Anyone else cross shopping the Bronco with the 2021 F-150?

Unless the F150 now has removable top and doors and manual, no I’m not cross shopping with an F150.

I have been tempted by Mustang GTs and GT350s though so anything is possible

If I chose a truck over the Bronco it would also have to have some cool fun factor to it as well.

Like an F250 with tremor package or something. My issue would be it wouldn't have the open air experience then. That's kind of the point of getting the Bronco I'm the first place.

It used to be that a truck was utility and bare bones but oh boy are they fancy now buddy just picked up a 2016 f150 3.5? Super nice inside like a trucaddilac.

Totally understand. I’ll always own a super duty, I need a truck and could never dream of trying to make a small SUV do truck stuff. Bronco is for fun. Sounds like the truck is more practical for you from your statement.

No cross shopping here... By the time you list a couple key requirements:
- manual transmission
- 4 wheel drive

Not a lot of options out there and unfortunately I am not interested am a jeep...

If a pickup better fits your lifestyle, another consideration would be to purchase a one-owner '16-'18 F150 with the FX4 package because it already comes with some skid plate protection and a rear locker. Then, have it professionally built with a front locker, mild lift to handle 35" tires, upgraded shocks/springs, front and rear bumpers and rock rails. You can choose between the 5.0 V8 and the 3.5 turbo. The tuning guys will go with the 3.5 because there's a lot of room there for more horsepower and torque with just tuning. You'll end up with roughly the same price as a new Bronco but have a lot more off road capability than a stock F150.

If you have a space, or a back yard to park it in just get a 5x8 trailer for that oncea month trip to Home Depot.

I’ve noticed most of the long bed trucks I see around here (LA) have rear quarter/bed damage. Tight parking lots/drive aisles are not built to accommodate them.

Nope. I am driving a 2011 F150 right now. Financially it would make the most sense to keep it for another 4-5 years at least. But it is the Bronco and so that is happening in 2021.

Why not Ranger like someone said? The new tremor pack adds Bronco-ish stuff like switches, better lift, suspension and tires. A step above fx4

These are more geared to the adventure lifestyle than f150 are (accessories etc.) And you can fit on the tighter trails with Jeeps and Broncos without scratching paint.

One thing to consider is the Bronco is one fat pig. It has good angles and wheelbase but its not a narrow vehicle. A F-150 is 83.5 with mirrors folded, Wrangler is 73.8, and the Bronco is 79.3 with sasquatch. The Bronco is even wider than a Ranger.

I’m going from a 2018 f150 into a bronco , not sure exactly when since I’m doing my reservation today but for me I had the debate with myself In 2018 about truck or Jeep and went with the truck since I do electrical and figured it would be nice to have , well since owning this truck only time it hauls shit is when I’m getting calls from people to help move something haha , i knew the Jeep would of been the more enjoyable choice but it’s okay now I can get the bronco with my lesson learned . Fun over practicality from now on, also working in Boston makes parking an f150 a real pain
