Imagine if you will......
Ford Planning meeting.
Planning executive while wringing hands, "We have approximately 4 times the number of buyers for a 21 than can possibly be served. What do we do? "
"Hey" says one guy, "We can leak a rumor about Heritage editions and some will hold off till 22 and then it won't be our fault"
"Great idea" says another dude. "How about we tell them they can get better colors in 22?"
A third guys mutters "Raptor maybe".
"Go with it!" says the boss.
Time does by......
Guy number 1 says "Boss, we still have 3 times as many people clamoring for 21's as we can possibly make. What do we do?"
The boss answers "Go leak some slightly crappy MPG figures with a bunch of errors. That will hold off a few more buyers. Later we can show the real, slightly better, numbers and get em back for 22"
You forgot the "release that green gas can" step.

17mpg is better than the 12mpg I get in my Tundra now. My buddy just bout a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited with the 2.0l turbo 4 cylinder. It takes off and rides pretty good, or at least it did until he broke the rear axle on Saturday with less than 2,000 miles on the odometer. I sure hope the Bronco is built with better parts than Jeep.

Can anyone tell me why going with 2.3L ? I am glad I went with the 2.7L, I am sure the crappy performance on the 4 Cyl will be noticeable more than the $1600 to upgrade the engine.

Based on my current driving conditions and current price of fuel in Minneapolis this is some math I have put together ... not really sure how I feel about it being a projected 17mpg vehicle

16000 miles per year and gas at 2.65

17mpg - $2,494.12 annually = 47.96 weekly
19mpg - $2,231.58 annually = $42.91 weekly
21mpg - $2,019.05 annually = $38.83 weekly
23mpg - $1,843.48 annually = $35.45 weekly
25mpg - $1,696.00 annually = $32.62 weekly
27mpg - $1,570.37 annually = $30.20 weekly
29mpg - $1,462.07 annually = $28.12 weekly
31mpg - $1,367.74 annually = $26.30 weekly
33mpg - $1,284.85 annually = $24.71 weekly
35mpg - $1,211.43 annually = $23.30 weekly
37mpg - $1,145.95 annually = $22.04 weekly
39mpg - $1,087.18 annually = $20.91 weekly
Now do the math with premium. These are turbo engines after all.

It's been my experiance that I get about 2 miles a gal. less then the offical FORD milage so that puts it right in line with my 2016 ram pickup. I can live with that.

Exactly what I thought, 2-3 MPG hit each for the 2.7L or Sasquatch. A little surprised the BD robs 4 MPG off the 2.3L HWY number though. Sheesh. I may just keep the OEM tires on my BB.
This is most likely due to the gearing of the BD. 4.46 vs 3.73

Yes, I'm sure 300hp is crappy.

What does a dyno plot where they stepped on the gas after 2000rpm have to do with anything?

Talk to me a bit about the relationship between power production and torque converter slip.
Who praise did you mean to reply to, I for one understand what’s happening. The torque/power curve on the 5.0L is not showing any huge increase half way through the range as you claim - it’s quite linear as I explained.

Because I wanted the crappy 7MT, so it looks like I only get crappy 300 HP.

Poor me.
