Thanks for the pictures. This looks very promising, as the rear suspension seems to be barely sagging if at all with this large (but empty) trailer. Our 4 door wrangler sinks more in the rear with just a jet ski in tow, and sinks almost down to the bottom with a 3500 lb enclosed work trailer (I only tow that at low speeds around refineries), and that wrangler is rated the same as the bronco at 3500 lbs. I don’t want to speak too soon, but this helps solidify my suspicion that a 4 door bronco can be capable of safely towing more than 3500 lbs if necessary.

Doesn't look photoshopped to me. Anyone have any idea what that trailer weighs? Looks like a medium size steel trailer.

If that is a Big Tex or something close, that is a heavy trailer. (7,000-9000LB)
It looks like a 20' 100A. It's GVWR is 9,900. Trailer itself is listed as 3200 and change empty. Still heavy for an empty trailer, but just enough weight left on the Bronco's 3500 lbs tow rating for a small 250 ish pound bike 🤣

It must be right on the nose. All sorts of modifications to that trailer, looks like they were done to reach a certain weight.
have no idea, but that was my thought too, it’s weighted to match max capacity for testing.

That would be the logical answer but this is 6G , logic is out the window .
Ford is testing max towing weight .

I think they are filling in the Tow Chart Specs. OBX and BB non Sas will have the highest capacity because they don't have the steel bumpers, disconnect, and bash plates. Badlands and FE with Sas will be the worst having all the rock crawling stuff on them. Probably why you can't get a tow package with the FE. It is going to be a Jeep Gladiator situation.

Its going to be a pathetic 3500lb in an “SUV”.

Definitely a 100a. Looks more like a 16’. That’s still 3000# empty. More importantly that’s a 400# tongue weight empty.
Even with no passengers or luggage the rear suspension doesn’t seem to be sagging much
