How to know it is a slow news day...
That would be a bummer. We have not had one at any of the 5 Ford stores I work for, but man, the 2.7 has been bullet proof. Hope its a quick fix in production.Well, this is interesting...
Ford Bronco Engines Failing With Under 10K Miles On The Clock: https://carbuzz.com/news/ford-bronco-engines-failing-with-under-10k-miles-on-the-clock
"... A thread concerning the 310-hp 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 Ecoboost powertrain blowing up first appeared on December 29, 2021. One blown engine is not a cause for concern, as there could be various reasons. But as of April 22, there are reports from 46 different Bronco owners, all complaining about the same engine.
The Bronco6G forum now has a comprehensive list of failures, including the average mileage at which the engines fail. Rather worryingly, most of the problems are related to dropping a valve, which appears to happen at less than 10,000 miles...."

Countered by the fact that more people will flock to the interwebs to complain about something than to do anything else.The thread on Bronco6G that has been trying to track the problem for some time now. https://www.bronco6g.com/forum/threads/2-7l-blown-engine-fail-list-46-so-far-april-22-update.31951/ It appears to be mostly associated with early builds in certain date ranges. There hasn't been any of the newer (post Aug, although 1 in Oct) engine builds that have had the problem. Not everyone with a blown motor will post their info there so there's undoubtedly more out there. They continue to pop up though because many people aren't racking up miles on theirs quickly (or they were stuck waiting on chips, don't think all of the MY21's have even been delivered yet).
Exactly - same thing would happen with all those 70 series Landcruisers people want Toyota to build until they saw the price tag and realized what a 130hp 6000 lb vehicle drove like.So true. I heard for years from customers how bad they wanted diesel in the F-150, "I would be the first to buy one" Ford listened, nobody bought.
I think a lot of people wanted diesel F150s before gas and diesel engine efficiency and performance got as close as they have.Ford put a diesel in the F-150 becouse everyone wanted it, well we could not give them away. Dont expect anymore small diesels in the US.
This about sums up why I own an ecoboost. 4mpg difference on fuel that's a dollar a gallon less expensive in my neck of the woods, and an engine with a timing belt, DEF, and no chance I'm "deleting" anything with the epa the way they are these days.Well they charged a premium for a more complicated less capable engine that didnt get super spectacular mileage burning a more expensive fuel.
Interference engine with ten miles of timing belt (plus a belt on the back) was a big buzzkill for me before i knew anything else about it.
And sign me up for a 70 series.
The problem was that Ford’s diesel was half assed. The Duramax and 3rd gen EcoD are better in basically every way. cheaper, more powerful, better mpg’s, lighter(more payload) etc.Ford put a diesel in the F-150 becouse everyone wanted it, well we could not give them away. Dont expect anymore small diesels in the US.
Load of crap. The 70 series is a totally different animal, with a totally different market to a F150.Exactly - same thing would happen with all those 70 series Landcruisers people want Toyota to build until they saw the price tag and realized what a 130hp 6000 lb vehicle drove like.
All Broncos have Led headlights.Anyone with a Big Bend or other non-LED headlight model care to elaborate on what the headlights are like? I have a Wildtrak on order, but frankly, may lower my standards somewhat given the cost/benefit ratio.
