Been looking at the computer generated images on the Ford website and noticed something that conflicts with prior notions. Is the grille for the First Edition going to be the same grille from Badlands? If not will that be an option? That is the better looking grille.
I may be in the minority, but I wish we had a way to pick grilles. I like the grille that looks the most like the original Broncos, which seems to be the lower trims for some reason.

And see I like the honeycomb ! Just another example of how choices would be cool...

You’ll probably be able to swap grilles after anyway. I swapped the grill on my F-150 to the honeycomb grille after I bought it.

One of my two favorite grilles. I think it's on the Black Diamond, but of course I would want it with the signature LED headlights. Not even sure if this grille would be compatible with the signature headlights.

Does anyone even know the difference between Sport Mode and Baja Mode? Like, for certain?
So, I found a press release from 2017 for the Raptor describing the different modes, and below is what it says for Sport and Baja modes. Obviously it won't be direct carryover, but it's likely similar.

Sport

Mountain passes are no longer just for Mustang, thanks to Raptor sport mode. For spirited on-road driving, sport mode increases throttle response and provides a sportier steering feel – along with quicker shifting. The transmission holds gears longer to keep you in the power band.


Baja


Baja mode is where Raptor eclipses the competition. Designed for high-speed desert running, Baja mode places the vehicle in 4 High, AdvanceTrac is programmed to the least intrusive settings, and the throttle map is adjusted for more linear power and improved engine response to give the hardcore off-road driver greater control. The transmission has quicker shifts and holds gears longer – keeping the vehicle in its power band.

Raptor's other modes (Normal, Weather, Mud/Sand, and Rock Crawl) are also on there.

It took me a couple hours but that’s because I also swapped out the headlights which are more difficult to do. If you are comfortable popping some tabs and removing some bolts it’s really straight forward. There will likely be YouTube videos posted that show you how to do it if you decide to go that route.

The Big Bend with standard headlights has the same grill as the Outer Banks, Wildtrak, and First Edition with signature headlights. Hence standard and signature headlights are the same shape, so grills should be interchangeable.

snooping around the Ford Bronco web site looking at First Edition Interior Features it lists Rubberized Flooring. I hope this is true. But the General description of the FE states that it has the interior of the Outer Banks, which has carpet flooring.

Any thoughts or information would be appreciated.

Rubberized floors with removable carpet mats, as I understood it.

Can you think of any reason why you couldn't use Baja as a sport mode / on the road if you've got First Edition/Badlands that doesn't have the proper sport mode?

Seems to be conflicting info on FE. Somewhere else shows the 'honeycomb' grille on the FE.

Interesting this article said FE gets same grille as Big Ben, Outerbanks and Wildtrak. Where are you referencing it gets Honeycomb Grille.

No, just shift it out of 4wd like raptor guys do=better than sport mode. Just did this last week in my buddy's Raptor.
