Is the $495 Sound Deadening option different than the sound deadening that is included in the High Package?
Yes. They are different.

The accessory In B&P is panels that are added to the inside of the hardtop.

I’m just hoping for the mid package to be available with a manual transmission.

Right now if I add the mid package to a Black Diamond it automatically switches to the 10 speed auto.

I don’t even want most of the stuff in the mid package, I just want heated seats.

Sadly the Jeep wins on heated options you can get heated seats and steering wheel as a stand-alone package. Depending on trim it does add the convenience package but I can live with that.

Don’t hold your breath unfortunately.

If they come out of left field with a CWG last minute, I will eat a pineapple pizza. Make it deep dish even. (Technically it would be a casserole then and I wouldn’t feel so bad. 🤷🏼‍♂️).

An SE EcoSport (Fords cheapest model) comes STANDARD with heated seats and starts at $24,749 CAD, a mere 600 bucks more than the base S. There are 2 trims above it as well. My BASE VW Golf came with heated seats standard. There is simply zero excuse for me to have to pay 52k for a BL and have to pay another 2k to get heated seats. I understand packaging to get people to upgrade, but this is ridiculous. If they don't calm down with some of this blatant price gouging for features (stand alone CW pckg for Jeep is like 700 bucks and has a heated steering wheel) I'll be looking elsewhere, which is really unfortunate as this vehicle has a ton of potential.

I am also wondering about this. Also to ask you and anyone else, if it isn't included do you think it is worth $495? I keep including it in my builds because I don't think it may be an easy add later.

Hot Heads or Boom Mat offer aftermarket hardtop insulation and it is less than $495. You have to stick it in, but it is not hard.

Someone asked at one of the events, and was told the sound insulation in the High package is supposedly extra material in the door and side panels and maybe carpeting.

It's good to know that the doors will be quiet while stored in the garage.

Great add regarding the insulation, I began to wonder that myself. I ran Badlands BnP for the V6, the Hard-Top MIC is now included. Great change Ford! In looking at the pictures the top looks like my BMW with the hard points there for a rack, brush guard? Add the winch and voila.... It is a great to have the Bronco back...although it’s somewhat less $$ for Ford if options go aftermarket...
