We just got our first solid look inside the Ford Bronco Maverick (aka the Baby Bronco), showing more rugged interior design elements compared to its Ford Escape platform-mate.

Key elements of the Baby Bronco’s center stack are visible, revealing a revised infotainment and vent layout from its more car-like cousin. While the new Ford Escape has sleek, flowing shapes with slim air vents mounted relatively low on the dashboard, the Baby Bronco gets chunkier, vertically-oriented vents flanking its decently-sized LCD display. The primary row of infotainment controls—and the attendant Volume and Tuning knobs—look like they’re lifted from the Escape, but the addition of the Hazard button makes for a slightly different interface. The Bronco Maverick's Start/Stop button is placed flush on the center stack, while its tucked away a bit more elegantly on the more sleekly-styled dashboard of the Escape.

The HVAC controls are covered on this prototype, but they’re most likely mounted on the lower-third of the center stack—likely utilizing parts very closely associated with the Escape. This prototype’s steering wheel also looks to be lifted directly from the Escape. We also see the same rotary transmission selector, and an array of console-mounted buttons that appear to be shared between the two models.

Much of the Bronco Maverick's exterior design has been revealed, due to leaks and internal spy photos, but the nature of its interior design had been a mystery—until now. We can now get a taste of the design direction Ford stylists have applied inside the Bronco Maverick, in order to set it apart from the more polished Escape that entered Ford’s lineup last year.

I think one of FORD's weaknesses is it's dash/infotainment center design...I don't like the look of this one. Looks like it gets the digital gauges which is nice.

Too bad the photographer didn't take a pic of the ceiling or back at the interior if they got close enough for those. We could have guessed it would lift most of the dash parts from the Escape.

I hope that the rotary shifter shown will not make production. I like a shifter, not a washing machine knob. But since the Shelby GT 500

has one, so will this.

Didn't like the screen placement on the Escape, don't like it here. I've never been a fan of screens that stick up out of the dashboard.
IDK I feel this one looks a little more integrated, less like a tablet/GPS set on the dashboard. Just have to wait and see I guess. But, I do agree, the escapes looks odd.

It's all drive by wire in vehicles like these anyway. Keypad, dial, lever would all do the same thing, make a series of electrical contacts. The automatic Bronco will be the same, and the manual could be too.

Is this one suppose to have a removable roof as well? Looks like a seam or something on the roof line.

I agree that this one isn't as bad, but it looks like at least a third of the screen sticks up above the dashboard on its own which is what I don't like. If they want the big screen sticking up, I'd prefer that it was at least integrated into a cowl or something like the gauge pods on older jdm suvs:

Thats either a wire or part of the headliner-there is no way this would have a removable roof-it would compromise the crash cell around the passengers. Its a unit body design, not Body on Frame like the BroncoBronco.

guessing a wire for a sensor or data transmitter they have up on the roof or such.
