The 1992-1996 OBS Bronco featured a few unique engine combinations. These included the I-6 4.9L six-cylinder, the popular 5.0L 302 V8, and the sought-after 5.8L 351 V8. Most Bronco owners opted for the larger 5.8L in most cases. Depending on the model options you chose, if the 351 was available, this was the route to go due to its heightened torque output. This was what Bronco owners wanted for crawling over rough terrain and general off-roading.
