It looks very 80’s to me. Like a lame Knight Rider.
Right? And they obviously have the capabilty to make something much better. It's really confusing because it almost doesn't look like it belongs in the Bronco.

it seems possible on straight highway. if a four door, that multiplied by the indicated fuel to empty on the bigger tank lines up. Good deal if accurate.

adding 'lame' to "Knight Rider" is completely redundant, BTW.

Hello again :)
While viewing Broncos in San Diego, I messed with the cluster to see what's there, it was cool but I couldn't help to not notice the 20.1 Average MPG!
While I have no idea how the car was driven but I am guessing no one bothered to reset it.

I understand that mileage is not a concern for a lot of people, but where I live, we will hit $5 very soon, having a decent 20 mpg is nice to have specially for someone like me who does 1500+ miles per month.
I take it this is the Outer Banks model with the ugly 18 inch wheels which means you will be lucky to get 16 mpg with the Sasquatch package! :rolleyes:

218 to E with a little less than 1/2 tank left.
218 to E
Considering the tank size, I was wanting to say they must have just filled up! LOL

It will all depend on how you drive. I can get 21 in my F150... by going 55mph. Go 80 and get 16.5. Remember rated mpg is based on 55-60 mph and isn’t close to real world driving. If you have to get 20, go slow, stay off the dirt and enjoy looking good.

1500 miles a month....California......You really should buy a prius. I dont really say that to many people but I've seen CA gas prices and they are nuts!!!
The 2.7 does really well. I bet the sasquatch gets 17 or 18...

I'm glad someone else said it. I have always thought the gauge cluster looked tacky. At least give a dark mode or something.

Lord help me if the only tach in that cluster is a bar.....

the one thing they messed up was the cluster. Analog tach, digital everything else. I'd take an along speedo and tach with a center screen, but man they need to revisit this.

I know you can force dark mode on the center screen, not sure if you can for the gauge cluster.

(ignore all the numbers, this is a design render)

The balance of the tank is more telling than the MPGs achieved thus far, given idling and break in. 218 miles implies 22.7 mpg mixed according to the computer. That seems spot on for a non sas 4 door

and yes. To me the biggest gripe about things Ford clearly held back on for a readdress (besides rear ac vents) is the lack of full lcd cluster. Even with the lux package this should be full lcd like the f150. Just another one of those intentional things they decided to not offer. It’s just freaking obvious as over the past couple years the gauge cluster is like the go to thing to intentionally not go full LCD on the first model year only to give it later. Same thing on my Volvo. First model year didn’t have it when other higher end volvos did. You knew they could make it....easily...I waited a couple months for the second model year and wow shocker. All of a sudden they had a full LCD cluster.

As for lack of rear ac vents on the initial model year, that’s like a move from 20 years ago. Kudos to ford for the balls of steel to revert to a two decade old tactic of trickery
