Ford isn’t going to do shit and why should they? The 2.7L twin turbo is plenty powerful at an affordable price. I can see them maybe dropping in the 3.5 high output some day in a “raptor” model bronco and jeep will never be able to compete with that motor even with their hemi.

If you want an NA v8 stick shift then buy a Shelby GT350. That’s my plan to satisfy my v8/manual itch. When I drive a stick I want to move through those gears and drive the shit out of it, not crawl in 1 gear. When I rev a V8 I want to be screaming down the highway, not spinning tires off road.... but that’s just me.

I honestly get an image of Jeep wrapped around electrical poles, traffic lights, off in a ditch and/or on its side/roof. Not knocking anything other than it is probably WAY too much power for something with the higher center of gravity and short (2door) to short-ish (4door) wheelbase.

Yeah, it does sound cool and I can see it being awesome to power thru some things on a trail...but the average driver...eek
No way they are going to put that in the 2 door. It will be a 4 door only option if it even makes it to production.
