Default New Bronco details...
All-New Ford Bronco Could Be a Four-Door Hybrid, Report Claims | Automobile Magazine

How do people feel about a potential hybrid version? As long as that isn't the ONLY option, I'm OK with this?

One item in the article I did like is the mention of the removable hardtop. That is basic Bronco DNA, so nice to hear that will most likely be included.

it looks like they will be offering a 2.7 EB option as well.


they said they are doing a redesign of the troller and making it a 4 door and look less like a jeep.
all things i like. removable top would be cool, but my wife wants one and i dont want to be the guy that removes it and puts it back on for her. sunroof a ok lol.

A hybrid off roader would be excellent for off roading and for MPGs getting there.

Seriously, running electric drive off road (at lower speeds) will provide monumental torque, it's quiet and pollution free (not a bad thing). I love the idea - let's see how they execute it. Jeep will reportedly have a hybrid drive pretty soon.

My wife really wants the new Bronco ( gotta love it) in a two door version. I agree that a removable top is inherently in Bronco DNA. I daily drive a 91 Bronco but you can't have too many ponys in the corral, right?

To be expected, the hybrid. CAFE standards are pushing it. Heck they are talking about a hybrid f-150.

I'd bet good money that our 2023 Raptors have some form of Hybrid powertrain. Could be really cool if done right.

Go for the carbon gloves...the leather ones don't fit.

"Aluminum frame it will share with the new Ranger"...that'll be a first, at least for midsize truck/SUV. Something that light, and the power I've heard the 2.7L cranks out, oughta be a quick grocery getter. Trollers are pretty impressive offroad from what I've read too, not a bad baseline. I'd rather see 'em go more retro to Bronco roots than try to go head to head with a JK tho, if someone wants/needs a Jeep they are going to get a Jeep.
