There Are No Plans To Put A V4 In The Ford Bronco: Engineer I Made Up

Graphic: Jason Torchinsky, Ford

You may remember way back to yesterday, the day we finally maybe detected bacteria farts in the atmosphere of Venus, that a Ford engineer confirmed that no, the new Ford Bronco will not be getting an optional V8. While this is very important news to have, I nevertheless felt it didn’t go far enough. So, I pushed further, and can now with great certainty say that the new Ford Bronco will also not be getting a V4 engine, either.

Additionally, further investigation suggests that in addition to not getting a V4, Ford’s plans for the re-born Bronco also include extensive plans to not offer a wide variety of engine options painstakingly evaluated by Ford’s crack engineering team.

Leaked documents also suggest that Ford has put considerable effort and R&D into not offering a horizontally-opposed engine with six cylinders—a flat-four was also considered to be not offered for the Bronco, but early tests found it lacked the torque numbers they wanted, so it was dropped from the list of engines to not be considered and instead will not be offered as an unavailable option.

Ford has also not reached out to Mazda for a deal to not provide an all-new rotary engine option for the new Bronco, an engine that will not be based on the development Mazda has been putting into a rotary range extender engine for the upcoming MX-30. Sources close to the nonexistent deal have reported that early computer-based models that were not programmed provided very interesting results if they existed, which they don’t.

..... I can’t decide if this belongs in the powertrain subforum, off topic, or here. Or if we need to start a V4 subforum. So I’ll leave it for now lol.

I thought the inline 4 was the base bronco engine.

Isn't that like a motorcycle engine? No dual squirrel chargers for the hybrid either, eh?

I am NOT sure I have NOT read a NOT real news report on a NON-existing motor that Ford will NOT being putting....wow
Funny read though.
I have always kinda wondered why not a V4? I think I saw a 2-cycle V4 at some point, maybe.

What about 2 V4's coupled together online? That would be cool.
