If it means the Bronco will get the 3.0L V6 Ecoboost and related hybrid system the Aviator and Explorer are getting it would be good news.

It could also mean the 2.0L they put in the Edge and Everest.

I don't think that hybrid technology is a high priority for serious off-roaders...

It will certainly help with CAFE averages, but I know the desirability of the 2.0 turbo in the Jeep Wrangler is very low compared to the normally aspirated V6. How does a hybrid with all of its extra electronics, motors, and batteries do when submerged in 4 feet of water? The extra weight is definitely not an advantage when crawling over boulders, although the low-speed torque of electric motors might be helpful.

I'll take a wait-and-see attitude toward a hybrid Bronco...
