Since you're planning on retaining for several years - what are you planning on doing to keep the engine in tip top shape?
Just changing the oil and not revving to much in the upper RPMs.

If the Bronco comes with regular oil, I’ll change after breaking in to a good synthetic. These days, not much else needs to be done and the 2.7 seems to be a well built beast in other applications from Ford.

Do you have other suggestions for engine life? If so, please share.

I say wait for crash tests.
Yeah, I’m curious with the Sas. I know they remove a portion of the crash bar to fit the 35’s. Most likely Ford will highlight the regular trims results.

Nice necro.

Better get it while the getting is good. Carvana was just downgraded, and several are calling a nearby top in the used car market.

Honestly - I don't. This is a pretty new foray into long term vehicle care I'm embarking on. The only other thing I've learned (through this forum) is that a turbo runs hotter, so a higher viscosity oil might work better (5w-30 vs 5w-20)

Be careful what you “learn from forums.” Opinions about oil and engine longevity are often deep rooted in superstition and logical fallacy.

Not commenting on the viscosity claim you’ve summarized here specifically.
