What Is The BEST 2023 Bronco Trim? // Wildtrak Review

Constructed on the Ford T6 platform, the Bronco is available in either two or four-door variants and equips either a 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost motor, or in the instance of the Wildtrak, a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder EcoBoost motor.

The twin-turbocharged V6 powerplant carries a graphite-iron block, aluminium cylinder head, casted aluminum pistons, and a forged crank as well as rods, producing 330 hp and 425 lb-ft of torque which can be condignly enhanced through an official Ford Performance tune.

The Wildtrak presents exclusively the ten-speed Automatic transmission, so should you wish for a manual version, you’re going to be out of luck.

Even though certain accounts have depicted the 2.7-litre V6 EcoBoost motor as unreliable, according to Sarah, only the early models of 2021 were affected, fortuitously this is no longer a problem. Fuel consumption unfortunately does not fare too well with a meagre total of 13 MPG.

Despite its impressive size and weight of 4,935 lbs, the 4-door Wildtrak still has the capacity to tow 3,500 lbs; this is thanks to its specialized suspension system. As standard, it comes with Ford’s HOSS 3.0 suspension kit, Fox Racing internal bypass shock absorbers, as well as a 33 mm front and 17 mm rear sway bar and independent a-arm front suspension taken from the Raptor model.

The Wildtrak sits on seventeen-inch rims enveloped in Goodyear Territory Mud-terrain rubber all around with twelve-point-two inches of rotors up front and twelve-point-one in the back, armed with two-piston and single-piston calipers respectively.

Whilst Ford has given much attention to the internal improvements of the Wildtrak, Sarah remarks that the seats are still lacking in cushioning and the fabrics are inferior.

Going four-wheeling in the Wildtrak, Sarah mentions that it could still sustain its preeminent aptitude and the front and rear differentials locks, in addition to the G.O.A.T. drives settings supply the Bronco with more chances to stray from a well-worn road.

Making a base cost of $54,320, Sarah has identified the Wildtrak as one of the top selections when it comes to Broncos. However, for those who are less inclined to do the work themselves, she additionally advises against exploring the extensive options list, wherein prices may quickly ascend to nearly $65,000.
