Yea i heard and understand it... Just that before the price increase, it was sitting at 2k more instead of 8-10k.... More close to my budget.People shouldn't be surprised that a vehicle with standard skid plates, no disconnect, no MGV is less than a BL with the same options as WT has standard. The BL is and has always been the vehicle destined to be the most expensive. You cannot build a WT into what a BL can be. You can build the BL to exceed the features of a Wildtrack.
Yep, you are right. My bad.... But i cant built rock rails on the Canadian site loll. They dont show as options... Yet!Just make sure you take everything into account like bumpers, bash plates And rock rails. I think the way to compare them is to build up a WT to match a BL. If you don’t, the comparison is further off than you might think.
Hopefully Ford will rectify it. There's obviously still issues with B&P. Maybe they are just fishing. Poor practice, but they've done more than a few questionable things already...Yea i heard and understand it... Just that before the price increase, it was sitting at 2k more instead of 8-10k....

I don't understand the thermostat thing that's gone on lately. Someone has started a vicious rumor. The Bronco will come with a thermostat. It also has nothing to do with climate control being automatic.I can’t figure out why I’m being such a little bitch about wanting mine optioned through the roof. I’d kill for a stock ass base ass 72 bronco with hand crank windows. Yet when it comes to a new one I’m pissed I can’t get a heated steering wheel for a reasonable price? So maybe I should get a base. I seriously hate manual ac though. If anyone knows a way to put a thermostat in aftermarket, I’m all ears. I hate aftermarket but $6,500 for a $20 thermostat is dumb.
Another thought, a base wrangler on b&p is $33k. You can get them from a dealer for $25k, maybe less sometimes. Msrp is basically the most you’ll ever pay for a car, by design. People want to feel like they’re getting a deal, it’s built into our brains. Yet we’re on here ready to pay msrp acting like that’s what Ford actually gets for these things after the initial run. Maybe they do, or maybe they don’t and is suckers pay $7500 more than we should habe. There’s a serious chance of that. I am down to pay some premium to get one ASAP. Then again, having a car that draws attention is not fun. A couple of my current cars get every shmuck on the street coming over to take a look and ask dumb questions. Not that I’m a hater, but if they cared about cars, they’d have an interesting one too. So a new Bronc may get me 4 months of being accosted by strangers then an $8k hit when I sell it. Or I could skip my rezo and punch myself in the nuts now.
The true MY’21 Base/BaseThey won't have these on lots; ever.
Look at wranglers. Sure you can B&P one that's 32k but find one on the lot. Good luck because you won't. Dealers don't order them that way. The only people getting a Bronco under 30k are reservation holders that order barebones and my guess is there won't be many as the first option most will add is an automatic transmission and even if they ad nothing else they'll be over 30k.
None of this is really the topic of the thread.
72 is wild and hard to wrap my head around. I'm guessing with average cost of vehicles going up and salaries remaining steady, this is what happens.Before buying a new car earlier this year, I read up on how to get a good deal and avoid overspending. Focusing on monthly payment was pretty much what NOT to do. Sales persons would be crawling over each other to land that customer, lol.
