Last year for 4.9L 300?

What was the latest year model to have the straight 6 as an option? I would like to have a bronco with the straight 6 in the near future and I want it to be as new as possible. Thanks for any input.

92 was the last year in a BRONCO and extremely rare....96 was the last year in an f150, and since the 250/350 were a year behind for the body change, 97 in the heavy duty.

with a parts truck, you can make a v8 bronco an I6 bronco in a few days.

Only positive accolades intended.

What I meant is that you posted a much more accurate, complete and researched response as opposed to my piddly four digit response. I did not represent Cliff Clavin very well.

This type of good information is what is expected from you! I filed it for later reference.

Because Broncos are so much heavier than F150s, and those last few years didn't see many low-trim Broncos rolling of the line, so they just stopped offering the "little" engine.

I don't know what is so appealing to me about the six but for some reason I like the idea of one in a bronco for towing with low end torque. I feel like there are less ways to improve and modify them than the 5.0's and 5.8's. I'll be happy with either of the 3 as long as I can rebuilt it the way I want it.

Sackman, that's just ANOTHER website with information that may or not be true... It says in 1993 the transfer case of choce was a New Process but I thought its been a Borg Warner since the mid eighties...? If my 96 was nearby I'd just crawl under and look but oh well.

Ya i noticed that also. I never heard of a New Process 200 but i know for a fact my 96 has a Borg Warner 1356 jsut like my 88.

the 4.9 is a great motor. you are right that there arnt nearly as many way to mod the engine compared to a 302/351. really the only thing i ever hear of is turboing the 300 which i hear great results from

Andrew, I agree with what you're saying but I'm pretty sure 93 was the last year for the 4.9

You have interpreted this incorrectly. What the web-site is stating is that the 4.9L was no longer offered in the 1993 Bronco, not that this was the last year.

Westcoast Broncos

1993 brought the end of the 300 CID I-6, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes are now standard. Transfer case was now a New Process model 200 with low range of 2.69.

And what the heck is up with them citing a NP 200 Transfer Case when we all know that it was a Borg Warner 1356? The NP 200 came in the 1967-1969 Jeep/Kaiser M-715 1.25 ton military trucks, old military Dodge M-37's and older Powerwagons and Internationals. I stand by my research into what Ford actually offered in the Bronco.


1990 4th Generation
- 300 I6 (4.9L)/Mazda M5OD-R2 5-Speed Manual Overdrive
- 300 I6 (4.9L)/E4OD 4-Speed Automatic Overdrive
- 302 V8 (5.0L)/Mazda M5OD-R2 5-Speed Manual Overdrive
- 302 V8 (5.0L)/AOD 4-Speed Automatic Overdrive
- 351W V8 (5.8L)/E4OD 4-Speed Automatic Overdrive

1993 5th Generation
- 302 V8 (5.0L)/Mazda M5OD-R2 5-Speed Manual Overdrive
- 302 V8 (5.0L)/E4OD 4-Speed Automatic Overdrive
- 351W V8 (5.8L)/E4OD 4-Speed Automatic Overdrive
