2021 Ford Bronco Technical Specs: Horsepower and Torque


Ford has released the technical specifications for the two- and four-door 2021 Ford Bronco horsepower and torque.

SAE horsepower 300* (275 regular fuel) 330* (315 regular fuel)
SAE torque 325* (315 regular fuel) 415* (410 regular fuel)


*Horsepower and torque ratings based on premium fuel per SAE J1349 standard. Horsepower and torque are independent attributes and may not be achieved simultaneously.



  1. Modern engines can adapt to a lower grade fuel like 87 even if they are tuned for 91. Either will hurt it but the 91 will get you better performance (as seen in the spec sheet)

    1. You’re dumb. The octane rate is not for better performance. The higher the octane, the more heat it can withstand before self detonating, causing knock, or other kinds of engine damage. 91 is recommended for turbo and high compression engines

      1. You mean if will take more heat input to ignite? Almost like it is allowing an engine to compress the gas more (which adds heat) before it sparks and creates power? Sounds like it is in fact for performance if the engine can adjust timing for it.

        Don’t call people dumb if you don’t have a clue bud.

      2. No you’re wrong, the higher the octane the more spark you can run therefore you get better performance. The engines have knock sensors, therefore they can compensate for lower octane fuel when you have lower octane fuel you get that nation that that nation will cause the knock sensors to retard spark. Therefore retarding spark equals less performance. And it works just the opposite for high-octane fuel. The higher the acting the more spark you can run therefore better fuel economy and better performance.

        1. From a technical standpoint, octane slows combustion. This is why you can advance spark, getting more horsepower. It’s purely for performance. The engine computer detects knock and retards ignition with lower octane fuel.

  2. I can’t ell the difference between 415 and 406 in my Mustang GT, so I typically put in regular. My Honda Si on the other hand, the difference between 205 and 190 I can (think) I can feel and I use premium in it.

  3. I’ve been waiting for these official specs for so long! Very glad I went with the 2.3L, PLENTY of power and will still be better on gas. Thanks Ford!

  4. I had the 2.7L in an Edge Sport. I would notice a difference between regular and premium above 4000 rpm, not so much in the seat of my pants but it would spin to redline a hair quicker and was a bit smoother in doing so. I also got slightly better fuel mileage with premium. You’ll probably never notice a difference if you don’t drive it hard.

  5. Higher Octane slows combustion which allows the ECU to advance timing and even run more boost in turbo applications.

  6. Input: I used 87 in my Cherokee for the first three years. I tried premium once or twice and didn’t notice a difference. Then I started heard knocking on occasion. So I switched to 89 for the past two years. Haven’t heard any knocking since. Improved my MPG by a mile. And it seems the performance is a little better now that the engine is older. Glad I didn’t need to start off with premium. Is premium recommended with the 2.7? I haven’t looked.

  7. Great specs. Ordered the 2.7. Will gladly pay for premium. The Badlands is not a grocery store commuter car.
