We can't wait to see Hennessey work its magic on the new Bronco.
We're now just a few weeks away from the much-anticipated world debut of the 2021 Ford Bronco. The covers will officially come off on July 13, but Hennessey Performance is already announcing its plans to take the reborn off-roader to new extremes.
When the 2021 Ford Bronco goes on sale, the Texas tuner will offer a range of aftermarket accessories that improve its performance and off-road capability. Among these upgrades will include a high-flow air induction system, intercooler system, stainless steel exhaust, larger off-road tires and wheels, and a suspension kit. Don't be surprised if Hennessey gives the new Bronco a massive power boost, either. After all, the tuner already offers 750-hp versions of the Ford F-150 and Ford F-150 Raptor.
Hennessey hasn't announced availability for these upgrades, but we could be waiting a while as a dealer recently claimed deliveries for the Ford Bronco won't start until April 2021 after the order books allegedly open in December. The same dealer claims the smaller Ford Bronco Sport will arrive earlier, with orders allegedly starting in July and customer deliveries beginning this November, but we'll have to wait until the reveal next month for official confirmation from Ford.
Engine options haven't been confirmed for the Ford Bronco yet, but the most recent rumors suggest it will be offered with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder, 2.7-liter V6, and 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine.
The base model will share the same 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine as the Ford Ranger, which produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Hennessey already offers a performance upgrade for the Ford Ranger that increases the 2.3-liter four-cylinder unit to 360 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque, so there's a good chance this upgrade will also be offered for the entry-level Bronco.
In the Ford F-150, the 2.7-liter unit produces 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, while the 3.0-liter version produces up to 400 hp and 415 lb-ft in the Ford Explorer ST. We can't wait to see Hennessey work its magic on the Ford Bronco and transform it into a high-performance off-roader.
