I'll post updates as fast as possible for you, but keep in mind, there are some things that dealers are not allowed to share.

How much will it cost to reserve a Bronco? Reservations will cost $100.
Is the $100 refundable? Yes, automatically with reservation cancellation.
Will reservations be fulfilled in the order placed? Reservations will be fulfilled in approximately the same order received, based on final ordering and production of similarly configured Broncos. All reservations will be completed before production of stock units begins.
Can customers “game” the reservations by ordering more than one? Customers will be limited to no more than two reservations per ford.com customer account.
When will customers be able to finalize their reservations? Reservations open on July 14th and will be finalized when customers complete the process with your dealer; that’s expected to be July for Bronco Sport and December for Bronco.
Can customers update their dealer selection for their reservation? Customers can reach out to Ford Customer Support for assistance should they need to change Dealers.
Tell me about the all-new Bronco models. The all-new Bronco two-door and first-ever four-door models are the flagships of the all-4x4 Bronco brand family of vehicles, ready to deliver thrilling experiences with heritage-inspired style, smart off-road technology that provides the goes-over-any type of terrain (G.O.A.T.) confidence to tackle tough terrain, plus ingenious human-centered design insights to elevate all-levels of outdoor enthusiasts adventures.
What are the trim series for Bronco two and four-door models? Bronco will be available in seven series at launch. These include Base, Big Bend, Black Diamond, Outer Banks, Wildtrak, Badlands and a First Edition. There will also be an available Sasquatch package on all series for owners who want even more Bronco capability.
What comes with the Sasquatch package? This package includes 35-inch-diameter mud terrain tires on 17-inch black high-gloss alloy beadlock-capable wheels, electronic transfer case, electronic-locking front and rear axles with 4.7:1 final drive ratio, high-clearance suspension that adds up to 1.2 inches of extra lift (1.0-inch front, 1.2-inch rear) and larger fender flares, and heavy-duty position-sensitive Bilstein shock absorbers. Sasquatch, which comes standard on Wildtrak and First Edition, can also be specified for every other Bronco model.
What ground clearance is improved by adding the Sasquatch package? With up to 1.2 inches of increased lift, plus larger 35-inch diameter tires, the Sasquatch equipped Bronco two-door improved 3.2 inches to 11.6 inches of ground clearance (up from 8.4 inches) and on fourdoor models, 11.5 inches of ground clearance (up from 8.3 inches).
Which design cues does the all-new Bronco take from the first-gen Bronco? The all-new Bronco pulls a number of design cues from the first-gen Bronco, including iconic proportions and character lines, round LED headlamps, encapsulated grille, offset cluster, and swing gate
with full-size tire. In fact, our design team digitally scanned a first-gen Bronco to stay faithful to its iconic proportions and looks.
How much will Bronco cost? Bronco will have a starting MSRP of $29,995 (including destination and delivery). Customers can reserve one today for $100 at ford.com.
Which architecture is the Bronco two- and four-door based on? The all-new Bronco two- and four-door models feature a Bronco-variant of Ford’s new second-generation global midsize truck architecture. This even more rugged and off-road capable architecture is similar to
the Ford Ranger and built alongside the midsize truck at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant.
When does Bronco go on sale? Bronco will start arriving in dealerships next spring.
What is Built Wild Extreme Testing? As a notch beyond the Built Ford Tough truck cycle, Bronco engineers add additional series of testing in the high California desert of Johnson Valley, utilizing several trails, including the King of the Hammers brutal off-road competition terrain
to help make Bronco better, stronger and ready to outperform for years to come.

Is the manual transmission available on the 2.7-liter EcoBoost? Will it come later? No. We have specifically designed the Bronco sevenspeed manual application for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine.
Is the manual transmission available on both two- and four-door models? Yes.
Is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost the standard one or the Mustang’s High Performance Package unit? The Bronco has its own version of the standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. While sharing parts at the engine’s core, the engine has been developed and equipped to deliver on the Built Wild Extreme Testing cycles that ensure confidence in grueling off-road conditions.
How much horsepower and torque will each engine have? The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 produces a projected 310 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque and a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder produces a projected 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque.
What are the final drive ratio options for Bronco? Bronco is available with four different final drive ratios: 3.73:1, 4.27:1, 4.46:1 and 4.7:1.
Which type of front axle does Bronco use? Bronco comes with an independent front suspension (IFS).
Why did Ford go with an independent front suspension? Bronco is the future of off-road, and to deliver the best combination of off-road capability and comfort, an independent front suspension (IFS) is the best solution. Additionally, an available disconnecting front stabilizer bar provides additional wheel travel over challenging terrain.
What about the rear suspension? The all-new Bronco has a five-link solid axle rear suspension optimized off-road performance across a wide variety of terrains.
Is Bronco meant for more high-speed driving and not rock crawling? Bronco is meant for all types of off-road driving, including rock crawling and high-speed off-roading. It’s engineered to excel especially at higher-speed off-roading – such as over 5 mph.

Why are the doors only on the four-door stowable on board? Given the two-door model’s longer doors for easier entry and exit, the doors can’t be stored in the cargo area without folding the rear seats like the four-door. [Doors should be stored vertically to avoid damage.]

Great info from an actual reputable source, thanks @Bronco Dealer. Maybe Doug (@Administrator) should pin this post to the top of the page. This place has gone to shit in the last week. It's like cousin Eddie showed up with all his kids and they're just wandering around asking random questions instead of looking at what info Ford has given us. Can we double the size of the search bar and put flashing lights on it so these yum yums can find it?

This info appears to be the same as that leaked dealer PDF from a few weeks ago, but nicely typed out. Certainly answers some questions.

I agree with you to an extent - I just posted in another thread the question of how many different threads do we need to ask the same 3 questions.

need clarity on HOW FLAT the 2 door seats fold.

This isnt fold flat in my opinion

That's a preproduction model.......the interior finishes aren't what we'll actually see - it's possible the seats just aren't working correctly and/or the front seats are too far back.

On the 4 door with roof rack, can you remove the roof panels while keeping the roof rack? eg., could I leave the rack on for my MTB's and take off the roof panels? It'd be sweet to have the open air (no roof) but have the bikes still up top!

This is from a brand new PDF. Someone else had scanned a copy and posted it, I copied the text and made it a little clearer.

Also, if anyone needs to reach me, I'm not able to answer PM's, not sure why.

Oh I know - I said it was nice to see it displayed out clearly. Wasn't meaning it as a criticism.

Does the Lux package have lane centering steering ala Tesla autopilot or is it just lane keep that steers you back in if you drift?

Since a Badlands with MT has 4.7 drive ratio M210 and M220 locking diffs, and position sensitive Bilstein shocks, besides wider beadlock capable wheels and 315 tires, what specifically does the Sasquatch package have that a Badlands Bronco without Sasquatch have?

Sasquatch package lists "high clearance suspension" seperately than the Bilstein dampers so there has to be something different. Hopefully it's cleared up soon
