My credo
I need more sleep.
Apparently there was a tire company that leaked the new bronco's engine, which is going to be the 2.3L turbo in the Ranger.
I'm curious if Ford is going to repeat itself and use a shared chassis for the Bronco and Ranger, which would be neat for parts maybe 20 years in the future if they produce enough of them.
However I hope they include a V8 in the Bronco.
Granted this all could be a mistake by the tire company.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
It's already been confirmed that the new Bronco is going to be Ranger based, So the 2.3L makes sense. There supposed to be a v6 option, but it's unconfirmed as to which one.

It's pretty common in technical publications to plagiarize from something existing to populate a new publication. Seems fitting to me that they would pull the Ranger publication into the Bronco... then edit it's content.

The only thing I know for sure about the New Bronco... is absolutely nothing... and they like it that way.
