Cummins swapped Bronco in action

Just wanted to share this short clip of a 1985 Bronco that's got a Cummings engine swap. It sounds incredible and makes me wonder if there would be any interest in a high displacement diesel for the new Bronco. Could be difficult with the growing emission standards.

Doubt we'd go past a V6 and definitely not a V12 with the amount of black smoke that thing was spewing. Maybe I'm not a big enough enthusiast, but sometimes modes like these makes me wonder why they would do that to a perfectly good Bronco.

Cummins swaps in Bronco's are extremely popular. Lets face it, Cummins and LS swaps are popular in every enthusiast sector. Unless the Ranger gets one, Its unlikely the Bronco will see it. I believe the Bronco will have 2 maybe 3 engine options. Similar to its history and Jeep.

With the direction the truck segment is heading in, I would agree that a V8 option is unlikely but that's not to say it isn't possible. I think they could get some pretty fantastic specs from the 2.7l twin turbocharged Ecoboost. Do we think that they'll actually put a diesel in this truck? I suppose that's still viable for UK consumers.

If they do end up offering a variety of engine options, than its more than likely that one of them will be a diesel. But as you've said that might be restricted to markets outside of North America. What are the odds we'll see the 3.5-liter V-6 from the F150 Raptor offered here.

That would be ideal, the Raptor's engine inside another vehicle that should be able to go off road as well. Maybe as a very expensive limited edition model for those who are interested because I can't see Ford willing to just offload that V-6 in large quantities.

I do think that if Ford plans on using the Raptor engine in the Bronco that it'll be in a full blown Raptor variant. Though with our early estimations of a base price, I do have some concerns on what that top end trim would cost. Probably +$50K?

There should be some potential for it to perform better than the F-150 Raptor on regular road doing 0-60, 1/4 mile runs and so on. It would be a great alternative to the F-150's more off road appeal.

I would imagine that it'll probably be priced similarly to that off the F150 Raptor, so yeah id say $50k is reasonable ask. And the F150 Raptor already does the 0-60 sprint in 5 seconds, so I don't know how much faster you need to go in a truck.

I do believe the Raptor Bronco (if ever made) will offer the highest powered engine and only be exclusive to that trim. Just like the early Raptor's had with 6.2L gas engine. I would love to see the fullsize 3.5 ecoboost in it but my bet would be on the biggest ecoboost offered in the Bronco with a specific factory tune offering about 50-100 more hp. Just my guess.

In terms of pricing, absolutely the top level trim will reach $50k considering what Rubicon's fetch. But I think Ford should really perform their due diligence and determine whether a new, unproven Bronco can compete with a Rubicon, price wise. Rubicon's didn't just start out at $50k, they built a long standing level of respect from Jeep enthusiasts and off-roaders alike. Its very well equipped from the factory. If Fords wants to slap a similar price tag on it, they need to do more than offer the same options. They have to take it one step further to draw an undecided buyer over to the Blue Oval camp. As much as I'm a Bronco fan, a Rubicon has proven itself over and over again in every category....sales, reviews, performance, resale, etc.
