I thought that was leather just looking at it. Vinyl is definitely the way to go. Still hate that orange stitching though.

I would also like to add that I was really surprised at the small cargo room in 2 door. If you need any real luggage/hauling room, be ready to put back seats down or get a roof rack. Its just me and the mrs., so I am not concerned, but for others it could be a deal breaker.

I was very surprised how small the 2 door is. I love it.
Getting us a little nervous, I can't actually picture the size and whether or not my wife will be happy with it. She wants a 2-door but I also want a useful amount of vehicle for $50k. She's coming from a Mercury Milan and previously a 2nd-gen Prius. It needs to be an appreciable increase in cargo space from those.

I tried printing some 3D models of the Bronco, Flex, and Milan just so I could physically hold and compare the size of each vehicle. Unfortunately it's hard to get accurate pictures (especially a month ago) and the model ended up off-scale. Different photo heights and lenses will change how the 2D images scale.

Marine grade vinyl generally is twice as UV resistant as automotive fabric. That's part of why I want it, since I'll likely have the top off for 6-8 months of the year. It is also antimicrobial and mold resistant.
I was considering leather. Debating the BD vs OB. I live in FL, so thinking the wash out floors for the beach were a good idea! I understand I can’t get the wash out floors on OB!

I think part of the problem has been everyone has been looking at the CO one with a 2" lift and 37s. Think that has given the perception its bigger than it really is. Its really and truly not much bigger than an Early Bronco. I honestly think I can haul more stuff in the back of my Veloster N with the seats laid down than you can the 2dr Bronco.

I was surprised at how much CO looked yellow.
I surprisingly really liked the silver (very bright).
CG was much darker than I expected..

BETTER IN PERSON- A51, Silver, LB
WORSE IN PERSON-CO, AMB, CG
AS EXPECTED-all the rest

please know, this just my opinion, other people can and do feel differently. That’s what makes the world go around ?
maybe Ford should call it:
CYBER YELLOW

If you're nervous about size/space, it's rather simple. If you'd be happy with a 2 door Jeep, you'll like the 2 door Bronco. If you'd prefer the 4 door Jeep, get the 4 door Bronco. If you don't like the size/space of either Jeep, the Bronco is not for you. Go visit your nearest Jeep dealer and put your mind and at ease. The Broncos are just a bit bigger than the Jeeps.

Lol its so hard to tell if thats good or not. I think it looks metallic? I was googling Carbonized Gray Bronco and some of the images look very light gray... just bizarre looking. But again, I have YET to see a Bronco test vehicle or whatever in Carbonized Gray.

FWIW Carbonized Gray on a Mach-e. Indoors obviously(there are some other pictures floating around of a Grey Mach-e outside), and yes it is metallic.

edit: found the outdoors one

Side-view went pretty decent. It was front view that got screwed up. I think I accidentally used a non-sasquatch Side, then Sasquatch front picture. With so many new pictures available, I may give it another shot once i finish my lane-keeping project.

Anyone else notice that the bull bar's Allen-head screws are already rusting?

Not a good advert for a "Ford Performance by ____" part.

Yep it's good to have the options of 2 or 4 door models for different uses. I keep in mind the EB got this thing started. People loved and still love the EB. EB was 2 doors and sized like the new 2 door. I'd have to have a really good need for the 4 door capacity, to take me away from the 2 door.
