Oh it definitely wouldn't be exclusively diesel. At most they would release the diesel version before other versions.

doubtful. there would be a FAR lower take rate in the USA from the outset if it was diesel only at first...

Maybe natural gas? Ford is coming out with a propane F-150.

Just read an article stating that Ford had 275 patents awarded for EcoBoost mills and another 200 pending this year alone. Seems like EcoBoost is still being improved every year and it could be in the new Bronco.

A lot of patents were filed for electrification innovations too but I'm not sure how that would work itself into an engine.

TTAC believes at least one ecoboost engine will be available, likely the 2.7 V6. Diesel is almost guaranteed at some point as well. All Signs Point to Bronco and Here's Why

Two potential upgrade candidates include the 282 horsepower normally aspirated 3.7-liter V-6 and the 325 horsepower 2.7-liter Ecoboost V-6. Both engines are segment competitive and presently available in the F-150. Ford is certain to offer at least one Ecoboost in the Ranger, making the 3.7-liter V-6 the odd-engine out if four engines choices are too many.

Ford will offer its North American customers one diesel. It may not be available at launch, but GMís twins are available in diesel, as will be the next Wrangler. The leading diesel option from Fordís current product portfolio is the 350 lb-ft 3.2-liter unit offered in the North American Transit as well as the Ranger T6, but Ford may develop a more competitive alternative for torque-war-torn North America.

Offering in diesel first can nudge people to consider the option when they otherwise wouldn't have. The Ram EcoDiesel has something like a 20% take rate. It's not likely, but it is possible if they wanted to push the diesel more.

Not after VW shot diesel in the head for Americans.
