  • Ford has announced official power figures for the 2021 Bronco, as spotted by the Bronco6G forum.

  • Ford now says that the 2.3L engine makes 300 hp and 325 pound-feet of torque, and that the 2.7L engine makes 330 hp and 415 pound-feet of torque.

  • Those are increases of 30 horsepower for the four-cylinder and 20 hp for the V-6 over the original estimates.

The 2021 Ford Bronco will be more powerful than Ford's initial estimates claimed. A new spec sheet reports official SAE-certified horsepower and torque figures that are higher by 20–30 horsepower and 5–15 pound-feet depending on engine.

The base turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-four, initially estimated to have 270 hp and 310 pound-feet, is rated at 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. The optional twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6, which had initial estimates of 310 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque, is rated at 330 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. The four-cylinder Bronco offers the choice of either a seven-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the V-6 model comes only with the automatic.

These numbers apply when running on premium fuel. Ford also provides slightly reduced SAE numbers that apply for when the Bronco is running on 87 octane regular fuel: 275 hp and 315 pound-feet for the 2.3L and 315 hp and 410 pound-feet for the 2.7L.
