Thanks for the video walk around , very good

Looks like at 2:30 there is a view of the hoss coil over and what's not real clear but it looks like that coil is compressed oddly.
It would be good to know the length from eye to eye on these setups

I was lucky enough to be invited by Ford to hang out with the Badlands Overland Concept at the Moab4x4 Expo. They gave me a whopping 30 minutes with it (that I turned into 45 minutes) and this video is the result.

CORRECTION TO EVERYBODY SAYING IT DOSN'T HAVE THE SASQUATCH
It does, it is a prototype. The front and rear lockers are on this, and it is also a manual transmission so there are a lot of mismatched parts here (including the roof rack everybody keeps mentioning). Yes, I was told the morning I filmed this by the Ford handler that it IS a Prototype Sasquatch. They referenced the Filson as having the more up-to-date version of the Sasquatch goodies, so maybe get a look at that one for more details on what the Sasquatch will really look like.

Great video, i do believe more cup holders are available in the back with leather interior.

Yay, another indicator that us peasants who don’t want leather, never get thirsty while driving.....

Those were the Marine Grade Vinyl (MGV) seats that are standard on Black Diamond and Badlands (and FE). Mid package adds heated front row seats (no power though).
MGV is not standard on FE. Leather trimmed Navy Pier is the ONLY interior.

Makes you wonder what the real diameter of the 315/70 Goodyear MT Territories are versus the 34.5" diameter 35x12.5 BFGs on this concept.

EDIT: Though I think Badlands + Lux + overland extras weight has a lot to do with it too.

Ah: So the active drain is really a plug that lets water drain through the rubber floors to the passive drains that are in all the Bronco Models:

It's actually leather trimmed marine grade vinyl (MGV) (Navy Pier), so yes it's standard and the only option. You can get the same on the Badlands (leather trimmed MGV but in black) as an option.

Doesn’t say anywhere on either the Ford Bronco site or the B&P the seats are MGV. In all cases it says “leather trimmed/vinyl”. No mention of MGV. Reps at Super Cel East said it was Outerbanks interior. No MGV.

Have you seen it say MGV somewhere?

Yep, maybe you don't get "Marine Grade" with your vinyl...bummer on the FE.

Thanks Justin for the video. It was great and I appreciate your views on the Bronco from real life perspective.

Now on to more serious matters..... The reason Ford never allows us to see the engine in these prototypes is because there is a 2.7L Twin Turbo engine in there mated with a 7 speed manual transmission and they don’t want us to get too excited yet....

I can’t see that being the case since moisture would still build up under that rubber if so. I really hope that plug physically drains to the outside

Thanks for showing the side mirror camera's and rear tailgate camera in handle...I didn't know about these. Bummer on no cup holders in rear though. It would've been nice if the center section of the rear seat folded down into an armrest/cup holder location (or pass through for trunk area).
This may have been brought up already, I haven't gotten through all 12 pages but I seem to remember the 2dr back seat having cup holders. If memory serves, the wheel wells that pinch the seating to two people, provide a space for cup holders. Those in the backseat are going to need cold drinks since the air conditioning is hitting their toes.

A Badlands with 33s is 1.4 inches shorter overall height than a Wildtrak (Standard Sas and Modular top at time of this spec sheet)
Screenshot_20201023-215309.png


The difference in tires is 1.7 inches. Cut that in half and it's .85 inches higher difference for just the tires.
Screenshot_20201101-095411~2.png


So that leaves .55 inches of height the Sasquatch has over the stock Badlands.

Does that come from a Sasquatch lift or does the modular top add .55 inches???

So now take a true 35" tire (Which are .6" taller /2 =.3) on a stock Badlands suspension which is already .55" lower and you get a stuffed wheel well.
