  1. Engine fluttering sound upon acceleration | 2.3L

    Golly I hope I am over-reacting and being paranoid, but in my experience with vehicles, I rarely am... Bronco hit 1800 miles recently and suddenly its making an odd fluttering sound when accelerating - seems to be correlated to the RPM's. It borderline sounds like a leaf is stuck in a fan...
  2. Bronco Engine RPM Calculator (for specific tire sizes & axle ratios)

    So... I starting looking at tires I could put on my Bronco when it eventually (hopefully) gets here next year. I'm still debating between the Black Diamond and Badlands, which have different axle ratios. I was doing some math to figure out what the engine RPM would be at specific tire sizes &...
  3. [Poll] How stupid am I for clinging on to hope of a future 2.7 V6 / 7MT Bronco?

    Well guys, a year after being told "no" to this option combination, I'm still here daydreaming about it. I'd like to know if there is anyone else holding on to hope for this to happen in the future? @Ford Motor Company
  4. Why I switched to the 2.3L over the 2.7L...

    The 2.7 is an extremely powerful engine. The twin turbos really add an incredible amount of torque. Unfortunately, I think the 2.7 has too much torque for the 10R60 transmission the Bronco is getting. In fact, the 10R60 transmission only has a torque rating slightly above what the stock 2.7 puts...
  5. The Twin Red Badlands in Omaha, NE 4/15/21

    The twin Badlands made their way through Omaha last week. These are basically identical except for the color and MGV vs Leather, I believe. Kinda late posting this (and I’m sure we’ve all seen their pictures a thousand times by now) but I figured I’d share my photos and thoughts on them after...
  6. What is the standard engine and transmission that comes with the Sasquatch Package?

    I started configuring my 2021 Bronco this morning and noticed when I click to add the sasquatch package it says the 2.3L EcoBoost and 10-speed automatic transmission is included! From the research I have done I haven't seen the option for that configuration that it is one or the other the 2.3L...
  7. Engines at Altitude

    Hi all. Apologies if this has already been covered - I searched around but couldn't find anything. I'm in Indiana, so I didn't have any concerns with the 2.3, but I'm considering a move to the Colorado Springs area. I'd be driving at high altitude a lot, and I wondered if I should have any...
  8. Performing engine break in period (breaking in) during long delivery roadtrip?

    I have a reservation with Granger and will be coming from Utah (15 HR drive). What are your thoughts about breaking in the engine over that long drive...
  9. Rumors: New Bronco to resemble Troller and powered by EcoBoost V6

    An article from Gearpatrol purports to reveal some new Ford Bronco details directly from a Ford Engineer familiar with the development of the 2020/2021 Bronco. Here's the summary of the claimed details: Bronco is in 3rd design phase (typically, there's only one phase). Another design study has...
