I spent a long time talking to Ford’s marketing department and three times I listed with the Badlands model and the V6 how one can’t select the 1) Hard Top MIC, 2) Storage Bag, 3) Hard Top Sound Deadening Headliner, 4)Roof-Rails with Cross Bars to begin with....there’s a lot more out there (protective coating, bush guard, any rack accessory that requires Roof-Rails). I was told not all options are available on all models repeatedly, I repeatedly said if I build up a different model I can get these options and after 25 minutes they asked me to list the options, when I asked them them to repeat what I had listed three times, they couldn’t. I question if they even listen to what their customers say, after all they only confirmed they are adding more options, ones we probably can’t get with the Badlands V6.....

You sum everything up very well how so much is not ready for prime time or Ford made some very stupid Engineering and Marketing decisions to have to put so many limitations on the product.

My concern, is that when we are sitting there ordering (in less than a month), our Salesperson will not have the answers we need regarding a specific item, accessory or feature. And I am not knocking my Salesman either....it would be lack of communication and knowledge from Ford. We must know exactly what we are ordering and what we will be receiving. CAN A DEALER/SALES PERSON CHIME IN HERE ? Thanks
The trouble truly is that we all know far more than the dealers and sales folks. Just how it is.

I was able to add Sound Deadening to hardtop today on Wildtrak. Still doesn't work for the Badlands.:rolleyes:

Don't know if its been brought up yet, but it wont let you select Light Bar and Pod lights together.. even though it has been shown on vehicles.

I'm not expecting a big change. Maybe a few tweaks to graphics and some new accessories. Then hopefully some bug fixes. Other than that I don't see much change.

Yep...that makes no sense at all. At ordering time....this better be different. A bug in B&P, who knows. I love FORD but B&P needs some fixes and repairs.

Looks like an update may be happening now!?! Rendering engine on Build and Price is not functioning any more, a sure sign that changes are afoot

It’s always been there, at the bottom just before the list of everything you added. Just under the drop down tab for the winch and towing options.
