😎👍 yeah, 2.7L, 2 Door Base in AMB.


Only other main extra was the aux switches.

🥳👍 and congratulations on getting a build date.
Interesting, I had no idea haha. Nice! Did you get a build date yet?

Edit: for some reason I thought I read you got the manual transmission.

😎👍 in that respect I can see where you are coming from; 50 thousand and up is a lot of cash.

🤔 perhaps the the sophisticated systems is what they were more focused on and trying to make the higher trims all the more capable with the tech they put?

Perhaps they could have put the soft touch materials on the dash like cars have and such to get a more premium feel, like maybe for the Outer banks.
At the end of the day, it’s nowhere near a deal breaker for me. My Silverado interior is definitely plasticy and very utilitarian and I don’t mind driving it at all. It’s more the principle of the thing - and kind of weird since I’ve always felt Ford did a great job with interiors while keeping prices relatively low compared to luxury brands. I know my BIL’s Explorer is almost as nice inside as a BMW X5 for example.

I guess with the Bronco brand they are going for the hardcore “function over form” strategy and I am OK - if a little surprised - by that.

I also plan to take mine skiing, trout fishing and into the hinterlands a lot, so it’s probably for the best. 🙂

Cool little Easter Egg I just noticed...

The "Off-Roadeo Ranger" in the SlashGear video is Blake Torgersen (@Torgsurv), who did the Bronco Knoll write-up. :cool:

Check out the GPS coordinates on his name tag. Well played, Blake. Well played! 👏
Haha yeah I noticed that was him. I’m so jealous of Blake and the fact he gets to do that as his day job. (Even if it’s out in this Texas heat 🔥)

And that’s before we even get to that Clint Eastwood/Harrison Ford vibe he’s putting out there.😎

Yeah, honestly, that Bronco Knoll thread is one of my all-time favorites on B6G! I even suggested that Bronco Knoll be the location for a B6G Stigger Rally. :love:

B6G Stigger Rally at Bronco Knoll? o_O

:cool:(y) just watched, always like these guys take on reviews.

... my first time was when I was looking for vids before getting my 2017 Ridgeline; they were really informative.
They were deffinitly one of the better if not the best review of the videos. This is what the TFL review should have been. I was really disappointed with their content.

😎👍 no problem.

And build will likely be a 2022.
Sorry, I know it's a little off topic, but curious. I've been reading a ton of different things about pricing. Were you able to get an actual final price when you converted your order? I was in the process of moving from Virginia back to Georgia so I went to my local dealership in Georgia. At the time I converted my order they gave me the build sheet showing MSRP, but they never gave me a final price. I'm hoping they're honest, but I also heard that Ford told the dealership they can't charge reservation holders over MSRP. I went back by the dealership and asked them if they could give me a final price and they said they weren't sure yet..... This whole process has been a bit frustrating.

I'm with Serramonte Ford in California, and when in moved my res, it was during the time when Ford took Xplan away for the 2021 model year and there was at that time a deadline when you can move your res (now that is not the case).
They had at that time a promotion to honor xplan; so I moved there to combat adm.

I got my build sheet and the msrp for the build; I'll get the otd price when they start to build mine ... our Bronco rep is very responsive and I could ask now if i wanted to

😎👍 they really seem to give their open opinion of things ... look at their review of the newer explorer they dont seem to hold back.

I've seen a lot of reviews with titles such as "first drive". But are there any in-depth reviews that also get into the technical aspects and guts of the vehicle? Meaning comparisons of axle strength and design to other vehicles, stuff like that? Some of the reviews still seem light on substance, considering the Bronco has already been released.
