I just saw an article that was last updated on Dec 22 on cjponyparts.com. Along with the specs that we are all very intimately familiar with, they posted estimated fuel economy numbers for the 2 and 4 door bronco. I was unaware that ford has provided fuel economy estimates. Did ford share numbers that I am unaware of or did this website just take a guess? They list their source for all of their information as "ford".

https://www.cjponyparts.com/resources/news/2021-ford-bronco

The numbers are posted as the very last item in the bronco specs table just a short way down the web page. 2 door and 4 door were estimated at identical fuel numbers.

20 city/ 24 hwy/ 22 comb (2.3 L), 16 city/25 hwy/19 comb (2.7 L)

The numbers seem believable, I was just not aware they had been released.

Edit: It was pointed out below that these numbers were estimated by the article writers using similar vehicles in the ford lineup.

Interesting that the 2.7 get 1 mpg more than the 2.3 on the highway.

This is a common practice until they finalize testing with the Feds. Same with horsepower. Final numbers are not known, but those fuel economy numbers don't sound wrong given the nature of the vehicle.

Call BS on the numbers only because they have the 4dr the same as the 2dr :)

That said, fueleconomy.gov has the 2021 F150 4x4 with 2.7 at....

Right at the top of the specs page you link; they specifically say it is estimates they made from similar vehicles, it is just a guess they made, not from Ford.

Please delete the numbers from your post before it becomes inviolate fact from repetition

Ahh I didn't see that. Thanks for spotting that and clearing up the confusion. I figured they were taking some liberties but wasn't sure.

I bet the non squatch broncos may meet this on paper but not be any better...These are 5000# bricks that are certainly less aerodynamic than f150s with their super low air dams, etc.

My F350 with a 6" lift and 38's got 13mpg, so anything better is fine.

I believe it was the GVWR document Ford released just the other day that still had MPG listed as TBD.

LOL.
