I love the tech in the Bronco and the GOAT Modes. I find myself not using them when off roading due to the notifications. Every time the vehicle is power cycled there are 8 steps I had to take during this last Snow wheeling trip. I can turn the vehicle on/off 8 times an hour over ~ 4 hours of wheeling for a total of 256 steps!
  1. Notification: Return to Sand Mode?, OK
  2. Notification: Tire Low, OK
  3. Notification: To Exit 4L Shift to N, OK (but I don't because I want to be in 4L not 4H)
  4. Disengage the Sta-bar
  5. Notification: Sta-Bar Disconnected Sta-Bar Reconnects over 20 MPH, OK
  6. Engage the rear locker
  7. Turn off the front camera
  8. Turn off the park distance sensors
Now this is very much a first world problem, having said that it seams o easy to fix. @Ford Motor Company Pretty please! Here are some things that would make this so much better!

  • Be able to customize each GOAT mode, BMW does this with their M driving mode: For example I pretty much want the camera, sta-bar, and park distance sensors off inthe off road goat modes.
  • Be able to make a custom GOAT mode:
  • Be able to set a different target tire pressure for the off road GOAT modes. I am pretty much never going to be at 39 PSI
  • Make notification like sta-bar disconnected similar to the rear seat occupant check where I only have to deal with it every 6 months.

There are only 2 things that the GOAT modes do that you can't just do yourself -- adjust steering sensitivity, and adjust throttle sensitivity. So apart from those two things, you can do all the rest of the stuff that a GOAT mode does for you manually. Although every time you power cycle the vehicle, you are going to be re-enabling a lot of that or seeing those notifications - so for "button pushing" - not a lot is really going to change.

I do think it would be great if you could customize the modes.

You can use Forscan to adjust the low tire pressure notification if you want, but I don't think anyone has figured out StaBar or anything else.

I don't disagree on all the notifications - that is nanny mode. But why do you keep turning the car off? 8 Times in an hour is every 7-8 minutes. Why not idle?

I would prefer a lot of things be manually operated, especially, the transfer case. Nobody makes anything like either of us are looking for and never will. We're lucky the Bronco actually came back at all considering the crap manufacturers are putting out to get those first 1-2 standard deviations.

I agree with avoiding GOAT modes.

Ha ha, I prefer no turn signals!
FIFY, saw you like BMW 😁
