The Ford Bronco will use the Ranger’s 2.3-liter four-cylinder

We’re not normally in the habit of randomly running through Canadian Tire’s online tool for finding

car parts

. Today we made an exception, though, after reading

a report from off-road.com

indicating that “

Canada’s

top department store” — their words, not ours — leaked confirmation that the upcoming

Ford

Bronco will feature a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine.

We checked it ourselves, and sure enough,

Canadian Tire will happily show its customers wiper blade options for the 2021 Ford Bronco

, along with a slew of other parts and accessory categories. And the store’s online tool does indeed indicate that said Bronco will have a 2.3-liter DOHC engine. The engine carries a 4-140 description, which likely means 4 cylinders and 140 cubic inches of displacement.

This is presumably the same turbocharged four-cylinder engine that powers the current

Ford Ranger

.

2021 Ford Bronco engine information

This is far from confirmation of the Bronco’s powertrain, but it jives with our previously held expectations. We know the Bronco will share a good deal of its underpinnings with the

Ranger

, and carrying over its well-regarded engine and transmission makes sense. We’d expect power ratings of 270 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque to carry over from the truck to the SUV, likely routed to all four wheels through the same 10-speed automatic transmission.

We don’t know exactly when the new Ford Bronco will debut, but there’s a good chance we have a good long time to wait before we get any sort of confirmation from the Blue Oval. And that means we can expect a lot more

spy photos

, leaks,

rumors

and reports to surface in the meantime. Buckle up, Bronco fans.
