2021 Ford Bronco will sound like this

There will be a turbocharged V6 on board, if our ears don’t confuse us.


We are officially just two weeks away from seeing the 2021 Ford Bronco in all its retro, off-road and rugged glory. Before that, Ford went ahead and sent us a new teaser via Instagram.

On Monday, the Ford Bronco’s official Instagram page shared a point-of-view video dealing with noise from the Bronco. Specifically, the noises coming from under the hood. The automaker did not share any additional information other than the video, but it basically confirms that Ford will offer a turbocharged V6. That tone is clearly reminiscent of the automaker’s line of EcoBoost V6 engines.

What kind of displacement the Bronco will boast about, we don’t know. Today, the Blue Oval makes a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V6 and a 2.7-liter turbo V6 under the EcoBoost brand. The latter is the most likely candidate.

In addition to the turbocharged V6, rumors have indicated that Ford’s 2.3-liter turbo-four engine is the Bronco’s base mill. I should share the engine with the Ford Ranger. After all, the Bronco supposedly shares the Ranger’s architecture. A seven-speed manual transmission can also be a possibility with a gear dedicated to dragging rocks at low speed.

We have the feeling that Ford will continue to give some teasers in the coming weeks, but the Bronco reveal day of July 13 will come before we know it.
