That’s a good point. How are you supposed to read about how to use a feature of the entertainment system when you are using the screen to read the manual.
How do I do figure out how to do a screenshot on my Mac, when I am using my Mac?

It almost feels the complete opposite of new defender. Everyone hated it until they drove it and then people who drove it liked it (except TFL but lets admit, even for a brand with low reliabiliity, that was wild and is an outlier)

Bronco is everyone excited and approving of the new look but what if everyone drives it and hates it?
My neighbor just picked up a new Defender and loves it. After playing around with LR's B&P and not running into any GVWR issues ;), I really wish Ford would have placed the Bronco in this class of vehicles for a variety of reasons even though I get they are targeting the Wrangler and there are some other (most likely financial), reasons...

Ultimately, I believe the Bronco will be amazing, it's just too bad Ford is hamstrung by GVWR guardrails for some of the smaller details.

Nearly every car manf has moved to either a combo of online/paper manuals or online only. If anything, Ford is late to the game.

Do you really need to print the whole manual, you need to understand how seatbelts work :) j/k.
No, but I might need it to figure out how to reset the oil change gauge/count down or what torque to use for the lug nuts. Also, I like documenting maintenance in the service manual. Is this available in the dash screen manual? My preference is to have both soft and hard copies.

I know everyone is tired of the Bronco delays, but even the Jeep 4xe has been delayed (without much of a sound) due to COVID. Back at the reveal they mentioned the Jeep 4xe would be “coming December 2020”, but now they have pushed that back to “coming Q1 2021”.

The main part is “without much of a sound”.
In all honesty, I don't know if it will be the best thing on four wheels or not. But yet, tens of thousands of people will absolutely love it! Including you (and many others in this bitching echo-chamber) once you come to terms with all of your micro-disappointments.

If maybe there were one thing done differently with this product release, perhaps it would have been to be less forthcoming with information, teasers, etc. In a hypercritical world, it's probably better to be late (very late) but accurate.

These good people didn't sign up for daily stonings, yet here they are.... and so are you...
Do I hope we love it? Absolutely!

Am I convinced we will be? Not one bit

My point is, time will tell. While I agree it isn’t fair to immediately assume these pre-production hiccups will mean a junk product, I also don’t think because it has the name Bronco that it automatically gets its name in the history books and all concerns being raised now get tossed aside.

Wow, You are so informative, a master engineer, thanks for your insight!
You do realize I was parroting back what you said - right? Looks kinda silly on second read through?

Amazing how every other manufacturer selling vehicles in the USA can figure out how to equip their top trim vehicles (read FE) with a tow package if the other trim levels in the line have a tow pack but Ford can’t.

Government meanies!
Ya, it’s called compromising, something that creates inferior builds, I’m happy, don’t care about you! lol

True that, the ability to order a receiver hitch on a body on frame vehicle has always been considered the height of compromise and indicator of an inferior build.

sure, see my last post. But I would rather not have to kill my printer or take to Kinkos. Those factory manuals fit very nice in the dash. For all you guys talking about taking it off the grid, I think you would prefer that too. Maybe the mall runners don't care....
Yep, first world problems. No hardcopy vehicle manual, I’m cancelling my reservation/order. The complaining around here is laughable.

Have you ever pulled your manual when off road? I don’t think I have...don’t remember seeing anyone else do it. You use your manual a lot off road? In fact, how often do you pull the manual at all? Not really a concern after all, is it? Just something to bitch about.

Well great. Started watching this video this afternoon and my wife was like “Um no. This sounds awful. I don’t think you should get a Bronco. Are you sure this is right? Who are these people and they represent Fords marketing budget? No, I think this is a bad idea and you need to wait.”

Well I don’t really know what to say. I’ve been all in even with all the changes and disappointment in updates since the release, but now the wife is doubting. Not sure but may be going back the truck route. Not sure.

Just confused at this point.
You never quit on your Bronco !

There is actually a discussion thread on Bronco Nation about this subject. Not a ton of info, as of yesterday.
It is my hope that Ford jumped on the issue in the Bronco Nation and addressed it. If Ford addresses the issue immediately, it would go long ways to restoring trust in the forums and process.

I guess it is the challenge in the automotive world, sufficient reveal for marketing buzz, but not so much that you get out on a limb too far. In today's world folks will complain either way, that is the ultimate challenge.
