Ford seems to be overly optimistic with their MPG. My F-150 window sticker claims I should get 23 mpg on the hwy. 20 is the best I ever got, and I was doing 60 mph. At 75mph, the flow of traffic its 18.5 to 19 mpg. This is the 3.5 motor. Suppose to get 18 around town. I get 17 to 18.5 around town.

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.
I think the highway numbers are high for both engines

I bet it's going to be significantly worse than this, especially with the squatch. They just released the ranger tremor mpg at 19 city and highway, whereas the regular 4x4 ranger is 19/24. So my guess is that the offroad packages significantly lower fuel economy. Either that or the extra weight/resistance of the ranger tremor package constantly keeps the small 2.3L turbos spooling. I wouldn't be surprised if the 2.7L in the Broncos gets better fuel economy than the 2.3L as the 2.7L probably won't have to use boost to keep the bronc rolling at 65 mph on a flat highway while the 2.3L will.

Well if Ford it trying to compete with Jeep, Rubicon Unlimiteds are getting mid 20s with their 4 and just under 20 with their 3.6.

So I hope, at least for my sake, they do better or at least what jeep does.

Isn't the test done on a dyno? And the max speed for the highway portion is like 60mph.

I've hit 24mpg in my F150 at 55-60mph on secondary roads over a 50 mile stretch (and 23.5 over 75miles with the last 25 miles in 4wd at the same speeds). crew cab, 4wd, 5.0. with about 1000lb between passengers, dogs and luggage.

I've found that I can usually exceed the EPA numbers but only if I literally drive the speed limit on the highway and drive like I have an egg under my foot in the city...and that is sections of the highway where the speed limit is not 70+mph.

Either way, if you're that concerned about mpg, this probably is not the right vehicle for you (not you specifically, just in general)

The base will have the highest gears .The other 2 gears with the lowest 4.70 will get the worst MPG .

Ive kept track of my fuel since day 1 on my 2019 3.5 F150 with Fuelly. I'm at 18.1 mpg over 31k miles. That's with a couple thousand miles of 11 mpg while towing averaged in. Best tank ever was 22 mpg, the EPA rating for highway. I find it pretty easy to get the city and mixed driving numbers. The hwy rating is a lot tougher unless there's ideal conditions and I don't go over 70 mph.

My truck gets a combined avg of 11-13 depending on my driving, so anything I get from the 2.3 will suffice
