Ford Battles Chinese Bronco Copycats By Officially Selling One

We can also see a few differences in dimensions, probably because of equipment, but the wheelbase remains at 116.1 inches. The off-roader also has 5,046 lbs of curb weight and 45-degree approach and 37-degree departure angles.

In the engine department, the Chinese Bronco will use a locally-produced (by Changan Ford Motor Co., Ltd.) 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-four engine that makes 271 horsepower and 336 lb-ft torque. These are lower than the 300 hp of the US-spec 2.3-liter EcoBoost but have higher torque.

No gearbox option was revealed, but reports from China indicated that it’s coming with an eight-speed automatic transmission, as opposed to the 10-speed slushbox in America.
