snow.
