There are a lot of 4 door soft tops where?
Every '21 that did not ship with a MIC.
And the soft top is/was the normal build. Hardtop except on 2 door was always an option.

I could see them building a fixed roof version for upscale. Land Rover is all fixed roof, although you can get a Range Rover Evoque with a softtop.

There used to be a weird Nissan but otherwise in a softtie only Jeep is the competition, and you can get a Jeep with a fixed roof

Stop drinking the Kool-Aid. There's only roughly 70,000 Broncos out there so far, and many of them are going to dealers at mark up prices, while the roughly 120,000 pre orders from 2020 that still aren't fulfilled linger. Remember Dirt Mountain and Snow Mountain?
You can go ahead and dream about how awesome the yet unrevealed Heritage, Oates, or King Ranch or whatever the newest du jour version might be, but they still haven't built or delivered the earliest configurations. You can't even order a freaking winch unless you order an Everglades version. That's wrong since they showed a winch option in the earliest marketing.
Since you aren't actually driving a Bronco now, stop the mental masturbation and demand that they build what they said they would and focus on the Bronc you ordered or one that is at least reasonably available in production in the next 6-18 months rather than dreaming of a yet unrevealed Raptor King Ranch Soccer Mom version. Pardon me, but your mindless daydreaming lets Ford off the hook. Don't allow such charms to overpower your reason.
Stop the madness. Build Broncs Now!

This! I ordered exactly what I wanted. A four door badlands with every option minus the hard top.

I have the top down all the time and love taking it on vacation and having the ability when I get there to drop the top. You can’t put a hard top in a hotel room while you go wheeling one day.

I would also trade mine away in a heart beat for a Raptor Bronco with ventilated seats. So I’m in for more options when/if they make it.

Everyone thinks their ideal Bronco should be everyone’s Bronco. It does not work that way.
Lol I’d sell mine for one with ventilated seats !

To quote Men at Work,"Can't you hear, can't you hear the Thunder? You better run, you better take cover"

The Steeda on in metallica or carbone gray something shit is a tad expensive but they know to build street truck.

Youngsters, life ain't all about playing in the dirt. You may want to lift while other guys like to drop.

Sounds like they might put more sound deadening, nicer materials, and more features in a Bronco.
Improvements would be welcome. However, I don't see Ford closing the wide gap between F150 and Bronco quality anytime soon. Not while they are selling as many as they can make in an unanticipated windfall. In the long term it will be interesting to see if the toy-like feel of the Bronco remains or if they chase the comfortable transportation market.

As for our beloved Bronco and Rangers, if you ever drove a 90's GMC Typhoon or Syclone then you would appreciate a street racing Bronco.

A Lowered AWD with 3.5V6 Bronco would tear up a lot of blacktop and interstate.

Some of you dream of Moab while some of us dream of Deals Gap, NC.
If you know about "The Dragon" then you know it ain't the road for your Bronco Raptor unless you plan to go slow and enjoy the view.

None of this is a surprise because you knew they would add/make more comfortable to get people who already have a Bronco to get new ones . I think in 2 or 3 years there well be a lot of used 4 door soft tops for sale because so many people settle for them just to get a Bronco but by 2024 I would have just gotten mine 2 door .
There will be a lot of used 4 doors for no other reason than people are ordering them at a 4:1 clip compared to 2 door.

Most Bronco customers are not on B6G and had no clue about flipping commodities to get a better build date. Even here there’s a pretty narrow group of people who truly caved on what they wanted.

The Cyclone was no joke. I never got the privilege to drive one but I have seen them in action. They’re fast now let alone 30 years ago.

I still very rarely see any others around Winston-Salem.
I’m seeing a few now- cactus gray, white, silver. I’m in a race red badlands.

How about:

1. Give it a better dashboard. We know they can with both the Ranger and the Raptor Bronco. At the very least, get rid of the digital tach and turn the analog speedo into a tachometer.

2. How about a real parking brake.

3. Give me a real key and not push button start.

Of course, this is not the direction they are going. I could see them fixing the dash at some point though.

I predict. There is a smaller hybrid engine/transmission combo for longitudinal applications. The fleet F150, Bronco, and Ranger would benefit greatly. Also, they’ve promised to electrify these ICE powertrains and the 3.5 Powerboost seems highly unlikely.

I’ve only seen two other FE’s in the area, CG and CO, both 2D and both in the showroom at Parkway Ford (I didn’t buy from them but use them for service).

Mine is Lightning Blue. I’ve see CO, CG, A51, and Rapid Red around here.

Me also! If they announce ventilated seats tomorrow for the 2023, I would order my exact Bronco over again with whatever package they came with.

And don’t think I don’t know about Katskins. There’s are not as good as any factory system. I still might get them if Ford won’t make it an option.

I’m still hopeful they will one day build enough Bronco Raptors and add ventilated seats that I could upgrade.
