OBS Bronco Engine Parts
The 5th generation Bronco, better known as the Original Body Style or OBS Bronco, came equipped with three different engine options. The first option was the 4.9L inline-six-cylinder. This engine was a carry-over from the 4th generation Bronco and did not continue through the full era of the OBS Broncos. The next two options were the 5.0L V8 and the 5.8L V8 engines. These V8 engines were known for making good horsepower and torque. They were essentially borrowed from the Ford F-series truck lineup, so they also provided the durability to handle your weekends of off-road adventures and move you comfortably down the highway.
The Bronco has always been known to have great power to match its off-road capability. This power was always perfectly matched to the providing great off-road torque, towing, and on-road passing. Over the years, the Bronco has become more powerful while providing better fuel economy.
With the introduction of the 5th generation (1992-1996) body style Ford Bronco, Ford emerged from the fuel crisis of the 1970s and 1980s. Ford was free to return to more powerful engines that provided plenty of horsepower and torque without much worry to fuel economy. For the 5th generation Bronco, Ford dropped the outdated 4.9L inline six-cylinder for its short-lived 2-year lifespan in favor of the more powerful 5.0L (302C.I.D) and 5.8L (351C.I.D) engine options. The only transmission available Ford released for the 5th generation Bronco was the 4-speed automatic. These combinations allowed Bronco owners to have the best of both worlds on and off-road with updated torque and reliability of EFI!
