I was wondering the same. Base motor is the same as the Explorer and thatís rated for somewhere around 5k and that is also the same motor in the Ranger that is rated around 7k. Looks like you can step up and get the 2.7 eco and probably have even more tow capacity

ST explorer is 5600 pounds now, base explorer is 5000 (I think). I can tow my X2 with the ST. I did a test drive pulling the boat, and I thought it did better than my 5.0L f150, both power and stopping. It wasn't windy and it was a short drive, so I couldn't really evaluate side stability. I'm sure my truck wins there, but I was amazed at how well the explorer did. Not sure if they'll give the bronco the 3.0 EB or not and what the wheel base will be.

Some really cool options.

Lockers front and rear
Bilstein shocks
Front sway bar disconnect

One of the videos mentioned 3500lb for both 2 and 4 door. But I'd take that with a grain of salt.. though it may not be far off of this thing has some more off road oriented suspension, and looks to be pretty short over all.

Why no V8 option?.... That's American...

Looks cool but I thought they would launch it in a full size, versus what looks more like the Bronco II size built off the Ranger chassis. Ford entry to compete in the Jeep Wrangler segment?

Now if only Toyota would do another real Land Cruiser

Agreed, would love to see an FJ40 reboot

Pretty sure this was a Jeep killer.


Now you build a new excursion, I will buy that also. Lol

Specification for towing on their website shows 3500# for all models, all configurations. I suspect specs are still in flux. Seems low
