That rain sensor or camera the rear view is attached to is yuuge. I do like the exposed bolt heads on the dash end as it looks to be telegraphing interior design elements. Flat dash, I approve, bigly. The round dial behind gear shift w/ lights/push buttons, maybe terrain management (?) but odd that it would not be on steering wheel as f150 / raptor. Strange placement for whatever it might be. There are some oddities, such as what looks to be final design for gear selector. Holding out hope for some forthcoming retro goodness.
Its in the same spot on the explorers

The dash design and screen placement is definitely tipping the scales in favor of getting the Bronco over the Mach E, for me.

Big shift knob instead of dial.
Those buttons on the dash definitely look like at least front and rear lockers.
Auxillary switches on roof.
Big integrated screen, not a stupid tablet sticking up.
Flat and simple overall design.
I'm really, really liking it! Ford is checking all boxes so far for me, I'm getting really excited. Now, let's see those spy shots of a manual version...

Looks like it might have a rotary knob instead of a shifter for the 4x4 stuff?
The rotary knob looks like it's for terrain response modes...but where's the 2H/4A/4H/4L selector?

Has a new menu option called Features. Not sure what that is
SYNC 4 - See 2020 Explorer SYNC 3 system for similar layout. More than likely the system options that would be carried out by steering wheel buttons will be laid out in the main system menu. It allows more functionality of the buttons occupying real estate on the steering wheel.

That's my favorite feature. I think it's an eject button for the passenger seat.
Maybe it's the "Wifey Eject Button" for when she starts nagging.

ok, so, as mentioned, on the top. with those switches there will at least have to be a center section, so no completely open air ala EB. Will be a complete roof section of the seats ala the FSB, or T-tops, or something else?

Shirely, you can't be serious.

But, yeah, that flat dash is definitely cool.
Yeah. I already have 2 cool offroaders and there's a billion other cool used ones I could get. I don't have a cool electric wagon/SUV thing that will let me run my 80 mile commute for like $1.20 a day. But I will give up that cool factor for an offroader that could actually be cooler than anything I can buy these days (also I want something from this millennium, maybe even with a warranty and stuff).

Let's be honest the Mach E is cool but it was always going to be the Bronco unless the Bronco had some numbskull design feature like a giant tablet glued to the dash or a non-removeable roof or an $80k price tag for the cool version.

So items 1 and 2 are checked off, now it's down to price ...

Then again I may still get the MachE and then buy @Jalisurr 's PajEvo after he gets his Bronco ...
