The 2021 Ford Bronco Is Not Offered With A V8 But PaxPower Can Fix That

PaxPower knows Ford and knows that new Bronco buyers will want a V8. They’re ready.


  • The aftermarket for the Ford Bronco will be huge.

  • PaxPower is gearing up to offer two Ford V8 packages.

  • One option will feature 758 supercharged horsepower.


Although the all-new 2021 Ford Bronco was officially revealed just over a week ago, numerous aftermarket specialists have been preparing for its arrival for a long while. PaxPower, no stranger to Ford products, is one of them and they will offer a V8 conversion package for your new Ford Bronco.

We’ve waxed on about the rivalry between the new Ford Bronco and the Jeep Wrangler. Of the many “confrontational” issues between the two niche off-road trucks is powertrains. Jeep has teased a 392 6.4-litre V8 iteration, along with a PHEV, to go with a diesel entry and a few petrol options. The Ford Bronco, as we’ve learned, is destined for an electrified powertrain, to slot alongside the two EcoBoost engines. But there’s no V8 on the radar.

PaxPower will address that oversight with one of two variations of Ford’s own 5.0-litre Coyote V8. The first will be naturally-aspirated and produce 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. While that should be enough for most, PaxPower will optionally supercharge the V8 upping power output to 758 horsepower. Both V8s should be mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and all other related components for the V8 and transmission.

Is A Ford Bronco Hybrid Coming? UPDATE

Over and above the price of the selected new Ford Bronco, PaxPower will require some $30,000 for the 400 horsepower V8 conversion, and about $45,000 for the blown version. As well, the tuner will have plenty of other available suspension, performance and off-road upgrades for the Bronco.
