2021 Ford Bronco Horsepower, Torque Ratings Revealed

Sponsored

By now, we know just about everything there is to know about the 2021 Ford Bronco, save for final power numbers and EPA fuel economy ratings. However, Bronco Nation recently shared the former, and they certainly represent good news, as both 2021 Ford Bronco horsepower and torque ratings are higher than FoMoCo’s projected outputs released back when the Bronco was revealed last summer.

2021 Ford Bronco Horsepower and Torque Ratings
Ford 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 Ford 2.7L EcoBoost V6
Standard 87 Octane Horsepower 275 315
Standard 87 Octane Torque (pound-feet) 315 410
Premium 93 Octane Horsepower 300 330
Premium 93 Octane Torque (pound-feet) 325 415

Final 2021 Ford Bronco horsepower and torque ratings come in at 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque on premium 93 octane fuel for the 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 (275 horsepower and 315 pound-feet on regular 87 octane fuel), beating out the original estimates of 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.

Meanwhile, the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 is rated to produce 330 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque on premium gas (315 horsepower and 410 pound-feet on regular), besting the projected ratings of 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

Those holding a Ford Bronco reservation or order will undoubtedly be pleased to learn that their vehicles will be a bit more powerful than originally expected, though it seems that at least a portion of them will be waiting longer to take delivery of those vehicles. As we reported last week, the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant – where the Bronco and Ford Ranger are built – will close temporarily the weeks of May 17th and May 24th as a result of the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage.

However, Ford has said that the idling of the Michigan plant will not affect the Bronco’s launch, which is still slated to begin this summer. As we’ve previously reported, Job 1 2021 Ford Bronco production is already underway at the Ford Michigan Assembly Plant, but Ford doesn’t expect to be able to fully ramp up production until August.

We’ll have much more on the 2021 Bronco to share soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and 24/7 Ford news coverage.

    Horsepower figures between the two mills aren’t too far apart, but the V6 has a clear torque advantage.

      Yes, we own the Edge ST version of the V6 Ecoboost and having tested both the I4 and the V6 versions of the Edge, the part throttle response / torque is where you see the biggest difference in normal driving.

      At full throttle the 4 is pretty good but it suffers at part throttle compared to the V6. The I4 needs revs and boost to make it happen, which gives it more of an all or nothing response. Comparatively, the V6 is never caught off guard, you get smooth torque and swift response across the board.

    Any word yet on the Warthog engine choice(s)? With the Ranger Raptor getting the 3.0L EB it would seem likely that the Bronco Warthog could share the same powertrain, no?

    Is this vehicle larger than a Bronco Sport? My 2012 Ford Escape is almost the same size as a Bronco Sport. I need a vehicle with high roof clearance at the rear gate.

      Yes, the Sport is a total different platform, based more along the lines of the Escape. The regular Bronco is larger.

    Disappointed that Ford didn’t deliver better towing numbers for the 2.7l EB Bronco. Almost half of the 2.3lEB Ranger. Always thought Ford was being disingenuous with their responses about a Ranger Raptor for the US when they reintroduced the Ranger. I thought the 2.7 was a no-brainer, but like the idea if the 3.0 even more. I have a 07 Sport-trac with the 4.6l V8, and it’s numbers are almost matched by the 2.3! The V8 is 293hp and 320 lb-ft. But I suspect the 3.0 equipped Ranger Raptor will deliver 425hp, putting it in F150 Raptor neighborhood. Exciting!
