Yeah, It's crazy how heavy it seems to be but I think that's correct. The difference in curb weight between a base 2dr and 4dr wrangler Sport is 3970 vs 4,167 = 197lbs so not far off that.Then if left as-is, it puts base 2dr to base 4 dr @ 180 lbs?
Anyway, if correct, the fact that some 4 banger 2 doors could be 5K,
as much as an FSB, is kind of crazy.
Yeah, it is really nice having the ecoboost in the mountains. My current truck weighs at least 4800 unloaded, and has the first gen 2.7 with a 6 speed, and I can pretty effortlessly pass during any uphill stretch on I-70.My xterra weighs over 4900lbs now w/ its mods and even here in Denver (with the ~15% loss of power due to altitude) it has more than enough power. The only issue I ever have with it is on i-70 hills (which are higher altitude than denver). The bronco should do well up here due to turbos since they lose a lot less power due to altitude, and have more power to begin with on both engine sizes.
Hopefully when Ford puts out their 2021 towing guide it will itemize the weight of each option like they had in the past for the F series.What sucks is Ford took lazy approach and put the same Curb Wt. data (ranges) in all the Trims. So you cannot easily determine say how much the Badlands adds over BD with 2-door manual. That would be useful to know.
Eh, I wouldn't freak out too much. It looks about 200-300 lbs more than a Wrangler in Base trim. Other trims are probably similar. No big deal. Top end weights appear to be with every option box ticked. I'm sure a 4D Wrangler Rubicon with every option (auto, hard top, leather, etc) sitting on 35s is pushing 5,000 lbs as well.
Also, Base 2 door top weights don't make sense. How can a Badlands with Sasquatch only be 20 lbs heavier than a Badlands with manual on 33s? Just the tires add like 100 lbs.
Agreed. If you look at the fully loaded Bronco it’s got a lot of stuff added to it. Just the steel bumpers alone, iron block 2.7, plus the 35’s is going to drive up the weight. Looking briefly it seems like the 35’s are about 20 pounds heavier than a Jeep 33” tire, so that’s 100 extra pounds right off the bat.The fully loaded weights probably include the steel bumpers, skid plates, hard top, and 35” tires. If so, that is very close to what my 2012 4 door rubicon weighed (5,280) after adding bumpers, full skid plates, 37’s, and a winch.
