So why did Ford underrate these figures in the first place? The answers can vary but typically their standard of measuring is in different conditions compared to how most people dyno their cars. For example, the air is less dense when testing in hot climates or at high altitudes, resulting in a lower output. Other times it’s for marketing reasons.
This is a common practice among automakers, especially high-performance brands like BMW, Porsche, and Mercedes-Benz. Whatever the situation was at Ford, we honestly don’t care. More power is more power (for regular and premium fuel!), and both Bronco engines deliver the goods.
