I think the highway numbers are high for both enginesI 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".
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.
Isn't the test done on a dyno? And the max speed for the highway portion is like 60mph.I think the highway numbers are high for both engines
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.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.
