22.7 is much higher than I expect on 4dr badlands with Sasquatch. If it gets that i'll be really happy. I assume this was with 33's and not Sasquatch? So get a little more tire weight and lower gearing probably 1-2 mpg off, Also this was 2 door so probably another 1mpg?

My Raptor gets 18.1 and my Chevy SS with V8 and manual gets 19.1 so seems bronco will be in that area as well.

Am I the only person who is bothered by the fact that we have not seen a good representation of the instrument cluster on a Base, BB, or BD. All of the ones I have seen are from BL, WT, or OBX which all have the "high-level instrument cluster". It's one of those things where I really love how this looks and how it is almost all digital; but when I get my BB is it going to be a shitty tiny screen with a shittier display? Ford gives no information on their site as to what the instrument cluster will be like.

Recently found this picture in a thread; stated that it was from a 2 door badlands, saw the 96 miles in a quarter tank
Made some calculations and achieved: 22.7 MPG

2 door tank size = 16.9
96 miles per quarter tank = 384miles / tank
384/16.9 = 22.7

just a speculation, don’t quote me but pretty decent mpg for a badlands if I’m correct
Any thoughts?

This thing has all the aerodynamics of a brick....20MPG highway is my guess....at 65 mph-ish. Start cruising at 80 and those turbos will increase fuel demand.

That’s what I think will get people. My wrangler gets great mileage at 65 mph, around 20. Driving out to Parker, it’s 75 and traffic goes 85. I did that the whole way and it dropped down to 16

IIRC thinking back to the engineering class I flunked out of, this is an application of the inverse square law. An extra 5 mph requires significantly more force and therefore fuel. Especially at higher speeds and less aerodynamic vehicles.

It has been confirmed that it is for the badlands overland,
So we can conclude that a Bronco Badlands 4 door with 35 inch tires gets 18.5 MPG

I absolutely intend on driving slow in my Bronco
If I wanted to go fast, I would have a kia stinger by now. I did want that but then Bronco was announced and turned my whole thinking around completely

I was under the impression the dash displays were the same ;(

Incorrect, it's 2 door and 4 door respectively. Engine choice does not affect gas tank size whatsoever.
This is where I'm torn between 2 and 4 doors, tank size. I don't worry about MPG as much driving range. I have a 97 F250 Powerstroke that get 15MPG but has 36 gallons of fuel available. I can drive 500 miles comfortably.
16 gal tank and 18MPG means 250 and looking for gas. 20 gal tank is 300 and looking for gas.

dash looks the same, another B&P discrepancy?> Maybe high level is what the content is as opposed to the actual size/layout.

Confirmed:
4 door badlands Overland
tire size 35” MT BFG KM3

Recently found this picture in a thread; stated that it was from a badlands, saw the 96 miles in a quarter tank.

Edit:
4 door
Tank size 20.8
96 miles per quarter tank
384miles/tank
384/96= 18.5 MPG

just a speculation, don’t quote me but pretty decent mpg for a badlands if I’m correct
Any thoughts?
18.5 with 35's is pretty good still.
