That was non sas. We’ve seen a Sas at 11 but that one was idling. And back in the day a badlands at 17 or 18All of the screenshots of the dash that I've seen have shown numbers around 18-19 mpg. I suspect you'd have to floor it at every traffic light to get down to 12 mpg.
/Thank you for waiting.Great to have this description of what its like to sit in the OBX, since I'm 6'5" and concerned about the interior roominess of the vehicle. I ended up not approving my OBX order on March 19 because this and other information was not available. I've decided to delay my order until i can personally see and sit in a 2021 Bronco.
I also wonder about tire size, as mentioned by the article. Sasquatch it too much for me, but i would like the 33" Badlands tires and Bilstein shock package available on other trims as well, like the OBX. If not, id like to know if its a direct upgrade i could easily do after purchase.
So, waiting is the best option for me, even though I have an early reservation!
You also don't have a 10 speed transmission in the Flex either.I been driving a Ford Flex since they came out, its a rolling brick just like the Bronco styling. I've always have had the AWD 3.5L ecoboost engine. MPG sticker on flex is 16 city 22 highway. I would guess Bronco should be real close. I had the 2.7L also when I owned a 2017 Lincoln MKX. Always been using premium gas, since with the ecoboost engines you loose horsepower and torque when you use regular gas. Most of the time with like 80%+ city driving been getting 15-18 depending on the model year of the flex I've had. I have a 2018 flex now that gets the worst MPG of any of the flexs I've owned, getting 15mpg now no matter how I drive. Guessing maybe with the sasquatch Bronco they might knock the MPG down a little, 15 city 20-21 highway. With the ecoboost engine if you take your foot off the gas and let the vehicle coast when you can it does improve the MPG some.
Used to get mileage like that on my last flex, this one piece of junk. They screwed up the calibration on the engine software. Because nothing mechanical changed on the flex in many years.You also don't have a 10 speed transmission in the Flex either.
I average about 17-18 MPG around town with my Taurus SHO and I have a bit of a lead foot. Best MPG I've gotten is about 26 on a 2 1/2 hr highway trip.
Ford has to care because it impacts their fleet CAFE ratings. The numbers posted earlier aren't completely out of line with my expectations.I don't care if my Bronco gets 10 mpg in the city, not buying it for fuel economy. I've owned 3 lifted Jeeps that all got poor fuel economy, never cared.
Maybe you shouldn,t buy one if you are someone who will always be worrying about fuel economy.
