My dream build from what I’ve been given is a BD Sasquatch V6.
But wife wants the 12 inch screen and some tech. I would love to have heated seats, heated steering wheel , and remote start as one package.
To get a “cold weather package” you have to get lux. Which means you have to go badlands.
And spend thousands on other stuff I don’t want.
It’s unfortunate, but business as usual by ford. I guess. I’m buying a bronco no matter what. But I wish I wouldn’t get killed for what I want
My friend, you are not the only one. I too will be basically getting a lux Badlands SAS'd, etc for basically the same reasons. Hopefully, it will be a quality truck and in a couple of years it will be paid off and we'll just enjoy it.

I love these guys that act like they wouldn't bat an eye if their wife bought a $60,000 purse. :ROFLMAO:
Or maybe they trust their partner not to make poor decisions? Or they have my money, your money, and our money?

I'm with you but that's how they make money, get you interested in the vehicle and then make you buy an expensive package or trim to get one thing you want!

If that works for you great, but there are many ways to skin the cat and if everyone is happy it's not wrong.

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.
...in the divorce proceedings, she gets the house and your Bronco. Well played. ;)

You guys getting the upscale packages just because your wife wants them...will she be the primary driver, will you only have one vehicle?

If the answer is "no" to either question, then just man up and say you're gettin them because you want them. It's okay. My wife drives my vehicle maybe once a month or less. She knows "my vehicle, my choices". Her vehicle is loaded to the max, because that's how she wanted it. And I pay for it, because "happy wife, happy life"...

...but I don't option my vehicle for no one but me.

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 just priced out a 2021 Wrangler Rubicon and selected the 3.6 Pentastar with a 6sp manual.

The turbo, E-Drive and diesel were all optional engine choices.

For manual Yes .. Automatic No .. Also if you go with the 8HP75 Trans it goes to the additional $4k diesel engine automatically. I never checked manual tho ..

Fully agree with you. Perhaps too many "Series" and the separation of Tech, having to go up in Series to get, paying thousands for items you don't need....not sure what to say, poor planning? I am staying BD and there are things I would like, such as the 12" screen....but I am not going to waste $$, I can use that $$$ on accessories I really want.

Well, that would be engine/transmission combination, not engine choice.
