2016 Ford SVT Bronco

if only.......



"...three different engine options from a base 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 that pumps out 420 hp to an optional 4.9-liter Powerstroke V-6 diesel engine that is based off the revised 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel..." "...As if that wasn’t enough, we’re hearing that there is a good possibility that we’ll see the 5.8-liter supercharged V-8 engine out of the Mustang Shelby GT500, make its way into the SVT Bronco. With 662 hp and 631 lb-ft of torque..."

"Transmission choices are either a 6R140 6-speed automatic transmission or a ZF-6 speed manual transmission in case you like to row your own while running down the highway. The 2016 Ford SVT Bronco also features a Dana 60 front differential as well as a Sterling 10.25-inch rear differential with 4.10 gears. You might be wondering why it is that the Bronco has six lug wheels if it clearly has 1-ton running gear but believe it or not, these axles are closer to a full floating competition axle rather than a standard 1-ton axle. The wheel studs on this wild steed are massive 5/8-inch studs to hold up to serious off-road abuse. "

Would be great to see that on the roads, and trails, the aftermarket guys will love it! I think ford needs this, seeing as how they have turned all of their SUVs into softroader grocery wagons.

Re: 2016 Ford SVT Bronco

The best clue that it isn't real is the option of a 6 speed manual transmission. Pure fantasy!

I'm so old I can remember when you could buy a 1/2 ton pickup with a stickshift!

Re: 2016 Ford SVT Bronco

What's sad is that there is a ZF 6 speed, but I don't think it's in any Ford vehicle. No manual transmission in any SuperDuty trucks as far as I know.

Re: 2016 Ford SVT Bronco

You can still get a manual transmission in the F650/750!

Sure, that way I can get a Cummins diesel too. That would be an interesting SMB conversion.

Re: 2016 Ford SVT Bronco


Nice. My only concern is price, it seems like $40k or more is the going "acceptable" price for a decent truck these days.

Judging by the success of the Raptor, I think it'd do well.
