I'm thinking of getting a Base + the Sasquatch package but without knowing the price thats not a guarantee.

My other option or thought is to just get the Big Bend instead and get the Area 51 color i want. It does come with 32 inch tires which is still good.

Which one be better?

I was in the same boat. I‘ve decided I’ll get the BB and bump up to 33” ATs and call it good. After thinking about my life style the 35s, though awesome to behold, are just more than I need.

That's what I'm thinking. I reserved a Base then added a Big Bend, cause I want lockers without Squatch. And Area 51, of course.

It looks like Big Bend also gives the option of a locking rear diff. You can also get the mid package. That's honestly all I'll need.
I wonder how much the Locking rear diff will cost? I wish they would release pricing already.

Sasquatch gives upgraded suspension as well. So I'd really like to see the price of that Sasquatch package. I haven't reserved anything yet because of all this uncertainty. Maybe I still should? I don't know.

I’ve been debating this for the past few days
Love the options on BB but love the price on the base...

I feel the same way, once the package pricing comes out, that will determine what I want to spend or not spend, too much uncertainty to reserve one until then.

Package pricing is going to determine may peoples choices...and crash the Ford website when the build and price is released for the Bronco.

Locking diff on the Ranger and F150 $420-ish. Hoping it's similar on the Bronco.

Just get the High Lift package instead of the Sasquatch. It should be cheaper. All it comes with are basic larger shocks, bead lock wheels, and 35” mud tires.
If getting that package for the Base Wouldn't you need locking diffs and the lower gear ratio? Thats where the Sasquatch package comes in.

Man this is still a hard choice for me. I really like the Area 51 and Cactus Grey. They need to list the pricing of the packages already so I can make up my mind.

Can you bump up to 33" from the Factory?

I've been tossing these options around as well, mostly because my wife will crucify me if I drop $45k+ on a joyride vehicle. My two favorite colors on the Bronco are the Cyber Orange and Velocity Blue, with the latter being available on the Base and Big Bend models. That being said I would really like a Velocity Blue, 2 door Big Bend, with both the Sasquatch and Mid packages. If the bells and whistles in the Mid Package are too pricey though, I may just opt for a Base with Sasquatch as I've been driving my whole life without these driver assistance things. To me, it's just more electronic things that will eventually break.

All the driver assistance options are really not needed. We have on the Edge sport the lane assist and the parking assist, both get used very rarely and really are not needed. The parking assist is not needed if you know how to park. The lane assist can be frustrating at times if the lanes are mis marked or a fork in the road, we usually have it turned off. The parking sensors can sometimes go off by "Ghost" objects.

So in short, screw some of these tech features, they can be as much as an annoyance as they can assistive.

My wife went from "I must have all these new features" to "I absolutely hate all this tech".
