    Which power train won't be a lemon?

    Amen, brother. Can’t wait to get out of my slug Tacoma and into something with a little pep at this altitude.

    Levine Says New Bronco Colors and Special Editions Coming!

    No, the tweet specifically refers to the 2/4 door Bronco. Why would you say otherwise?

    Video: Iconic Silver Bronco Big Bend 4-Door With MIC Hardtop

    Those mudflaps are the best part. I plan on putting some super-long baja flaps on mine.

    Base Bronco 2-Door Iconic Silver spotted in Wixom, MI

    It looks so much like a Bronco II or 80s Ranger (same thing, I know). I love it!

    Top reasons jeep wrangler better than bronco

    Yeah? Inside the Bronco beats the heart of a Mazda. Look up the history on the 4-cyl Ecoboost sometime.

    Area 51 Black Diamond Interior + 8" Inch Screen Photos

    Love the BD grille, hate the light-colored dash. Reflections in the sun, anyone?

    question about the manual.

    My gf has just such a car with a manual transmission. It's incredibly easy to shift, kind of fun, but there's a lack of sensation and heft. It feels very distant and remote. My old WRX had a direct linkage, with the stick emerging from the transmission located immediately beneath the center...

    Manual Transmission Throw Length

    I wonder how the ergonomics of the seat cushion will work out. It's hard to describe, but, in some vehicles the seat is too high off the floor for comfortable clutching -- when I push in the clutch, the front edge of the seat digs into my thighs. I test drove a manual Subaru Forester in the...

    Pics: Bronco Slide-Out Tailgate and Sunrider Top

    That pale metallic brown dash looks so cheap, and I bet durability is subpart on that finish. Glad I'm not forced into that on BB.

    Video: Bronco Conducting High & Low Speed Durability Testing, Johnson Valley

    It’s not that the gray top looks bad by itself, it’s the contrast with all the other body plastics — they’re black plastic. Check out the B pillar vs hardtop. That’s three main colors (including the paint), which is too many.

    So the dash is grey now?

    Cute. Allow me to clarify: I’ve never driven a vehicle with a light-colored dash where it didn’t cause excessive glare in the windshield.

    So the dash is grey now?

    In the year 2020, Ford is having issues with the dash warping? Unbelievable. Thought we left that failure mode behind decades ago, but I haven’t owned a domestic in about that long, so...

    So the dash is grey now?

    The light gray is a f-ing disaster for causing reflections in the windshield when you’re driving.

    How much more interior room does the 4 door really have than the 2 door?

    Cubic feet, bud. Ain't no one talking about depth in the post you quoted.

    PICS: BASE Bronco in Iconic Silver - completed preproduction model

    I agree, likely the silver 2-door we saw earlier. Looks sharp! Except for that darn gray top contrasting with the black B pillar and other plastic. I like how the base has a lot of aftermarket upgrade potential. Enormous wheelwells.

    Cyber Orange Paint Thread

    Thanks for sharing! What is the source? Looks like the angles were carefully chosen to avoid showing off the contrast between the gray top and the black B and C pillars.

    No Manual trans with Base 4-Door

    A thread here with a bit more discussion:

    No manual on 4-door Base?

    Your numbers don’t add up. The 4-door Wrangler starts at $31,795 (with a manual). Adding the auto costs $1500. Total cost: $33,295 The 4-door Bronco (with auto included) starts at $33,200. A difference of $95 to entice prospective cross-shoppers? Come on. If the Bronco base 4-door could be...

    Educate me. Pizza cutter vs Sasquach style. Pros and cons.

    I'll say it slower: you can't build a Base 4-door with a manual. But you can build a Base (which comes with the automatic by default) with Sasquatch. And you can get a manual transmission with the Sasquatch, eventually. Just not a BaseManSquatch.

    Educate me. Pizza cutter vs Sasquach style. Pros and cons.

    Great idea, except you can't get the manual with the Base 4-door. Try the B&P and you'll see what I mean.
