Not too bad. I mean it is a body on frame...that frame being boxed and all the modern crash/safety designed construction.

FWIW quick curb weight from the goog....

just to show how heavy more performance oriented cars are.
2020 Ford Mustang GT - 3,705
2020 Dodge Hemi Charger - 4,385
2020 Dodge Hemi Challenger - 4,182
2020 Chevy Camaro lt1 lightest - 3,619 heaviest 2SS 1LE -3,762

More in line with 4x4's...well probably not the blazer...might as well just rename that the Karen.
2020 Jeep 4 door Rubicon - 4,449
2020 Chevy Blazer - 3,782 - 4,287
2020 Toyota 4Runner - 4,400 - 4,805
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee - 4,513 - 5,356
2020 Ford Ranger - 3,922 - 4,441
2020 Chevy Colorado ZR2 - 4,600 - 4,704
2020 F150 2.7 4343 - 4859

Just for S--ts and giggles -

1996 Ford Bronco XLT - 4,616
1973 Ford Bronco - 3,560
2001 Jeep Cherokee - 2,928 - 3,360


Now the fun question what is the HP/TRQ per ton, 1,00lb or as below simply per lb. I am just going to do the 2020 bronco but leave the hp/trq numbers.

2020 Bronco 2.3 hp/tq 270/310 2door = 15.99/13.93 16.1/13.99 4door 16.7/14.5 16.7/14.5
2020 Bronco 2.7 hp/tq 310/400 2door = 15.99/12.4 16.1/12.4 4door 16.1/12.5 16.9/13.1

2020 Jeep Wrangler lowest hp/tq 285/260
2020 jeep wrangler highest hp/tq 270/295 16.4/15.1
2020 jeep wrangler Diesel hp/tq 260/442

2020 toyota 4runner hp/tq 270/278 16.3/15.8

Ford Ranger hp/tq 270/310

2020 chevy colorado ZR2 Diesel hp/tq 186/369
2020 chevy colorado ZR2 gas hp/tq 308/275 4,600 - 4,704 14.9/16.7 15.3/17.1

2020 Chevy blazer lowest hp/tq 193/144
2020 Chevy blazer mid hp/tq 230/258
2020 chevy blazer highest hp/tq 308/269

2020 F150 2.7 325/400 13.4/10.9 15/12.1

----------------------------------
1996 bronco lowest hp/tq 185/270 25/17.1
1996 bronco highest hp/tq 210/328 22/14.1

1973 bronco lowest hp/tq 84/151 42.4/23.6
1973 bronco highest hp/tq 141/230 25.2/15.5

2001 jeep cherokee hp/tq 190/225 15.4/13.0 17.7/14.9

Looks like it will actually weigh about the same as my f-150 crew cab 😂 that steel cage must be pretty beefy!

Looking at the hp/tq between the 2.3 and 2.7 is very close.

On the low end of weight for the 2 door the 2.3 v 2.7 there is a 1.5-1.6lb per lb of trq difference and = for hp.

On the 4 door the 2.7 is carrying .6lb less per hp at the low weight end and actually is .2 more compared to the 2.3 on the high end. On the trq side the 2.7 is carrying 2lbs less per lbtq or 1.4 less per ftpd.

All this is saying in the end...the 2.7 and 10spd is probably a heavy B. They are VERY close and of course my assumption is that a safe warranty friendly tune will be available for both engines at your local dealer at some point.

>5000 pounds is just too heavy for a 2 door. Even with 35s. I'm starting to think these are going to be underpowered even with the 2.7. Going to wait to see how it shakes out as far as real world driving tests.

Bronco is between 16-16.7 hp per lb and 12.4-14.5 per lbtq
F150 2.7 is between 13.4-15hp per lb and 11-12.1 per lbtq

I would caveat the F150 as it is a truck to haul and has a 5,000-8,500 tow rating so I would expect to see a unloaded higher per lb. Also the F150 2.7 has 3.73 gears and a steeper gear in the bronco will improve the "feel" of the power.

straight power to weight it looks like it will be kind of in line with 2001 Cherokee. Again with gearing might feel better too.

just a dyno of both gas engines for both Jeep and Bronco.

underpowered will not be what people describe the bronco engine.
I get a feeling a significant number of people here have never driven an Ecoboost powered Ranger/Mustang or F-150.

They just see 2.3 4 cylinder or 2.7 V6 and scoff at the thought.

When people start taking delivery on these trucks there will be threads popping up left and right titled, "This thing is quick", "I was wrong about the 2.3", or "So this is what torque feels like".

This. I’ve had experience in an F-150 crew cab with the 2.7. It wasn’t underpowered at all. Pair that with the Bronco and the 10 speed and it’ll boogie.

I have less experience in the 2.3 and it was in a lighter car. Still plenty for an off roader. Good peak numbers and an excellent area under the curve compared the competition.

My brother took out a Ranger. He said it was gutless. 😔
