  1. Real-world MPG difference Badlands vs BadSquatch?

    I talked about this topic (among others) with my down-the-street neighbor who gave in and switched to a soft top. Ran into him Sunday evening as I was taking a walk. He just finished a weekend camping trip—has a Badlands… 2.3L manual transmission with the high package. His numbers after just...
  2. Preparing to get screwed

    Unfortunately it'll depend on the individual dealers, as ultimately the final price is between you and the dealer. Ford themselves is offering price protection for everyone who ordered on or before March 19th (I think that was the date). Therefore the cost to the dealer should not change even...
  3. Bought a Bronco Sport Base.

    I have a Ford Escape with the 1.5L EcoBoost and as @rutherk1 and @HillbillyBronco mentioned... it is surprisingly peppy. 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque out of a 1.5L inline 3-cyl is honestly pretty impressive. My 1989 Bronco with the 4.9L straight-six had 145 horsepower with a...
  4. Newly Produced Broncos Being Shipped with MIC Top 2.0 Ahead of "Dirt Mountain" Replacements?

    As someone who used to work in corporate communications…… yup! It’s a lose/lose situation for Ford. You say one thing and half the people are mad at you, you say another and the other half are mad at you. You say nothing at all and they’re both mad. And if you come out saying the same thing...
  5. Wife not impressed - dream may be dead

    Hey same issue for me, luckily I found a solution. Original plan was to trade in her Ford Focus to get the Bronco… and I would keep my daily driver (a much older Focus). She would use the Bronco to haul the kids around during the day, and it would be a weekend/vacation fun vehicle. BUT…. she...
  6. Does $100 reservation go towards the cost of the car?

    It is SUPPOSED to go towards your purchase price. But since the final purchase price is between you and the dealer—and ultimately has nothing to do with Ford—it’s on you to ensure that the $100 credit is there.
  7. SOFT TOP….PREP KIT….????

    Keep in mind the mannequins were basically built however Ford could make them this time around. My dealer’s Wildtrak mannequin unit had the storage bags for the hard top panels and doors, but also had a “hard top delete” option. Ford essentially modified the dealer mannequin orders so they...

    New England Broncos

    4x4 trails in New England? Born and raised in northern Arizona. Lived within a 6-8 drive of some of the best 4x4 trails in the country. Left Arizona after college for job/family reasons, and suddenly I find myself in New England. My kids are now old enough to start appreciating the outdoors...
  9. Is Steel Rear Bumper Standard

    No. Only the Black Diamond and Badlands trim comes with a steel rear bumper. Every other trim comes with a composite bumper—regardless of whether you order the heavy-duty front bumper or not.
  10. 2.3 Manual Dead Pedal

    Yes there is a dead pedal.
  11. Ceramic Coating on my OBX

    Yeah it's an amazing color in direct sun. Not that it matters anymore, but almost ordered that color myself. Only reason why I didn't is because I just happened to see an F-150 with that color on a cloudy day. Just looked like a super dark purple--almost black--kinda disappointing. Guessing...
  12. 7 speed Manuel Vs 10 speed Auto.

    Just to echo @goatman the only reason to get a manual is if you enjoy driving manuals. The advantage to driving manual is you have (more or less) complete control over how the vehicle operates. However, because you have complete control, you lose out on a bunch of the modern automatic...
  13. Coming Soon... License Plate Relocation Bracket

    No fog lights on the modular bumper... so not an issue. Unless you do aftermarket fog lights of course., but that's just the nature of the beast with aftermarket.
  14. Bronco 2.3 VS 2.7 engine drive comparison

    Wish I did so I could tell the engineers to build a 2.7L manual. But alas… I don’t.
  15. SoundBar Worth It?

    The dealer demo Big Bend had one installed. It definitely made the stock system sound a lot better… BUT… I don’t think it made it sound $800 + install cost better (requires a reprogram of the system by your dealer, so you can’t fully install it yourself). As others have mentioned, it also...
  16. Over MSRP and insurance question...

    Hey insurance questions—my jam—I work for an insurance company. The answer it that it varies widely based on your state, the insurance company, and your particular coverage. Most insurance companies will cover the assessed value of the car up until MSRP (unless state law says otherwise). There...
  17. What is the Ford OEM Soft Top?

    Probably a good move not to make a big stink about it. Ford themselves removed the dual-top option and the shadow black painted top option earlier this year—it wasn't your dealer. Both of those options were delayed until 2023, and your First Edition Bronco would no longer have been a First...
  18. Bronco 2.3 VS 2.7 engine drive comparison

    Honestly—might do the same. I haven't fully decided yet... going to see how Ford prices the Sasquatch manual package, but I'm close to switching. If I do switch, it'll be the first automatic vehicle I've ever owned. But with electric vehicles on the horizon I guess I should get used to not...
  19. Bronco 2.3 VS 2.7 engine drive comparison

    Having driven a Big Bend 2.3L and a Wildtrak (2.7L w/ Sas std), I completely disagree about the 35s being more comfortable on the road. I found the Big Bend to be significantly more comfortable on the road. I also don't fully agree in regards to the packages. I don't feel like High/Lux is...
  20. 2022 Bronco Raptor Discovered in Ordering System – Reveals Body Code, 4-Door, Levels, Code Orange & Desert Sand Colors, Everglades Trim

    Haha... the 7.3L Godzilla in the Bronco. That makes absolutely no sense, but I would love to see it. No point in putting in a giant cast iron ~560lbs engine 7.3L V-8 engine when they can just stick in a significantly lighter ~350lbs dual turbo EcoBoost 3.5L V6 and get more power/torque out of...
