So I towed with my Bronco/ Wildtrak w/ HOSS 3.0 Suspension / 2 door last night. Small trailer with big mower est. 1500lbs. Pulled great with zero issues. We have an uphill ramp onto the interstate my 3.5 eco boost F-150 pulled to 70mph easily, our 3.0 Ecoboost Explorer would get there if you was into the gas. Bronco never went above 2500rpms and was about 72 mph at the end.

So my opinion it closer to the F-150 than an Explorer. pulled at 72 mph with no down shifting in settle hills. Filled up to get an idea on MPG 15.2 over 48 miles about 20 miles on interstate rest in traffic in town.

On of my likes is the tight turning radius. Little trailers will not turn under the truck. You can really control trailer backing up. I’m sure some rookie backing a boat up will still F things up. Experienced guys will love it.

I also noticed it was quite compared some of our other cars. SUVs are very noisy with this combo.

How were the dynamics on the open highway?

The 2 door maneuverability is so tight. Especially compared to an F150 which steers like the Titanic. It's got to be like moving a trailer around with a forklift.

The thing that frustrates me about towing with the Bronco is the fact that the hitch is virtually unusable without an extension. The spare tire sits so close to the hitch that you cannot use the latch on the trailer properly unless you use a drop hitch which may not be appropriate for all trailers. Anyway, it's a minor problem & just a PIA when towing.

That is exactly how it feels
Towing only 1500 lbs its going to feel ike its not even pulling a trailer.
true it didn’t even feel it back there. Which surprised me as same set up on the explorer you could tell you was pull something. The Explorer towing is much higher and motor more powerful. I’m sure it the gearing

Been think about changing to WT just to get the HOSS 3.0 when I reorder for 2023
I’m hearing it will be an option and you do not have to go Wildtrak. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

I have hauled 2900lbs (maxing out trailer tires) with manual ford focus' no problem. The 2-door manual Bronco makes it seem like nothing is there. Granny gear starting out on a hill is cheating.

I got a 4 door. But coming from a old 2 door f150, insanely more maneuverable. Feels closer to rental cars I've had than that 2006 f150.
