No troll. And I hope my information is bad. I was told by a green stripe employee that works in dyno testing that the nano (2.7) would not be available at launch. Just relaying what I heard.
I call b.s., for Fords sake. If Ford can't deliver the signature engine that's in the First Edition and WildTrak then that's a bigger embarrassment than the grey MIC top.

If that were the case don't you think they would've included the info with the email to WT and FE res holders about the black mod tops? Seeing as how they come standard with the V6?

Everything else not available at launch has been left off the B&P.

Also, the 2.7 is available elsewhere mated to the 10spd. This is not some new engine. The only difference would be mounts which are not difficult.

You're trippin.

I was thinking that perhaps the 2.7 isn’t available as an option, meaning if it is standard for a given trim level then it will be in the truck. I don’t work for Ford. I don’t know if what I relayed is true, it is just what I heard. Take it with a grain of salt.

Nobody here has any idea what kind of engine is in that Bronco. It is a brief video filmed from far away in sand. How well or poorly each vehicle does from a dig is dependent much more on available traction and much less on engine power.

Oh, and Raptors are not that fast. I know there is a lot of Ford leg humping that goes on regarding that truck but they just are not that quick in reality.
Come and ride in my regular 3.5EB F150 supercrew and you’ll say otherwise when compared to other 1/2 ton Dodge, Chevy, Nissan etc..

My spray can of cactus gray arrived today, going to do a few paint samples this weekend with both a white primer and gray primer since I have no idea what color they lay down for a base primer.

So 0-60 in 5.5 or less isn't that fast? Are we comparing trucks or sports cars?

I did a quick search and found 5.5 was the slowest of the 0-60 times quoted by major sources for the 450 HP 3.5 EB.

Japanese car/SUV unfortunately
Don't forget carbon grey. It also looks great with the grey mic top and I've seen quite a few including myself who are leaning that way. Cactus grey does look awesome in this video, though. Tough decision!
I haven’t seen a good photo though of carbon grey with the MIC grey top. Looks good on the B&AP CGI, but that shows the MIC grey as darker than it really is. Carbon Grey will be in my top 3 if it looks good in real light, also because not as many people will be getting that color

There is a guy that painted little mock ups, he knew how it was done. But this is just gloss primer color.
Ah yes, I remember that thread now as that's how I came across the paint code and website to order from.
