Does anyone have payload and towing capacities for the different trim levels of the new bronco?

These numbers are very important to me. I am surprised Ford did not make them available at launch.

I’m surprised by the 3,500 MAX tow rating. I was expecting more.

3,500 lb would work for me, but not less. I’m also curious what trims/ options carry that rating.

3500 disappoints me. I was hoping they would offer at least 4000lbs to up the ante on the Jeep's 3500lb capacity Do you have a source for this number? I would also like to see which models carry this capacity.

“Dimensions and Capacities” sheet released by Ford lists the max. Does not detail by trim though.

stupid low tow rating.... guess I'll be getting the new F-150 "EcoPower" or whatever its called
There is an asterisk at the bottom of the form that says all specs are available for change. Maybe they'll improve the towing before they ship. I certainly hope they do. I would also like to see the 2.7l v6 paired with the 7 speed manual. Ford, please make that happen!

I sure hope the 2.7 bumps towing capacity up to something like 5,000 lbs (or more)
Engine power is one of the least important factors for tow rating. They could put a F350 powerstroke in there and it wouldn't up the tow rating. Suspension, brakes, gearing, wheelbase, overall mass of the vehicle, etc, will restrict the tow rating before a lack of power does.

LoL, the weight of the big PowerStroke would decrease the tow rating. Plus, they would not have enough frontal area for a radiator big enough to keep it the engine cool, further reducing the tow rating.

Does any of that apply to the 2.7? Maybe.

really hoping this is based on 2.3 and the 2.7 with tow package changes it, would be nice at 5k.
