There will be a 2021 Bronco Ride Along event early next week and we have an Bronco6G attendee willing to ask questions on behalf of our community!

Time will be limited, so we'll have to be selective about which questions get asked (and some questions will be answered by the prepared info released when embargo lifts). I'll collect the questions in the first post here.

Answers and Info will be shared after the embargoes lift. Here's what you can expect:
  • All news and interviews will be embargoed until 6 a.m. ET on Thursday, August 13.
  • Ride experiences in new Bronco models are embargoed until 6 a.m. ET on Tuesday, August 18."
I know Ford has said the the 7 speed manual won't be paired with the TT 2.7, but why? The 6 speed manual paired with the 5.0 in my 2019 Bullitt is an insanely fun beast to drive. Why can't the 7 speed work with the 2.7????

See my response on that from another thread.

That might be a factor, but the bigger thing is that the 2.7 has never been offered with a manual, and there are design and machining changes that need to be made to make an engine designed exclusively for auto usage compatible with a manual.

Ford probably just doesn’t have enough of a business case to make the changes of adding another variant of the 2.7 engine to their production line. (For reference, the 2.3 has always been available with a manual or auto, so they don’t need to make any major changes to it)

Also, Ford has been going wild with dealer installed tunes that let you keep your warranty, and a tuned 2.7 would definitely exceed that manual transmissions rating.

Another reason is that the bellhousing is integrated into the transmission housing, so they would need another variant of the mti550, and there probably isn’t enough of a business case for that either.

What's the full story on the rear seats in the 2-door? And when can we order Velocity Blue? Also, why the hell isn't the auto swaybar available for all trims?
I am concerned with the rear seats on the 2 door as well. Can an adult fit back there or to have usable rear seats do you need to purchase a 4 door? I prefer the look of the 2 door and have reserved one already.

Can they try to get a true representation for us of any of the colors? 🤞🏽

Thank you 😊

I would also like information on the two door rear seats if they fold flat and if they are removable at least by unbolting them. Also the color accented interior pieces will they change with the color of the exterior paint? For instants the black diamond had blue accents won’t look right with red paint
