  1. Temperature reading / thermometer on the instrument cluster has a different number than the one on the radio screen

    The one in the infotainment screen where you highlighted it is the climate control set point the exterior temperature is next to the passenger side climate control temperature set point.
  2. New correct dipstick (here's part number) solves 2.7L 7-quarts engine oil capacity / maximum fill amount mystery! 🕵🏻‍♂️

    Basically it is an unknown reason why they over filled the engine at the factory, but the messaging is being cleared up to say that it should be a 6 quart service fill. Due to the fact that they have units in the field already running 7 quart service fills, and the unknown 7.5 quart dry fill...
  3. What's your unpopular Bronco opinion?

    They do on trims without the washout floor and mgv seats, but because the headliner may cause issues with being able to wash out the interior they want to be sure that you actually want it there.
  4. Ways to eek out better gas mileage?!

    They got that from the picture of the gauges showing 424.2 miles traveled in 14.3 hours is an overall average speed of 29.66 mph. Obviously unless this was a steady state cruise at that speed it also includes time stopped and time at higher speeds but that averages out to a much lower speed in...
  5. 2023 Bronco Heritage Edition Revealed! 1,966 Heritage Limited Edition (Badlands) Units to be Produced. Unlimited (Big Bend) Heritage Editions

    Guess it varies a little bit based on location, but I was seeing $44,765 -1595 destination and delivery, but plus a potential increase of $1600 for the next model year, which put it as being more expensive than my previous calculations and reduces the difference to the big bend being $460-$465...
  6. 2023 Bronco Heritage Edition Revealed! 1,966 Heritage Limited Edition (Badlands) Units to be Produced. Unlimited (Big Bend) Heritage Editions

    It was about $1300 more for the heritage package assuming that some one else said they expected a $1600 price increase on the 23 models over the 22 models, and ~$2900 over the 2022.5 price level today. "Bronco Heritage will start at $44,305 and Heritage Limited will be priced at $66,895."...
  7. 2023 Bronco Heritage Edition Revealed! 1,966 Heritage Limited Edition (Badlands) Units to be Produced. Unlimited (Big Bend) Heritage Editions

    It's 1966, but they didn't say if it's 1966 2 + 4 doors together or 1966 each of the 2 door and 4 door, but it does say "Ford will build just 1,966 units of each Heritage Limited Edition model to commemorate the year the original Bronco debuted." So is it 1966 combined or 3932 (1996 2 door +...
  8. Quick HE question: V6 optional?

    It is not fully known yet, but the press is saying that the standard Heritage should be 2.3L Standard 7mt/10a and 2.7L V6 optional, after all the Big Bend trim that it was built off of is available with both power trains. The Heritage Limited is only available with the 2.7L 10A combination as...
  9. 2023 Bronco Heritage Edition Revealed! 1,966 Heritage Limited Edition (Badlands) Units to be Produced. Unlimited (Big Bend) Heritage Editions

    It depends on if Ford will allow them to change the priority code once the order is entered beyond the standard range of 10-19 or if they have to contact their zone rep to get it changed, and in that case they may be too lazy to get in contact with the zone rep
  10. 2023 Bronco Heritage Edition Revealed! 1,966 Heritage Limited Edition (Badlands) Units to be Produced. Unlimited (Big Bend) Heritage Editions

    Nope, they only showed the 5 door as a heritage limited in the press release, but the text inside the release says it's available on both the 3 and 5 doors (2 and 4 passenger egress doors plus the swing gate), so it's going to be available on both body styles of the Bronco plus the Bronco Sport.
  11. New correct dipstick (here's part number) solves 2.7L 7-quarts engine oil capacity / maximum fill amount mystery! 🕵🏻‍♂️

    The issue with them changing course and saying that for service fill you should only use 6 quarts does not explain why they then considerably overfilled the engines at the factory with 7.5 quarts of oil if this was supposed to be the carry over service fill from say the mostly similar Gen 2 2.7L...
  12. New correct dipstick (here's part number) solves 2.7L 7-quarts engine oil capacity / maximum fill amount mystery! 🕵🏻‍♂️

    No, you're looking at the engineering part number which is stamped on the dip stick, but this corresponds to one of the two FT4Z-6750 service part numbers. Now why they put only one of these numbers and not both, if they don't put the service part numbers on the part I can't answer that. That's...
  13. New correct dipstick (here's part number) solves 2.7L 7-quarts engine oil capacity / maximum fill amount mystery! 🕵🏻‍♂️

    Every manufacturer will fill to a higher level on a dry engine vs during a service change because a dry engine needs to be lubricated and there are oil lines and passages that will retain oil, though in the case of this particular 2.7L EcoBoost the mystery besides why it allegedly took so long...
  14. Do you prefer the Heritage Edition in Big Bend or Badlands version?

    It's 1966 of the Heritage Limited (unsure if that's both 2/4 doors, or 1966 each across the 2 door and four door, there also will be 1966 Heritage Limited Bronco Sports), but the standard badlands is not limited in the same way.
  15. New SSM 51014 released by Ford explaining 2.7 engine dipstick confusion

    No, there seems to be a lot of people getting confused, because of the communication coming from Ford from order to delivery, and then with things like this. If they can't even attach the windshields properly, are we sure they are able to give a correct answer about the oil level? Basically...
  16. New correct dipstick (here's part number) solves 2.7L 7-quarts engine oil capacity / maximum fill amount mystery! 🕵🏻‍♂️

    Yes and no, it depends on if you can trust the SSMs to be correct, as the one correcting the oil level states that it's really personal preference to run 6 or 7 quarts as they explicitly stated that while following the old capacity was unnecessary, it would not cause harm to the engine. They...
  17. Dealer Shout-Outs for Honoring Price

    That was what I was expecting, however my sales person acted like they had not even received the invoice the day it arrived and wasn't even aware that it had arrived until after I saw the tracking say it was delivered shortly before they opened for the day and contacted them to check. They...
  18. New SSM 51014 released by Ford explaining 2.7 engine dipstick confusion

    According to Ford they filled these specific 2.7L EcoBoosts with 7.5 quarts at the factory, but because of the dip sticks reading massively over full with 7.5 quarts factory fill and 7 quarts service fill they want you to only use 6 quarts now, however in the same breath they said running 7...
  19. Dealer Shout-Outs for Honoring Price

    North Brothers Ford did mostly honor the original 22 pricing, though they didn't take the price protection off up front, so that cost the additional tax money to the state, and they snuck in wheel locks on my A-plan order and used my ford pass points for a limited service plan good for 3 oil...
  20. New SSM 51014 released by Ford explaining 2.7 engine dipstick confusion

    Lol, my local dealers didn't want to even try, and ordering the -b online got canceled right away also, so that's frustrating. Well they did say anything between 6-7 quarts is acceptable now, even though that muddles the point as to what is 1 vs 2 quarts low now. I found the part on Ford Parts...
