Specifications of Ford Bronco VI Two-door 2.3 EcoBoost (270 HP) 4x4

General characteristics of Ford Bronco VI Two-door 2.3 EcoBoost (270 HP) 4x4

The Bronco is all about off-road performance, and its overall dimensions play a massive role in its ability to conquer even the most challenging obstacles. One of the key ingredients is a short wheelbase: the two-door features a wheelbase of only 100.4 inches, while 4-door Broncos are much longer with a wheelbase of 116.1 inches. Overall length is measured at 173.7 inches for two-door models (174.8 inches for the Badlands trim) and 189.4 inches for the four-door (the Badlands measures at 190.5 inches). The height of the Bronco ranges from 71.9 inches for the two-door base model all the way up to 75.3 inches for the four-door Wildtrak. The available roof rack adds another 3.6 inches to the two-door and 3.4 inches to the four-door. Width ranges from 75.9 inches for the base and Big Bend models up to 79.3 inches for the Wildtrak.

But if you're going to challenge the Wrangler, then it's the off-road dimensions that matter most. To this end, the best-case scenario sees approach/breakover/departure angles of 43.2/29/37.2 degrees for two-door models with the Sasquatch Package, while four-door derivatives boast a weaker 26.3-degree breakover and 37-degree departure angle. Base models are less adept but still impressive at 35.5/21/1/29.8 degrees in two-door form and 35.5/20/29.7 degrees in four-door format. With the Sasquatch Package's extra clearance of up to 11.6 inches, the Bronco can ford 33.5 inches of water.

As for curb weight, in any configuration, the Bronco is a heavy machine, but that's testament to its hardy construction. At the lower end of the spectrum, a 4,319-pound base weight accompanies the two-door with the 2.3L motor and manual gearbox, while the auto adds 20 lbs. The 2.7L/automatic gearbox combination weighs in at 4,491 lbs. Four-door models add 170-180 lbs. The heaviest configuration weighs in at 4,661 lbs.

The stylish exterior design of the new Ford Bronco wouldn't be complete without a range of equally exciting colors, and the good news is that Ford has delivered 11 stellar ones. The base model is available in Shadow Black, Oxford White, Antimatter Blue, Iconic Silver, Carbonized Gray, Velocity Blue, and Rapid Red ($295). The Big Bend trim adds Cactus Gray, Area 51, and Race Red. The Black Diamond trim features the awesome Cyber Orange tri-coat for an additional $595, and the First Edition is available with Lightning Blue as one of its limited five-color palette. With so many trims and color options available, the Bronco offers nearly endless possibilities for personalization.

You won't find any naturally-aspirated options here like you do in the Wrangler. Ford offers the 2021 Bronco with two engine options, starting with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the Broncos four-wheel-drive system via a seven-speed manual transmission with a low-range crawler-gear ratio of 94.75:1 or an optional 10-speed automatic box. If you're after more power, the 2.7-liter turbo V6 engine offers 310 hp and a chunky 400 lb-ft. This larger motor is exclusively paired to the 10-speed automatic. The standard 4WD system uses a two-speed electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer case, and both two and four-door cars are offered with an available advanced 4x4 system that features a two-speed electromechanical transfer case with auto-engaging 2H or 4H. Electronic locking differentials are an optional extra.

We only had a chance to experience the 2.7-liter EcoBoost out on the road, though the 2.3-liter felt more than adequate for off-road duties. Compared to the Jeep Wrangler with the Pentastar V6, EcoDiesel V6, or turbocharged four-cylinder, the V6-powered Bronco delivers much more confident acceleration. It requires far less planning to overtake slower traffic, and the engine seems less stressed at higher speeds. We felt some less-than-smooth shifts from Ford's 10-speed automatic, it wasn't enough to ruin the driving experience. Jeep's eight-speed automatic still excels with seamless shifts that are smoother than we experienced in the Bronco.

According to the EPA, the Bronco's gas mileage figures range from acceptable to atrocious. The most fuel-efficient model is the 2.3-liter base model that delivers 20/22/21 mpg on the city/highway/combined cycles in both automatic and manual configuration. The automatic 2.7-liter will return 18/20/19 mpg, and the 2.3-liter Black Diamond/Sasquatch will manage 18/18/18 mpg, but the worst combination is the 2.3-liter Badlands model with the manual, attaining pretty thirsty fuel economy figures of 16/18/17 mpg. Only the Wrangler Rubicon 392 performs worse, and Jeep has a hybrid variant that knocks the socks off the Ford in this regard.

Two different fuel tanks are available, with two-door models getting a 16.9-gallon capacity while the four-door boasts 20.8 gallons.

As with the exterior, the interior of the 2021 Ford Bronco takes on a rugged yet modern appearance and looks like it will stand up to even the most hardcore overlanding trips. The chunky dashboard neatly houses all significant controls, and the overall look seamlessly blends in with the overarching theme of beefy dimensions and brawny looks. Ford offers the Bronco with off-road friendly features such as rubberized floors, marine-grade vinyl seats and even includes integrated drainage ducts for when that river crossing is deeper than you expected. The new Bronco also tips its hat to the original with its retro LCD instrument panel, but there's nothing old school about the optional 12-inch infotainment display. Sure, it's no Range Rover, but we think Ford nailed the look and feel of the Bronco's interior; it perfectly matches the look and attitude of the rest of the car.
