Could all-terrain performance pair with hybrid efficiency? This is the question posed by critics as they examine the recent surge of Ford Bronco specs - with all eyes flitting across the tentative inclusion of an EcoBoost engine. Will the EV market be forever redefined?
The ROAD/SHOW team isn’t certain. As they stare at the collection of Bronco details - which range from a 2.7L turbocharged V6 to a sport-tuned suspension - they find themselves wondering how Ford could combine its classic SUV with enhanced economy. The necessary upgrades would be extensive, requiring a full chassis tweak and the implementation of:
Automatic Start-Stop Technology.
Smart Gauge Monitoring.
.... and more.
Each of these features would have to be fused to the Bronco’s uni-body frame - and this could force Ford to replace its anticipated high-grade (heavy) steel with more economical aluminum. The entire drivetrain would have to be lightened and improved.
ROAD/SHOW admits that this is possible - but they remain unconvinced that the Big Blue Oval will trade its coveted AWD power for lithium-ion savings. This rumor, they say, is unlikely to become a reality.
