I brought some props with me for pictures at the Kansas Rocks event. These are the same red 4 door Broncos that toured St Louis, are in Kansas City now and are heading to Omaha, Springfield and Arkansas. The event crew hosting the roadshow were great and super helpful.

- Edit - Since I don't think anyone reads page 6. This nifty thread has the Bronco roadshow schedule.
https://www.bronco6g.com/forum/thre...dealer-add-your-findings-to-first-post.14479/
The travel schedule for these two Broncos: St. Louis, Kansas Rocks, Kauffman Stadium KC, Omaha, Kansas City KC Live, Springfield, Fayetteville, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville (two days), Jackson MS, New Orleans (two days), Baton Rouge, Lafayette LA, West Monroe LA (May 4th) And then after that maybe 4 hours west of Monroe...... -Edit-


- I'm 6'2, 250. Sitting in the drivers seat, the B pillar is close to my shoulder. I think the 2 door with the B pillar 3" further back will be an improvement for shoulder space.
- For those counting on regularly carrying 5 people in the Bronco, the person stuck in the middle of the back seat better be pretty small. I think that by the time a child has outgrown a booster seat they may start griping about the space in the middle.
- I fit in the back seat but am thankful that I won't be riding there.
- I got a report of 17 MPG with "hard" highway driving. Both Bronco's were 2.7 liter Badlands with 33" tires.
- The rear seats recline as much as an airline seat in cheap economy (about 3/4"). I was told that to fit all four doors in the rear cargo area the rear seats needed to be in their fully upright and locked position though.
- The net pockets in the doors may be fine for Juice Boxes and skinny water bottles. I wonder how long the bungee cords will hold up before they stretch out?
- Old school carabiners do clip into the Molle grid but did require a bit of wiggling.
- Based on my measurements, the Medium moving box pictured in the rear cargo space will just fit in the 2 door cargo space.
- The rifle case is 45" long and the shotgun case is 52" long.
- I should have brought some golf clubs to see how they fit. I'm thinking that a rear seat may need to be laid down for a large golf bag.
- The Broncos up close and personal are awesome vehicles. It's going to be hard to wait for delivery.

Thanks for the write up and photos!

Really appreciate the cases photographed like that. Any idea how they might fit under the back seats?
I don't think there is enough space for a gun case under the rear seats. I didn't check that out though.

Small interior expected, cup holders - who cares, but 17 MPG is just not acceptable.
Its a cube, I know, but the engine isn't large and the weight isn't world ending. 17 is trash
cancelling?

I agree on the bungee cords. I don’t see those lasting.
I should have measured but the space in the door pockets is maybe 2" deep. The Dickey's cup is about 3 1/2" in diameter where it meets the bungee cord and you can see how stretched it already is plus the cord actually bent in the cup a bit.

Thank you. Lots of varied real world stuff for context. I guess I will have to fold down the seats for the pelican hard sided cases:( (not a real surprise, since the bronco is smaller than a Tahoe.....)

I'd like to think that I can get 18 to 20 MPG out of the Bronco. To compare, my wife's supercharged Q7 gets about 19 mpg. But... that Q7 drops to 12 MPG if I hook up any trailer to it. (I may be the only person in the US who has ever towed a trailer with a Q7).

My point is that a car like the Q7 is designed to perform for optimal fuel economy within a very narrow window. Outside that window all bets are off. The Bronco is designed to perform across a much broader window. large chunky off road tires, aerodynamics of a brick, etc. and 17 to 20 isn't unexpected. Drive it at 55 on the standard OBX tires and who knows, low to mid twenties?

In this neck of the woods you will get run off of any highway if you only do 55.

Were those seats leather trimmed or MGV? Some the photos look darker and appear to be leather with slight pebble texture, but the last photo showing the rear head rests looks like lighter color gray in MGV.
