Nice to see you can speed up in 4Low and then slow down and stays in 4Low.
...why would it not?

Edit: NM; I guess the 4L shift was done all via GOAT mode, and I could see how it could be programmed to try and force you out after a certain speed.

The graphic on that center button on the drive dial is interesting. I'm guessing on the manual it'll just be the 'regular' hill descent control icon (as in pretty standard across vehicles that have that feature).

I hope you are joking.
Not sure what your YJ does in 4L but I’ve had 2 JKs and you really can’t go past 20mph in 4L, at that point you’d better change to 4H but this appears the Bronco let’s you go a little faster.

I think it stayed in 4L. The drivers may have been pointing out the wide range of the 10sp made the effective speed range in 4L broader than other transmissions would have in the past. All the videos I have seen require N to engage or disengage 4L. But, with all things Bronco, I could have that wrong.

I was looking at it as "why would it automatically shift you out of 4L based on speed?" I've never been in a vehicle that did/ does that.

But given GOAT can apparently try and force a range change - pausing to shift to N aside - I guess it could be a fair question.

Fantastic video. I noticed two things:
1. That Cactus Grey looked AWESOME from the view over the hood. Build and Price be damned.
2. Did you notice how quiet that ride seemed? In the audio I didn’t hear any rattles, etc.
I’m an F-150 guy. I love the room and the anytime utility of a truck. I’d foresaken the days of strapping the Christmas tree to a roof rack. “Throw it in the bed!” I didn’t think the Bronco would seriously tempt me unless it was cheaper than an F-150. But right now I want to strap into a Badlands and never drive on a paved road again.
