The way my friend described it to me, was its Ford paralleling what Toyota does with their TRD performance upgrades. You can get a "TRD" trim pkg but it you just wanted a base pkg you could also had the TRD supercharger a la cart.
Small Print: I hate when people start rumors like this stating "they know a guy who knows a guy". So much so, I made a video to distinguish between fact vs fiction with the Bronco. However, if my friend wasn't in upper-middle management with Ford I would file this rumor mentally as hearsay, but he is a Bronco fan and is trying to debunk rumors as best as possible and that was the only one that he couldn't seem to shake the fallacy off of. I feel very confident, Ford will offer some trick, custom items that are factory produced and installed that aren't necessarily standard on any trim packages.
