This turn assist and turn lockup is something I’m not familiar with can anyone explain?
so, the goal is that on tight trails to make a sharp 90, especially in a truck larger than a CJ-5, that you lock up the inside rear tire and only apply power to the other three, this lets you make the turn rotating on that tire, or near enough, rather than a full turn radius turn. lets larger stuff go onto tighter trails.

for an older truck, like mine, you install two parking brakes, one for each rear wheel to lock only one up as needed, and twin stick the t-case, bascially turn your truck into FWD with both rear wheels in neutral.

I was just about to reply maybe the new Bronco will have R/L rear brakes.
A manual transmission with 4 pedals! Sign me up!

I don't think it'll have that. someone pointed out one of the dash buttons, so it will likely do it automatically when you have the system button 'on' and you turn the wheel to full lock, left or right.

At about 32 seconds in on the long video can anyone hear what engine that is by the exhaust note? I know it’s a stretch

And while I'm at it... around the 24-25 second mark, while making a turn the driver's side tire locks up. Is that just a standard limited slip? Please excuse my stupidity at this point in time. Almost makes it look like FWD, just stood out to me.
4x4 plowing at lock

That doesn't sound like a turbo 6.... more 4-banger

Sounds like the 2.7 to me. I've listened to that clip probably 30 times with headphones. I'm pretty sure that's not the 2.3.

Actually looking at the footage and realizing what you were talking about it looks like a handbrake turn.
it makes sense though with that button we couldn't ascertain the pupose of is to allow this, or to do it automagically. my current theory is that with that system turned on, it'll lock the inside rear tire when you turn the wheel full lock.

I'm at the office today so I haven't been messing around much here. I know that pretty much everything Jeep has something for, Ford has something new for Bronco. This system is pretty rad. I had to handbrake turn once last weekend on a trail and my Wrangler DOES NOT like it.

Maybe.... Just maybe your Wrangler knows you're fantasizing about Bronco's all day and it's just not liking you right now... Not the handbrake turning... Just a theory of course. 🙄

You cud also do this with twin park brakes and just leave the locker open ...?
