Anybody else concerned that we are 79 days away from 2021 and he could only get a Bronco with no engine? Pretty damning indication of their current progress IMO.

Just a little explanation of how and why he reviewed the prototype Bronco.

Auburn University plate right behind him. War Eagle!!

Nice little explanation of everything that went into making this happen.

I generally like Doug's reviews. Doug put out about three reviews a week, so I understand if he doesn't read these boards every day for the latest info like most of us. Might not be the most in-depth review but I still enjoyed it.

I do wish they could have let Doug get access to one of the functional Broncos at the Bronco Super Celebration. Kind of like the LLOD video.

No because they have been showing fully drivable and complete trucks to the public for a while now.

Why they chose to give him and early prototype I can't say but it is in no way any indication of their current progress; anyone that's saw the bronco at Tennessee could tell you that. Or you can watch the videos for yourself.

Ehh. Sometimes you get your hopes up that RCR will actually go into the unique parts or social standing of a car, then he spends the entire video on a tangent. The Dodge Caravan episode was a huge disappointment with some erratic volume shifts to make it that much worse.
Why i like his show, you dont know what to expect

Did anybody notice this: paint chipped off on the rear door lower hinge?
I'm pretty sure I've seen it before on a red showroom unit.
Hopefully they will fix this issue...

Unfortunately, I don't see that as an issue that will likely get fixed, but hopefully I'm wrong. Any time you have two painted metal objects that rub against one another, it's going to experience wear. They may have done better with a black powder coating or interior latch mechanism but I'm not an engineer, so what do I know lol.

It's probably likely late in the game for a full fix for this but I wonder if shifting something on the tailgate or hinge just a millimeter or two might fix it. I'm sure they are well aware of the issue.

I won't be too fussed about it. A scratch or mark here and there isn't much of an issue to me. I may, if this issue makes it to production, throw some helicopter tape over it,

The way this guy talks about the base model you wouldn't think it comes with wheels. It actually is well equipped with power windows, remote locks, cruise which are not included on the base model of most trucks. It includes everything that makes bronco a bronco, removable doors, windows, and 4x4. Considering it gets expensive in a hurry moving up, I think the base model is a compelling choice for those not wanting to mortgage the house. Leather wrapped steering wheel and heated seats do nothing for me, and the less things automatic the better!! How much to omit the touchscreen??

Dude...that thing looks insane on 37s haha. Awesome. How tall is Doug, does anyone know? I suspect he’s in the 6’0” to 6’3” range.
I believe, in the video, he says he is 6’4”.

2. Outer Banks does not come standard with 12" screen - 5:25
3. Manual transmission is available on Sasquatch - 11:40
4. Interior color accents are not tied to the exterior color but the trim level - 13:35
5. Fighter Jet Gray is not a color offered with the Bronco - 27:38
6. Wildtrack does not come with all 8 G.O.A.T modes (no Rock Crawl) - 28:57
