I'm hoping they can avoid adding too much weight over a JL and keep the 2 door down to just over 4000. If the whole body is aluminum rather than just certain panels that should be doable.Zero chance it's 3500lbs. That's less than the mustang. And damn near as light as my focus st. I would say 4200-4700ish depending on 2dr vs 4dr
Yeah, my Fusion is right there (minus spare, jack and only 1/4 tank).........I'm hoping they can avoid adding too much weight over a JL and keep the 2 door down to just over 4000. If the whole body is aluminum rather than just certain panels that should be doable.
Agreed it's very unlikely to be below 4k though.
Imagine once you do tune it2.0L JL owner here, haven't had much experience in the rocks but I've heard very little complaints in the JL Forums from 2.0L owners that beat their rig hard. The eTorque system (good ol' mild hybrid) works wonders on the road. Gets up to 80 on the highway way too fast for a Jeep, haven't even tuned it.
You broke up while driving through the woods?Off topic, but ages ago, went to a bonfire in the woods with friends with my ex and her golf (1.8t, st1 tune with drop in filter)
Didn't realize it was deep in the woods, trails and small ruts, but we went and until she busted the oil pan after we broke up, car was fine despite being us following our friend who was driving fast ahead of us, sucking in dirt
Yeah, should be fine
Gives me hope as I live in the mountains of UtahSo, we are now in out 7th year with the 3.5 EB in our f150. We are on tight trails at high altitude maybe 10 times a year.
Most of those trips find us in low range climbing fields of baby heads, loose rock, shelves etc, rear axle locked for at least part of the time. Carrying camping gear, fishing gear, people etc.
Turbo lag just never comes into play for us when geared down.
For those 1% rock crawlers it might I suppose. Maybe an electric supercharger like Land Rover is playing with would be a nice upgrade on the 2.7 for those folks. But the 2.7 engine gives huge torque at low rpms in native form.
Can't wait! It might be the perfect engine in this thing, especially if the Bronco comes in around 3500 pounds!
