not as many as I thought
I just noticed the f150 has cameras under the side mirrors and one pic of the center screen showed an overhead camera trickery view.

No, and it’s hilarious anyone would think that!!! 🤣🤣🤣
Ok...

It's had that feature since 2015. Very handy with the overhead view. The larger center screen will only make it better.

While the new Bronco does indeed have a swing gate as we have already established, there will be something that will make tailgate lovers happy. That's all I'll say. Just don't be too upset about the lack of a traditional tailgate because Ford hasn't forgotten about you.
A Swing Gate w/Tire mounted to it Screams WRANGLER!!!!!!

I'd MUCH Prefer the spare to be on a Body/Frame Hinged Mount.

The Tailgate can be like the two way tailgate of the 70's era Ford station wagon which would do Both Swing like a gate AND fold down as a Tailgate.

The rear window could be basically the same as the EB and lift up.

I sure hope that FoMoCo can give me something that I'll be satisfied with. Because I want the Bronco to not Copy the Wrangler in any way that's not absolutely necessary.

I had an 18 Raptor with that and I hated it. The backup & 360 cameras side by side images are too small to be useful on an 8 inch screen. Even worse was it defaulted to that setting. You needed to press a button to get full backup camera. Pretty annoying adding an extra step to backing up.

Did anybody notice different proportions on the f150? Im not sure if the cab got taller for more head room or the bedsides got shorter to actually be able to use it? Any thoughts?

Right, but does that mean if you don’t pay $$ for the option....it just stays upright, and no desk? IMO a column shifter is out of the way, and frees up space in the center console....like my old escape had. :cool:
You probably just get a regular console lid that doesn't have the extra flip function.

In the 2020 Explorers with the tall thin screen it's even worse - they have this massive tall screen where they could stack the full backup camera and the 360 view on top of each other, and what do they do? They leave the same 8" display setup of the side by side and then below it a massive "sensor" view that just shows the top of the car and red yellow green proximity displays for the vehicle's sensors. So dumb.

That use of the screen real estate is absurd! You need half the screen for the proximity sensor display? 😂

Typical software code reuse with minimal change budget allowed by management.

Second, software programmers trying to do the job of a GUI designer.
