Hi all from Dubai ..

We are an off road group most of us owning jeeps, I tried XJ, ZJ, JL, JK and Toyota FJ, Landcruser etc ..

Like most of you I'm here because i was waiting for the new bronco, bought a 1993 used but to be honest it was a bad experience for me don't get me wrong, it got a strong engine but others are better to drive in the real sand dunes was expecting better handling !!

Jeep are good over the years need small modifications and off you go specially the 3.6 pentastar any way I'm here not to talk about other cars but like most of you just love cars and like to talk about them !!

Back to the amazing new Bronco ..
Here is my questions :

Can the 2.7 Ecoboost handle the heat, I mean real hot weather 105 to 130F 40 to 55C ?

Yes no body well go to the desert in this weather for fun but i like to DD my cars and in summer this is our weather how the turbo can handle this heat ?

Transmission .. I read that the 10 speed transmission is not that good can someone give us a good idea about it or if any problems with it ..?

Yes i love manual but sadly its not with 2.7 and I think dealer here well not bring the 2.3 any idea if Ford will put the manual on the 2.7 engine in the future ?


There are many different trims which one you choose and why I'm confused between them .. let me hear what's your choice and why so i can change my mind !!

For now my choice is Carbonized Gray two Doors Outer Banks !

Saw a YouTube video that tank size is a lot smaller than 4 doors can any one confirm that ?

Many of you know about jeep wave do i need to grow my beard for my next bronco !!

Sorry if there is mistakes English is my second language ..

Waiting to hear from you
Thanks ..

Yes, despite what many people think, we have deserts in the US too that get just as hot and the 2.7 has been out for long enough and tested in these areas to prove it is a non-issue.

Transmission .. I read that the 10 speed transmission is not that good can someone give us a good idea about it or if any problems with it ..?
10 Speed gets mainly positive reviews. I think they had some issues with it in the beginning with the Mustang, but it's been worked out for the most part. It's used on Raptor too...which tends to get abused by some people.

Welcome to the forums! Trim all comes down to your personal needs. There is a post with a poll to select your trim and everyone has commented on their reasoning for their selections there. Go check it out and you might get some good ideas!

Hi Ahmed,

I work in the middle east and travel and visit in Dubai quite a bit. I live in the mountains of Nevada/California and am getting the 2 door Badlands with 2.3 and the manual with no Sasquatch. If I were you and lived in Dubai, would definitely get the Wildtrak 2 door with the auto, 2.7 and Sasquatch. This is based on seeing the terrain you have out there. The Baja mode with the 2.7 would be a blast in UAE.

For the price here in UAE I think you should get the wildtrack , it came standard with every option except high/lux package & leather seats

Welcome to the forum!!
It’s great to see people from overseas on here.
I spent a couple years in Bahrain way back and went to Debai a few times. Awesome place. I want to go back with my family some time soon.
Good luck with your 2021 Bronco search.

That’s pretty close the the weather in the Middle East. I’ve seen it up to the 130s while I was there for a couple years.

Will Bronco be sold in Dubai? Or will you just buy one and import it?

Welcome to the forum Ahmed. I don't have much for suggestions on your needs for driving in your country, but I can speak a little to the 10 speed tranny. My wife has one in her Mustang GT, and it is different from the 6 speeds she has had over the years. I'm quite sure the tune in the tranny will be different for the Bronco compared to the Mustang, but the 10 speed works quite well. In the cars it is kind of lazy while changing gears in standard drive mode, but put it in "Sport" mode and it really comes alive with quick up/down shifts. And the rev match is amazing. All in all I'm happy with the 10 speed in the Mustang so far. I am hoping Ford will tune the 10 speed in the Bronco properly for what we will expect from the vehicle. I think you will like the way it operates. Hope this helps a little.

I lived in Dubai for 6 months. The Wildtrak trim with the Sasquatch package as standard would be the PERFECT option For Dubai, given the desert terrain surrounding the UAE, and with your low fuel prices, you won’t feel much of a pinch from lower fuel economy due to the 35” tires.
