Some 2021 Ford Bronco 6G Vehicles Exhibit Loss of Power at Highway Speeds
As of 7/26/22, the NHTSA has officially launched an investigation into the safety of the 2021 Ford Bronco. The formal investigation follows the request by 3 petitioners filed in May. The petitions alleged that 2021 Ford Broncos vehicles are experiencing a loss of motive power at highway speeds without restarting, a serious safety defect.
After receiving reports of alleged catastrophic engine failure in some newer model(2021-2022) Ford 6G Bronco SUV’s, the NHTSA began research in May 2022 to determine whether or not to launch an investigation. The NHTSA assigned the preliminary investigation action number DP22001. Ford’s 60,000 mile, 5-year powertrain warranty should cover repairs to affected vehicles. According to one online Bronco6G forum, 50 of its members have posted complaining of the engine failure. The issue affects Ford 6G Bronco models powered by the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. Reportedly, the loss of power at high speeds is caused by a valve train related problem, a dropped valve that damages the cylinder and the head. Many of the affected SUVs have received a new engine.
Ford has reportedly had the most recalls of any U.S. manufacturer in 2022, a total of 45 to date. Ford is aware of the issue and doing intensive investigation as well.
