I say this as a multiple Ford (and Bronco owner). Then Ford will simply not be on the same level unfortunately as the Wrangler. Leave a V8 to the aftermarket I guess but it seems silly that they can't focus sales on Turbo-V6 and then offer a naturally aspirated V8 (make it ridiculously expensive then the take rate will be lower). Have you guys driven a Turbo F150 vs a V8? The turbo is great for certain things but what about longevity and real world towing. There is no replacement for displacement, so I guess I'll wait for Hennessey et al. to put a Godzilla 7.3 in one.

Big respect for the Legend Rod Hall BUT it seems like we keep hearing about how this Hall family early bronco is the 1969 winning truck which it is NOT. Big ford fan and personally own multiple Bronco's (including a '69 bronco) and just wish we could get the press to acknowledge the real heritage of this specific Hall family truck. Also generally grateful to Hagerty for the content. Lastly if Ford Motorsports is looking at these comments, I'm certain you can be put in touch with the original '69 winning truck (the owner is known)....and the reasons why the Hall family truck is NOT the '69 winner is well documented by two well known Ford and Bronco related historians. This is the actual '69 winning truck from when it ran NORRA in 2012. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5VxANWsepk
