Ford Bronco Making More Power Than Previously Announced

Bronco bucks harder than we expected

  • Leaked spec sheet shows more power on premium gas

  • Bronco continues to face delays and slowdowns


Once they finally begin to arrive at dealers, the all-new Ford Bronco’s two engines will make more power than previously announced. As long as you’re willing to use the good stuff at your local filling station.

When the Ford Bronco was first revealed, models equipped with the 2.3L EcoBoost four were expected to make 275 hp and 315 lb-ft, while those powered by the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 were expected to make 315 and 410. Now, according to a new spec sheet leaked by Bronco6G.com, the figures have improved in the interim months.

The numbers above are valid, as it turns out, if you’re putting regular (87) octane gasoline into the tank of the Ford Bronco. If you want more power, there’s a quick and easy way to get it, and that’s using premium fuel (93 octane). Fill the Bronco with High Test and it will make 300 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque for the four-cylinder and 330 hp with 415 lb-ft for the V6. Not insignificant differences. And while Ford doesn’t specify, most vehicles that have a 87/93 rating curve will add smaller amounts of power using 89 and 91 octane, so just because the good stuff isn’t offered where you are doesn’t mean you miss out.

These extra numbers might help soothe the production delays that continue to affect the Bronco, which is currently looking at idled production the weeks of May 17 and 24 as part of the ongoing semiconductor shortages.
