Sort of
But not really
Jeep has a cold weather package.
Heated seats, steering wheel, and remote start. So thought ford would do similar. But I was wrong. Oh well!
Jeep gets you on the engine. If not the 2.0 turbo its 5k for the diesel with other changes to the build .. or accept the unknown reliabilty of the belt driven e-torque ... body colored top and fenders not available on all trims .. reliable standard V6 pentastar now only on the Gladiator .. they all have something to get us to spend more money ... 🤷🏾‍♂️

I had the same happy wife, happy life moment. Went from Badlands with SAS and high package to Badlands without SAS and Lux package. Trying to keep my price under $55K and get something we both will enjoy has been interesting.

Ugh! I don't understand you guys that are a slave to a "wife". Do what you want! Your life is short. She isn't in control of what you want. Wake up.
That's because you're not married to the love of your life, or just not married :)

I've been saying the similar thing lately. Only from a different perspective. I don't want any tech or anything else fancy. I want bare metal floor, metal non removable roof, crank windows, am/FM radio, mechanical gauges. Basically, I want a 1969 Bronco with modern dependability. Small lift would be nice.
Why you ask....I'm currently driving an '07 XL 2 door Ranger and absolutely love it. That, and a base Bronco with Sasquatch here in Canada is $52 000, and full of stuff I don't need or want.
I realize some safety tech has to be there, but I don't want the rest of it.

Who really needs all this extra shit?

So many 1st world problems...:unsure:
Once you have these things, its difficult to go back

My vehicle is ten years old, was 30k msrp back then, and was fully loaded with moon roof, heated and cooled seats, heated wheel, etc.
I'll be damned if I spend double that for a 2021 vehicle without most of those features. Yeah I'm spoiled but that's ok because I work for these creature comforts

I couldn't do it. Marriage should be an addition to your life, not subtractions. My Bronco will be mine with no compromises for her, just as her car is hers alone.

Agreed. Heated steering wheel? Just wear some gloves. Either that or do like I do and live in the south.
I live near the 49th parallel, pretty far north, have never felt the need for a heated wheel.

I live in PA and our winters can get cold. I love my heated steering wheel and heated seats. I would not go without it.

I work outside. Driving to my next customer with a warm seat and steering wheel is like a mini vacation. So it’s a lux for me.

I was on the same boat as most of y'all but I decided to pull the trigger on a fully loaded Hyundai Palisade for my wife and that turned my 4 door Wildtrack Lux into a 2 door Base Manual Sasquatch. Now, we'll both be happy and it will only cost me an extra $12k to have 2 cars.

Why the Palisade over the Telluride?

I am personally fine with it - would have wanted these extra add-ons anyway and, like most vehicles, you can't get everything with the lower trim levels . . . can't get leather with an XLT (but - I do agree they could have offered a specific 'Cold Weather' package . . . and probably will in the future . . . ?). And this first roll out probably limits the number of stand alone items they might want to include to streamline the build process to a degree. At the end of the day there are still a bunch of build options and it is too bad there is not one to make everyone happy - but is there ever? I really wish there was an additional interior option for the WT - that beige dash is almost enough to push me in a different direction! - but I will find a combination that I will love and if I find it to be unbearable I'll pay it off in 36 months (or less) and trade for something different when the options will probably be much less limited. IMHO.

I hate cold weather, so I would get that extra if I lived in a cold climate!

I love the heated steering wheel in my wife’s Explorer. Hers is an XLT, my F150 XLT it was not available. So far I have survived, but I would pay for it as a stand-alone. No matter how you slice it, each manufacturer packages options in ways someone doesn’t like. I am all in on BD and can also live without the hot wheel. The winch /camera issue killed any thought of high or lux for me anyway. I will end up with a winch. My wife does not like being stuck (and neither do I). 👍🏽
i have never laid eyes on a bronco inreal life but i am certian 1000% the camera issue is going to be an easy fix , at leat it will be for me so dont get all excited about the little things👍
