The 2021 Ford Bronco has some delivery issues. Will you get yours this year? Can you do anything to help get it sooner or even this year? I’ll cover what you can do and in this video we will also cover the new full and complete spec sheet. This means we will talk about the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo developing 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque with premium fuel. Also covered will be  the 2.7-liter EcoBoost six-cylinder engine, and how the twin-turbocharged V6 cranks out 330hp on premium or 315 hp on 87 octane, and 415 lb/ft torque on premium petrol  or 410 pound-feet of torque on regular or 87 Octane. Why are the specs so important? Well taking a 2.3l engine might get you your Bronco sooner and it will definitely save you money on options and gas. But is it worth it? While on the subject of engines, I will also cover the main differences between these 2 engine blocks to help you figure out if taking a 2.3l inline 4 cylinder is a good option for you. Even though it is not news, as with a little searching the spec sheet for the Bronco for months had revealed, crawl ratios will quickly be discussed. Covered will be the importance of advanced 4×4 if you will do some crawling.  Ford example, the seven-speed manual with a crawler gear, you get a 79.91:1 for standard 4×4 and 94.75:1 for the advanced 4×4 system. With a 10-speed automatic will get a less aggressive ratio of 57.19:1 or 67.80:1 with advanced 4×4. Also with the advanced 4×4 comes higher end beefier M210 with Spicer performance Trak electronic locker in the front (badlands and sasquatch) and Dana M220 rear axle. Possibly helping people pick which side of the 2 door vs 4 door fence to fall onto is the fact that fuel capacity is at 16.9 gallons for the 2 door and 20.8 gallons for the 4 door so that might help some decide which side of the fence has greener grass. This video also covers the base curb weight for the two-door Base with the2.3-liter EcoBoost and seven-speed manual which comes in at 4,286 pounds (1,944 kilograms) vs for four door coming in as much as an Explorer at 5117 lbs. I am sure this video has some great surprises for you and will help you pick the right Bronco.
