This is the same decision I had to make. Doing 2dr BD race red and my build is less than 40K.
Couldn't rationalize another 5-6K for Badlands. I know I'm not doing any hard core off roading and the BD will do me just fine.
The dealers know they are only going to be able to satisfy about 30% of those on their reservation list. They want to firm up the ones in their earlierst 30% of reservations who are going to convert their reservation to orders.
Remember they are going to be PUNISHED by Ford if they don't...
My dealership in southeast TN called me this morning. I'm NUMBER 1 in line at their dealership. Made my reservation that first night. Tried at 8pm but didnt go through for a couple of hours. I like that spot in line.

I'm getting a pretty bare bones BD for less than 40K. I've seen much nicer builds going out for 60k-70K.
That's fine for those people. For me I'll have as much fun in mine for 20K less. It's a free market. People are welcome to pay for what they want, when they want, or to make the...
Because I hate delayed gratification.
I got a reservation about 2 hours after they opened so I have a good place in line and should be an early order.
Covid tried to kill me in November and altered my outlook on life. A positive from that is my wife is no longer grumbling about me getting a...
The two door looks like the classic Bronco I always wanted. To ME the four door looks too much like a Jeep.
And, I don't like my kids enough to buy them their own doors on my daily driver. They can crawl their butts into and out of the back seat!
I'd argue that in the days after the initial wave of early orders this was in fact a true statement. Who knew that that high demand would maintain a high level of orders for months, that production would be delayed by several months, and that the model year '21 would be a much shorter run than...
